The illegal grow was uncovered at a terraced home in Arkwright Road on Wednesday (March 24), where a team of officers executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act.
Pictures show officers in white overalls entering the home equipped with cutting tools and ladders to dismantle the plants.
Lancashire Police said three men have been arrested, aged 21, 28 and 49.
All three have been arrested on suspicion of being involved with the cultivation of cannabis.
They have since been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
