When is Cannabis the freshest?

30 November, 2023

When it comes to cannabis, freshness is not just a preference. It's the pinnacle of potency, flavor, and the overall user experience. Connoisseurs and casual consumers alike know that the freshest cannabis is synonymous with top quality. But when is cannabis considered the freshest? And how does one ensure that the flower they are consuming is at its peak? Our San Diego cannabis facility has mastered the art of delivering freshly trimmed cannabis directly to you, our customers, ensuring an unmatched level of freshness.

When is Cannabis the Freshest?

Cannabis is freshest immediately after it has been harvested and properly cured. Curing is a controlled drying process that allows the flower to maintain its therapeutic and aromatic properties. When done correctly, it enhances the overall potency of the cannabinoids and terpenes—the compounds responsible for the plant’s effects and scent. The timeline for peak freshness is relatively narrow; the window begins to close as soon as the curing process is complete, typically a few weeks after harvest.

The journey from harvest to sale is critical; the less time it takes, the fresher the cannabis. Ideally, cannabis should be stored in airtight containers and kept in a cool, dark place to preserve its quality. Exposure to air, light, or heat can degrade cannabinoids and terpenes, diminishing the flower's potency and flavor profile.

Our Commitment to Freshness

In our facility in San Diego, we've fine-tuned the art and science of cannabis cultivation. Our flowers are not only grown with the utmost care and precision but are also harvested and trimmed by hand to maintain their delicate trichomes, where the magic of potency and flavor resides. We understand that the journey from our trimmers to our customers' hands is a race against time, and we're winning it.

Our vertically integrated process means that we oversee every step from seedling to sale. This tight-knit control allows us to curate the environment in which our cannabis plants flourish, harvesting them at the exact moment they reach full maturation. This exact timing is critical, as harvesting too early or too late can affect the levels of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids, not to mention the aromatic terpenes that give each strain its unique scent and flavor profile.

Direct from Trimmers to You

Once our skilled trimmers have hand-processed our cannabis, it’s only a matter of hours before it's ready for our customers. Our proximity to the San Diego market is our ace in the hole, allowing us to deliver our product at a remarkable speed. The advantage of local distribution cannot be overstated—our cannabis is often enjoyed while other non-local products are still in transit.

The result is an experience that is as fresh as it is profound. Our customers regularly report a notable difference in the quality of their experience when using our products. They celebrate the vibrant colors, the rich and pungent aromas, and the clean, smooth smoke that only truly fresh cannabis can offer. It’s a sensory delight that also translates into efficacy; the therapeutic effects are robust and enduring.

Why Freshness Matters

The freshness of cannabis impacts more than just the sensory experience—it affects the therapeutic efficacy as well. Fresh cannabis provides a fuller profile of cannabinoids and terpenes, which work together synergistically in what is known as the entourage effect. This harmony of compounds is what many attribute to the full therapeutic potential of cannabis.

Moreover, fresh cannabis is simply more pleasurable to consume. The texture, the flavor, and even the burn rate of the flower are all optimized when it's fresh. For those who use cannabis for medicinal purposes, the fresh product can mean a more reliable and effective treatment for their symptoms.

The San Diego Advantage

Our San Diego facility benefits from one of the most favorable climates for cannabis cultivation in the United States. This idyllic setting means that our plants bask in the perfect balance of sunlight and coastal breeze, contributing to their robust health and vitality. Our location also gives us the unique ability to deliver our product with incredible speed within the region.

Customer Trust and Education

Our commitment to freshness is also a commitment to our customers. We believe in transparency and education, and we’re eager to share our knowledge about how to identify and preserve fresh cannabis. We provide guidance on how to store our products and educate our customers on what to look for when seeking out the freshest flower—information that fosters trust and ensures our customers feel confident in their purchases.
