The Quickening of The Emerald Triangle

White flowers are starting to form on the full term cannabis plants on the pot farms in California’s Emerald Triangle

For cannasseurs and pot aficionados this is a magical time of year at pot farms in California’s Emerald Triangle.  The quickening has begun!  The big beautiful pot plants that went in the ground in spring have started bursting forth with the little white flowers that will soon join together to form those iconic giant conical colas that look so impressive on Instagram, and fill the Mendocino farms with the heady aromas that signify harvest time!

This is the time to go on a cannabis farm tour if you want to see how cannabis plants go into flower.  This whole next month between now and harvest in October is probably the best time of year to go on a weed tour to a Northern California farm as weed farmers prepare for the big annual harvest.


I always love this time of year, and I know our guests do, too.  We’ve seen a definite increase in bookings recently, and it looks like they will increase more and more as we get closer to harvest time, much like the pot plants that are looking so beautiful this year.  It’s probably the most popular time of year to go on cannabis vacations.

Harvest time is also a good time to learn about the drying and curing process, which people often don’t think much about, but how you dry and cure your plants is just as important as how you grow them.  Those of you old enough to remember that terrible brown Mex that we smoked in the 70s and 80s before Ca marijuana legalization might not know that when it was harvested, it was as green and beautiful as many of the buds that work their way to San Francisco dispensaries today.  The difference wasn’t in how it was grown, but in how it was dried and cured.  Basically, it was stored in metal sheds in the Mexican heat after it was harvested, and that’s what ruined it.  All the terpenes evaporated off, and the green matter cooked to a toasty brown.  So when you go on our 420 tours, you will learn the proper way to dry and cure your bud after harvest, as well as how the pros grow weed from beginning to end.
