US (OR): Soil supplier moves into cannabis industry

For the past 29 years, Lane Forest Products has provided Oregonians the organic materials needed to help create those spectacular landscapes and gardens Oregon is known for. And once recreational use of cannabis became legal in the state, Lane Forest Products came up with a high-end soil to help create spectacular weed.

The soil is called Cambium Harvest, and it soon became the company’s flagship product, according to Assistant Manager Dustin McCluskey. 

“We probably got into the periphery of the cannabis market in 2015,” McCluskey says. “I wouldn’t be surprised if half of all the soil blends in southern Oregon have Lane Forest compost in them.” 

McCluskey explains the ins and outs of cannabis growth on a tour of the facility. At first glance, all you notice are huge mounds of dirt, but after McCluskey describes all the ingredients that make up the soil, it becomes clear how much brain power goes into making the perfect blend.
