True Full-Spectrum Liquid-Live Extracts Recognized at Cannabis Industry’s Premier Competition

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 18, 2018 — Friendly Farms, the innovative craft producer of true full-spectrum cannabis extracts, was recognized in Santa Rosa on Sunday for 6 of 7 products it entered into The Emerald Cup, California’s longest-running and most respected industry competition and awards showcase, now in its 15th year promoting progressive cannabis agriculture and artisan consumer products.

Friendly Farms’ vape-pen cartridges and dab sauces placed in the top 10 of their respective highly competitive categories, led by Forbidden Fruit’s 2nd-place showing in the live-resin vape cartridge category. Friendly Farms’ Forbidden Brulee, Headband and Raspberry Kush placed 5th, 7th and 9th in that category. Friendly Farms’ Headband and Citrus Sap placed 8th and 9th in the sauce category.

The Emerald Cup’s recognition followed three first-place victories in May at High Times’ Sacramento Cannabis Cup, the historic first state-licensed event of California’s recreational cannabis era.

“The Emerald Cup’s world-class judges recognize Friendly Farms’ innovation in true full-spectrum concentrates,” Friendly Farms Chief Executive Officer Darrin Gatto said.“Our passionate team is honored to be recognized for the craftsmanship and quality we deliver to our dedicated community of cannabis connoisseurs who choose unique products that enhance their lifestyles.”

True Full-Spectrum Innovation

Affirmed by collaborations with leading designer cannabis cultivators Alien Labs, Connected Cannabis and Sherbinski, Friendly Farms’ true full-spectrum cannabis extracts stand out in a competitive market full of heat-separated distillates and pressure-separated CO2 concentrates. Crafted from cannabis cultivated in the Emerald Triangle, Santa Barbara County and other premium growing regions in California, Friendly Farms’ true full-spectrum extracts preserve native terpenes and cannabinoids of premium plants at sub-zero temperatures, ensuring natural flavors, aromas and effects are retained.

“Friendly Farms’ liquid-live vape cartridges and sauces are 100-percent cannabis and contain no distillate or any added terpenes,” Friendly Farms Chief Innovation Officer Charles Smith said. “We start with the best whole plants and finish with the best whole-plant extracts. We craft flavorful, aromatic and potent true full-spectrum cannabis extracts.”

Dessert Collection Coming Soon

The next Friendly Farms product line to hit California’s licensed marketplace is the Dessert Collection; small-batch exotic sativa, indica and hybrid strains whose flavors and aromas evoke decadent indulgence. Friendly Farms’ limited-edition Dessert Collection vape pens will be available at cannabis stores in Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles starting in January.

Giving Back to Local Communities

Friendly Farms donates $1 to local homeless and youth programs and charities in each market for every gram sold via retail stores and delivery services.

“With the support of our customers and retail partners,” Gatto said, “our community Give Back Program helps us help people facing the biggest social issues plaguing California: homelessness and the lack of youth support in our communities. We’re fortunate to be able to give back.”
