About Our Owner
Guadalupe is a business entrepreneur / farmer who owns a 2.6-acre ranch. He has been harvesting medical marijuana in a greenhouse atmosphere for three years now. To ensure a quality produce, he uses natural fertilizers. What he likes to call. ( A Super Soil ) which consist of horse, bull, and bat droppings, along with eggshells, orange and banana peels.
When the harvest is completed, he brings the cannabis flowers to Steep Hill Labs in Berkeley, California, a respected and well-known laboratory. The flowers are tested for THC and CBD levels, as well as mite and mildew buildup, to make sure you get the best products. All flowers are processed using state-of-the-art technology.
Once cultivated and packaged, he markets the flowers and the machine trimmings to all dispensaries, delivery services, collectives, and patients throughout Northern and Southern California.
You are probably wondering, “Why does cannabis benefit so many different illnesses?” The short answer is that the cannabis is highly effective in treating pain and inflammation. It does this by working with the endocannabinoid system, which controls pain and inflammation. Can you think of a disease that does not come with inflammation and pain? I can’t.
The cannabis plant happens to be one of the most (if not the most) pharmacologically active plants on the planet, containing over 400 active chemicals. The unique active components of cannabis are called cannabinoids, which are found alongside active chemicals calledterpenoids(we also refer to them as terpenes)and flavonoids. These chemical components work together to provide a wide variety of therapeutic benefits to the human body.
Various levels and combinations of cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids provide many benefits to the human body, dilating blood vessels, stimulating bone growth, protecting damaged brain cells, killing certain kinds of cancer cells, preventing seizure, controlling muscle spasticity, killing viruses and bacteria to name a few. It is the combination of varying levels of cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids that seem to make the most effective medicine for specific symptoms and dis-eases – the isolated components appear to be less effective but nonetheless still therapeutic.
Cannabis has been found to ease general pain, chemo induced neuropathy, and nausea, as well as increase appetite and reverse wasting. It is also effective in controlling muscles spasms and seizures, healing damaged brain cells, protecting against the ravages of Alzheimer’s, and is an effective antioxidant.
Guadalupe was a former cancer patient who experienced the benefits of medical marijuana for himself. After a three-year battle that had him undergoing chemoradiation, he was able to regain his health because of cannabis. This has been his advocacy since then. If cannabis worked for him, then it should work for others. As a farmer and vendor, he assures that he can grow six plants per patient at most.
