The Humboldt County Sheriff Department working with CAMP (the federal Campaign Against Marijuana Planting) have set the tone for cannabis farms trying to become compliant. Despite strong efforts by the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, the Sheriff Department will not recognize good faith effort toward compliance.
As originally reported by Kym Kemp, a medical cannabis farm growing high CBD, non-psycho active varieties used to treat epilepsy and cancer patients, has been raided by the Humboldt County Sheriff Department working with CAMP. No one was arrested but all medical plants have been eradicated, chopped down, and hauled away – leaving many potential patients without medicine.

Most of us remember when growing cannabis indoors was the name of the game. It seemed everyone had an indoor set-up. Hydro was king. Most grow-rooms resembled sterile labs with bottles of fertilizer and pesticides lining the walls. Soil was almost nonexistent. Perlite, rockwool, and, hydroton were the mediums of choice. If soil was used, it was often discarded after one use, as if it had gone bad.
Thankfully times have changed. As cannabis prohibition comes to an end, emerald triangle cannabis farmers are moving back toward their farming roots. With legalization on the horizon, and faced with what most feel is an impending battle with “big marijuana,” emerald cannabis farmers are attempting to find a niche.
Most agree that it’s not going to be possible to compete in an economy of scale with big marijuana. Therefore the name of the game becomes quality and environmentally friendly small batch product. This is how small farmers across the globe have carved out a living for themselves. Small farm movements have proven that consumers will support farmers who use environmentally friendly practices to produce high quality product.

Did you know tomorrow is a cannabis holiday? Yes July 10th? It’s the national hash holiday… Why would July 10th be a cannabis holiday? Well because 7/10 upside down spells oil – its kind of like pager code if anyone can remember that besides myself.
Yes, dabs have been the rage since the early 2010’s. Dabs are essentially concentrated hash. To create “dab-able” concentrates producer’s pull out just the resin and THC from the plant. Dab-able concentrates include oil, honeycomb, crumble, shatter, and budder. But by far the most popular is oil hence 7/10 – oil upside down – and our newest cannabis holiday.
