Three Finger Farm
Season 2 Episode 7
Growing Exposed is the only show that gives cannabis connoisseurs an unrestricted view into some of the most unique gardens in the country. Season two, episode three takes us to Three Finger Farm in Oregon to check out their huge variety of plants…101 streams to be exact! We will also go all the way to Barcelona to take you inside Spannibas, Europe’s biggest cannabis event.
We start in Roseburg, Oregon at Three Finger Farm. At this farm they grow on shared land, meaning a variety of farmers are using the land to grow a variety of plants, both indoors and out. Our tour guide Justin introduces us to Mark from Three Finger Farm and he explains to us where they got the name from (if you’re old school, you might already have guessed)! He shares that back in the day, it was a method used to weigh cannabis. Justin finds out why it’s so important for them to have such a big variety of strains and learns more about the breeding program at Three Finger Farm. Mark shares that he’s not looking to reproduce what has already been done, but rather, loves to take one particular point of a plant and introduce it to the genetics of his plants, be it a growth, terpene, pigmentation or taste profile.
After hearing about the genetics of the variety of plants grown at Three Finger Farm,it was time to get a closer look at the plants themselves in the veg room. Powered by Dual Fuel, the garden was overgrown and plants are very healthy and full. Mark shares he uses Green Planet nutrients to achieve maximum results and how these products allow the plants to dictate what they need. Justin shares the three most important things key to growing great cannabis…knowhow, good genetics and a great environment.
Before we head to the flower room, we take a break from Three Finger Farm for Teachings from the Garden Sage with David Robinson, to reveal the factors that maximize yield. Number one: genetics, number two: environment, number three: system and grower, number four: nutrients and additives. He breaks down why he places the factors in this order to maximize yield in any garden.
Next, we head overseas to Barcelona, to take you inside Spannibas, known to be the most prolific event in the cannabis ecosystem. People come from all over the world to attend this multi day event, often leaving attendees (including our tour guide) a bit dazed and confused. Get ready to go inside arguably the largest cannabis trade show in the world. Justin shares what happens there and explains the energy and vibe of the event while meeting some of the fans and sampling the goods.
Heading back to Oregon, its time to go inside the flower room at Three Finger Farm and Mark talks plant pigmentation and what products he uses to get his plants looking so beautiful. He goes into more detail about his 101 strains and why variety is key, and for him, worth the added risk.
Finally, we head to one of the biggest dispensaries in Oregon, Nectar, to see Three Finger Farm’s final product on store shelves. Our bud-tender shares why she’s not only happy to sell Three Finger Farm flower, but also to smoke it. Justin gets hands on with some big buds and checks out a few of the most popular choices.
