In 2014 the flagship facility was custom designed and built for the cultivation of Artizen Cannabis products. Since the company started, there are several facilities in Washington State that grow and produce the beautiful buds we see on the shelves. As a brand, Artizen makes sure to work with packaging companies that share their values or rigorous standards to ensure everyone’s Artizen experience lives up to their high standards.
What Are Artizen’s Growing Practices?
Artizen Cannabis uses coco-coir as the medium for growing their plants. Coco-coir is harvested from the husks of coconuts and creates a blank slate for the cultivation of cannabis plants. Growers can create the perfect growing environment by introducing nutrients to the coco-coir, which gives the plants the opportunity to grow and produce to their full potential. Artizen uses organic products in the growing of their plants but because the Washington State Department of Agriculture oversees the production of cannabis and does not recognize coco-coir as a primary growing medium, Artizen cannot be approved as “Certified Organic” even with their organic growing practices and organic products used. Artizen takes excellent care of every single crop grown on-site. From planting to packaging, the company believes in the importance of handling with care. All buds are hand-trimmed and packaged fresh by hand. Artizen uses Safer Spray, an organic soap salt from plant materials, for pest control.
What Does Pesticide-Free Mean?
The Food and Drug Administration classifies pesticide-free as a product having no pesticide residue at the time of consumption. The word “pesticide” can be scary but any substance or mixture of substances intended to destroy, repel, or prevent pests is considered a pesticide. This includes a homemade mixture of essential oils that is sprayed onto a plant to prevent pests. It is important to educate yourself on the growing practices and the “pesticides” used during the cultivation process.
What types of strains are available from Artizen?
Artizen Cannabis offers a variety of strains that come in a variety of product offerings. Alkaloid Cannabis carries Artizen flower in sizes ranging from 1g to an ounce. We also have prerolls and their Sugar Wax concentrates. Artizen has indica, sativa, and hybrid strains in their product lines. Each strain will have different effects, with the sativa types reducing anxiety and igniting a person’s creative energies. Indica strains will provide full-body relaxation. Types from Artizen include Purple Sherbet, Rozay Punch, Miracle Alien Cookies, Blue Dream, Galactic Glue, and many others.
Dutchberry – Sativa Dominant Hybrid. DJ Short Blueberry x Dutch Treat. Sweet, berry flavor and aroma.
Galactic Glue – Hybrid. GG#4 x Gobstopper. Sour, pine aroma and flavor profile.
Grape Ape – Indica. Mendocino Purps x Skunk x Afghani. Berry, sweet taste and aroma.
Artizen has high ratings from Alkaloid Cannabis Company customers. Strains like Wedding Cake have been celebrated for their potency and mood-boosting effects. Dutchberry was an award winner of the 2016 Dope Cup and will provide a very uplifting feeling after use. Grape Ape has a more robust flavor profile than Dutchberry, with dank and dark buds. The weed offers a calming sensation and smells like grape, plum, and black currant. The quality is evident in all cannabis products appearing under the Artizen brand.
