If you love Dad Grass Joints, we think you're going to be pretty jazzed about Dad Grass Flower. You get the same premium CBD-rich flower that we put in our joints, but with the freedom to roll it yourself or pack it into a bowl.
Each tin comes filled to the brim with the choicest nugs of Organic CBD hemp responsibly grown small batches under the sun, right here in the USA. Slow dried. Hand trimmed. Carefully cured. And thoroughly inspected. Crafted from seed to smoke the old fashion way.
If you didn't go to Weed University, or you're new to smokable CBD hemp in general, don't stress! We know this world can be a bit confusing sometimes. That's why we've broken down some of the words we use into a handy little glossary below.
Flower: Weed, bud, ganja, pot, dope, mary jane...every generation has its own slang. But what we are all talking about when we talk about grass is the flower of the cannabis plant. The beautiful, sticky and sweet-smelling fruit that, when consumed properly, is sure to put a smile on our face. A dirty little secret of our industry is that some cats mix other, less desirable parts of the plant into their joints because it saves money. Not us. We only use flower, and only the best ones we can get our hands on.
Choice Nugs: When we get a new batch of flower from the farm, we carefully remove any trim, shake, seeds or stems and then separate it into two delicious-smelling piles. One has all the smalls; the more modestly-sized buds that we grind up and roll into our joints. The other has the bigs; the larger buds that usually cluster at the top of the plant (true heads call this the “cola”). They’re the primos of the pot, the fattest flowers with the highest concentrations of the cannabinoids and terpenes you love so much. And from this pile, we make an even smaller pile with only the best-looking and best-smelling bigs. These are the chosen ones that we weigh, one by one, and place oh-so-delicately into your tin.
CBD: You’ve probably been hearing a lot about CBD lately. It’s THC’s long-lost sibling, recently rediscovered and now celebrated by red-eye-jedis and wellness gurus alike. CBD (Cannabidiol) is the most commonly known non-psychoactive cannabinoid contained in hemp and marijuana plants. That means that, unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD doesn’t get you high. Instead, it is known to have a load of other really far-out effects. Most people say it helps them relax and take the edge off. Others say it can reduce inflammation, nausea, anxiety and even help combat cancer. We think it’s the key ingredient in a positively perfect recipe for people that want to alter their mood but not their mind.
Hemp: Since ancient times (and we aren’t just talking about the 60’s, man), hemp has been used for everything from clothing and paper to food products and medicine. Although our Founding Fathers grew it for years, the US government banned hemp and its close relative, marijuana, in 1937. Thankfully, the recently-passed 2018 Farm Bill made hemp completely federally legal again. What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana? We know it’s confusing, especially with all the buzz around legal weed these days. The first thing to know is that hemp and marijuana are both technically cannabis. Marijuana, the mind-altering variety, contains more than .3% THC. Hemp, on the other hand, contains less than .3% THC. The flower we use for our pre rolled joints comes from high quality hemp that is sun grown by experienced farmers in much the way marijuana is grown. It looks, smells and tastes like the finest buds you would pick up at your local dispensary but is legal to produce, sell, buy and toke in all 50 states. If that doesn’t get you jazzed up, this certainly will: When grown responsibly and with enough TLC, hemp can have way higher concentrations of CBD than marijuana which, for the most part, has been genetically engineered to maximize THC. That means you get more of the good stuff with less of the bad.
Small Batch: We’ve got a thing for the little guys, cuz we’re one of them! We only work with craft farmers that sustainably produce hemp in small batches. They grow, harvest and trim by hand with the same level of care a home gardener would use for their family’s harvest.
Good Genes: We tirelessly scoured the country for the most perfect strain of CBD hemp, so you didn’t have to! The specimen we selected is a timeless classic. An everyday hero. It’s extra high in CBD, low in THC (below .3%) and rich with terpenes. It looks good, tastes delicious, smokes smooth and is as friendly to the environment as it is to your body and mind.
Sun Grown: Sure, you can grow cannabis in a warehouse off the highway. But there’s something not-quite-right about fake lights, mysterious chemicals and a terroir that’s thinner than the organic hemp paper we roll our joints with. We keep things 100% natural, like the good ol’ days. When all you needed to power your flower was some living soil, local water and plenty of natural sunlight.
Responsibly Grown: We may be a laid back bunch. And we definitely dig the good times. But like your dad (and any good dad) we never let our responsibilities slide. When it comes to the hemp we use in our joints, our standards extend beyond Organic Certification. We only work with craft farmers that sustainably produce hemp in small batches. They harvest and trim by hand with the same level of care a home gardener would use for their family’s harvest. We also pay all of our workers a fair wage and produce everything right here in the USA. It may not be the easiest way, but it’s the Dad Grass way.
Slow Dried: “Low and slow” is our motto when it comes to drying a harvest (and, come to think of it, most of the good things in life). We don’t like to rush things. And don’t even try messing with the thermostat! We keep the temperature low, the humidity stable, and the lighting mellow so that our ladies can take their pretty little time. It may take several days to get that moisture content just right, sometimes even more, but as our parents’ always told us, patience and precision pays off.
Carefully Cured: Curing weed is like aging a good wine. A good cure brings out those subtle smells and flavors (can you detect that hint of lavender?). It also preserves the flower and all of its magical properties, the all-natural way. Some people even say that carefully-cured flower is the key to a smooth smoke and a perfectly mellow buzz.
Hand Trimmed: Trimming is a craft, dare we say an art form. One that can be imitated by machines, but never replicated. By carefully trimming each bud by hand, we make sure to get rid of those toke-harshing fan leaf leaves so that all you’re smoking is the finely manicured, super tasty, trichome-covered flower.
Thoroughly Inspected: From the spring morning when the seed goes into the ground to the bittersweet moment when each tin is packed and shipped, we’ve got our eyes on our grass. We inspect every plant, every nug, every trichome--every step of the way. But we don’t expect you to just take our word for it. That’s why we go the extra mile by sending our flower to the same independent third-party labs that test the marijuana you find in dispensaries. We always pass with flying colors.
