You’ve probably heard it said before: A great company is nothing without great people. And that couldn’t be truer than it is for the incredible crew who make Have a Heart such a great place to shop!
But there’s more to the story. Because we’re in the business of sourcing the freshest, purest, most flavorful cannabis we can possibly find, we’re constantly on the lookout for great partners, whether they be growers, producers or distributors. And we’re incredibly excited to be working with Artizen Cannabis in our Washington dispensaries, an artisanal growing operation bringing a uniquely Zen perspective to the work of growing world-class cannabis.
Artizen Cannabis: Finding the Zen Within
Occupying a custom-built facility in green-dappled Lacey, Washington, Artizen leans hard on cutting-edge greenhouse technology to grow some truly special offerings. With a company ethic oriented more around the plants’ timeframe than the humans’, Artizen is an oasis of calm and deliberateness that can otherwise be woefully lacking in everyday life.
That’s not to suggest it’s low-tech. Aritzen’s cavernous grow facility utilizes state-of-the-art temperature, water filtration and humidity control for the healthiest possible plants. The 30-foot high ceilings allow plenty of room for the CO2-enriched air to circulate, and best-in-class grow lighting provides optimum levels of photosynthetic energy. It’s a lot to take in, but the consistently exceptional cannabis—and the multiple awards—speak for themselves.

This much-hyped cross between Blueberry and Haze promises an immediate euphoric relaxation. With a flavor and aroma reminiscent of violets, macadamia nuts, green tea and of course fresh blueberries, Artizen’s Blue Dream was the winner of the Leafly’s Critic’s Pick in 2015 for “Best Blue Dream in the State.” It tends to impart an endlessly smooth sheen to whatever you’re engaged in.
With a roughly 1.6:1 CBD to THC ratio, this sweet-tasting, earthy and woody flower imparts a gentle and mild psychoactivity. In return, the CBD/THC synergy is in full effect, making Critical Mass a go-to for many canna-sseurs.
Dating back to the 1980s, this strain was immediately recognized for its high quality (and its high potency), and we think it’s only gotten better and stronger since! The aroma and flavor are a heady mix of earthy funk, appealing sourness and a touch of sweet. Look for a vibrational, energetic, and clear-headed lift, but beware: it may also cause drowsiness, so it’s best experienced near the safety of the couch.
Ready to get lifted? Sometimes described as the ultimate “happy weed,” this richly berry-scented sativa delivers a shockingly giggly and fun high. The winner of a 2016 Dope Cup award, its appealingly rose-scented aroma will have you seeing through rose-tinted glasses in no time!
