Heavy deliberation down in Santa Rosa, CA at High Times’ NorCal Cannabis Cup reigns Garrison Lane’s “40 Elephants” strain as the best hybrid flower. RMR had the opportunity to head down from Seattle to scope the proceedings of the competition for the first time. Here’s a closer glance at Garrison Lane and the extra effort they put in to grab the gold.
The winning strain, “40 Elephants,” according to Garrison Lane’s Instagram, is a bag seed they got from a pound of Gelato. Rolling with the punches, and cultivating cannabis in the L.A. area for over 20 years, has brought them a fine looking flower. The potency of the plant is apparent from the photo below, boasting visible juicy trichomes.
What sets Garrison Lane apart aside from their potent product, is the story that goes along with each. These guys definitely love Peaky Blinders. “The Forty Elephants” were a 19th century all-female London crime syndicate. This gang was notable for its longevity and skill in avoiding police detection. They existed for many years and was particularly active between the two world wars. The obvious metaphor pertaining to cannabis and its own longevity and skill in thriving in the shadows against police is apparent in the name choice.
These folks put not only the extra effort into their prized hybrid flower, but their own quirky story behind each strain to add intrigue. That’s a branding strategy underutilized largely in the strain-name-game. Some of their other famously named strains include Juicy J, Lil Wayne, and their premier strain—Billy Kimber OG (of similar “40 Elephants” lore).
The quality product from Garrison Lane can be found throughout Southern California,
across Los Angeles and Orange County. Utilizing the best natural materials and pesticide-free facilities, consider looking into picking up one of their award-winning strains at your nearest SoCal location.
