Our plants are grown outdoors in the sun or in solar-powered greenhouses by a cultivation team comprised of master gardeners, botanists, and horticulturists with decades of experience. And, we use strict water management practices to protect the environment. The entire cultivation process is documented and tracked to ensure that only the best cannabis is going into your medicine.
