Smokey's and our very own Grow Operations Manager, Scott Brady, were featured in an article from Leafly recently. We are working with the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment to help study the impact cannabis has on the environment and the role it plays in air pollution.
"Scott Brady, master grower and grow operations manager at Smokey’s 420, said that opening the operation’s doors to the state fit in with the company’s commitment to social responsibility. The company already has adopted a living soil technique to minimize waste and seeks out organic materials wherever possible. Participating in the state study followed that mission."
Organic products are a popular choice for health-conscious consumers and those interested in protecting the environment. The living soil movement is dedicated to providing a truly organic experience for those who use marijuana as medicine or for recreational purposes. By considering the benefits of living soil when choosing recreational marijuana services in Garden City, Colorado, you can ensure the best experience every time you light up in our area.
What Is Living Soil?
Organic farming typically focuses most on what needs to be left out of the process, including chemical/ synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers. By contrast, the living soil movement considers the soil in a more holistic way. By making sure that soil contains the living creatures needed to break down organic matter into the necessary nutrients, living soil advocates can produce healthier and more robust crops without the use of chemicals or other hazardous materials. This can make a significant difference in the quality of product you receive from companies offering recreational marijuana dispensary services in Fort Collins, Colorado, and the surrounding areas.
The cannabis industry is evolving steadily after a rapid growth spurt of legalization. Gone are the days of purchasing whatever strain a supplier has on hand. Instead, consumers today have countless strains, concentrates, and edibles to choose from, allowing them to be incredibly selective and specific about what kind of high they experience.
Anyone who enjoys the legal cannabis industry is probably used to noting two main things when making a purchase at their local dispensary: the THC content and the sativa/indica ratio of the product.
Casual cannabis users typically believe that the higher the THC content is, the stronger and more intense the high will be. Likewise, they also figure that sativas will all perk them up while all indicas will mellow them out.
While these beliefs are incredibly common, the truth is that they oversimplify how and why a specific weed strain produces a unique feeling.
You’ve most likely smoked a strain of sativa that left you a tad anxious, while other sativas leave you happy, energized, and ready to tackle the day. The same goes for indica. Some strains are great for relaxing and watching a flick, while others will put you right to bed. Similarly, you’ve probably heard a friend rave about a strain that just didn’t do much for you.
In order to understand these varied experiences, it’s important to remember that cannabis is a wonderfully complex plant.
It’s Not Just About THC
Budtenders at Smokey’s 420 are continuously trained with the most recent information available based on real studies and science regarding product’s THC content. It’s how many cannabis consumers decide which product to buy. Why wouldn’t you choose the strain with the highest amount of THC? Isn’t that more bang for your buck?
If this is the logic you’ve been using, keep in mind that THC content is only one indicator of how a strain or product will make you feel. Choosing your weed based solely on this factor is often compared to going to a liquor store with the mission of selecting the booze with the highest alcohol content.
There’s a reason no one does this; there’s far more to enjoy a good drink than how much alcohol it contains. Just as a sommelier will pick their wine based on a myriad of factors, true cannabis connoisseurs will pay attention to the entire makeup of the product, not just a single element.
A major influence on how strong and how unique a high will feel is based on the presence and concentration of certain terpenes.
