Sungrown Cannabis can easily be compared to wines grown in different terroirs in the same state. You can grow chardonnay all over the valley, however many Oregonians and wine sommeliers alike agree that some of the best chardonnay in Oregon comes from a specific area – and the same goes for Cannabis. For years the growing zone known for the best Cannabis was the Emerald Triangle, an area stretching down from the Valley of the Giants in the California Redwoods, out to the coast, and up into Grants Pass. Recently, the Triangle has moved north into Oregon and stretches up past Eugene, the city in which Entourage Extracts resides.
