Lost Paradise’s Josh Chestnut says: “This is the highest grade herb we’ve ever produced. The fall colors and smells are divine. From the vibrant pink pistils of the Forbidden Muffin to the glittery snowflake trichomes on the Gazzurple, every strain is to be admired, smelled and appreciated while still living.”

Nikki from Swami Select says: “We are in the heart of harvest now and it is so beautiful! The late winter cold last season has everyone up here with smaller plants than usual, everything got started late, but all good—we grow for quality not quantity and always feel the smaller plants are better, more concentrated.”
