CAN (BC): Micro-grower went from legacy to legal

Jeff and Sheri Aubin are the couple behind the mom-and-pop legal cannabis grower Smoker Farms. Jeff has been growing for 25 years and has brought his legacy experience to the legal market. “Cannabis is my life,” he says. “All I’ve ever wanted to do is grow it.”

Located in Beaverdell, B.C., Smoker Farms is a micro-cannabis producer able to grow about 500 pounds a year. The operation is tucked into the West Kootenay woods off Highway 33 on a lot where the Aubins plan to build a home. They sold their place in Kelowna and uprooted their life in November 2020 to follow their cannabis dream.

“I was in the black market, hiding behind a medical license like everybody,” says Jeff. “Obviously I was hoping one day it would lead to this, but never thought it would ever happen in our lives. When the legalization of cannabis came around, we had to make quick decisions on what we were going to do because I was done with the black market; it’s a saturated market. I was sick of being afraid that everything I’d worked for so long would be taken away from us by illegalities.”

Smoker Farms’ first small-batch release was The Ultimate. The Indica-dominant hybrid has 21.8% THC and 2.89% terpenes, mainly caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene. It is packaged and distributed through Joint Venture Craft Cannabis.
