Sol Spirit Farm, a leading regenerative cannabis farm, is thrilled to announce its remarkable achievement in winning the highly coveted 2023 Emerald Cup Award for its exceptional organically regeneratively sun grown cannabis. This recognition highlights the farm’s unwavering commitment to sustainable practices and exceptional quality in the cannabis industry.

The Emerald Cup Award, one of the most esteemed accolades in the cannabis community, is presented annually to businesses that demonstrate excellence in cultivation and product manufacturing and produce top-tier cannabis products. Sol Spirit Farm stood out among a competitive field of participants with its dedication to regenerative farming techniques and its commitment to crafting premium, sun grown cannabis and took First Place in 3rd Party Certified Sungrown Flower. Sol Spirit Farm is 3rd party beyond organic certified through Sun and Earth and DEM Pure certifications.

To obtain Dem Pure and Sun and Earth certifications, a farm must adhere to specific criteria. These certifications typically require the implementation of organic farming practices, avoidance of synthetic inputs, and the use of natural sunlight for cultivation. Farms should prioritize soil health and regeneration through techniques like composting and cover cropping, as well as focus on water conservation and responsible water management. Biodiversity preservation and ecosystem protection are also important. Compliance with certification standards, including thorough documentation and regular inspections, is essential.

“We are beyond thrilled to be recognized amidst such an incredible group of cultivators. The Emerald Cup awards are really in a class by themselves as far as cannabis competitions go and we are so grateful for the opportunity to show off what we have been nurturing here on the farm. We knew this was a special cultivar as soon as she hit her stride in the garden. Many thanks to Hendrx nursery and Prolific Coast Seeds for the genetics, and to all the shops and cannabis enthusiasts who support us. Regenerative farming could help us solve our current climate crisis and regenerative cannabis farming is an important part of that,” said Judi Nelson, Farmer and Co-Owner of Sol Spirit Farm.

“This award is for ‘third party certified’ flower and it is important for folks shopping for cannabis to know that they can look for the Sun And Earth certification or the DEM Pure certification to be sure they are buying beyond organic, carbon sequestering, regenerative cannabis when they see those seals,” said Walter Wood, Farmer, Co-Owner and Head Cultivator at Sol Spirit Farm.
