What is craft cannabis?
The term craft cannabis has been diluted in recent years. Technically, it should refer to cannabis that is grown in small-batches using cutting edge cultivation techniques. This produces an exceptional flower that is considered boutique by comparison to most other cannabis. For a long time, we had no idea where our pot came from, much less who the grower was and how they grew it. Craft cannabis is something that has always been around. As consumers have become more discerning, it has grown in popularity. As other craft consumer goods take off, from micro-brews to artisanal bread and coffees, farm-to-table meals are going to pair nicely with seed-to-sale cannabis. We carry craft strains at our online dispensary, XpressGrass.
Overall, craft cannabis means more patience, care, and attention to detail was put into the growing and curing of the product. However, it can also include some of the following characteristics as well.
- Hand trimmed over machine trimmed to retain trichomes, and therefore the plant’s potency and medicinal value
- Organic methods over pesticides
- Exceptional packaging (like glass jar with UV protection)
