Eve Farms – San Francisco, CA

Eve Farms established its roots in San Francisco after transnational expansion from Australia in 2017, having acquired their facility from SPARC. “It’s good breeding ground because we’re using similar strains and grow methodologies under the same lighting in Australia, so we can compare across the Pacific and come up with the best practice,” says CEO Matt Cantelo. Eve Farm’s sterile indoor grow is building a legacy through their research and devotion to CBD cultivar. Data is tracked by Trellis software. Their exclusive and proprietary flower is EVE, a cannabis-derived CBD varietal from one of the most ancient cannabis plants. EVE mixes with mainstream terpene-rich strains yielding mouthwatering selection. High Times Cup 2019 awarded Eve Farms 1st Place Best CBD Flower with Forbidden Fruit x EVE, a perfect fit for daytime therapy.

The Culture

I was introduced to the harvest room during my tour where varietal Rozay Sherbet dried, freshly picked the same morning. Director of Cultivation, Jimi Heiler, shared Eve Farm’s intentions behind every practiced growing strategy.  In the humid vegetation room, cultivators smiled tending leaves. Aromatic flower rooms mirror libraries, bursting with vibrant green hues of pristine, sparkling cannabis.  Healthful plants are double stacked on vertical racks maximizing space. Eve Farms is experimenting with what type of music they believe plants like at different stages throughout life. I walked in on flowering cannabis dancing to Bob Marley. Internationality builds strong communication and a diverse team. “We use Trello and Slack, every room has its own channel, and the whole company learns,” says Cantelo.

Eve Farms produces pre-roll, flower and concentrate. Flowers come packed into artistic, informative jars. Forbidden Fruit x EVE has a red labeled jar with hazy pink and blue brush strokes. Reliably compliant, test results and dosage information are clear. Smoking Eve Farm’s cannabis moves me to be stabilized and inspired. Committed to quality and purity, they always practice non-toxic farming and never use harsh chemical pesticides. Their concentrates are 100 percent live resin available in dabs or with access to the Hanu Stone, one could find concentrate pods of the same quality. Passionate specialists have dialed in recommended low temperatures each pod should vaporize concentrate at for maximized experiences.
