Have you ever wondered what the featured farms sticker means when you grab some of your favorite concentrates or vapes at your local dispensary? You may see logos on products from high end production labs like Cold Fire, Kalya, Real Deal Resin and Rosin Tech.

A featured farm refers to a specialized cultivation facility that focuses on growing high-quality cannabis plants specifically tailored for extraction purposes. These farms maintain meticulously controlled environments where the cultivation process is optimized to produce cannabis strains rich in desirable cannabinoids and terpenes, which are essential for creating premium cannabis extracts.
High quality featured farms employ advanced cultivation techniques, including precise nutrient management, controlled lighting systems, and climate control to ensure consistent plant growth and maximize the yield of potent and flavorful cannabis flowers. By working closely with the extraction lab, a featured farm plays a crucial role in the production of top-notch cannabis extracts by providing the lab with carefully cultivated, premium-grade plant material as the foundation for the extraction process.
