Growers across Oregon operate under an unusually high craft standard.Our industry cousins in beer and wine are the ones to thank for that. While prohibition kept us at bay from their scene, word was still getting out about our flower. But flower quality is only as good as the grower’s methodology. The spectrum ranges between the highly sterile and industrial to outdoor farmers packing chamomile flowers into sausage casings, for the purposes of pacifying soil digestion.
A good grow, regardless of scale, starts with one of two things: a clone or a seed. Cloning is the act of taking a cutting from a mature plant (preferably while in a vegetated state) then rooting said cutting with the use of water or a growth hormone. As the name suggests, you’re making a genetic copy. This process is highly popular among commercial growers due to its convenience and genetic consistency.
All brains house intelligence, to a lesser or greater extent; some brains require a state of mind. The metaphysical relationship between cannabis and our mind goes back centuries.
