This Golden Tarp Awards spotlight focuses on Patrick King, The Soil King and his approach to cannabis cultivation and where he wants the industry to go in the new market. Patrick discusses his desire to bring focus on the ‘good players’ of the industry that champion clean cultivation practices and clean cannabis for the consumer using sun grown and greenhouse processes. Patrick’s wish is to push the industry towards recognizing quality cannabis that is safe for the consumer and doing so by mutual education between regulators, cultivators and the community.
Meet The Breeders
The Ganjier’s Golden Tarp Awards highlights the critical but lesser discussed role of the breeder in the cannabis industry. These people represent the currently large diversity of cannabis genetics that exist in the present day market and with the corporatization of cannabis this is at risk. The crux of the issue is cannabis is just being studied legally for the first time since prohibition began and new uses and therapies are just beginning to be discovered. These genetics, some old and some new, hold potentially marketable and in-demand characteristics for current and future cannabis consumer markets.
The Golden Tarp Awards wants to shine the light a few of the California breeders that represent and hold some of the most unique and sought after genetics today. Each an artisan in their own right and each representing the best genetics of their region.
