Yo, Berner: Sweeten your Sacramento stop with Friendly Farms’ dessert vapes and Creamy’s mini-cheesecakes, cookie-cheesecake sandwiches and cheesecake-filled donuts.

BY ED MURRIETA

California cannabis mogul and rapper Berner probably has most of his pre-show and green-room needs met. But if he or his entourage are looking for local dessert treats before or after Friday’s gig at Ace of Spades in downtown Sacramento, I’ve got two recommendations readily available nearby:

Friendly Farms’ Dessert Collection vape cartridges are sold near Ace of Spades at All About Wellness (a five-block walk) and Northstar (a short light-rail trip). Or contact Humble Root for delivery. Forbidden Fruit and Raspberry Creme Brulee are my favorites.

Creamy’s mini-cheesecakes, cookie-cheesecake sandwiches and cheesecake-filled donuts are sold in  Cayla Jordan’s dessert cart three blocks up R Street from Ace of Spades at 12th and R streets. Try ’em all.

Creamy’s is working with Friendly Farms on our #FriendlyLife #LocalLifestyles food and beverage promotion launching in March and featuring foods and beverages inspired by Friendly Farms’ Dessert Collection, extracted from strains curated for their fruity, spicy and candylike terpenes indulgently evocative of decadent desserts..

New limited-edition True Full-Spectrum live resin artisan extracts capture decadent indulgence of designer cannabis strains’ dessert flavors

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 4, 2019 — Leading online cannabis lifestyles publication Leafly says the sumptuous dessert strain craze will continue in 2019 while manufactured extracts eclipse raw flowers in the regulated retail market.

Friendly Farms, Sacramento’s award-winning artisan producer of True Full-Spectrum live resin cannabis extracts, is capitalizing on both predictions.

Friendly Farms’ new limited-edition Dessert Collection captures decadently indulgent flavors, aromas and effects of exotic strains grown by top California cultivators, evoking sweet, tart, fruity, spicy dessert-like treats — all contained in affordable, convenient vape pens that are enjoyable on the go or on the couch.

Friendly Farms’ Dessert Collection flavors include seven strain combinations evoking desserts and three strains so dessert-like they stand on their own: Forbidden Brulee, Forbidden Raspberry, Forbidden Sunset, Ogre Berry, Raspberry Creme Brulee, Raspberry Sherbert, Vanilla Sherbert, Raspberry Kush, Headband and Forbidden Fruit.

New Dessert Collection flavors will be released throughout the year in small batches, curated from cannabis grown by top cultivators in the Emerald Triangle and Santa Barbara County.

“Dessert Collection flavors are crafted from whole plants that Friendly Farms’ artisans combine like chefs combine ingredients to create specific flavors and experiences,” said Friendly Farms culinary and media consultant Ed Murrieta, a trained baker and pastry chef. “Raspberry Creme Brulee is crafted from two strains: Raspberry Kush and Creme Brulee. Raspberry Creme Brulee vape pens taste like berries and custard, burned sugar and exotic spice.”

Friendly Farms’ Forbidden Fruit, Forbidden Brulee, Raspberry Kush and Headband were honored last month among the top 10 entries in live-resin vape pen and sauce categories of the 2018 Emerald Cup.

Forbidden Fruit, super fruity; Raspberry Kush, redolent of berries, vanilla, eastern spice and summer stone fruit; and Headband, full of lemon and earth, are so dessert-like they stand on their own.

“If you grew a Snozzberry strain, Friendly Farms’ Snozzberry vape pen would taste like snozzberries,” Murrieta said. “Friendly Farms’ Dessert Collection is the way to indulge your sweet tooth and enjoy cannabis at the same time.”

Emerald Cup Attendees Taste True Full Spectrum in Friendly Farms’ Live-Resin Vape Pens

100 percent pure whole-plant cannabis extracts — no heat-stripped distillates, no additives of any kind — impress palates at premier California event.

SANTA ROSA, Calif., Dec. 16 — Tasting were rare at this year’s edition of The Emerald Cup, Northern California’s premier cannabis event showcasing and honoring artisan cultivation and production.

The lone legal standout was Friendly Farms, the artisan producer of true full-spectrum cannabis extracts. Tucked in a booth with Alien Labs and Connected Cannabis‘ jam-packed booth in the main exhibition building at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, Friendly Farms provided tastes and satisfaction to hundreds of people Saturday and Sunday.

For $1 each, Emerald Cup attendees tasted seven live-resin vape designer cannabis strains from Friendly Farms: White Fire, Fire OG, Smarties, Gelato33, Gushers, Wedding Cake and Biscotti. All funds raised from tasting fees will be donated to Cage-Free Cannabis as part of Friendly Farms’ Give Back Program helping people in need.

Not only was any sort of tasting rare at The Emerald Cup in its new regulated legal cannabis era, the tastings Friendly Farms provided were rare themselves: true full-spectrum cannabis concentrates whose flavors, aromas and effects are derived from whole plants — a rarity in a market swimming in inferior THC distillates stripped of original terpenes and reconstituted with non-cannabis terpenes to chemically resemble natural cannabis.

In totally unscientific terms, Friendly Farms proprietary true full-spectrum process hella captures the decadence of designer cannabis strains: sweet, fruity, herbal, spicy, exotic and indulgent.

Friendly Farms’ true full-spectrum live-liquid etracts are crafted from premium sun-grown cannabis that’s flash-frozen at harvest and extracted at a low-temperature to preserve natural terpenes and cannabinoids, the DNA of the flavors, aromas and effects associated with specific strains.

True Full Spectrum

While Friendly Farms blends cannabis strains, it blends whole plants, not industrial terpenes of the sort that lurk in popular distillates.

Touring The Emerald Cup trade-show booths, I learned you could pick almost any cannabis strain you can think of and buy the terpenes to create the flavors of that strain. Or you could Frankenstein your own “cannabis strain” by adding terpenes derived from other plants to THC distillate.

Think of that next time you vape or dab distillate that tastes like lemony furniture polish.

Also pay attention to how fast and well Friendly Farms’ true full-spectrum cannabis concentrates affect you: Pretty fast and wholesomely, like hitting joint in vape-pen form. Distillates don’t do that.
