Frosted Flavors’ owner and head grower Xavier Moss-Davis lives the hustle.
The Sacramento-born-and-bred legacy grower took 10 years of traditional market expertise and built his equity recreational market brand from the ground up – leveling up with each iteration of his operation as he works to earn status for the flower brand while simultaneously building out a street fashion and lifestyle label.
His non-stop grind has been working. The Frosted Flavors lineup features a tight group of fire cultivars, leaning toward the fruit and gas side of the spectrum.
For the Tannins and Terpenes issue, we decided to showcase the Grapes ‘n’ Grams – the Frosted Flavors cut of Garanimals bred by Cannarado. It’s a cross of Grape Pie (Cherry Pie x Grape Stomper) and Animal Cookies (GSC x Fire OG Bx3), which Moss-Davis’ team renamed in part due to trademark issues with the former name’s connection to the childrens’ clothing company of the same name.
The rebrand is apt: These chunky, dense, dark green, glittering nugs emit a strong aroma of jammy fruit and graham crackers when you break off a crumb and rub it between your hands. The buds break up and roll easy, drawing smoothly and evenly, stacking white ash. The effect seeps in with a strong body relaxation – perfect for putting on a movie at the end of a long day.
We look forward to seeing where Moss-Davis and the Frosted Flavors crew ends up. For the time being, they’ll be hand-watering their plants, popping new seeds, and bringing their love for Cannabis and its culture to the California market.
