Buds Best: From The Soil


This month the Buds Best series is featuring From The Soil Farms — premium pesticide-free cannabis that you’ve got to try. From The Soil Farms (FTS) is a family affair, run by brothers AJ and Andy Parent in nearby Elma, Wash. There you can find 10,000-square-foot Nexus glass houses filled with plants at all stages, just waiting to be picked at the peak of perfection. Learn more about products from FTS and check out our From the Soil suggestions.

All in the Family

From The Soil Farms started when Washington passed recreational i-502. The Parent family already had a medical dispensary in California, but Washington’s new laws were clearer and more appealing for cultivators. AJ and Andy’s dad, Artie, jumped at the chance, and soon the three of them had a farm in Elma. The farm grows for From The Soil, but they’ve also got a sister brand, Magic Time Farms. While the brothers tend to the growing operation, dad handles the marketing and packaging. He’s a pro, having owned the major print company that handles both Coachella and Rockstar Energy drinks.

Better Roots, Better Fruit

AJ and Andy take the best care of their plants alongside their 80-plus staff. The glass houses protect the plants from the rainy skies of the Pacific Northwest, while allowing them to absorb as much of the sun’s light as possible. On those cloudier Washington days, electric lights keep the plants happy.

The ambient temperature, humidity and light are all carefully controlled, but the Parents know the secret to growing healthy plants: the soil. All plants start below the ground, and get nourishment from the earth as much as they get energy from the sun. That’s why From The Soil Farms nurtures their “living soil,” where a balanced biome of living organisms like bacteria and worms live in harmony with the plants. Instead of chemicals, FTS fertilizes their plants with bat guano, worm castings and sea kelp. They also use beneficial bugs to protect their plants, so you can enjoy clean pesticide-free cannabis.
