From Clone to Jar, Autumn Brands Offers a Fascinating Inside Look at the Lifecycle of a Quality, Pesticide Free Cannabis Plant

Overseeing the entire cultivation process, Autumn Brands’ Quality Control and Facilities Manager Justin Lough ensures a consistent, exceptional toke customers trust

LOS ANGELES, California – (March 26th, 2020): From clone to jar, 50% woman-owned Autumn Brands meticulously controls every part of the cannabis cultivation process, ensuring a consistently high quality, pesticide-free product from start to finish. Backed by decades of hard-won sustainable farming expertise, Autumn Brands stands out as a sixth-generation, family-run operation with a health-centered, holistic focus and refreshingly artisanal approach. Now, Quality Control and Facilities Manager Justin Lough offers an inside look at the lifecycle of an Autumn Brands cannabis plant. 

“Customers know they can trust Autumn Brands to provide consistent, powerfully potent cannabis strains,” explains Lough. “We take immense pride in the quality of our product, paying close attention to every detail of our clean grow process.” That process starts with a cutting from a mother plant which, after cloning, enters a vegetative phase.  Then, each plant is moved from the nursery to the greenhouse for flowering. Once fully flowered, they are hand-harvested and hang-dried for up to 12 days. This part is essential to remove excess moisture and activate the plant’s terpenes and THC content.  

After drying, the Autumn Brands team begins the bucking and trimming process, removing flowers from their stems by hand with extreme care. Next, plants enter the two-week curing phase, in which they are kept at a low temperature and medium humidity level to help preserve their unique potency and ensure a smooth, flavorful toke. Then, they are placed in eco-friendly glass jars and transported by Autumn Brands’ distribution partner, Yerba Buena Logistics, for lab testing to verify THC and CBD levels, along with other beneficial cannabinoids. Finally, after passing the rigorous testing process, plants are ready to be delivered to dispensaries and enjoyed by consumers. 

Every aspect of the Autumn Brands cultivation process requires strategic, hands-on precision and an uncompromising commitment to quality.
