Recognizing that every harvest starts with a farmer and that the roots of cannabis culture run deep in Northern California’s Emerald Triangle, official Emerald Cup sponsor Boveda (www.bovedainc.com) has produced a must-see documentary titled Legacy: Southern Humboldt County, with the official trailer for the documentary dropping at the 18th Annual Emerald Cup Awards on May 14th at the Montalbán Theatre in Hollywood, CA. A like-minded mission through the ongoing Emerald Cup organization’s Small Farms Initiative, launched in December 2021 at the Harvest Ball.
Shining a light on the intrepid trailblazers that led California to legalization, the film connects the viewer to the farmers themselves to discuss the highs and lows of being responsible stewards of the land, of the plant, and of a culture-turned-industry that threatens to leave them behind.
With just one harvest a year, outdoor cannabis farmers in world-famous Humboldt County rely on a balance of generational know-how and proven products to ensure the crop that represents their farm and their brand for the next twelve months reaches the end-user expressing optimal aromas and flavors while delivering the desired effects.
Indoor, outdoor, and greenhouse cannabis cultivators operating personal or commercial grows have been utilizing Boveda 2-way humidity control packs – and now the flavor-saving Original Terpene Shield™ by Boveda – for 25 years and counting to keep their crop looking, smelling, and tasting as fresh as possible, with as much potency as possible, for as long as possible.
Canna Country & Huckleberry Farms
The 2022 Emerald Cup competition saw nearly 300 entries in the Flower category alone. This category was further divided into the subcategories of Sungrown, Indoor, Greenhouse, Mixed Light, Personal Use, and 3rd Party Certified, with over 20 expert Emerald Cup Judges assigned exclusively to the Flower category.
For the first time in the 18-year history of the Emerald Cup, all entries in the Flower category were pre-sorted by their dominant terpene profile using the Emerald Cup Cannabis Classification System powered by SC Labs and PhytoFacts®, a game-changing new way for everyone from the canna-curious to experienced budtenders, consumers, and even Emerald Cup Judges to talk about terpenes.
With a company motto of “Save the Terps!”, Boveda remains at the top of the game for proper cannabis storage.
Boveda, Inc. invented and patented The Original Terpene Shield™, which protects terpenes in dried cannabis in storage, transport, and packaging. Made with all-natural salts and purified water, the brand’s ready-to-use packets allow moisture to pass in and out as necessary through a semipermeable vapor-phase membrane. The purified water creates a powerful terpene shield that protects precious trichomes by preventing evaporation and preserving terpenes, cannabinoids, and THC. Boveda is the global leader in 2-way humidity control solutions. Innovative companies use Boveda to ensure moisture-sensitive products are maintained at their optimal moisture content, from premium cigars and cannabis to electronics, foods, musical instruments, and more.
