Farmers Make Great Fathers 6/14/19

To Celebrate Father’s Day We Wanted to Highlight Some of the Amazing Farmers Who Grow the Flower You Love!

We believe that the farms and partners we work with are helping to heal not only our community but our earth. So for Father’s Day we wanted to highlight some of the Farming Fathers that go above and beyond to help bring balance to not only the land they tend but also the families they love.

 

 

CRAIG | ALPENGLOW FARM

You may have met Craig and his wife Melanie during one of their Meet the Farmer visits at Solful. But did you know that in addition to growing amazing regeneratively farmed cannabis they are also raising two spectacular daughters? Imagine the experience of growing up on a farm and being able to identify the different bugs, companion plants, and everything that goes into creating a healthy sustainable eco-system. What a magical life that must be!

OF ALPENGLOW FLOWER

 

Radicle Herbs Farm Regenerative Cannabis

DANIEL | RADICLE HERBS FARM

Life thrives at Radicle Herbs Farm, and it’s been quite the year for Daniel + Blair! They were honored with the very coveted Regenerative Farm of the Year award and also welcomed their first little one to their farming family. Being thoughtful about what you take from the earth, and knowing that to keep balance you always must give back, are amazing life lessons to teach a child. We’re excited to see a little one grow up with such a thoughtful appreciation of the world.

AWARD WINNING CANNABIS

 

Moon Gazer Farm Cannabis

JOSH | MOON GAZER FARM

Nature vs. nurture is something that’s long been debated. But what if you found a place that was amazing at both? Moon Gazer Farm grows every cannabis plant from seed ensuring that the natural genetics are perfect, but Josh + Sandra don’t stop there. They lovingly and passionately care for each plant and animal on their farm so much that the love radiates from their garden. So it’s no wonder that when Josh became a dad this year he not only welcomed one baby but two because at Moon Gazer Farm there’s a lot of love to go around!

Moon Gazer Farm Cannabis

JACOB | FLOWER DAZE FARM

A self-proclaimed band of misfits, Jacob + Carla of Flower Daze Farm have recently expanded their brood. Welcoming a second child into their artistic family Jacob has lots of fatherly traits to hand down. His meticulous attention to detail shines through in his thoughtfully grown, extremely small batch, cannabis. It’s no wonder that Jacob values every detail because as a classically trained musician that attention has been distilled from a young age. Whether teaching his children about classical music, or regenerative farming, we’re certain parenting in a land of wonder is an amazing experience.

Granola’s long been a snack associated with outdoor activities, so be sure to add a pack of Atlas Granola Bites to your Mother’s Day picnic. While the mom favorite seems to be Nimbus, what mom doesn’t love Dark Chocolate with Pecans and Hazelnuts, Atlas Granola Bites also come in three additional delicious flavors.

Want to explore all the flavors?

  • Nimbus – Dark Chocolate with Pecans and Hazelnuts

Sometimes being a mom is like running a 5k race over and over again (hello Groundhog Day) so why not encourage her to relax, because you know she deserves it. From cannabis-infused Epsom salts to specially formulated sublinguals that promote rest and relaxation, we think the mom in your life will appreciate a little push towards a break.

Moms love dosist. We can honestly almost leave it at that.

Red Rosebud – Moon Gazer Farm

Suprise Moon Gazer Farm is growing more than just cannabis right now! With two babies on the way, we couldn’t not highlight the amazing feminine touch that this mom-to-be farmer gives to each of her plants.

Red Rosebud is particularly a special strain for Sandra and Josh not only because they’ve nurtured it from seed, but because it leaves you feeling euphoric and balanced which they know is a feeling moms need. Plus, it’s low potency!

 

Juniper Pre Rolls Sonoma County Cannabis

Assorted Pre-Rolls – Juniper

We have two moms on the Solful team, and both Athena and Tess can’t stop raving about Juniper pre-rolls. If you have a mom who’s comfortable with psychoactivity take it from our resident moms, there’s not a Juniper pre-roll that won’t take the edge off.

We’re also certain that there’s not a mom out there who won’t swoon over their beautiful packaging.

The History of 420 4/16/19

The History of 420: How a group of teens from Marin County started an international holiday which led to a collaboration with one of our favorite brands, Chemistry.

Each year on April 20 people around the world celebrate the gift of cannabis. The 4/20 holiday, which has become synonymous with lighting up a joint, has been taking place for more than 40 years, but the origins of the celebration have mostly remained mysterious. Where did the term “420” come from?

 

Many people wonder about the history of 420. Some people mention a Bob Dylan song, while others believe it’s a police code indicating someone in possession of cannabis. However, the true story behind 4/20 starts out much like many epic storylines of the last century. A group of friends decides to set out an awesome adventure to find a hidden treasure.

 

History of 420 Meet The Waldos

The Waldos – Mark Gravich, Jeff Noel, Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, and Larry Schwartz, also known as the Waldos,
coined a term while attending high school in San Rafael, Cali. that would later become the international code of
cannabis. (Photo provided by Chemistry)

 

That group of Marin County friends dubbed themselves “the Waldos” and in 1971 they made it their mission to find an abandoned pot grow allegedly located somewhere up the coast from San Francisco. The group of high school buddies, Mark Gravich, Jeff Noel, Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, and Larry Schwartz, were known as pranksters and goof-offs in their hometown of San Rafael, California.

 

“We use to sit on campus and do impressions of people walking by,” Waldo Dave (Reddix) said. The hippies would often hang out together sitting on a wall outside their school, thus becoming “the Waldos.”

 

A map was given to Waldo Steve (Capper) by a friend whose brother was in the U.S. Coast Guard. The map allegedly led to a crop of abandoned cannabis plants near the Point Reyes Peninsula Coast Guard station.

 

An After-School Adventure

After school the Waldos would meet at 4:20 p.m. near a statue out front of their San Rafael High School, to get high and go on a safari to find the cannabis plot. Unfortunately, after weeks of searching, the weed grow was never found, but the 4/20 code became slang between the Waldos for “let’s go smoke some weed.”

 

420 Statue a big part of The History of 420

420 Statue – In 1971 the Waldos would meet in front of this statue of chemist
Louis Pasteur at San Rafael High School at 4:20 p.m. to hash out their plan
and get high together.  
(Copyright 2019 Waldos LLC all rights reserved)

 

The 4/20 code got out to the masses through a  connection like no other. It came in the form of an influential rock band with a devoted fan base, the Grateful Dead. Waldo Dave (Reddix) had an older brother who was friends with Phil Lesh, Grateful Dead’s bassist. In the 1970s, Reddix’s brother managed Lesh’s side bands and offered Reddix a chance to work the shows.

 

During this time, Reddix shared the slang with other roadies, band members and Grateful Dead fans known as Deadheads. The 4/20 code spread like seeds across the country during the 1970s and ‘80s. As time moved on into the 1990s, theories began to swirl about where the 4/20 code came from.

 

The True History of 420

After hearing a wild assortment of theories, the Waldos decided it was time to dismiss the rumors and other false claims. A 1997 interview with the Waldos featured in High Times magazine officially set the record straight on where 4/20 originated and boosted the Waldos story even further into cannabis culture. The article was the first ever published about the group. It wasn’t until that year that the Waldos started seeing that the code had reached mainstream American youth.  

 

“We started seeing it on signs and painted on benches,” Reddix said.

 

Today “420” is a household word. There are countless celebrations, big and small, all over the globe on April 20, as well as products and websites with 4/20 references. A Google search leads to 1.9 billion results and it all began with five friends sitting on a wall in San Rafael.

 

Not too much has changed between the group of friends in 40 years. Waldo Steve (Capper) said the Waldos are still always up for an adventure.

 

“Everywhere we go it’s still the same fun vibe,” he said. “It’s our nature.”

 

They even have their own website documenting their adventures and sharing their story, visit it here. 

 

A Special 420 Collaboration with Chemistry

 

The Waldos consider themselves, “happy stoned ambassadors” and in that spirit, they have collaborated with Chemistry, an Oakland-based cannabis extract company, for a second year to unleash a new vape cartridge.

 

The Waldos said this year’s cartridge is old school, based on some of the strongest weed found in the 1970s, Panama Red.

 

Trevar Mazza, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Chemistry, said the company hunted down the old-school classic and it’s unlike anything they’ve created before.

 

“The micro batch of whole flower we processed was grown by Babylon Farms up in Mendocino. They sourced the seeds from a company that specializes in land race and heritage strains,” Mazza said. “It has a refreshingly crisp sweetness with a bit of pine on the backend, pretty uplifting on the front end with a pleasant tingling sensation around the third eye. It’s a bit of a creeper though, surprisingly strong given the lower THC percentage.”

 

The 1971 Panama Red vape is extremely unique thanks to that 1:1 balanced CBD to THC ratio. You can find the limited 1971 Panama Red cartridge from Chemistry at Solful, as a special release on 4/20!

 

Visit Solful on 4/20 for your chance to take home one of the limited release Waldo cartridges, plus one of the 420 Gift Bags filled with some of your favorite cannabis products! Click here for a full list of Solful’s 420 activities.

Sebastopol Flood Sonoma County

Sonoma County Flood Update 3/3/19

To Our Community and Solful Family,

Many of you have called and emailed to check in on us in following the news of the flooding in Sonoma County, and for that, we are beyond grateful. While this affects everyone in our Solful family, Solful’s retail store was unaffected by the flood. We have been able to remain open and our amazing team has continued to help the community by talking and connecting with people in the store.

We are incredibly heartbroken that Sonoma County is experiencing another natural disaster. Our General Manager calls Guerneville home and our thoughts go out to her and everyone who has been displaced by this.

We feel for the local businesses who have been affected. Like us, they have poured their heart and soul into what they do. We understand what it feels like to feel responsible for our team and their families and can only imagine that the unknown of what’s to come next must feel insurmountable.

But we are part of a strong, resilient community, and we are going to help each other. We hope every person who is displaced, and business whose doors are closed knows that they are not alone.

For those of you who want to help, it’s too soon to know exactly when we can roll up our sleeves, but we plan on being involved and promise to let you know when and how you can help too!

But for now, we simply need you to continue to come to Sebastopol to support the businesses on Main Street, in Downtown, The Barlow and throughout every community in Sonoma County that has been affected by this. And most importantly, let people know where you are, that these businesses are open, and tell them to come too! Help us keep our community going so that when these amazing businesses open back up, they reopen to a thriving Sebastopol.

And no matter how long it takes for these communities and businesses to get back on their feet, the minute they do… GO

Go to The Barlow, go to Monte Rio, go to Guerneville, go out of your way to support every business that has had to close their doors because of the flood. That’s how we can all help them recover.

Sonoma County is a wonderful place to be, West County is an amazing community to be a part of and we feel so good about calling Sebastopol home. We invite you to get to know our neighbors and to show them the same amazing support you have shown us.

The Solful community is incredible and we couldn’t feel more fortunate to have such overwhelming support.

Talking Terpenes – What Are Terpenes? 10/10/18

What are terpenes and why should you consider them when shopping for cannabis?

You may be drawn to high THC or it might be that you choose cannabis flower based on the aromas. But what are terpenes and why should you be choosing cannabis based on them? You’ll have to keep reading to find out…

 

Our friend Mary Jane can tell you a lot about herself, but you will have to listen intently, with your nose. She speaks not with words but with Terpenes! – Travis Shrum

 

What are cannabis terpenes

 

My name is Travis. I’m Health + Happiness Consultant at Solful, Sonoma County’s premier cannabis dispensary, and I love terpenes. So what are terpenes and why do we think they’re so amazing? Terpenes are bio-active aromatic molecules found in cannabis and all over nature. Terpenes are produced in trichomes, the sticky glandular stalks that coat flowers. These sticky trichomes are responsible for the “frosty” appearance found on cannabis buds. Trichomes also contain cannabinoids like THC and CBD.

 

Terpenes are the aromatherapy of cannabis!

Some cannabis strains make you feel energized and creative while other types make you sleepy and tranquil. Have you ever wondered why that is? Terpenes! Put simply, since each terpene is different each one will have a different effect on your body. But what makes terpenes elicit these different responses from your body? Think about your most recent visit to Solful and that exciting moment when a Health + Happiness Consultant, maybe it was even me, opened a flower jar for you. The flower released its unique profile of terpenes into the air which was analyzed by your nose and as a result, you felt a sensation.

 

Take the terpene linalool, if you smell a strain high in linalool it may be reminiscent of lavender which can have a calming effect… similar to lavender essential oil. Terpenes are the aromatherapy of cannabis, isn’t that fascinating?!

Learning this nuanced chemical language can be challenging, but just like someone studying to become a sommelier or learning to pick out toasted oak and dark fruit flavors in wine, it simply takes practice. Don’t worry, because the quizzes are open book. You just have to find a cannabis dispensary that focuses on terpenes, like Solful. At Solful we provide profiles showing the levels of the most abundant terpenes found in specific cannabis strains. And if you want to know more, just ask!

 

Why are terpenes important?

Cannabis uses these terpenes as an advantage in nature to ward off predators and attract pollinators. Cannabis produces over a hundred varieties of terpenes. For us humans, these molecules provide a beneficial biological attraction to plants. Go back to the caveman days, and this biological attraction naturally led us to plants that were safe to consume and steered us away from those that weren’t. 

Each terpene provides unique aromas and physiological effects. The synergistic combination of terpenes and cannabinoids is credited with the many therapeutic properties in cannabis. This synergistic combination is known as “The Entourage Effect”.

 

What is the “Entourage Effect”?

You can learn about the “Entourage Effect” in the Solful Field Guide! Our friends at Kiva Confections also did a great job of breaking down the “Entourage Effect” so we’ll let them explain it.

 

Cannabis contains several hundred compounds, including dozens of minor cannabinoids, various flavanoids, and terpenes. While many of these compounds have specific healing attributes, it is believed that when combined the theraputic impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its single-molecule parts.

 

Can’t wait to smell terpenes?

Some of the most common terpenes found in cannabis are likely hanging out in your kitchen or garden.

Cannabis Terpenes Limonene

Zest a lemon and you will quickly be greeted by limonene, a terpene known for its stress-relieving properties. Many people find that limonene also has mood-enhancing benefits. Limonene is often found in uplifting cannabis varieties.

Cut open a ripe Mango and take in the earthy sweet fruit containing the terpene myrcene. This terpene is credited with the notorious couch-lock effect experienced with certain types of cannabis.

 

TRAVIS’ TERPENE TIP:  If you buy high THC cannabis you’ll love myrcene.  It’s believed that myrcene enhances our ability to take in THC allowing us to reach higher levels of elevation without higher levels of THC! As a result if you’re looking to get “high” you should be looking for cannabis strains high in myrcene.

 

Cannabis Terpenes Beta Caryophyllene

Crack some black pepper to release another fascinating terpene, beta-caryophyllene. It has been discovered that beta-caryophyllene seems to interact with the endocannabinoid system on its own, so it shows great promise as an anti-inflammatory agent and a dampener of anxiety.

 

Want more terpenes?

Let’s keep talking! Introducing, Talking Terpenes, a monthly installment all about the world of terpenes. Each month I will be highlighting a specific terpene and teaching you all about its tastes and effects. I’ll be sharing recipes, shaking up “cocktails”, and filling your mind with cannabis knowledge. And together we will constantly be answering “what are terpenes” because the next time you’re browsing the flower wall, I want you to be talking terpenes. 

I’m Travis… and I love terpenes!

Treatwell CEO Incident 6/25/18

Regarding our Relationship with TreatWell

 

Solful was founded with a particular set of values rooted in our mission of “Cultivating Health and Happiness in Our Community”, and it is incredibly important that the brands we carry align with our values. As such we have decided to halt all future orders of TreatWell in wake of their CEO’s recent actions.

 

We also want to take a moment to explain why we have chosen to sell through TreatWell’s products rather than to have them destroyed. While we are incredibly disappointed and disheartened by her actions, we have many customers that rely on TreatWell. We are currently working incredibly hard to find a replacement so that our customers do not go without their medicine. Until that replacement is secured our existing inventory will remain on the shelf, and we will be donating proceeds from TreatWell products to a non-profit.

 

We are committed to educating and empowering our community and will continue to have the highest standards when choosing the products we put on our shelves from both a quality and values perspective.

 

If you have any questions regarding our decision to halt ordering TreatWell products please feel free to reach out to our team directly – community@solful.com.

 

Sincerely,

 

Eli Melrod, CEO
