Craft Cannabis From Seed to Sale

At the dawn of its era, cannabis culture was dark and mysterious. At that time, people hardly knew what strains they consumed or in what conditions their weed had been grown. Since then, the art of cannabis has drastically changed. Now, the market allows you to choose the best craft cannabis of our days.

Seasoned stoners are very meticulous about their search for dank buds. They do not buy some random weed with no information about it. No stoner should take a pig in a poke. We all deserve the best of the best. That is why craft cannabis is becoming more and more popular. These are those plants that have been grown and crafted with much care. This weed has exquisite taste, top-notch effects, and prime buds. It is often combined with other craft goods, among which are many culinary examples.

Nowadays, cannabis is combined with many products to make the choice range wider. There are many microbreweries that create the finest cannabis-infused beer. They do not simply mix these two products, they choose the best strains for different types of beer that will complement each other the most. The same goes for wine. Will Cabernet taste best in combination with a Kush or OG? What terpenes suit it the most? Producers concentrate on the smallest details making the cannabis industry a craft. Coffee and chocolate are also those products that require special care when mixed with cannabis to achieve the best flavors and effects.

Consumers now have a wide choice and can select not only the type of pot they want but also the producer they prefer or even look for organically-grown plants.

There are many factors that make craft cannabis way better than the regular, standardized products. For example, the trimming of buds may seem an unimportant detail for many beginner stoners. However, weed connoisseurs know that hand-trimmed buds have a better flavor, higher potency, and more trichomes.

With the rapid growth of medical and recreational cannabis industries, we observe many changes every day. The whole industry progressed from an “underground” secret network to a legal mainstream in no time. There are even working standards that regulate the operation of dispensaries and the quality of weed.

The usage of organic methods in marijuana production appeals to patients who use weed for medical purposes, as well as many people who simply oppose the use of harsh chemicals. Craft marijuana grown without pesticides requires special attention to prevent the appearance of mold and spider mites. Though this weed is harder to take care of, the special temperature and humidity control result in a top-notch harvest.

For many cannabis users, consuming organic marijuana is essential. Regardless of whether you use it for medicinal or recreational purposes, it is not fun to risk your health buying the product from an untrusted source. That is why it can be so important to have a reliable seller who can give you organic weed or to get the skills necessary for growing cannabis organically at home.

Though there are many companies that specialize in craft cannabis, the Emerald Triangle is mostly associated with the birth of it. This region includes three counties in North Carolina that have been cultivating the plant since the 1960s—Humboldt County, Trinity County, and Mendocino County. Here, cannabis is grown with quality in mind. It is a place where even the best strains can be improved.

Marketing is what drives the art of craft cannabis. Considering the fact that the uniqueness of it goes from seed to sale, packaging and marketing are not less important than the cultivation itself. Thus, creating a beautiful product is the final task of the growers. Though the labeling and packaging regulations are strict, you can still design something interesting within the rules.

For example, packaging cannabis in sealed plastic containers is the cheapest way to go. However, more expensive glass jars can preserve the form better and are more appealing to customers. Another common attribute of craft cannabis are cork lids. Everything from the material to the design of the labels is meant to be unique and attractive.

Though many of us do not pay attention to all these details, there are always people who are ready to spend more on weed. Besides, the most important part of craft cannabis is not the price but care, love, and patience.
