Getting to cannabis country from San Francisco couldn’t be easier. Our tour begins in Hopland, California, the gateway to the Emerald Triangle, just a short 1.5 hour drive, across the Golden Gate Bridge, on Northern California’s iconic Hwy 101. As you head North through Marin and Sonoma counties, the scenery just gets more and more pastoral. You know when you are nearly there as you pass the Experience Mendocino sign, the historic marker that welcomes you to the Waves, Wine and Woods (and Weed!). Once you cross the green trestle bridge, the freeway slows down through the center of the charming town of Hopland, and you’re there!

Emerald City : In the Heart of “The Emerald Triangle”


It has long been rumored that the world’s best cannabis is grown in Northern California’s Emerald Triangle, and the best of that cannabis is grown by seasoned artisan growers. Willits, known as the “Gateway to the Redwoods” and the “Heart of Mendocino County” has been the hub of the Emerald Triangle for over thirty years. Emerald City, the premier California Cannabis consortium, chose Willits as its central location to service those certified cannabis farmers and their boutique brands. Their prize harvest is ushered from testing through processing and packaging and finally to distribution to those discriminating cannaseurs among us who will only settle for the very best.

As California legally opens its doors for the first time into this long clandestine culture, the world is now being invited in to see how modern regulated cannabis is grown and processed into the high-end product that is available to adults at dispensaries throughout California. We visit the facilities and farms of Emerald City, first at the Redwood Valley farm, home to an impressive outdoor garden, a mixed light greenhouse, and their heirloom cultivation nursery. Then, be taken on an exclusive tour conducted by their master grower, of an enormous warehouse grow at Emerald City’s premier indoor facility. Come see firsthand how the highest quality marijuana is grown under sun or lights and how it comes to meet and surpass the world’s highest expectations.
