TANGIEMAL (Tangie × Animal Cookies) Creator of TangieMal, Humboldt’s Dankest. Hempcon Best Sativa 2017. 70/30 Sativa dominant. The Tangie strain is best known for its characteristic terpene profile. This strain has a citrus taste unlike any other that you can imagine. If you haven’t tried it for yourself, it’s best described as a cheesy citrus taste with a hint of cookie.

SFV OG (Afghani crossed child) “San Fernando Valley OG” is a potent indica dominant (70% indica/30% sativa) phenotype of the OG Kush strain created by breeders at the infamous Cali Connection farms in the San Fernando Valley. This dank bud boasts an average THC level ranging from 19-27% and primarily indica effects. Connection is a sativa-dominant hybrid that is great for patients who need strong pain relief but don’t want to be stuck on the couch.

Zkittles An indica-dominant mix of Grape Ape and Grapefruit that is crossed with another undisclosed strain to produce this candy-flavored cannabis bred by 3rd Gen Family and Terp Hogz. This award-winning combination took 1st Place at the 2016 Emerald Cup and 1st Place Indica at the 2015 Cannabis Cups in San Francisco and in Michigan. The chunky colas explode in a spectrum of light green hues and emit a sweet, tropical blend of fruit flavors. The effects of Zkittlez are surprisingly uplifting for an indica, leaving consumers focused, alert, and happy while relaxing the body to help unwind any time of day.

Gelato (also referred to as “Larry Bird”) Another tantalizing hybrid cannabis strain from Cookie Fam Genetics, following in the footsteps of its parents Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC. It gets its name from the fruity, dessert-like aroma, a common genetic thread among the Cookie family. Her buds tend to bloom in dark purple hues illuminated by fiery orange hairs and a shining white coat of crystal resin. Novice consumers may want to approach this THC powerhouse with caution, but those armed with a high tolerance will delight in Gelato’s heavy-handed euphoria. Physical relaxation comes on strong, but many find themselves still mentally agile enough to stay productive and creative when enjoying Gelato during the day.

Neighborhood Bonds The resilience of Humboldt’s farm communities By Nora Mounce

BEYOND THE COUNTY LINE, the story of Humboldt is often sung as a one-note tune. The opening chords recall the collapse of the timber industry, peppered with narratives about displaced loggers and utopian hippies growing marijuana in the hills. Lyrics about off-thegrid millionaires and helicopters buzzing overhead bookend a chorus that waxes poetic about the timeless beauty of the redwoods. Promising to protect this wild and exotic place, the closing notes remind us a new era has arrived. Like an overplayed classic, however, the song has gotten a bit trite. Humboldt County encompasses 4,052 square miles and contains a multitude of diverse microclimates and disparate small towns. Across this rugged terrain, cannabis is grown along backcountry roads and in your neighbor’s spare bedroom. A byproduct and pillar of the region’s cultural identity, cannabis is inseparable from our story. To understand the anecdotal charm of life in America’s cannabis capital, get to know the bedrock communities that have made Humboldt cannabis a legacy.

The Mattole Valley West of shadowy redwood groves of southern Humboldt, the Mattole Valley opens up toward the Pacific, a rolling expanse of sunshine, green grass and blue skies. On the coast lies the Bohemian outpost of Petrolia. Honeydew and Ettersburg, historically sheep ranching towns, sit inland. The most western landmass on the Pacific Coast, the valley sits within the Lost Coast, famous among backpackers and surfers for its rugged and dangerous beauty. Given the unprotected geography, the Lost Coast regularly takes a beating and the country roads are predictably rough. “Half the people who end up in Honeydew never meant to go there,” says Bob Shinn, whose family first settled in the Mattole Valley in the 1850s. Today, Shinn runs the Honeydew Store, where the community has come together since 1927. Located a two-hour drive from Costco or Safeway in Eureka, Shinn claims the Honeydew HUMBOLDT CANNABIS

Store sells “everything you need to survive for the next 60 years.” While filling bellies and propane tanks is what keeps the store open, Shinn explains that it’s a gathering place and community center. “We have funerals there. We have memorials there,” adds Shinn. “For me, it’s home.” When she was a child, Honeydew resident Jade Woodrose recalls, the community revolved around the Honeydew Store. “Right before it closed in the afternoon, people would come down the hill to visit,” Woodrose says. “Before anyone had a cellphone, you could get a message there. You got your mail there,” she adds. Woodrose also wistfully remembers “the code of honor and community spirit” that oversaw old ways of doing business before the green rush impacted the Mattole. Today valley farmers are collaborating to influence legislation that will directly impact the cannabis industry. Humboldt became the first county in California to adopt a land use ordinance to regulate commercial cannabis in 2016. In Honeydew, policy meetings were held at the Mattole Grange, where Woodrose graduated from both 8th grade and high school. As the Mattole’s industry shifts into the era of legalization, environmentally responsible cannabis farmers are finally being recognized for their earth-first values in the form of cultivation permits. Though historically dependent on the resource-extractive industries of mining and timber, followed by cannabis farming today, the Mattole Valley has always maintained a reputation for safeguarding its hidden paradise. In Petrolia, the Mattole Valley Community Center sits in a renovated schoolhouse on the only corner in town.

In the era of legalization, many hope that the tightly regulated legal cannabis industry will uphold the Garberville region’s legacy of environmental conservation and premium,  An hour south from Humboldt County’s courthouse, Garberville sits in the center of rural southern Humboldt, known colloquially sun-grown cannabis. “The Mattole Valley is a land as SoHum.

venue located in the rural town of Redway near Garberville. “There are people here to stay no matter what,” says Epling. The prototypical child of back-to-the-land parents, Epling grew up without electricity or technology. When he was 13 years old, he tried to hook up a homemade computer to a solar panel. Today, Epling owns Emerald Tech, a computer store in Garberville. “My first memory of the Mateel was my mom setting me in a pile of jackets so they could go dance.” Often referred to as "the hall that marijuana built," the Mateel’s effort to preserve culture, music and community in SoHum has always been supported by generous donations from cannabis farmers. Despite recent financial hardships, the Mateel persists as a hub of international culture in rural Humboldt. Drawn by the allure of the region, Dan Pomerantz moved to SoHum nine years ago to pursue his dream of “growing the best cannabis in the world.” His farm, Rebel Grown, sits at the geographical center of the Emerald Triangle, 45 minutes east of Garberville. Pomerantz believes the balance of inland heat and coastal moisture are an ideal microclimate for growing cannabis. “This area is so remote that people could go a little crazier and bigger,” explains Pomerantz. He attributes the scale of SoHum cannabis farms to the region’s “badass reputation.” Though outsiders often get the hint that meandering beyond downtown Garberville without invitation isn’t wise, every local tells a story of a neighbor coming to their rescue. With emergency services often hours away, families have always depended on volunteer fire departments and neighbors to respond to emergencies. “Many roads are not officially named, driveways are not marked, gates are locked and many locations are only known by their historical names,” explains Mikal Jakubal, formerly of the Briceland Volunteer Fire Department. The community radio station KMUD has always played a critical role in covering fire, weather and law enforcement news; many farms still lack internet and cell phone service. Living in such rural isolation has made farm stores, like Dazey’s Supply in Redway, a cornerstone of the community. “It’s where you see all your neighbors and catch-up,” says Honeydew resident Jade Woodrose.

HUMBOLDTCANNABISMAGAZINE.COM | SPRING 2018

Until legalization, seclusion and risk were the tenets of a cannabis farmer’s life, intensifying the need to look out for each other. Beyond SoHum’s rough-and-tumble reputation, the real legacy of the region is the resilience of its community.

Willow Creek Heading due east from the hippie vibes and coastal temps of Arcata, you quickly climb the steep mountain passes of State Route 299. In the winter months, cresting Berry Summit at nearly 3,000 feet, a dusting of snow crystallizes the scenic vista before dropping into Willow Creek. Perched above the sparkling Trinity River, most of Willow Creek’s commercial businesses straddle the highway. A few storefronts sit perpetually empty, magnifying the low thrum of the town. Like anywhere in Humboldt, farming cannabis is a way of life for many in “the Creek,” but on a different scale and with different challenges than Southern Humboldt. Farming in the mountains means steeply graded properties, keeping snowpack off greenhouses in the winter and scorching triple-digit temperatures each summer. Without the multi-generational legacy of SoHum, many farmers have found the Creek a welcoming community for new farmers. “The cannabis industry is helping bring a lot of life to Willow Creek,” says Sara Roberts, who moved inland from the coast five years ago. As a 37-year-old female farmer, Roberts chose Willow Creek for the safety and accessibility of being close to town. “I wanted electricity. I wanted to be close to a main highway,” explains Roberts. At her property, Enchanted Springs Farm, Roberts is gearing up for the era of legalization and excited for the positive impacts it will have

on Willow Creek. “It’s becoming more and more populated because of all the legit stuff happening,” she explains. For Roberts, ending a day of hard work in the sunshine with a swim in the river is what makes life in Willow Creek so sweet. Flowing northwest into the Klamath River, the Trinity is beloved by kayakers, rafters, fishermen and locals across Humboldt. Controlled by the Trinity Dam, the water flows rapidly all year, but by mid-summer, it slows enough for families to swim at Camp Kimtu and Big Rock. Farther upriver, rafting companies operate recreational river trips on the Trinity, inviting tourists and families to enjoy the wild beauty of the Emerald Triangle. Just down the road, Hannah Whyte and her husband Riley are the owners of Emerald Queen Farms. Also young farmers, the couple was first drawn to Willow Creek after falling in the love with the beauty and potential to grow food year round. Today, Emerald Queen Farms is earning widespread recognition as a role model for small, family-owned farms that will compete to survive in the legal industry. In addition to sharing their knowledge of regenerative farming practices with their neighbors, Whyte

and her husband are excited about helping foster healthy community in Willow Creek. “There’s also so much opportunity for recreation here,” says Whyte. “We want to promote an active lifestyle culture. We love skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding, and want to develop our brand for people who spend their time in nature.” Whyte is also excited about changes coming to her “sweet town.” In 2017, the North Coast Grower’s Association started operating the Willow Creek Farmer’s Market every Thursday night with fresh local produce and live music. Other community hubs include two farm supply stores that are both safe havens for farmers to socialize and network. As Willow Creek continues to change and grow, local farmers hope to integrate the area’s outdoor recreational opportunities with cannabis tourism, bringing a much needed stable economy to the region. “There are so many learning opportunities in the regulatory marketplace and we’re figuring out how to make it work best for everyone,” adds Whyte. “We’ve got to do this together.”

area’s most important job as owners of the Dinsmore Store. Established in the early 1900s, the store still is the one-stop shop for the outlying ranch towns of Carlotta, Bridgeville, Dinsmore and Mad River. “The community depends on it greatly,” says Parker. Located 45 miles east of Eureka, the Dinsmore Store is the only place to get food, gas, propane, lumber and garden supplies until you reach Red Bluff — another 90 miles away. The long distances between outposts are a testament to the challenge of living in such a far-flung community. According to Parker, people like it this way. “It doesn’t matter how you cut the pie, they’re a bunch of freaking rebels,” says Parker, referring to both farmers and ranchers. Growing up in Korbel and Honeydew, Parker has seen Humboldt’s communities change dramatically over the years. Though many newcomers now populate the small ranching towns along State Route 36 thanks to cannabis, Parker still sees an intense loyalty among the community. Since buying the Dinsmore Store, she’s been amazed at how quick her customers are to help out if anyone’s stirring up trouble. While fearing that new government regulations will cripple the economy, Parker still hopes that the legal cannabis industry will bring positive change to her community. In Carlotta, 35 miles west of Dinsmore, Blessed Coast Farms has become a statewide leader for sustainable agriculture and entrepreneurship in the legal cannabis industry. Owned and operated by Siobhan Danger Darwish and her sister Sloan, Blessed Coast was proudly bestowed the honor of being Humboldt County’s first permitted farm in 2016. The sisters also share farming practices and marketing tips on their popular YouTube channel, the Grow Sisters. “We try to make our approach simple, yet strong. Our goal is to produce a wonderful product, like Mother Nature intended,” explains Darwish. “This is new territory for us all

but if we apply strategy that aligns with the state regulatory agencies, we should be able to navigate this new industry while reducing our overall carbon footprint,” she adds. From the tiny hub of Carlotta, Blessed Coast Farms is setting a high standard for small-scale, sustainable agriculture. By expertly leveraging social media and sharing stories about environmentally conscious cannabis farmers, Blessed Coast Farms is promoting a new image for Humboldt County. “If Humboldt can keep from being saturated by big business, we should retain the green economy we hold so dear to our hearts,” says Darwish.

For America’s “cannaisseurs”, nothing compares to

the legacy of Humboldt cannabis. Across Humboldt County, farmers, consultants, environmentalists, officials and entrepreneurs are working to ensure that our reputation goes untarnished. But the diversity of the region invites exploration to truly understand our flora and our home. In 2018, Humboldt County is open for adventures.

Scott Holmquist’s chronic freedom Series Cannabis growing for the future alien peasant By Gabrielle Gopinath

Artist Scott Holmquist has made five handbound, limited-edition books about the unique communities that established cannabis cultivation in Humboldt County. Be forewarned: these books are not going to fit neatly on your shelf, sandwiched in there between the Cannabis Grow Bible and What’s Wrong With My Marijuana Plant? These books need their space. They demand your attention and sometimes your full-body participation. When I viewed these volumes at Bug Press in Arcata recently, by special arrangement, it felt a bit as though a social revolutionary with the Situationist International had traveled forward in time, juking improbably from Paris 1968 to Garberville 2010, producing a radical archive in codex form along the way. Collaged together from reproductions, photos and text, framed by original writing, these books document community loyalties, political viewpoints, musical selections, conversation styles, slang and assorted intangibles of the cannabis-growing scene that emerged in Southern Humboldt in the 1970s and 1980s. They represent, in their maker’s words, “a unified attempt to survey, collect and interrogate traces of the histories comprising the back-to-the-land and marijuana production worlds as they evolved in Southern Humboldt County, Calif., from the late 1960s through 2010.” Holmquist conceived the books to exhibit in private spaces among the people who are its subjects, which he has done in more than a dozen presentations since 2011, nearly all at remote homesteads. The main volume’s opening essay, “Against Dialogue: for speaking only to ourselves” explains: “This book is for you if you are of, or related to, the communities of SoHum hippies or hippie-sympathetic pot growers — past, present and future.” In fact, I am the first outside writer allowed to view them, though not in their intended site-specific installation. dirt has big, crackling, brightly colored pages made from soil amendment bags bound in covers made from tent-canvas and

rubber bed-liner scavanged from a defunct indoor grow on Reed Mountain. It has pages nearly 3 feet tall; unless you have exceptionally long arms, you read it standing up. 3 books features luxuriously poofy cream-colored leather binding, embossed with an artfully rendered cannabis bud based on a woodcut by illustrator and Southern Humboldt painter Frank Cieciorka, best known for the clenched-fist salute graphic that became the emblem of radical 1960s movements. Much of the printing was done by Bug Press. Minnesota-born Holmquist, who has lived in Berlin, Germany, since 2011 but keeps an office in Arcata, made the originals at his studios in Eureka and Berlin. The books bring together a host of rare primary sources in reproduction: transcriptions of interviews and chat room exchanges, musical samples, 40 years of programs from community center events, bills for hip-hop shows, and reproductions of mimeographed magazines produced by SoHum back-to-the-landers from the 1970s through the 2000s. Materials you wouldn’t necessarily think of as being booklike rasp and rattle as you turn these pages. This is serious ephemera: promo stickers and audio cassette art inserts, flattened bullet slugs resting inside the book’s pages in custom-cut vaults, tarpaulins and bags for local soil mixes like Happy Frog and Ocean Forest, turkey bags still littered with bud residue, all painstakingly bound to the volume’s spine with polyethylene drip line. You can almost smell the pungent perfume of a trim scene wafting off these pages. Materials lists give some idea of the intricacy of these volumes’ construction. dirt is “inkjet-printed in color on adhesive paper bonded to soil and soil supplement bags, cut open into bi-folds and side-stitched, hand bound to rusted ½-inch rebar spine and covered with tent canvas and pond liner scavenged from marijuana-growing HUMBOLDT CANNABIS

operations.” Meanwhile, chronic freedom is “partially encased in calfskin attached to oak panels with titles of steel letters. In three of the book sections, fired bullet slugs have been set into niches carved into pages.” Most volumes adopt the form bookbinders call a codex — a sequence of pleated pages between covers. All push against the format’s expected norms. While the books contain printed components, they have more in common with handmade manuscripts than they do with the average trade paperback. Small wonder that little figures from medieval illuminations appear throughout the pages of chronic freedom, popping up to tend gardens, roll barrels, sing, dance and otherwise carry on among the marginalia. The more than 1,000-page omnibus that is chronic freedom includes three sections of pages that have nothing to do with the traditional purpose of supporting text. They function more as a medium for sculpture, accommodating precision cuts that form small secret compartments within the book, slicing through the massed pages the way a worm tunnels through a tree’s concentric rings. The shapes of these “bullet vaults” repeat the irregular curves of the handcrafted slugs they contain. The chronic of the title refers both to the complexities of growing-life freedoms and South Central Los Angeles slang for Humboldt-grade cannabis that also provided Dr. Dre’s 1992 album title, The Chronic, among the most critically and commercially successful CDs of the 1990s. light, the most sculptural object of the bunch, takes the form of a scroll suspended from two busted EYE 1000-watt high-pressure sodium-mercury bulbs, with their amalgam arc-tubes intact, once used to light an indoor grow. Big Drug Factory – Unfound blurs the lines between book, archive, and archive tool: its four-flap canvas and leather sheath and multi-flap archival folders exist to protect and encompass its contents. A 13-page tabloid-form book is in one of two archival folders set next to each other. The contents of the second turn out to be (surprise!) another text — specifically, an original copy of Rolling Stone from May 24, 1973, the one with a cover story by Joe Eszterhas, “Death in the Wilderness: The Justice Department’s Killer Nark Strike Force,” which was the first account of drug-war life and death in Southern Humboldt to hit the national press. The book takes its title from a Eureka Times-Standard front-page headline in 1972 that began, “Man Killed in Raid, Big Drug Factory – Unfound.” 3 books features three smaller volumes reassembled into one book’s binding, vertically superimposed end-to-end — its a literal book of books, like a stacked series of nesting dolls. The three paperbacks in question Holmquist describes as the three earliest book-length accounts of U.S. cannabis production — T.C. Boyle’s Budding Prospects, Steve Chapple’s Outlaws in Babylon and Ray Raphael’s Cash Crop: An American Dream, all published 1984-85, retitled by Holmquist in his book as Pastoral, Gonzo Report, and Self-Portrait. This gonzo presentation has its advantages. The opportunities for comparison it generates can be instructive — when sources are matched up this way, the art of storytelling becomes apparent. The eye tends to hover, comparing and contrasting, skipping from one text to the next as it moves across the page. At times this makes the reading experience feel like a three-way version of the cut-up technique credited to English artist Brion

Holmquist presenting dirt at a private viewing in Petrolia. Photograph by Tony Smull.

One of the artist’s remaining copies of the chronic freedom series has been donated to Humboldt State University’s new Special Collection room. Holmquist will be presenting his work in person in September, 2018. Date TBA.

Gysin in the 1960s, in which a text is literally quartered and then reassembled to reveal its potential for meanings other than those which the authors originally intended. Gravid bodies, hidden cavities, nesting units and mise-en-abyme effects — books opening to reveal other books, paintings of paintings — are everywhere. When I caught up with Holmquist, speaking from Berlin, the artist was eager to discuss the archival approach he adopted to support original texts in the books. “I sought to gather traces of the histories and their different tellings, accumulating all documents on the subject I could find,” he told me. And he accumulated these impartially. “Whether it was small notebook drawings people made or watershed diagrams, or publications like Gulch Mulch, I included them. Every page of local items, some I micro-printed, set against, for instance, a 1983 article about growing in Southern Humboldt from People magazine … interested in bringing out the inevitable ironies and contradictions among the completely different points of view within these things set next to one another.” He has deliberately made no attempt to explain the materials he amassed. “I wanted to avoid distorting the things themselves with explanations that often depend on mainstream concepts. With the lived knowledge of growing, meanings fall together and offer pleasurable surprises,” he said. I asked if he sought to tell the real story and he said, “I wasn’t interested in 'telling the story,' or writing the history, or seeking to be impartial. In fact, this work is partisan, for the hippie and activist grower communities ... And I did not pretend that I could include all voices.” Indeed, women’s voices and experiences in the Southern Humboldt cannabis scene seem to be underrepresented, though there are several lengthy interviews of founding and first generation back-to-the-lander women, whom Holmquist had interviewed by Jennifer Block, a journalist and author friend. I also did not find anything on the presence of Hmong, Lao and Thai workers in Southern Humboldt, perennially underreported, though given the number of pages and documents, often reproduced in microscopic printing, I cannnot be sure they went unmentioned. The volumes avoid the region’s most stereotypical endemic narratives, correcting instead for the lurid and exploitative portraits of Southern Humboldt that some visiting journalists have drawn. They juxtapose accounts from a variety of voices: government surveys of the hills’ topography, AOL chat room wars, tabloid exposés, police reports, 1970s self-produced folk cassettes and 2000s hip-hop CDs. The groovy hippiespeak of the county’s little magazines butts up against the Babbitty tone of small-town newspaper accounts, then against the breezy and propulsive lingo of New Journalism. Readers explore by picking their way through the texts, moving forward or backward according to the moment’s dictates. Holmquist has imagined his books functioning as time capsules or “core samples” of the “insurgent communities” that laid the foundations of the Humboldt cannabis economy and its attendant cultures, building schools and institutions like a credit union and health center, all over a certain span of time, now beginning to recede into the past — a time when the cannabis-growing communites were concentrated in Southern Humboldt and Northern Mendocino counties, when they were more closeknit, self-sufficient and politically active, bound by their shared illegal livelihood. “If these books were somehow, in some future, the only evidence of what happened in those hills,” he mused, “if we could project the material into the distant future, when it’s discovered by the peasants of some different world, what would we learn?” His beautifully constructed volumes are built to last. Thanks to their material integrity, who knows? The future’s alien peasants might just get their chance.

Huckleberry Hill Farms A family tradition By Elijah Kineg Photographs by Alexandra Hootnick

BEFORE THE SUN has crested the tree line, John Casali is already walking the grounds of Huckleberry Hill Farm. Days begin around 5 AM for Casali, who celebrates these early moments with a warm cup of coffee and a refresher of current events. Soon thereafter, his real work day begins. →

With his dog Koa at

his side, Casali walks downhill toward the garage where a rack of clones will be watered and plants fed from a large, opaque tank of organic tea. These immaculate plants are a deep emerald color, the result of selective genotyping by his family for more than 45 years. The strains here are refined and economical in number, and all plants tagged with small trackand-trace bracelets. His mother is the original cultivator of the Fruitloopz strain, which has now been crossed with Skittles for Casali’s aptly named Huckleberries. (To experience Fruitloopz first hand, its terpenes have been blended with ink, providing an olfactory venture on page 2 of this edition.) Huckleberries is one of just a handful of Northern California craft cannabis strains to win Willie Nelson’s seal of approval and be included in his line of Willie’s Reserve. In addition to Fruitloopz and Huckleberries, a splice of his mother’s plants crossed with the popular Cookie strain will produce Mountain Mist, another player in the farm’s exclusive line of cannabis this season.

“I think it’s important for farms to produce their own strains,” says Casali. Buyers are looking “for quality, but they’re also buying for the story. And we all have our own stories and perspective." The activated soil that powers these plants is rich, much like the narrative that explains the farm’s history. As a second-generation grower, Casali has a combination of his mother’s interest and aptitude for herbalism, and the generous, community spirit of his late father. Set on the winding backroads of Garberville, the farm is a single slope of deliberate arrangement, peppered with pest-repelling perennials and an almost antiseptic level of visual clarity. Where some farms have steadily accruing piles of nutrient bottles and mycorrhizae bags, Casali’s farm is designed to visually greet visitors and welcome them. Like the heads of sunflowers turned toward the sun, the farm’s front-facing labels on various plots snake uphill toward four massive gravity-feeding tanks. These tanks are filled entirely from a rainwater catchment system just down the hill. Two artificial ponds fill during storms and solar-powered pumps then move the water uphill for storage. The pumps currently use six panels, but more will be added later. Casali, a fishing enthusiast, is working with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to stock the ponds with live trout. While many vineyards of Napa Valley have been

granted an official Fish-Friendly certification, Casali is the first among cannabis famers to embark on the five-year application process. He says that the state has a “legitimate beef” with many cannabis famers and he wants to help to eventually overcome that stigma. “Part of my newfound love is giving tours to people and educating them about the environment. Flow Kana really likes bringing them here because I usually have lunch prepared.” So lunch, a private tour, a bit of fishing, shopping for geodes to take home. “All in one experience.” Flow Kana is ultimately the fuel for Huckleberry Hill’s future growth. The San Francisco Bay Area marketing and distribution company works with small, sustainable farms, distributing products and handling customer communication. While Flow Kana staff have visited Casali’s farm about 25 times, only three of those visits were required before Huckleberry Hill was approved and welcomed into Flow Kana’s family of farms. In turn, Casali pledges to always put environment before profit. Casali’s home is nestled in the heart of the family property. As you enter the front door, a Humboldt High-Five wall banner is prominently displayed. These are the five farms ­— Huckleberry Hill, Lady Sativa Farm, Alpenglow Farms, Moonmade Farms and Villa Paradisio — selected by Flow Kana not only for high standards of environmentally friendly growing, but for reinvesting back to the community. Casali has donated to Save the Van Arken project in Southern Humboldt as well as to other causes.

In fact, next to Casali’s greenhouses is a row of pots that will be donated solely to veterans. Financially, Casali says he “probably broke even last year, 300 pounds later, after my income taxes. I like to keep things interesting.” And adjacent to the pots for service members is a single planter with a Flow Kana logo secured to the side. Every July 4th, the 150 employees of Flow Kana enter a raffle to claim all three pounds of cannabis that will be harvested as a thank you for promoting the best of Humboldt. Huckleberry Hill and Flow Kana is truly a symbiotic relationship. A sneak-peak of the packaging for Willie Nelson’s “Reserve” shows that Huckleberry Hill is in bold type, while “Powered by Flow Kana” is printed below, keeping the family farmer at the forefront. Navigating the farm on this early March day can feel a bit like walking through a fairground during the off-season. All the different rides are set into place with none of the lights and bustle. With 2,500 square feet of greenhouse space and 50 pots, the soil is amended and ready to accommodate life. Above ground, however, Casali is surveying the work yet to be done and prioritizing. He is, for the time being, a one-man band. “A lot of the choices I make are based on the amount of time I have. Doing it all by myself is definitely a little bit challenging,” he says but it has its rewards. “I touch every plant, I touch every leaf, every part of the soil.” Casali’s steadfast work ethic of the present was certainly forged in the past. In 1992 Casali HUMBOLDT CANNABIS

was 22 years old — enjoying life, cruising the roads of SoHum in pick-ups and occasionally out on the ocean with his board. At the same time Green Sweep, Comet and MET and other law enforcement efforts were at work doing their best to halt illegal grows. Those were the days of mandatory minimum terms of 10 years in prison for anyone caught with 1,000 plants. “It became a way of life, dealing with enforcement,” says Casali, of always looking over your shoulder for the law. “It still puts an extra beat in my heart and always will. It’s ingrained in me.” One day Casali and a friend were working on some small plants with a hope to harvest a few ounces from each. The thick canopy overhead provided diminished light penetration, but at least some cover. He says a neighbor turned him in and when the dust settled, officers tallied up a whopping 1,024 plants. They counted everything, even plants 2 inches in height, often discarded as duds, and some lying in the dirt nearby. Casali was able to reduce his sentence of 10 years to eight by completing a drug program, but he spent the remainder of his 20s in prison. “We don’t really know how or why things happen in life,” he said. “They just happen and we need to move forward. “I’ve dedicated that my ‘moving forward’ will never be about Huckleberry Hill alone. It’s going to be about my friends and family who were always here for me. We can’t allow the permitting process to break us up because community is what is so special about this place.” When our tour was concluding, Casali stood by his kitchen table while the thump of helicopter paddles overhead grew louder. Stopping mid-sentence, he pointed skyward, letting the sound play for a moment, addressing the neurosis of the past. Then he continued to speak, coolly, unaffected, to talk about the future of his farm. Our tour took place on a characteristically gray morning in March, a thick cloud cover overhead. He was speaking of joy about his donation efforts and upcoming crops, but when he mentioned his father, his cadence began to break. He had died just a few weeks prior. “The people who are giving without expecting anything in return — those are the people I want to be associated with. When I go, when we all go, we end up in the same place.” “It’s not the money. It’s how we’re going to be remembered. And I want to be remembered as someone good who cared about other people.”

“It still puts an extra beat in my heart and always will. It’s ingrained in me.”

on-site consumption, the organizations are preparing the never-before-seen face of the cannabis industry for show time. Still, the skeptics are numerous. Many cite Humboldt’s remote location and infamous rough edges as the reason that cannabis tourists will choose shinier, more accessible destinations like Sonoma and San Diego. Locals have scoffed at the idea of tourists driving for hours to trudge through muddy farms just to smoke some weed. But outside the cannabis world, recent headlines suggest otherwise: The Lonely Planet announced the Redwood Coast (indicating Humboldt and its northern neighbor, Del Norte County) as America’s No. 1 destination to visit in 2018. The travel giant gave a small nod to legalization, writing, “The draw of the Redwood Coast far surpasses change in this [cannabis] industry, inviting travelers to achieve the ultimate California mellow with its quirky shops, brewpubs, coffee roasters and oyster happy hours.” Lasseter says that the Lonely Planet recognition has kicked her organization into high gear. But typecasting Humboldt as a funky outdoor paradise in spite of the weed thing, is a dangerous approach. “Denouncing cannabis would be ignoring part of our heritage and our legacy,” says Lasseter. Part of that heritage is undoubtedly the people: Jen Aspuria and Daniel Kulchin are the co-owners of Emerald Organics Cooperative, a permitted farm located in Briceland. The couple met while watching their teenage children snowboard competitively in Lake Tahoe. Aspuria views many parallels between Humboldt and Tahoe. “In South Lake, we have a saying that it’s ‘poverty with a view.’ People here (in Humboldt) are not wealthy. If our communities don’t latch on to tourism, I don’t know what we’ll do,” explains Aspuria. Acknowledging that Humboldt’s beaches and forests are pristine due to human scarcity and that, “some aspects of tourism do suck,” Aspuria is enthusiastic about the potential to harness the good stuff. “We have to see how cannabis fits the picture. Humboldt has always had such a reputation. Let people come here, have a positive experience and go home. They always go home,” says Aspuria. As a teenager, one of Aspuria’s most positive experiences was at summer camp in the Sierra Nevadas. Wanting to recreate that “special camp energy,” Aspuria and Kulchin have launched Emerald Camp Resort, a luxury glamping experience on their cannabis farm. While still awaiting final signatures on their permitted campground, the couple has already built three of five Geodesic domes on their 10-acre property. At the main farmhouse, guests can enjoy the pool, hot tub, basketball court and trampoline and gather together for organic, catered meals. As a private property, cannabis consumption is allowed, encouraged by the 10,000 square feet of sun-grown cannabis. Scattered across the property, each dome sits on a private platform and is outfitted with beautiful cork flooring, electricity, air conditioning and organic linens. “My vision was a beautiful lavish bed that’s nothing like what you get in a hotel,” says Aspuria. In the remote areas of the county, where nearly all permitted cannabis farms are concentrated, a lack of quality lodging is a problem for any tourist. While hotels like the Inn of the Lost Coast and the Benbow Inn welcome tourists, it’s unforeseen how consumption and cannabis-infused events will function in public environs. “My friends in New York City are amazed by the idea of getting to come here and smoke comfortably on our farm,” explains Aspuria. At the recently renovated Inn at 2nd & C in Old Town Eureka, co-owner Jenny Metz is also enthusiastic about the intersection of tourists and cannabis. While current

regulations prevent her upscale 23-room hotel from adopting the ‘bud and breakfast’ model, she has a healthy outlook toward a sustainable future for cannabis. Located across the street from Humboldt Cannabis Tours new office, Metz says that the two businesses will collaborate to meet all their guests needs. An environmentalist who has lived in Humboldt for 23 years, Metz is excited to promote the positive side of the cannabis industry. When regulations allow, Metz plans to offer in-house spa treatments using cannabis-infused bath products. Slowly and steadily, public access to the delicacies of Humboldt’s cannabis culture will be available to tourists in a variety of ways. In a mash-up of cultural icons, Wonderland Nursery, one of Humboldt’s best known farm supply stores, recently relocated to the One Log House in southern Humboldt. A world-famous tourist attraction located in Piercy, the 32-by-7-foot log house was carved from a 2,100-year-old redwood tree in 1946. Now the home of Wonder Log Dispensary, owner Kevin Jodrey plans to develop a lounge and cannabis museum on the property. “If we do this right, we’ll create an experience that lots of people can enjoy,” explains Jodrey’s son, Nocona. Farther north in Arcata, Juli Eagle is the owner of Table Collective, a rotating culinary pop-up that hosts creative chefs at unique locations throughout the region. Eagle designs her events to “showcase Humboldt County in a lovely and intimate manner,” an ideal platform for high culture cannabis events. “I think many chefs are curious about working with the plant,” says Eagle, who hopes to bring well-known cannabis brands and infused dinners to the Table Collective. Future events set among the verdant fauna of Humboldt’s farms seem like a natural progression. In 2013, long before infused dinner parties were on the menu, writer Emily Brady published Humboldt: Life on America’s Marijuana Frontier, chronicling her year enmeshed in cannabis culture. Reflecting on Humboldt’s current prospects, she writes, “It’s invaluable to learn about the different ways to grow and process cannabis, so that consumers can make informed decisions about the products they purchase.” Believing that Humboldt has paid a heavy price for its dependence on an illegal crop, Brady is happy to see legalization, and cannabis tourism, finally arrive. “I grew up in Napa where millions of people visit every year to learn how wine is made,” explains Brady. Her comparison of boutique cannabis to California’s wine country is made often, but rightly so. As the legal cannabis industry grows, a huge marketing opportunity lies in educating consumers on sustainable growing practices and the myriad of extracts, oils, tinctures and edibles available in the recreational marketplace. As Brady points out, there’s no place better than Humboldt for such experiential learning to take place. “Visitors will have the chance to learn about the history of prohibition from the folks who grew undercover and ran from helicopters. They have all these wild and wacky stories,” says Brady. “All of this in one of the most beautiful places on earth.” she adds. While the challenges and detractors are numerous, mimicry of Humboldt County’s rugged Pacific coastline, majestic redwoods and cannabis legacy is impossible. Coupled with the growing number of permitted cannabis farms and innovative “ganjapreneurs”, the region is ready to welcome a new green rush. “On our worst days, Humboldt County is drop dead gorgeous,” says Aspuria. “People from all over the world want to come here.”

“Visitors will have the chance to learn about the history of prohibition from the folks who grew undercover and ran from helicopters. They have all these wild and wacky stories. All of this in one of the most beautiful places on earth.”

IT WASN’T EASY for Adam Grossman to watch his father suffer from debilitating back pain. As prescription medication provided little relief, Grossman reacted as many caring family members do: He started Googling for help. Using Internet research, a borrowed crockpot and some good weed from the right friend, Grossman created his first DIY cannabis balm. The homemade meds worked their magic. After a few weeks, Grossman’s father, “Papa,” was able to get out bed and leave hospice. No one was happier to see Papa return home than his loyal pit bull, Barkley. The pair remain forever memorialized on the Papa & Barkley logo, a wellness company based in Humboldt County. The experience was a transformative one for Grossman. Today, Papa & Barkley creates healing cannabis balms, tinctures and patches that are alleviating pain and opening minds across California. Since launching Papa & Barkley in 2015, Grossman and his business partner, Guy Rocourt, have heard countless stories that parallel Papa’s experience. Papa & Barkley’s products deliver cannabis via tinctures and topicals packed with cannabinoids, the medicinal compound responsible for alleviating chronic pain, anxiety, immunodeficiency disorders and a range of modern ailments. Papa & Barkley is based in the industrial hub of Eureka to stay in close proximity to Humboldt County’s premium, sun-grown cannabis flowers. “There’s a special feeling in Humboldt that’s important to all of us at Papa & Barkley,” says Grossman. Though Papa & Barkley has grown into a reliable brand for consumers across California, the company’s roots in Humboldt County run deep. Rocourt oversees production in Eureka, where his talents as the master extraction artist build on nearly 20 years of experience in the cannabis industry. The company’s commitment to stringent standards is reflected in rigorous testing that each Papa & Barkley product undergoes to ensure products are free of pesticides, heavy metals or additives. As Grossman explains, this obsession with quality begins with sourcing sustainably grown cannabis that thrives in Humboldt County’s unique ecosystem. “We work with local farmers with generations of experience growing this amazing flower in the richest possible natural conditions,” says Grossman. “We feel privileged to be here and try

hard to represent Humboldt’s unique quality of life.” As legalization transforms the economic landscape of Humboldt County, Grossman understands, “All eyes are on us,” as a leading cannabis company in the legal era. “We feel lucky to be in Humboldt,” says Grossman. “It’s something we don’t take for granted.” Committed to engaging with the community, Papa & Barkley employs Humboldt County residents, supports the local fire department and sponsors everyone’s favorite hometown baseball team, the Humboldt Crabs. For Humboldt County, transforming cannabis into tinctures and topicals is still a radically new delivery system for the region’s best-known agricultural export. Topicals include salves, ointments or oils rubbed directly onto the skin, intended to ease joint pain, sore muscles, arthritis and inflammation. Topicals with a higher level of THC can spur some psychoactivity for the consumer but if strategically applied to avoid contact with major blood veins, the impact is greatly reduced. To skip the high entirely, Papa & Barkley offers several products with ramped up levels of CBD, one of the cannabis plant’s naturally occurring compounds. Known for its healing properties, CBD products like Papa & Barkley’s 1:30 Tincture allows for many new consumers to experiment with cannabis safely in their comfort zones.* Though micro-dosing with a tincture looks and feels profoundly different from rolling up a joint, the unmistakable smell and taste of cannabis remain unchanged. When experimenting with the wide array of CBD cannabis products available in California’s recreational marketplace, many of us need a spoonful of sugar to make the cannabis go down. But tinctures, typically suspended in grain alcohol or oil, are incredibly versatile ingredients for the well-stocked home pantry or bar. While cannabis-infused oils or butter are dependable ingredients for preparing cannabis cuisine, tinctures are ideal for the finishing touch in an infused cocktail. With a nod toward Humboldt County’s green future and the end of an era, this cocktail showcases the old-timey pairing of whiskey and maple, brightened by fresh lemon juice and the grounding herbal flavors of rosemary and cannabis. Whether for health or pleasure, I designed this cocktail for relaxation and healing.

Appellation Destination What terroir really means By Chrystal Ortiz

HUMBOLDTCANNABISMAGAZINE.COM | SPRING 2018


IT’S NO SURPRISE that this county is known worldwide for cannabis. For decades much of the cannabis that came from this region needed no name other than “Humboldt.” In the same way that sparkling wine grown in Champagne is simply called Champagne, so is Humboldt synonymous with the finest cannabis. As policy develops in California to regulate the commercial production of cannabis, called the Medical and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA), a major concern of Humboldt County’s small, independent cannabis-producing families is how to prevent the corporatization and corruption of this beloved craft. One solution often put forth by farmers is the creation of an appellation of origin. Based upon the French term appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC), it translates to “protected designation by its origin,” or more clearly, “to be called by its place.” By creating an appellation of origin, rural producers can participate in the marketplace with a product that is not generic and capture economic value for traditional practices, quality standards and geographical boundaries. While other producing regions in California may desire an AOC, the case can easily be made that Humboldt’s top crop is already known by its place. The task is how to protect it. Although it may seem like a long and daunting process to claim appellations of origin in California, it is not that far off. The state of California implemented a few concepts of AOC into the MAUCRSA. It is now state law that cannabis products cannot be marketed using a county name in which it was not grown in. In law, this is referred to as a geographical indicator (GI). While a GI is an important aspect of AOC, it is just one part of the big picture. As quoted by Justin Calvino, founding member of the Mendocino Appellations Project, “There is a difference between being grown in an area and grown of the area.” He is referring to the many other aspects including the regional micro-climate (watersheds, fog banks and other environmental nuances), the complex set of standards and the Traditional Knowledge (TK) component which includes the traditions and varietals passed down through generations of growers in the same region. Many cannabis farmers believe it is not enough to simply be located in the right ZIP code, as the state has done in legislation, but to create a true appellation with rigorous standards following the French AOC model. The American Viticultural Association (AVA) has a model that regulates geographical boundary lines and what percentage of wine must come from within those lines, but the AVA is an appellation designation lacking a defined set of standards. Due to the varied cultivation styles of cannabis, the GI is an important aspect but it could fall short of protecting and enhancing Humboldt’s revered crop without a rigorous definition of standards. Recognizing that terroir is a critical component, there is a lot of work to be done to determine the standard growing condition. Due to the illegal nature of cannabis cultivation, many methods have been adopted in Humboldt not to grow the best quality cannabis, but to escape detection from law enforcement. Indoor cultivation and greenhouses are both examples where terroir is difficult to claim. If a farmer is controlling the climate, the soil temps and the soil itself is imported, how is terroir defined? If the growing environment is so controlled it could be moved anywhere, how is that going to qualify for an appellation designation? How much influence can the farmer have on the terroir? Who is going to decide these critical standards and how will they be implemented? Farmers in Humboldt County are beginning to answer these questions by working together to promote the crop it is so well known for. Cannabis organically grown in the ground, using natural sunlight and at least having access to and interaction with the

History of appellation d'origine contrôlée AOC dates back to the early 1400s when Roquefort cheese was first protected by the parliament. Similar to trademark protections, the concept of AOC is to control or protect the authenticity of products grown in a certain way, with a clearly defined set of standards and acknowledging its unique terroir. Terroir is a French term used to describe the land, the unique environmental factors that contribute to the crop ­— including the varietal, the weather and the farming practices. In modern law, most notable AOC designations were given to wine-producing regions, as the land imparted a certain flavor to the wine beyond the grape varietal. These subtle flavors were also influenced by the culture of the winemaker (traditional practices in each region), the timing of the pruning, harvesting and fermenting, the types of materials used to age the wine, the unique microclimates and even the plants and trees growing nearby. All of these components are aspects of terroir. Interestingly, other products given AOC designation are also related to the terroir, even if they are not crops. For cheeses, the terroir influences the flavor by the grasses that the sheep and cows eat and the earthen caves the cheeses are cured in. For meats, such as the Salt Marsh lamb, it is the salinity in the soil that imparts the flavor on the meat from that region. Some other examples of well-known products with geographical reference and their influence on the consumer are: Darjeeling tea, Blue Mountain coffee, Irish whiskey, Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiana cheese, French lentils and Manuka honey. The AOC is governed in France by the Institut National des Appellations d’Origine (INAO). Members of the INAO committee are ministers of agriculture, legal and finance interests and delegates from producing regions. The INAO HUMBOLDT CANNABIS


consults with regional producers to define the geographical boundaries along with the standards and rules to qualify for appellation status. Once these standards are determined, the AOC details labelling requirements including allowable font sizes, acceptable uses of the regions name and the placement of a seal guaranteeing its authenticity. The INAO protects this seal like a trademark throughout France. These AOC designations are not protected internationally, so many countries enter into bilateral agreements directly with other nations or seek protection with organizations such as the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), which has established nations that will protect AOC through the Lisbon Agreement.

native soil form the baseline parameters for the process. The number of days without rainfall, temperature swings from day to night, altitude, coastal fog river influence, varietals (strains) and resistance to pests and pathogens are some of the data points farmers can use to begin documenting what makes the appellation unique. Also of important consideration are ripeness, harvest protocols, drying, curing and processing techniques. MAUCRSA (SB 94) has language referring to the development of appellations of origin by January of 2021. In a surprising twist, the word “origin” was replaced with “appellation of standards, practices and varietals” in its latest draft. It is clear that, in Humboldt, both origin and standards form the foundation of a strong and defendable appellation designation and neither is strong enough without the other. Humboldt County, with its ancient forests, steep terrain and six beautiful rivers, is already naturally connected by watersheds. Due to its remote location and backto-the-land culture, Humboldt residents are intimately connected to the land and its influences. From community hubs and granges, farmers have started to organize and develop the framework for AOC. The traditional knowledge that has been passed from farmer to farmer, parent to child, and neighborhood to neighborhood is being written down. Genetics that have been cultivated and shared in watersheds throughout the past 50 or more years in secret are having their genomes mapped. The Humboldt County agricultural commissioner has implemented a state-of-the-art seal that bears the county logo, anti-counterfeit ink and a QR code for consumers to guarantee the authenticity of all cannabis products from the region. Groups such as The Humboldt Sun Growers Guild, Humboldt County Growers Alliance and the International Cannabis Farmers Association are all working on ways to secure an appellation that will protect and empower the Humboldt legacy. The ICFA has sponsored the creation of a Sun Grown Cannabis Commission in a bill that is being authored by Dan Levine in San Francisco (AB 1810). This statewide commission will take a major role in identifying geographical boundaries, shaping standards and launching a marketing campaign to highlight the features of sun grown cannabis. ICFA has also created a rubric for grading and sorting that outlines the baseline standards of cannabis inflorescence. The Humboldt Sun Growers Guild has been educating its member base on the benefits of appellation of origin and protecting the regions name by marketing a premium cannabis brand appropriately named True Humboldt. The California Growers Association and the Mendocino Appellations Project have been instrumental in getting legislation passed to encourage the development of this type of appellation control. Growing the world’s finest cannabis is a complex skill set that has been carefully nurtured and passed down through generations secretly and at great risk. Beyond the typical growing conditions farmers face, there has been an entirely different set of obstacles in this clandestine crop. The very fact that Humboldt’s cannabis was grown in small batches, in secret and by a culture of people with a moral obligation to fight an unjust law is part of what makes it so unique. Protecting that heritage is a fight the farmers of Humboldt won’t give up easily. It’s in the terroir.

In Humboldt, both origin and standards form the foundation of a strong and defendable appellation designation.

A Logo for Progress How farmers are promoting product and ecology alike By Elijah Kineg

stepping into the realm of legalization, cannabis farmers are discovering new means of distributing their product and communicating the quality of their work and personal mission statements. In the case of the Save the Van Arken logo, we find a holistic branding for a high quality product and a banner waved by progressive and ecologically mindful cultivators. This logo dates back to late 2016 during a Mattole Creek Tributary meeting held by Sanctuary Forest. After learning that the Mattole region was being liquidated, the organization held a series of community discussions on claiming ownership of the Van Arken watershed. While the total cost is great, approximately $9 million, the organization would find themselves managing the cost through a much smaller metric. Lands Program Director Galen Doherty recalls this meeting as having “unequivocal” positivity from community members and watershed owners who admonish alternative buyouts from logging companies. “The land is roughly $5,500 an acre. Nine million dollars seemed like a lot but we had to start somewhere,” says Doherty. “How about we fund half an acre this year and half next year?” Following this query were two more voices piping up from the community saying they, too, would be happy to put money toward an acre of the Van Arken. As the meeting concluded, Doherty and others decided it would be advantageous to start a fund-an-acre campaign under an official moniker. The unifying energy of the project is not the only positive proponent. If Sanctuary Forest is successful in purchasing this land in full, it will prevent deforestation and damaging of habitats found in the Mattole watershed. Species of fish like the steelhead and Chinook are at risk of losing their habitat, and the coho could be rendered extinct locally. Logging and manipulation of river banks deprive these fish of the natural flow and temperature regulation required for their use of the tributary. A general thinning of forest body and disturbance of root systems results in a drier, more fire-susceptible forest. Thus far, more than $2 million has been rasied by the Fund-An-Acre campaign with 80 donors in the last year. These donors have been able to breakdown their offerings into manageable WITH MORE PEOPLE

payment plans. Of those 80 donors, 15 of them have been cannabis farms, including Briceland Forest, Happy Day and Huckleberry Hill Farms. In exchange for their support, the farms are awarded with a Save Van Arken logo. “This is really exciting,” says Doherty. “Be it on their store front, on a bumper sticker on their car, on their pre-rolled pack of joints. It says that this person or business is permanently protecting an acre of a highly valuable, incredibly bio-diverse land in the Mattole headwaters.” Doherty estimates that the farmers are offsetting their farms’ footprints at least once over and in turn, recasting the image of the cannabis farmer as a individual who cares just as much about the earth below them as the flowers it supplies. While the logo itself is hosted across farm’s official websites, its imprint on various products is often coupled with a QR code. Scanning this code will enhance the concept with images and videos of the Van Arken creek and forest land. “It’s not what people usually see or think of when they go to buy some Humboldt County cannabis,” says Doherty. “Before legalization, no farmer had a way to stand up and say, ‘I’m doing everything I can to reduce my impact on the land and be sustainable.’” In brandishing this movement, farmers who were doing the right thing all along can be publically recognized for their good intention and divorce negative stigmas of being ecologically harmful. “They immediately saw it as a clear way to stand with an environmental group on a really important project and show the world that they’re as eco-friendly as possible.” While grant funding fuels 55 percent of the budget, donor dollars are essential to protecting the Van Arken. When appealing to the state, a pledge, even an unfulfilled one, will be counted and represents the project’s strength. “We see this as the beginning of a symbiotic relationship,” says Doherty. As they go statewide to communicate their message, they are advertising the farms that have pledged and are promoting their products. “The more we can get that consumer education, the more people will choose regenerative cannabis from Humboldt County. That’s where the best weed comes from and it helps protect land in the county. That’s how we’ll drive business back to these farmers.” HUMBOLDT CANNABIS

Sauce on the side: proper dosing for everyone by Nora Mounce Photographs by Amy Kumler Styling by Lynn Leishman

schlepping burgers in the restaurant business, you know that S.O.S. is shorthand for “sauce on the side.” Deliver a Cobb salad smothered in blue cheese dressing to the wrong Betty and your tip is toast. A good industry practice is to hand deliver S.O.S. orders to the chef, as serving someone with food allergies incorrectly is a legitimate reason to sound a distress signal. S.O.S. is also a good way to avoid the culinary faux pas of “too salty” or “too sweet” or, in the case of cannabis-infused cuisine, “so strong I slept for 8 hours.” While many Californians are enjoying greater access to mild and therapeutic cannabis products in 2018, edibles are still hampered with a reputation for ruining music festivals. In the context of cannabis-infused cuisine, proper dosing is critical. Where a dab of infused sauce on a cracker might be perfection for some, a dollop is required to take others to their happy place. But like food, cannabis is both medicine and pleasure that’s best enjoyed with friends and family.  By keeping sauce on the side, everyone can still break bread together when cannabis-infused cuisine is on the menu.  To get you started, we created three delicious and versatile sauces using Pot d’Huile, a FOR ANYONE WHO’S SERVED TIME

culinary-grade cannabis-infused olive oil made in San Francisco. Each of these “sauces” can function as a dip atop baguette slices or crudités or work beautifully as a marinade for grilled vegetables and kabobs. With DIY cannabis-infused oils, the pungent smell of herb is seemingly unavoidable. At Pot d’Huile, the team perfected its formula, rendering a cannabis-infused olive oil that delivers “precision, flavor neutrality and maximum benefit.” Pot d’Huile smells of rich green olives and its color is the golden hue of many traditional olive oils. When we tested our infused recipes with the straight version, the taste difference was amazingly undetectable. Available at dispensaries throughout California, the precision dosing of Pot d’Huile is a reliable tool for exploring the delicious and medicinal world of cannabis cuisine.

Herb Farm Lemon Curd We dialed back the sugar from a traditional lemon curd and added rustic lavender flowers to complement the cannabis infusion. This recipe nearly fills two pint-size Mason jars and contains 15 milligrams of THC in total. For comparison, the state of California now requires that edibles cannot have

a THC level that exceeds 100 milligrams total and 10 milligrams per serving.  So always consume conscientiously and at your own pace, but a small spoonful should contain less than 1 milligram of THC ­— a genuine microdose. Round out a cheese and charcuterie plate with a cheerful jar of curd or spoon the bright yellow sauce atop slices of savory goat cheesecake (recipe follows).    INGREDIENTS:

4 tablespoons butter, softened 1 tablespoon Pot d’Huile ½ cup sugar 2 eggs 2 egg yolks 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice 2 teaspoons dried lavender

HUMBOLDTCANNABISMAGAZINE.COM | SPRING 2018

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CURD:

Combine butter, Pot d’Huile and sugar in a standing mixer. Beat for 3 to 4 minutes. Add eggs and egg yolks, 1 at a time, while beating. Add the lemon juice and lavender. Mix for 1 minute more. At this stage, the mixture will look curdled but don’t fret. Pour the lemony mixture into a small saucepan over a medium-low heat, stirring often, until it becomes smooth and slightly thicker. Increase the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.* The entire cooking process will take about 10 minutes. Transfer the curd to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold (the curd will continue to thicken in the fridge).   


Everyday Goat Cheese Tart One of my favorite cookbook writers and Francophiles, Dorie Greenspan has made a career of demystifying French cuisine for American kitchens. Steering clear of frightening aspics or elaborate multi-course dinners, Greenspan has a childlike excitement for simple, everyday French foods. Though I’ve never taken up residence a Paris, like Greenspan, I remember being blown away at the quality of humble dinner rolls sold at any neighborhood bakery. Such simple kitchen lessons are what Greenspan offers her readers. For me, none of her recipes is more fabulous than this neither sweet nor savory goat cheese tart. A dead simple recipe that relies on beaten egg whites for lightness and texture, the tart is a delicious way to use the log of goat cheese lingering in your cheese drawer. Full of rustic charm, the tart is sturdy enough to easily slice and top with a medley of cannabis-infused sauces. Try this recipe for your next dinner party. Bon appetit!    INGREDIENTS: 

5 ¼ 9 3

large eggs, separated pinch salt cup sugar, divided ounces soft goat cheese tablespoons cornstarch

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 400˚ F and generously butter an 8-inch springform pan.   In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they start to form soft peaks. Still whipping, gradually add 2 tablespoons sugar, and beat until the whites are firmer and glossier (they should hold their shape). Carefully transfer whites to another bowl so that you can continue using the mixer.  Beat the egg yolks, goat cheese, the remaining sugar and cornstarch until smooth and creamy. Remove bowl from mixing stand. Using a rubber spatula, gradually stir ¼ of the whites into yolk and cheese mixture to lighten it. Stirring carefully with a folding motion, gradually stir in the remaining whites. Scrape the batter into your prepared springform pan. Bake for 15 minutes, then turn the oven temperature down to 350 F. Continue to bake for 35 minutes more, or until the top (which most likely will have cracked) is dark brown and firm. Transfer pan to a cooling rack and allow to rest at least 10 minutes. Carefully remove the sides of the springform. Cool the cake to room temperature before serving; it will settle as it cools.

Pot d’Huile Roasted Red Pepper & Walnut Dip Adapted from Martha Stewart, no stranger to the culinary potential of cannabis, this recipe is inspired by muhammara, a classic Turkish dipping sauce. A colorful and surprising change of pace from the ubiquity of hummus, the dip can be served over roasted asparagus or smarten up an appetizer board of crudités, cheese and crackers. The entire recipe contains a modest dose of 30 milligrams of THC.   INGREDIENTS: 

1 2 4 1 1 1/2 1 1 1 2 1

pound (2-3) red bell peppers, seeds and stems discarded garlic cloves, sliced or roughly chopped ounces walnuts, toasted (plus more for garnish) cup fresh breadcrumbs teaspoons paprika teaspoon ground cumin tablespoon balsamic vinegar  tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice  tablespoons Pot d’Huile teaspoon salt  freshly ground blackpepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

Place peppers on a baking pan under a broiler with the skin side facing up. Allow to cook about 10-15 minutes. You don’t want them to scorch, but to be mildly blackened all over. Using tongs, transfer roasted peppers to bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand 15 minutes to steam. Peel away blackened bits of skin and any remaining stems or seeds. Place peppers inside the bowl of your food processor.  Add garlic, toasted walnuts, breadcrumbs, spices, vinegar, lemon juice, Pot d’Huile, salt and pepper to food processor. Pulse until thoroughly combined, leaving chunky if preferred. Taste for salt and pepper. Garnish with walnuts and serve.

Everything Green Chimichurri Whenever I throw this recipe together, I want it in my fridge forever. A staple in the red meat-heavy cuisine of South America, chimichurri comes from the Basque word tximitxurri, loosely translated as, “a mixture of several things in no particular order.” Whenever I have an abundance of green herbs in the house, I add garlic, olive oil and salt, and voilà, chimichurri! If you’re short the fresh oregano or a shallot, substitute accordingly and make it anyway — you won’t be disappointed. Packing more potency for those who enjoy it, the ¼ cup of Pot d’Huile provides 60 milligrams of THC in the entire recipe. Dip roasted vegetables and baguettes in your chimichurri or brush the green sauce on skewers of meat or chicken breasts. Or add some apple cider vinegar and you’ll have a delicious cannabis-infused salad dressing! The options are endless.    INGREDIENTS:

½ cup red wine vinegar 1 teaspoon salt 3-4 garlic cloves, minced 1 shallot, diced 1 small fresh jalapeño, seeded and diced ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves, stems discarded  ¼ cup fresh parsley, stems discarded  tablespoons fresh 2 oregano, minced ¼ cup Pot d’Huile ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil  INSTRUCTIONS:

Combine red wine vinegar, salt, garlic, shallot and jalapeño in the bowl of a food processor. Let it stand while you prepare the cilantro, parsley and oregano. Add herbs to food processor and pulse until combined. With the machine on, slowly pour in both the Pot d’Huile and regular olive oil. Scrape into a bowl and serve immediately.

Caring for the community and the earth

THE ENVIRONMENT OF HUMBOLDT COUNTY has always been its bread-and-butter. Here on the North Coast of California, natural abundance is firmly a part of the county’s identity — past and present. It was this resource-rich land that ignited and fueled Humboldt’s world-famous cannabis cultivation industry. Now nearly five decades in, our community and farmers are well aware that if we wish to continue enjoying the bounty of our natural resources, we must do everything we can to employ these resources sustainably. This is why the last decade has seen a number of agriculture and environmental firms rise to answer the call, including Dirty Business Soil Analytics, Mother Earth Engineering, SoilScape Solutions, Hollie Hall & Associates and more. These eco-consultants, analysts and engineers serve the needs of Humboldt County cannabis farmers through a range of services, from large projects, such as watershed restoration and renewable energy systems, to more focused micro-services, such as customized amendment mixes and soil testing. While these firms may differ in their specialities, they have the shared goal of providing sustainable solutions for farmers so that they can produce high quality cannabis with minimal environmental impact.

Dirt makes the community difference

Gr

Dirty Business Soil Analytics (DBS) ­— started in 2012 by soil scientists Sarah Schuette and Joanna Berg — was the first certified on-site agricultural laboratory in the county. They offer a variety of holistic soil remediation techniques — including compost tea configurations, soil and nutrient analysis and amendment formulations, all which offer a natural way to restore healthy and vibrant populations of healthy soil microbes. These practices are designed to regenerate the soil while minimizing fertilizer use, salt accumulation and leaching. DBS offers help beyond soil remediation, including plant tissue and water analysis, pest identification, comprehensive farm management plans and helpful educational workshops. All their services are designed to remediate environmental impacts while working as a kind of preventative medicine for farmers’ crops. Their guidance in these remediation techniques can mean all the difference between crop success and crop failure — both now and in the future One such useful technique is integrated pest management (IPM). IPM is a sustainable agriculture method designed to reduce pesticide use through beneficial insects, companion plants and monitoring practices. It is also required for cannabis licensing. DBS recognizes the value of an IPM plan not only for licensed cannabis cultivators but for all farmers looking to remediate their environmental impact. This is why they offer group IPM workshops in addition to one-on-one consultation plans. Some small-scale farmers simply can’t afford a personalized consultation and DBS views their group workshops as a great way to fill this need. Schuette says, “Cannabis farmers in particular haven’t had access to resources like other farmers have, which has set a lot of them up for failure. For example, many of these small-scale farmers have been beholden to expensive and unnecessary nutrients and don’t know anything about integrated pest management. These workshops are intended to help our farmers learn and become self-sufficient.” According to the team at DBS, access to resources, education and self-sufficiency are key to success for sustainable cannabis farming. “The biggest need is HUMBOLDT CANNABIS

affordable support,” Schuette says. “If I want my farmers to be successful, I have to meet them where they are. After all, on a practical level, their success helps my business. But on an emotional level, I really care about them and the community and I want both to thrive.”

Giving Mother Earth a seat at the table Another Humboldt County company focused on protecting the Earth and empowering farmers is Mother Earth Engineering (MEE). MEE is a firm of civil environmental engineers started by Kendra Miers and Patricia Lai in 2016 in order to fulfill a need they saw in the county for engineering and planning for cannabis farmers. Their intention was to “give Mother Earth a seat at the table” and offer a holistic, balanced viewpoint in civil and environmental engineering. Their vision, in addition to helping Humboldt cannabis farmers implement sustainable practices, was to work in a way that was meaningful and sustainable to themselves. Mother Earth Engineering is a full-service engineering firm, working with cannabis farmers on all levels of land development, renewable energy systems, hydrology and watershed restoration. It also offers consultation services for cannabis cultivation permitting and helps guide farmers through the ever-changing landscape of recreational compliance. Compliance consultants are valuable to the Humboldt County cultivator. Requirements can differ from county to county and what the state allows isn’t always permissible in each county. It can be confusing for some cultivators, especially for those working on a small scale. As Miers notes, “Environmental regulations are stricter [for cannabis] than any other industry in history and a lot of farmers now are paying for the sins of the loggers from decades ago. It can be difficult to understand all the requirements — every time you think you have it down and that you’re totally within compliance, something else seems to pop up that you need. That misunderstanding has put a lot of small farmers out of business.” MEE founders consider themselves working on the front lines with their clients. They, like DBS, are emotionally connected both to the environment and the community in Humboldt County. Schuette of DBS says, “What Humboldt County needs are good, quality consultants who care about the community and the environment. We think all of us can bring Humboldt to the highest standard and raise the bar even further.” These eco-consultants don’t just want to help farmers become compliant. They want to empower them to make their cannabis cultivation practices truly sustainable, holistic and renewable.

“What Humboldt County needs are good, quality consultants who care about the community and the environment.”

Solvent-Free Solutions Innovation, simplicity in Humboldt’s extract industry By Colleen Ferguson

WE CAN’T SAY FOR CERTAIN how long humans have been using cannabis extracts, but we do know the practice of mechanically extracting resin from the cannabis plant is many centuries old. The first use of the term hasish occurs in print in the 10th century, but the history of mechanical (aka solvent-free) extracts likely dates back much farther. Today’s landscape of cannabis extracts is a broad one, and can be daunting to those unfamiliar with the terminology of this ever-expanding area of innovation. For our purposes here, we’ll group extracts into two primary categories: those produced using chemical solvents, and those produced without. A variety of chemical solvents (i.e. butane, alcohol, propane) and processes (i.e. CO₂, supercritical fluid extraction, BHO closed-loop blasting, etc.) are used to extract cannabis resin. The end products of these processes can find their way into everything from tinctures to edibles to vape pens and better shops will typically feature a large variety of extract options. The popularity and innovation in chemical extraction processes and products have been staggering over the last decade — scientific know-how has fueled research and innovation and the production of safe, tested, solvent extracts by reputable, permitted operators is widespread. However, they aren’t the only game in town. Solvent-free extracts have been going through their own innovative processes and offer great options for those who wish to keep things a little simpler. For the vast majority of cannabis extraction history, the practice of separating resin from cannabis plants was accomplished without the use of chemical solvents. Today, solvent-free continues to be a great way to make high-quality, tasty extracts. There are some fine options out there, but for our purposes we’ll look at three solvent-free options available at better dispensaries in your neighborhood. And yes, you can still use your dab rig.

The three kings of solvent-free Kief. Kief is, simply put, the dried trichomes (resin glands) of cannabis plants, separated from the plant using friction in a process called dry sifting. Dry sifting yields a golden powder (kief) which can then be pressed into hashish, used in tinctures, used to make edibles or smoked as is. This is about as simple as extracts get, and the extract that many cannabis users encounter first. You’ve likely collected kief from your HUMBOLDT CANNABIS

flower grinders for years. Kief offers a euphoric and relaxing experience for most users, and is widely available in its raw powder form. Bubble hash. Bubble hash, or water hash, is the trichomes of cannabis plants separated from the plants using ice-cold water and agitation. This is accomplished by using a progression of filter bags, or bubble bags, made of differently sized mesh fabrics that separate solids according to size. Basically, the theory is that only the good stuff filters through the mesh of each filter bag until the end product contains only trichomes. The quality of bubble hash can vary widely, and the best bubble is known as full-melt because — well, it melts fully when heated. Bubble hash is an easily accessible extract and can be used in a variety of ways, very similar to kief with similar effects. Press rosin. The newest and most exciting innovation in solvent-free extracts is press rosin or simply rosin. Produced using precise ratios of heat, pressure and time, this process is the future of mechanical extracts and offers solvent-free extracts that are highly concentrated while also preserving terpenes (molecules generally associated with flavor and aroma) along with cannabinoids. This is a big deal — not only does this preserve each strain’s specific flavor profile, but terpenes are directly responsible for the entourage effect — a kind of synergy of molecules that yields many positive results for medical cannabis users, especially those who choose CBDs as their primary medicines. There exists a growing body of evidence that this entourage effect increases blood flow, enhances cortical activity, and kills respiratory pathogens like MRSA — an antibiotic-resistant bacteria that claims thousands of lives every year in the U.S. Also, as promised, rosin works great in your dab rig.

The Humboldt approach To get a better understanding of press rosin and the process used to produce it, I went over to Pure Source — a Humboldt County rosin-only extract company on a mission to spread the good word about solvent-free extracts and the unique benefits of keeping things simple. I met with Bryan and Kyle (two of the three owners of Pure Source) and quickly came to understand that ethics is squarely atop their list of priorities. To put it in their own words — quality in, quality out. They use only high-quality flowers to make their extracts (no floor sweepings!), and all raw plant material is tested for purity prior to extraction. Pure Source is a family-owned business with deep roots in Humboldt County. The proprietors are all born and raised in Humboldt, and committed to producing the cleanest, highest quality extracts possible by partnering with local farms known for quality and purity. They stand by their sources, and put them right on the label so there’s no need to wonder or worry. They currently feature a variety of CBD extract products, including a tincture for your pets, and will soon be releasing a line of high-quality vape pens featuring their fantastic THC rosins. All wine lovers, they were quick to draw a parallel between fine wines and their artisan-quality rosins. In Kyle’s words, “When you smell a Napa Cabernet, you know it.” They want to grow that kind of recognition for our area. They believe Humboldt is rightly at the center of the cannabis universe, and are among the large number of Humboldt County producers dedicated to ensuring that only the best products available wear the Humboldt brand. Now that you have the skinny on some great solvent-free extract options, get down to your favorite shop and keep it simple. No matter what your extract needs may be, there’s a solvent-free solution that fits your life. And as always, ask for Humboldt by name — you won’t be disappointed.

FARMS

FULL MOON FARMS

TASTE THE DIFFERENCE We are a family run, award winning, nationally recognized farm. We focus on small batch, high quality artisan cannabis that comes from decades of experience. As an ecologically responsible farm, our ethos towards water conservation has made us one of the first farms to strive to be 100% water neutral through our rainwater catchment model.

Cultivating a healthy living soil, with the aid of companion planting and cover crops insures a healthier, more resilient plant naturally, and that is good for all of us. Here at Full Moon Farms, it’s more than just a job, it’s a lifestyle. We hope you enjoy our organic sun grown flowers as much as we have enjoyed lovingly raising them for you.
