May is here and with it our first glimpse of sunshine after a winter and spring that can only be described as wet. Not fun, but that’s what Cannabis and good coffee are for. And of course, a fresh Leaf. This is a really exciting issue packed full of great content that we are excited to share with you.

Our cover this month features a gorgeous plant from High Latitude Farms, a farm that is changing the perceptions of how Cannabis is grown. This aquaponic facility not only produces super high quality Cannabis products, it supports 4,000 rainbow trout in a living ecosystem! Check out our story written by our Oregon Director Nate Williams, who took a trip out to the farm last month.

Our issue also features Bull Run Craft Cannabis, the most exciting farm in Boring, Oregon. Writer Simone Fischer went out and wrote a great piece that covers the motivation and inspiration for this education and quality focused farm. Simone interviewed Jesce Horton of the Minority Cannabis Business Association, and wrote a patient profile that was a true 180-degree life change you’ll have to read to believe.

This issue also features a tasty review roundup from Will Ferguson, two dispensaries definitely worth checking out, and a new behind the strain from Dr. Scanderson. You’ll also enjoy a new budtender profile, a fresh grow technique, news and a new book to read, and our always tasty recipes from Laurie and Bruce Wolf.

As always, I am exceptionally proud to be able to share all this great content, and want to thank our team, the industry and especially our readers for helping us continue our mission of sharing the truth about Cannabis. What an amazing plant this is, and an amazing time we live in!
