Sun Cup 2019 Highlights

Sun Cup 2019 Highlights

On Saturday Lazy Bee Gardens and Washington’s sun-grown farmers gathered at the Seattle Glass Blowing Studio to celebrate the 2019 Sun Cup. The event, organized by the Washington SunGrowers Industry Association (WSIA), included guest speakers, a silent auction, catered food and of course — industry awards.

The event drew an estimated 150 attendees. Keynote speaker, living soil expert Jeff Lowenfells, discussed organic and sustainable farming. We also heard an industry update from WSIA’s lobbyist and background on genetics from breeder, Gas.

Terpestival 2019 Recap

Terpestival 2019 Recap

We recently attended the 2019 Terpestival at the Seattle Glassblowing Studio. The event, coordinated by the Center for the Study of Cannabis and Social Policy, is a private mixer as well as an opportunity to recognize Washington brands. The Lazy Bee team felt honored to not only attend, but also win two awards.

The evening started with dabs from our friends at Olala. They are one of several companies we work with to process our flower into oil, and love the work they do. We especially loved their flavorful extracts with our Tesla Tower.

Spark an Adventure at Franklin Falls

Spark an Adventure at Franklin Falls

Winter is in full effect. Both the cities and mountains have been bombarded by snow. Employees are bundled up as they work from home. But if you’re like Lazy Bee Gardens, this is the best time to spark an adventure. And that’s just what we did as we trekked through the snow to one of our favorite locations — Franklin Falls.

This trail is a standout, and the first to kick off our #SparkAnAdventure campaign. We chose Franklin Falls for its proximity to Seattle, vibrant green waters and of course, the magnificent waterfall that becomes a frozen wonder in the winter. If you’re new to Washington, or even new to hiking, this trail is a must.

Tour Lazy Bee's Clean Green Certified Farm

Tour Lazy Bee's Clean Green Certified Farm

Lazy Bee Gardens is Tier 3 Producer/Processor located in Winthrop, Washington. We are proud to be Clean Green Certified, practice sustainable farming methods and produce terpene rich products. We’re often asked bout our farm, so want to share an inside look at our operation.

We grow roughly 5,000 plants per year. Our 2018 harvest included a mix of greenhouse and open air sun-grown cannabis. The entire field is almost an acre, but due to Washington State Liquor Cannabis Board (WSLCB) regulations, Lazy Bee’s flowering canopy space is only 30,000 square feet.

Retail Buzz: Hashtag Cannabis

Retail Buzz: Hashtag Cannabis

If you’re in the cannabis industry, you know the difficulties discussing retail partners on social media. Even the most subtle mention can be perceived as sales. Then poof — your account is gone!

At Lazy Bee Gardens, we love our vendors and want to shout their stories from the top of our lungs. It’s why we’ve started a new blog segment called Retail Buzz, to highlight our retailers and upcoming events without fear of deletion. So without further ado, our first Retail Buzz is Hashtag Cannabis.

Best Strains for Thanksgiving

Best Strains for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so you know what that means - awkward questions from family members, listening to your aunt’s political rants and the inevitable drunken drama. But there’s also the amazing Thanksgiving meal, spending quality time with cousins you haven’t seen in a while, and of course, watching football.

No holiday (especially one with so much food) is complete without cannabis - but not all strains are friendly for family members or social situations. So what are Lazy Bee’s best strains for Thanksgiving? We have a few in mind.

Best Flowers for Bees

Best Flowers for Bees

Today is National Honey Bee Day. These tiny creatures are vital to our ecosystem. However, due to things like pesticides and Colony Collapse Disorder,  scientists estimate approximately 10 million beehives have been lost since 2006. That's why we all have to do our part, and sometimes it's as simple as planting flowers. So whether you have acres of land, or only a couple pots on a patio, these are our best flowers for bees.
