Celebrating Earth Day 2023
In preparation for this year’s Earth Day, we want to give props to some of our favorite eco-friendly brands that hold true to the idea that cannabis can be enjoyed while being conscious of our impacts on the planet.
Cannabis With a Conscience
Over 50 years ago, in 1970, a group of activists led by Senator Gaylord Nelson took to the streets to raise awareness about the potential negative impacts of industrial development on the environment around us. Since then, Earth Day has become a global celebration, a crusade for an unpolluted planet, and a day of recognition.
In preparation for this year’s Earth Day, we want to give major props to some of our favorite eco-friendly cannabis brands that hold true to the idea that cannabis can be enjoyed while being conscious of our impacts on the planet.
No Till Kings
Inspired by their preferred growing method of organic “living” soil, No Till Kings have been honing their craft to cultivate the highest quality, cleanest grade cannabis on the market since 2017. Living soil, or regenerative farming, is an old-school organic growing method with a lineage to indigenous populations worldwide.
Regenerative farming, aka “living soil,” aka “no-till” cultivation, is the idea of recreating the natural processes observed in forest soil. Forest soil is chock full of microorganisms thanks to thousands of fallen leaves and other organic materials decomposing, which feeds nutrients back into the soil. No Till Kings recreates that process by using their plant’s leaves, stalks, roots, and worms to continuously feed their soil, making it more nutrient-rich over time.
As a result of cultivating such a nutrient-rich growing medium, No Till Kings have never thrown away their soil after harvesting. This is a more sustainable way to grow cannabis because it eliminates the need for new soil every growing season. This farming practice also promotes natural pest control methods, eliminating the need for chemical pesticides.
By utilizing this cultivation method, No Till Kings produces some of the most legendary strains in organic cannabis culture and elevates their terpene profiles to their highest potential. Try their Mimosa, Gelato 41, SFV OG x Animal Mints, Cookies and Cream #2, and Jack the Ripper strains to truly experience the influence of living soil and support a company that is making sustainable cultivation and recycled ocean plastic packaging fashionable for the cannabis industry.
Raw Garden is known for their exceptional concentrates and refined Live Resins. Their award-winning cannabis oils are made with top-quality flowers that are cryogenically frozen to capture the true essence of the cultivar.
Did you know that Raw Garden’s concentrates are Clean Green Certified and have been since 2015? The Clean Green Certification program is recognized worldwide as the authority on organic and sustainable cannabis growing practices. Raw Garden exceeds those standards by using natural fertilizers, organic pest control methods, and organic soils on their farms to ensure that their customers can consume with confidence.
Supporting a brand like Raw Garden means supporting a progressive cannabis company focused on environmentally sustainable farming practices like water conservation without sacrificing quality.
Raw Garden cultivates world-class genetics that spans a wide range of terpenes and cannabinoids but tends to lean towards growing the fruity, gassy, sour flavors. Cultivars like Mandarin Mist, Yuzu Sunrise, Citrus Funk, and Banana Cookies OG are just some selections from the impressively extensive portfolio offered by Raw Garden.
Known for their delicious, potent gummies made with premium cannabis extracts with unique botanical and fruit terpenes, Wyld offers a broad range of high-quality experiences that any consumer can select to meet their needs. Wyld also incorporates minor cannabinoids with their THC extracts to make the most of the entourage effect experienced by the endocannabinoid system.
What makes Wyld’s gummies so impressive, apart from their potent effects and flavors, are the processes and values the environmentally focused company embraces as part of their mantra. For one, they have officially become carbon neutral thanks to their dedication to measuring, reducing, and offsetting the greenhouse gasses produced by their operations.
Expanding on their goals to be good to the planet, they have also developed 100% compostable packaging to address excessive, wasteful, single-use packaging in the cannabis industry. Wyld is dedicated to the health and wellness of our delicate environments by committing to planting 50,000 trees to reduce the impact of forest fires, restore critical watersheds, and advocate for balance in nature.
We wish we had time to expand on their other partnerships with organizations like One Tree Planted, The Freshwater Trust, Oregon Natural Desert Association, and the Darkwoods Forest Conservation. Stop by one of our seven shops and try Wyld’s Pear 1:1 CBG gummies, their Strawberry 20:1 CBD gummies, or their Peach 2:1 CBD gummies and learn more about why Wyld is one of the leaders of cannabis with a conscience.
