When we launched our business back in 2011, we only dreamed that one day we might become one of the West Coast’s—and Iowa’s!—favorite families of medical and recreational dispensaries. We’re thrilled by the positive response our dispensaries have earned in communities spanning the entire West Coast and beyond, and we know that much of this success comes from partnering with exceptional vendors.
Because there are so many choices when it comes to buying ultra-fresh and locally produced cannabis, we want to take time out to shine a spotlight on some of those great partners who keep our dispensaries stocked with our exceptional cannabis products.
Today’s featured guest is Phat Panda, a company operating out of beautiful Spokane Valley, WA. Although they’re a family-owned business, Phat Panda makes a point of bringing the newest and most cutting-edge technology to the hard work of producing truly exceptional cannabis.
Phat Panda: Harnessing Technology to Grow Healthier Plants
One of the things that makes the cannabis industry so fascinating is the intersection between the ancient, hands-on approach required of plant husbandry and the modern, technology-assisted focus demanded by the 21st-century marketplace. Phat Panda seem to really get this, judging from the quality and consistency of their flower, extracts, and edibles.
The company’s proprietary “Panda Portal” is a self-contained seed-to-sale system. As the name suggests, it tracks every stage in a cannabis plant’s life cycle, from planting to pruning to humidity control, on to harvest, curing, and then through the many regulatory demands required to get cannabis safely and legally to market.
Designing and implementing one’s own software platform is a huge and daunting task. But it’s one of the reasons we admire Phat Panda: It’s a commitment to quality and accountability, and one of the reasons doing business with well-organized, forward-looking partners is such a pleasure.
Phat Panda: Some of Our Favorite Products
Phat Panda is a virtual candy factory, growing top-shelf flower, producing exceptional extracts, dabs and edibles, and infusing them all with a focus on sustainability and responsibility that sets them apart. Because product availability is highly variable, check our live menu before heading down to purchase a specific product.
In the cannabis “arms race” towards ever-higher potency, this strain is a welcome exception. Due to its relatively low THC and CBD content, Canna-Tsu makes for a mild and enjoyable experience. Users love the gentle wave of euphoria and motivation it brings.
This sativa-dominant hybrid offers a light, fruity aroma with a distinctive hit of tropical pineapple flavor. It’s great for when you need a dose of tranquility.
Hot Sugar 1:1 Caramel Panda Candies
These delightful candies deliver a consistent and concentrated dose of balanced THC and CBD cannabis, 10mg of each cannabinoid. Like all edibles, they can take their time coming on, but once they do they impart a wonderfully euphoric, relaxed but gentle high.
