Over seven years ago, the state of Oregon legalized cannabis. On Friday, 'OM Extracts' opened its doors to the community and others in the cannabis industry to tour the farm. Elise Higley is the Board Director of Our Family Farms. She says she plans to educate the community on how to consume cannabis in a more healthy way.
"Our whole goal is to just kind of inspire people in the cannabis industry to use more organic and regenerative practices," said Higley.
Throughout the tour, people were able to take a look at how farmers plant, nurture, and sustain the drug. There was a walk-through of various greenhouses where the cannabis is before implantation and the field of plants that were already implanted into the ground.
Mitra Sticklen is the owner of OM Extracts and OM Farms, she and her partner Blake were facilitating the tour. "I think it's important that people understand that, you know, the impacts on our watershed, the impacts on soil, it can be pretty bad if people aren't using good environmental practices on their farm," said Mitra.
