Emerald Pharms Dispensary Review

Driving through Mendocino County on U.S. Highway 101 gives you a chance to see what this California region is best known for — wilderness, waves and wineries. You can now add “weed” to that list of highlights available right off the 101 as the cannabis community has begun to step out of the shadows. In […]

Mendocino Collective

Mendocino Generations Collective

Autumn is a time in the Emerald Triangle when artisan ganja farmers delight in the sparkling colors and aromas that emanate from cannabis flowers ripening throughout their gardens. Organic sun grown purists like myself once counted down the days when these fresh buds would at last be ready for toking, since the prior year’s aging […]

VINUM, ET AL: Wines, Waves, Wilderness…Weed

Wine ~ Waves ~ Wilderness.  That’s the Slogan You See on a Billboard on Highway 101 Near the Sonoma / Mendocino County Line. When I drive by the billboard, I can’t help but verbally augment the slogan with Weed.  It sounds so much more poetic with the added syllable. It just begs the excess of alliteration […]

Humboldt’s Craft Beverage Highlights

Humboldt County gets a lot of tourists coming to Northern California this time of year.  Many come to get away from the heat, while many come to get away from general urban madness.  As I like to tell folks who have never visited the area:  “There’s not a lot of people or traffic, and we […]

Elk Ridge Holistic

“Their personal involvement with their patient has manifested a program in which they make it possible for people with terminal illnesses, or who are especially in need, to receive their products for free.” Off-roaders whizz along a span of terrain overlooking the mountains and redwoods in the heart of Humboldt County, California where the Eel […]

The Life and Career of Renowned Horticulturist and Author Jorge Cervantes

“Cannabis is no longer a subculture, it’s pop-culture. It’s an industry worth billions, and as a movement it’s global.” As cannabis normalizes it’s easy to forget about the days when cannabis enthusiasts were outsiders. We’ve come a long way as a culture, movement, and industry. Some, including myself, can’t remember when popular strains didn’t exist. […]

Rain Grown Cannabis

Rain-grown cannabis represents salmon safe, fish friendly farming, with many other benefits to the watershed and our communities! For plants to grow, air and water need to flow. Soil (and its microbiology) provide a happy medium, and the sun provides photons to power photosynthesis. These elements all come together to form life on earth, the […]
