So many people have jumped into the regulated market in the decade-plus since legal states started coming out of the basement, dispensary customers have trouble separating the heat from the branded boof. 

When you see a new brand pop up on the shelf, how do you know what’s in the jar is going to be worth a chunk of your hard-earned paycheck? Thankfully for Snowtill’s emergence on the recreational market in March, their reputation for stellar flower and bulletproof genetic selection has simplified such a decision at the register. 

Founders Joseph Snow and Nate Landau grew up separately in Israel and didn’t meet until 2015, where they clicked at Landau’s Prop 215 grow in Trinity County. The seeds of Snowtill popped a year later, when they founded a small medical grow together, and transitioned that into consulting and research and development – biding their time until the right moment to start a facility licensed under Prop 64. 

Snow utilizes organic methodologies in the grow room at their new San Francisco facility, where he says he favors heavy decomp to cover crop for his living soil.

“Our core mission has always been to cultivate the best Cannabis we can,” Snow said. “Organic cultivation, we’ve found, is the best engine for that goal.”

We had the chance to check out a few strains on a recent tour, and walked away impressed by everything we saw – including a sparkly, gassy Carbon Fiber and a cheesy, funk-laden cut called the Gouda. 

It was hard to choose a favorite, but the Piescream loudly commanded attention. 

Bred by Mean Gene Mendocino, the Piescream comes from a cross of Wedding Pie x (Cherry Limeade f5 x Gelato 33). Like everyone, we can’t seem to get away from the Gelato crosses … and we’re not mad about it. The candy-sweet nugs shimmer with frost against a dark purple and green canvas, spiny with bright orange pistils and ripe with complex aromas of citrus, creamy rose petal and dank earthy funk.  

It’s a pillowy, heady hitter – and absolutely delicious. If you’re looking for a blend of flavor, aroma and head stash appeal, keep your eye out for this one.
