Humboldt has a long and rich history of cultivating cannabis. During the late ’60s, many people started to migrate north from San Francisco into the deep untouched landscape of the Pacific Northwest. These “free-spirited hippies” seeking an alternative and more sustainable means of existence created a “Back to the Land” movement. Living with fewer amenities, minimal material possessions and very distant from the populous California, they cultivated an ideology that would eventually transform the entire region.
Filled with a deeper connection to the Earth, this seclusion provided a safe and explorative space for many to participate in the evolution of modern cannabis. Renown for its quality during more than 40 years, the region has pushed the boundaries of what is possible from both cultivation and regulation for the state and nationwide. Humboldt County has become the place with the highest concentration of progressive organic gardening techniques carried out by some of the best growers and elite genetics in the world today.
