We love shining a spotlight on the incredible growers, producers, and partners who keep our shelves stocked with top-flight cannabis. After all, without them, our dispensaries would just be, well, shelves! It’s thanks to them we’re able to offer everything from classic and unusual strains of fresh flower to topicals, tinctures, and yummy edibles to the latest cutting-edge extracts and concentrates.
Today we’re going to feature on that last part of the equation. Many in the cannabis world hold Sacramento’s Friendly Farms in high regard (no pun intended); no wonder they’ve collaborated numerous times with cannabis tastemaker Mario “Mr. Sherbinski” Guzman, the creator of the wildly popular Gelato and other strains. We’ll tell you a bit about Friendly Farms and share some of our favorite products currently hitting the shelves.
Friendly Farms: Concentrating All the Cannabis Plant’s Goodness
Working diligently out of Sacramento’s “green zone,” an incubator for world-class and designer cannabis, Friendly Farms has collaborated on extracts with some of the hottest names in cannabis, including Connected Cannabis and Alien Labs. Now, they’re leading the next wave in cannabis: Live-resin extracts and dab sauces.
These impossibly flavorful oils are handcrafted to extract all the cannabis plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes in the most minimally processed way possible. The effect is to heighten the flavors and aromas of each strain, giving you a “super realistic” experience of cannabis. Take it from us: Sampling extracts this good is a unique experience, and it’s an exciting indicator of where the world of concentrates is heading.
Taking “Mr. Sherbinski” to the Masses
Mario Guzman was already a superstar in the cannabis world, but his current collaboration with Friendly Farms is poised to bring his unique and wildly popular strains to a vastly larger audience. In addition to being namechecked by multiple hip hop artists, Guzman’s Gelato was named “2018 Strain of the Year” by Leafly. Speaking of which, maybe this is a good time to introduce you to some of our favorite Friendly Farms extracts!
Have a Heart’s Favorite Friendly Farms Strains
We love handcrafted concentrates, and we think Friendly Farms make some of the best! If you’re interested in any of our favorites, be sure to check our live menu before heading down to the dispensary. As you might guess, dabs and vapes this good don’t stay on the shelf for long!
Described as a fresh and fruity blast for the senses, this indica-dominant hybrid delivers an incredibly deep citrus aroma and the ripe, juicy flavor of fresh berries. Expect deep relaxation coupled with a long-lasting sense of euphoria. The mood boost is one notable (and happy) side effect.
A mouthwatering cross of Cherry Pie and Tangie, the terpene profile is a perfect blend of Cherry Pie’s musky, sweet undertones and Tangie’s loud tropical characteristics. You’ll feel hit hard between the eyes, deepening into the body. If you’re feeling stressed, you’ll probably love this strain’s deep physical relaxation and lulling mental stoniness.
Another full-on relaxer, this flavorful hybrid delivers powerful body effects joined by a distinctive jolt of cerebral energy. Any trace of stress or a bad mood will dissolve into a carefree mindset and powerful euphoria.
