What You’ll Learn About Smokable Flower
By July, most of the online retail distribution will have gone through the “sale” and liquidation of outdoor, stored flower as they are doing at this very moment. That leaves us in July in the “dry season,” where the availability might be some outdoor or “unnamed” flower for sale online at retail distros and really low prices on stored wholesale flower, thus, greenhouse.
During this webinar, we’ll cover:
- The current market for smokable flower
- Greenhouse smokable flower as the way forward
- Organic practices for growing smokable hemp flower
- A new certification which will add to the smokable hemp flower quiver of marketing tools
- Regenerative and organic certification
- Total THC flower as a further restricting retail and wholesale supply chain element going forward
- Terpene rich and market pleasing, vs. potency of cannabinoid with far less favorable terpene profilces
- Labor issues for outdoor manual harvest “boutique” smokable hemp flower
- And more!
