Warren Bobrow=WB: Please tell me about your company? Indoor or outdoor grown?
Otis Gardens, located in the lush Hood River Valley, Oregon, is hitting the mark and raising the bar for excellence in craft cannabis. Their cultivation site resides in the shadow of the majestic Mount Hood where a glacial spring nourishes hydroponic gardens powered by 100% renewable energy. Otis takes the approach of good horticulture over pure profit. It’s not that making money isn’t important, but the quality of the product is of greatest importance. Each step in the path from seed-to-sale is thoughtfully mastered, not in knowing everything but discovering what is not yet known. That is what is truly important. The ecosystem of cannabis is interrelated between the known and vividly imagined! Anything is possible in the cannabis family of passionate growers. Everyone should look forward to tasting the indoor terroir and immersing all the senses in the artisanal farm-to-table experience that is Otis Gardens. Who, by their own admissions, truly do grow potent cannabis.
Oregrown’s Terroir Tastes Like the Forest
I love Oregon’s weather. The climate reminds me of what New Jersey’s weather is like. Weeks of hot and dry, followed by weeks of damp, dark and raw. It’s familiar to me because I appreciate this “chill me to the bone” weather. It goes along with the cocktails that I enjoy this time of the year. This type of weather brings brilliance to my Oregon visit months ago, when I stayed at Portland’s best Bud n’ Breakfast, the Doctor’s House.
If you take a few seconds away from the day-to-day journey that most people take, from wake to sleep, there are very few opportunities to do what you love. That is especially true on the East Coast of the USA, where the search for success often clouds over the chance to actually do what you love.
Why You Should Know The Initiative & The Commune Founder Amy Margolis
Amy Margolis, a prominent 17 year practicing attorney and founder of the Oregon Cannabis Association, is an uncompromising go-getter. A deeply entrepreneurial attorney who’s made a career focusing on the Pacific Northwest (and beyond) cannabis space, Margolis is whip smart and uncompromisingly concise. She has dedicated her career in helping her clients and the industry as a whole navigate through the brave new world of cannabis legalization— a very new direction, one that is certainly not the divorce, tax, real estate or the multitude of legal careers she could have followed. Amy is a famed cannabis lawyer and she’s darned good at what she does. That’s only a very small part of what Amy has accomplished in her young life in Portland, Oregon, though. She recently announced the launch of both The Commune and The Initiative to ensure that the cannabis industry remains the most progressive and balanced emerging industry yet.
If the alluring scent of freshly roasted and slowly brewed coffee, intermingled with tantalizing whiffs of brain captivating, toasty, handmade muffins and perhaps a juicy ‘wake and bake’ bowl of the finest Oregon-grown cannabis jump-starts your imagination, then this is the Bud and Breakfast for you.
