Heading south out of Grants Pass on Highway 238 and turning onto the main drag through Williams, Oregon, the big Siskiyou sign can be seen from the road. For years now, Cedar has produced some of the highest-grade THC flowers on the Oregon market – until the Farm Bill was passed, giving the owner of Siskiyou Sungrown the ability to grow hemp for all! Now the company is working alongside Natural Roots to create cartridges.
These are new and affordable cartridges that are designed to provide a discreet and easy-to-use solution for consuming various medications at a moment’s notice. They’re very uncomplicated to consume and can be recharged, unlike other forms of extract consumption. Having had the opportunity to try several of the new cartridges featuring varying flavors of gas and fruits, we can diagnose these as a hit.
Sungrown versus indoor has always been a point of contention among growers. The argument is often that synthesized fertilizers will never compare to what comes directly and organically from the ground. However, we now know these to be opinions in a sea of beliefs. Cannabis knows no difference, and while the resin head morphology will be different when grown outside (having to put up with harsher conditions than that of an indoor plant), this does not make any one form definitively superior.
The difference in THC and CBD effect is easily noticeable, but a couple of these new cartridges are recognizably higher in a newly popular cannabinoid called cannabichromene or CBC. According to an article written by Cresco Labs (a company currently operating out of 10 states), CBC “has been shown to encourage the human brain to grow by increasing the viability of developing brain cells in a process known as neurogenesis.” With CBG also present in these products (a cannabinoid known to strengthen the function of anandamide), the combination offers neurotransmission for enhanced pleasure and increased motivation. Alongside THC, these cannabinoids form a bond to the CB1 and CB2 receptors, helping to regulate both appetite and sleep. In short, Siskiyou Sungrown’s new cartridges offer a well-balanced and portable product for the everyday consumer.
