"We are proud and passionate cultivators, scientists and activists. We believe in the power of cannabis to provide a better quality of life for individuals and communities alike..."
A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step and the first step should be introductions:
First up is Jared Miller @jaredismiller he is Culta's Sales Manager and from what I can tell an all around problem solver, good kind of guy to have around.
Jared's background is in the Wine and Spirits Family business based in Georgetown, he is also deeply connected to DC's promotions scene and has transitioned his career over to Medical Cannabis. Jared has a passion for veteran's PTSD and CTE in sports and how Medical Cannabis is able to help with both... I have been able to talk to Jared at length about his vision for not only Culta but the whole universe of modern medical cannabis and it's application across a wide array of topics... I can talk shop for hours and so can Jared.
Jared is surrounded by some of Culta's finest Adub and 🍋 Lemon Diesel in the flower room.
Next is Jay Bouton and he's the Head Cultivator in other words he runs the show at this facility and I observed him in action in multiple levels in the grow process from advising on trimming fan leaves and curing to identifying the dozens and dozens of strains, clones and mother's.
Jay is pictured with Culta's most popular strain... Dosidos! and Space Face 😜
We have both Jay and Jared posing in front of a sea of plants in the vegetative room.
Lastly we have John Enders and he's the inventory manager, I caught him in his office as we were coming through and he was nice enough to let me take him photo.

Next stop after the water and nutrient mix control room is the "Clone Room" and it's even labeled as such.... First thing you notice is the humidity goes way up... Like you're in a huge humidity dome..I guess you are.
I should mention since we're in the Clone Room where the little clones are just starting out getting super tender care and love from Jay @will_travel_4_art and John @jenders44 who were part of the original team brought in with vast knowledge of cannabis cultivation at this scale and quality.
Sweeties and Scooby Snacks begin the life cycle that will eventually find themselves in your bag with you going home with a big smile 😊
(Not pictured) Jay demonstrated how easy it is to control the LED lighting in this room with just a mere flick of the finger and everything can go dark real fast... Anyhow it shows a simple capability that makes dialing in a crop that much easier and better.
More organic life juice is brought in via piping from the water control room
A vast sea of clones... And the last image is the clone mother room, where the Maryland Champs live out their lives fussed over and treated like the royalty there are. 👑

In order to make awesome products you have to have an awesome system, and they do at Culta's ultra modern modular facility in Cambridge MD.
Everything starts with good water and good nutrient mix, which is why we're talking about this after Introductions.
They have an enormous reverse osmosis machine for perfect PH levels so the nutrients can do their job more effectively.
The piping takes the organic juice to other parts of the building where more MAGIC HAPPENS.
A perfect cycle and circle of life ☯️
