High-grade hemp is any hemp that has been cared for from its infancy and nurtured under the right conditions by Mother Nature herself. At Pachamama, our process starts by planting one strain of genetically superlative hemp seeds and growing them with Rocky Mountain water and an abundance of sunshine. Once they mature, we cultivate a single strain from a single farm to produce each batch of full spectrum hemp extract. This process is referred to as single-origin and it lies at the very core of high-grade hemp.
You may have heard the term “high-grade hemp” and been left wondering what it means and what makes it superior to any other kind of hemp. It all starts with the seed. From the specific genetics of a sprouting hemp seed to the drying methods used on a fully-grown and harvested plant, there are several factors that determine the quality of hemp. Likewise, the factors at play directly translate to the quality of a final CBD product. By building a good foundation for a hemp plant to thrive from the very beginning of its life cycle, you are much more likely to achieve exemplary end results.
Picture a hemp farm that’s growing only one strain of hemp for acres. With all of the seeds planted in unison, their roots intermingle and work together to support the well-being of one another. Through their intrinsic genetic connection comes a strength unattainable from the combination of varying genetics growing together. This establishes an added level of reliability to a final CBD product by creating a stable potency of terpenes, CBD and other cannabinoids. The reason for this is because every strain of hemp contains different levels of phytochemicals that transfer over to a full or broad spectrum extract.
single-origin practices create consistency
By using one strain of hemp grown on one farm, we are able to create products with plant profiles that will remain consistent and continuously provide you with constant results. To learn more about our single-origin practices, check out our blog post here .
Who is this for? Who is this committed both to CBD and to not swallowing? It’s entirely possible that suppositories could be the delivery method that finally sells me on the healing and chilling powers of CBD, but we will never know. Esquire will have to start paying me a lot more if I’m going to put things in my butt.
You knew someone was going to use the aspirational marketing speak of Goop culture to sell you joints, and Canndescent’s promise to “marry the mastery of cannabis cultivation with the canvas of your life” tells you it’s the one for the job. The Canndescent sampler pack comes with one joint each of its five strains—Calm, Cruise, Create, Connect, and Charge—and the tasting notes eschew the indica/sativa jargon of the dispensary in favor of more direct language. If it’s “time to laugh, go out with friends, or get intimate, invite Canndescent Connect.” If you’re ready to “paint, jam, code, blog, or game,” then “find your muse in Canndescent Create.” Is it “the perfect stolen moment to sink into the pastel, polyester embrace of a Golden Girls marathon and a full tube of Pringles?” Then really any of them will do, and I made that one up anyway. Maybe it’s the Oprah’s Favorite Things of it all, but these pre-rolls managed to keep the heebie-jeebies at bay, and lighting a joint has such a pleasing, analog feel to it, like putting a warm and crackly old record on a turntable. They were my favorite of the bunch, though at press time I have yet to paint, jam, or code.
Edibles intimidate me, and you know why. Everybody knows somebody who had a bite of one, got impatient because they weren’t super-stoned in two seconds, ate the whole rest of it, and then climbed a tree and now they live there. So naturally, I approached these giant granola bricks with extreme caution. My boyfriend and I each tore a tiny little piece off the corner of Atlas’s Ember Sativa Caramel Cashew and Cayenne flavor, ate it, and waited. For hours, nothing happened, then just as we were going to bed, we looked at each other and said, “Oh, no.” I was high as fuck for the next 36 hours, three of which I spent on an airplane that I briefly convinced myself I’d gotten on by accident. (Landed in Dallas—on purpose—and ate a bowl of queso before I left the airport.) Good flavor, though. If you enjoy being terrified by your snacks, go get it.
Artet is an alcohol-free cannabis spirit “drawn from the history, the culture, and the very moment of the aperitif,” because this is the way we’re talking now. It’s made with eight botanicals, though the taste is mainly “lemon peel.” I mixed a couple of Artet-and-tonics the other afternoon as we cleaned the house, and though the flavor definitely improved with a few drops of agave syrup, it was a mild, easy-drinking daytime cocktail with a subtle and quick-acting effect. I thought, “I could see myself doing this again.” And then, in celebration of the history, the culture, and the very moment of the weed aperitif, I went to the bathroom in my own home and got lost on the way back.
If luxury THC granola, weed aperitifs, and CBD pillows couldn’t make me into a stoner, nothing can.
A high-tech proprietary system so simple it confused the hell out of me, the Omura device uses “heat-not-burn” technology to “activate the terpenes without charring the plant, allowing the plant’s true flavor to shine.” What this means is that you stick a cardboard tube full of weed into one end of the device, touch a button, wait for it to heat up, and then you have one three-minute session to hit it. Whether you hit it once or as many times as three minutes will allow, the tube is spent at the end. The starter kit came with a pack of 10 tubes, half of which we wasted trying to figure out how the Omura works. The machine will only take the proprietary tubes; the proprietary tubes will not work in any other machine. In the brave new world of upscale weed products, this is exactly like having a Sega Saturn.
The last month has presented me with the perfect conditions to sample some upscale cannabis stuff and determine whether there’s one brand out there just for me, or if there is such a thing as a bespoke panic attack. It’s been an enlightening experience, and a nice variation on each day’s coffee-to-bourbon trajectory. I’m still not chill enough to be a stoner, not even a high-end weed stoner, but the quarantine period is young. Here are my findings.
