Over 60 Humboldt farms have banded together to start True Humboldt, an agricultural co-op dedicated to growing quality, environmentally responsible cannabis.
The Humboldt Sun Growers Guild behind the True Humboldt brand is just a year old and has already seen a major milestone. On January 26th, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the county’s first-ever regulations on the commercial cultivation of medical marijuana. “Farmers will come out into the light and talk to regulatory agencies, get permits, and not be afraid to do it,” said Sam Shull, manager of the Humboldt Sun Growers Guild.
With the possibility of state legalization this November, Humboldt farmers are starting the conversation about how to work together to keep their cannabis culture local and sustainable.
“Being in a cooperative protects our culture and our way of life. I hope Humboldt can stay Humboldt, ‘cause it’s a way life we all enjoy.” -Sam Shull, Manager of Humboldt Sun Growers Guild”
