Who is the best grower of California cannabis?
Caliva of course ;)
Much like wine, marijuana growers look to plant the appropriate strains for their environments, indoors or out.
The Emerald Triangle, comprised of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity County, is California’s most fertile cannabis region. Producing some of the world’s finest outdoor marijuana, the Emerald Triangle propagates the most sought after strains in the state. The Wall Street Journal recently hailed this region as “The Bordeaux of Cannabis”, comparing the sophisticated growing terrain to the most celebrated wine region in France.
Consumer knowledge is rapidly increasing and the desire to understand the origin of the product is evident. At Caliva, we pride ourselves on purchasing and growing the best cannabis in the state, complemented by deep rooted relationships with our farmers.
We work closely with Flow Kana whose mission statement proclaims:
We pride ourselves in being the first sustainable, sun-grown cannabis brand that embraces California values and the small farmer ecosystem. We partner, and give scale, to premier craft farmers in the Emerald Triangle who focus on small-batch boutique strains. Find us below or shop online if you’re in our delivery range. Our farmers are located in and around the Emerald Triangle. All of their medicine is grown with love under the California sun with only the best organic inputs and sustainable practices.
Flow Kana not only works with farmers to distribute their products, but also with dispensaries to educate staff and patients on products and practices.
We partner with Raw Garden, out of Santa Barbara County, to bring customers responsibly farmed cannabis:
Our commitment is to our customers and the earth. Our success lies in our ability to capitalize on our knowledge of sustainable farming, our passion to provide the best service for our customers, and our sense of responsibility to preserve the planet. Our goal is to set the highest quality standards for the industry and ourselves and then exceed them. We advocate a team approach to grow our business, from the field to your table.
Raw Garden prides itself on maintaining an informal work environment where creative thinking, respect, family values, and camaraderie are encouraged. We realize and acknowledge that our co-workers are just as much a representation of who we are as the cannabis we provide. We recognize that our company’s growth is directly correlated to how well we fulfill our pledge. It is our character, our consistency, and our caring that makes us unique and sets us apart.
BLUE BELLY FARMS
Just over the hill from Caliva, Blue Belly Farms grows some of our house favorites and looks to become a destination as cannabis tourism takes shape in 2018.
Blue Belly Mission Statement:
Our medicine emerges from a natural sanctuary in Northern California, well off the beaten path. Grown with a unique mix of pure air, perfect sunlight, fertile untainted soil, living water drawn from the earth, lovingly fed with all organic nutrients… we manifest the purest lab-tested cannabis, with our time-tested growing protocols. Our grow is protected by a natural predator, a perfect sentinel, one that enjoys making a monster meal of all the pests that would threaten our precious organic crop. Our best friend and ally on the farm is the blue belly lizard. These natural guardians of our crops are so important to our organic protections we made them our namesake!
Working with only the top cultivators, master crafters and artisans, the best manufacturers and the most elite dispensaries, we have made a sacred commitment to put our patients first. Starting with the most respected strains, faithfully rendering the finest flowers, and collaborating with the most talented extract artists in northern California, the Blue Belly brand is your assurance that from farm to flame, quality is the metric that matters most.
Much like the farm to table movement in food, we see farm practices having a tremendous impact on patient wellness and care.
Frequently Asked questions about marijuana growers
+ What is the difference between indoor and outdoor grown cannabis?
At Caliva, we pride ourselves in our relationships with farmers and purchasing some of the best indoor and outdoor cannabis in the state. Growing cannabis indoors allows growers to perfectly control the environment and nutrient levels of the plants which leads to faster bud growth and higher THC levels. When grown outdoors, cannabis is exposed to the elements which can lead to less picturesque flowers but a more full flavor and smell profile. Caliva carries a variety of indoor and outdoor cannabis from some of the best farms in California.
+ Who is one of Caliva's favorite outdoor growers?
Nestled in the hills above the Mattole River in Mendocino County, the Mattole Family Farm is on the forefront of outdoor cannabis growth. From composting local cow manure to make our soil, to utilizing strict water management practices, the Mattole Family Farm prides itself on being stewards of the land first, and farmers second. Their goal is to produce some of Northern California’s most quality, conscious-minded, organic cannabis; without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
+ Who is one of Caliva's favorite indoor growers?
Dragonfish farms, a boutique Bay Area cannabis farm, has been growing some of the state’s best indoor cannabis for over a decade. Whether they are growing their staple Red Congolese or a staple strain like Gorilla Glue, Dragonfish Farms strives to curate, cultivate and cure an experience that's safe, enjoyable, and healthy.
+ Why are cannabis genetics so important?
To grow the best cannabis, a grower must have plants with the best genetics. Just like other plants, these genetics hold the key to bud’s effects, flavors, vigor, and growth attributes. Our growers work tirelessly to replicate and refine their plants with the best genetics in order to provide the best possible final product.
