Emerald Triangle, Napa Valley, and Silicon Valley: Soil/Geology and Climate

IMG_20160519_143209

Over the past few months we’ve embarked upon a series comparing the emergence of Silicon Valley’s tech industry, Napa County’s wine industry, and Humboldt County’s cannabis industry. We’ve all heard comparisons like these:

“Humboldt County grows some of the finest cannabis in the world… [which] could lead to a booming niche marijuana market, the type that would make the county what Napa is to wine.” –The Revolution Starts Here by Thadeus Greeson in The North Coast Journal

“… we are the ‘Silicon Valley’ of cannabis… we have a great deal of knowledgeable people living here – a pool of people who would be useful to draw upon for information about growing.” – Welcome to Pot City! by Kym Kemp in The North Coast Journal

Naturally this has begun to stir up some local controversy.
