Smoking weed is akin to how some people like to crack open a beer at the end of the work day. It is relaxing and something that doesn’t interfere with the daily life.
Everyone knows that good cannabis doesn’t often come cheap. But, just how much are you willing to spend for some high-quality bud? As an agricultural good, prices of cannabis fluctuate all of the time. When a strain first becomes popular, you can bet that it will cost you a pretty penny up front. Yet, as time goes on and more growers jump onto the bandwagon, the price of one strain drops and another one soars.
Here is the recent launch by A Golden State which they proclaim to be the most expensive cannabis flower on the market. The core business of A Golden State is premium cannabis, but they do have other popular not so expensive ones too.
Each 3.5g luxury cannabis flower costs $70 to $80 at various retailers across California. Strains include Shasta Bloom (Sativa), Sierra Lemon (Sativa), Night Sky (Indica), Cloud Top (Hybrid), Mountain Shadows (Indica), Snow Dream (Indica) and more.
There are three main types of Cannabis; Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid strains. These are actually botanical terms that relate to how the plant grow and less the composition on the actual cannabis. Marketing and a lack of clinical research have led consumers to believe these terms indicate an “effect” from the plant.
Sativa strains generally provide a more energetic high. While Indica are generally used for a more sedative high while still maintaining a positive outlook. Hybrid strains are used by both Cannabis Connoisseurs and medical marijuana users to find specific strain combination to more effectively manage medical issues and explore the vast world of flavours and aromas cannabis offers.
Nishant Reddy, Co-Founder & CEO of A Golden State, says “When we started A Golden State, we agreed we’d never cut corners, and that every aspect of the business would be held to those standards. We control the entire infrastructure, from the genetics to the cultivation to the nutrients, everything is hand-trimmed… all the way to the packaging, the distribution, even to the point of sale. We want to be held accountable for the entire process. All of our cardboard and labels are from recycled material and specially designated forests, and we’re looking now to explore recycled glass. We also use hydroelectric power for cultivation. We use snow melt water right off Mt Shasta at 44 degrees — we don’t treat it — and that’s one of the things that makes our flower special.
Most cannabis companies don’t have the infrastructure to produce their own products, so they’re sourcing flower from a variety of growers. Their labels are consistent, but they may be getting the flower from five different farms. We can tell you exactly where the flower came from, what seed, what room, and what the temperature was.”
