Lazy Bee Gardens Wins "Best Sungrown Flower” At High Times Cannabis Cup

Lazy Bee Gardens is excited to report that our very own sungrown strain, Powder Hound, took home first place for Best Sungrown Flower in the High Times Cannabis Cup. The awards, a new merger between Dope magazine and High Times, were granted at Seattle’s iconic Hempfest on Saturday, August 17th.

We took home first place for Powderhound, our sativa-dominant flower that has captured the hearts of many. This strain is a popular favorite for boosting both energy and mood. Wrapped in the fresh aroma of citrus and pine, Powder Hound provides a full-bodied smoke that will energize and stimulate the mind and body, making it the perfect strain for daytime use and outdoor adventures. 

Spark An Adventure: Skykomish Swimming Holes

Spark An Adventure: Skykomish Swimming Holes

There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than to spend the day relaxing by the water and toking up. We recently felt lucky enough to have Anjelika (@abilitytogive) show us one of her favorite swimming holes, a serene riverside space in Skykomish. 

The Skykomish drains from the Cascade mountains into Snohomish County with beautiful forest and tributaries stretched throughout. Many people take to kayaking, rafting, swimming, and fishing in the Skykomish river each year. We spent the day kicking back on the rocks and enjoying the soothing sights and sounds of our secret swimming hole.

What Is Sungrown Cannabis?

What Is Sungrown Cannabis?

As the name suggests, sungrown cannabis is cannabis grown exclusively from the energy provided by the sun. No industrial lighting, no electricity, just nature. 

While each growing method has its own unique advantages, growing cannabis outside with the help of nature provides a sustainable edge. Sungrown cannabis requires no electricity and instead relies on the environment to provide sunlight and necessary elements for growth, producing stronger, superior plants to other methods.

Spark an Adventure at Boulder River

Spark an Adventure at Boulder River

Over the river and through the woods lies a lush oasis. A large waterfall splits down a mossy cliff. Vibrant teal glacial waters flow over smooth rocks. Are we in the tropics? Nope, it’s Boulder River in Washington State!

We recently went out to spark an adventure at this secluded spot. Boulder River is a bumpy drive (seriously, don’t drive a small car out there) out of cell range so it’s not usually crowded. Our friend and talented photographer Keti also joined.

Spark an Adventure at Lake Serene

While spring has certainly sprung, there’s still snow at the top of some trails. We recently took our adventures to new heights at the stunning Lake Serene. This steep trek included twists, turns, snow, ice and of course, a whole lot of cannabis.

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.
