Farmer Appreciation: Sol Spirit Farm & Retreats

The weekend before summer solstice, Sespe Creek CEO Chelsea Sutula along with Marketing Manager Michelle Rosenblum and Budtender Lori Eckberg were invited to visit one of our Sun+Earth Certified farms and see their regenerative practice in action. Sol Spirit is located in Trinity County, just a few minutes from the beautiful Trinity River. They offer a unique glamping experience which allowed us to tour their established regenerative cannabis farm, eat food sustainably grown on the same farm, and simply pause for a weekend during our busy, getting-back-to-normal lives to breathe in fresh forest air and, naturally, smoke some fine cannabis. Earth Conscious Cannabis Sol Spirit cannabis is grown in small batches, lovingly crafted, sun grown, and sustainably cultivated. They take great care to ensure that their cultivation practices are harmonious […]

Exclusive Sespe Seedlings from Purple City Genetics

Guest Blog by Eric Rosen PCG  Background Purple City Genetics is an Oakland, California-based cannabis collective founded in 2008. We were born out of the medical movement, primarily with smaller indoor growers who always had their finger on the pulse with respect to consumer preferences, both current and also what the next vanguard cultivars were likely to be. This type of close connection to the community of growers, cultivators, farmers and producers has been one of our greatest allies from a cultivar selection and breeding process. As a result, many farms now look to us to ask ‘What should we grow next year? What’s going to be the next big thing?”. The genesis of our breeding program extended from the same desire we’ve always had: to provide new, unique and […]

Outdoor Grow Season Is Here

For those who cultivate indoors or in a greenhouse using supplemental lights, the grower is afforded a year round grow season. But for those who enjoy growing outdoors using the power of the sun, the location and the date you plant your crop and later harvest your bounty is determined by the photoperiod, the length of the day and the amount of light that gets to your plants.  For outdoor gardens it is best to start your clones or seedlings near the Spring Equinox, allowing them vegetative growth and to create a strong root system until the optimal outdoor plant day, which in Southern California is June 1st. Your plants will continue to increase in size through June and July, then will start to show signs of flowering in late […]

Uplifted Local: Kim of Ventura

Growing Tips From An Enthusiast

Hey There Future Grower! It’s an exciting time for growers, and every new grow comes with its own unique set of obstacles to navigate and lessons to learn! Whether this is your first time growing cannabis, or you’d consider yourself a master of the art, it’s always good to have a refresher on the basics.

Six Things You Need to Know About Ojai’s New Cannabis Tax

We wanted to help our Ojai patrons better understand what’s going on in light of the recent passage of Measure G in Ojai. Voters approved Measure G in Ojai by 69.2% of the vote. The text presented on the ballot was “Shall the measure approving an immediate 3% tax on cannabis businesses, which will potentially add $465,000-$1,550,000 annually to fund general city services, and approving authority for the City of Ojai to increase the tax on cannabis businesses up to 10% of gross receipts in the future, until the voters decide otherwise, be adopted?” Sadly, this ballot text was brief to the point of being somewhat deceiving, as it doesn’t present the full picture. Adding to the confusion, we are disappointed that the Ojai Valley News has opted to publish […]
