A Inside Look Into Carpinteria Valley’s Glass House Farms

Grown in Carpinteria Valley, famed for its orchid and daisy greenhouses, earth-friendly Glass House Farms takes the high road in all that it does, cultivating its flowers in sparkling clean greenhouses using innovative environmental controls that maximize the coastal sun’s benefit, eliminate harsh elements and bugs that tamper with quality, minimize waste, and maximize water retention with state-of-the-art recapture systems. Each flower is trimmed and packaged with exceeding care to deliver a consistently premium craft cannabis product.

Offering flower and pre-rolls, Glass House Farms grows 25 pesticide-free cannabis cultivars, featuring

  • Grand Daddy Purple: This famous deep purple California indica inherits a complex grape and berry aroma from its Purple Urkle parent, while Big Bud passes on its oversized, compact bud structure.
  • Dream Walker: Stimulating genetics blend of Afghan Skunk, Ghost OG, and Chemdawg into a multifaceted indica-dominant hybrid that uplifts while remaining grounded in soothing body effects. Happy yet laidback.
  • Super Silver Haze: Bred by Green House Seeds and first prize winner at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1997, 1998, and 1999, this cross of genetics of Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze creates a beautiful, sticky sativa blend that boasts an uplifting, energetic, long-lasting body high.
  • Jelly Fish: A very smokable flower with just enough THC to help the CBD components do their job, Jelly Fish is earthy and mellow. It is a good introduction for first-time smokers or those looking for the calming and health benefits of CBD in flower form.
