Elevate Cannabis is raising expectations on middle-shelf cannabis. Their strains are full of terpenes that provide a great experience at a fair price. Their south Seattle facility blends right into the lowkey industrial district, but once inside, my senses started bursting as I experienced their cannabis in its various stages.
We toured Elevate’s facility at the perfect time to see weed plants full life cycle. Starting from babies no taller than a pen to plants in the vegetation that come up to your knees. Then growing into large blooming flowers oozing aromatic resin, cannabis takes an outrageous journey in just nine or so weeks.
Elevate’s plants have one of the best living situations in the entire cannabis industry. Tom Bout, our tour guide, explained that he and the team pay special attention to the plants living environment. They are a pesticide-free operation, using predator mites as one of their main forms of pest control.
We were lucky enough to try some of Elevate’s strains like Sizzurp, Crème Brûlée, and Sin Mint Cookies. Each one of these offered a unique experience. Sin Mint Cookies, in particular, was a hitter. It had a special sweet and spicy terpene profile that reminded me of Big Red gum.
