Organic Farming

Q: How Many Harvests Do Sun-Grown Farms Yield Each Year?

A:  Sun-grown cannabis farms will yield one harvest each year; in comparison to indoor growing facilities that may yield multiple (and considerably smaller) harvests in a given calendar year.

Like other agricultural products, due to the nature of growing cannabis on a farm in the Midwest and utilizing Earth’s natural elements, a yearly harvest is the norm.

A:  Yes! Sapphire Farms is a 60-acre organic cannabis farm that maintains an active Certified Kind certification. This prestigious certification program holds farmers to the highest organic standards in the cultivation industry.

Our cannabis plants at Sapphire Farms are grown in 100-gallon pots filled with living soil and are maintained with organic cultivation practices to enhance soil fertility, while dealing with any unwanted pests using approved organic methods.

Cannabis Information

Q: What Are the Terpene Levels of Sun-Grown Cannabis?

A:  Like THC, Terpene levels are vary depending on seed and/or clone genetics, cultivation methods, soil type/blends, the level of expertise of the cultivators, and many other factors.

With that being said, sun-grown cannabis will typically see higher level of terpenes within its profile (when grown right) due to the plants’ exposure to the full spectrum of sunlight — in comparison to indoor cannabis receiving its light from artificial lighting.

Q: Why Are Terpenes Important in Cannabis?

A:  In addition to determining the flavor, aroma, and oftentimes color of cannabis plants, terpenes play an integral role in affecting the body alongside THC when they interact with our endocannabinoid system.

While THC can determine the intensity of the “high,” terpenes provide the effects a person may feel such as relaxation, focus, creativity, etc. This is similar to a person feeling a mood boost when walking through the forest, or a person feeling relaxed after inhaling Lavender (i.e., Linalool) via aromatherapy.

The combination of these effects alongside THC (and CBD) entering the bloodstream is what is called the “Entourage Effect.”

Q: What are Terpenes?

A:  Terpenes are the naturally occurring aromatic compounds that are found in flowers, herbs, and other greenery — including cannabis plants. In cannabis specifically, terpenes are produced in the trichomes of female plants and there are more than 100 distinct terpenes.

Each cannabis plant typically has a few dominant terpenes that make up most of the terpene profile, with additional terpenes existing in smaller, trace amounts. It is the combination of specific terpenes that determine the aroma and flavor of each plant and strain — as well as affecting the body when consumed.

Q: What Are the THC Levels of Sun-Grown Cannabis?

A:  THC Levels in cannabis vary depending on seed and/or clone genetics, cultivation methods, soil type/blends, the level of expertise of the cultivators, and many other factors.

At Sapphire Farms, a majority of our Flower products are tested above 20% THC — with some of our top genetics testing above 30% THC.

Q: Is Sun-Grown Cannabis More Sustainable Than Indoor Cannabis?

A:  Yes! Sun-grown farms harness the power of the sun and the natural environment it’s grown in (i.e., the full spectrum of the Sun, the Earth beneath our soil pots, natural airflow, beneficial insects, rainwater, etc.).

As a result, the cultivation of sun-grown cannabis does not use high-energy artificial lighting, dehumidifiers, and other ancillary machinery — which allows Sapphire Farms to grow its cannabis using the most sustainable production methods possible.
