I recently had the privilege of visiting Noble Gardens during their harvest season, and let me tell you, it’s an experience that transcends the ordinary. At the heart of this cannabis haven is the indomitable Patty Lanier Farmer, a true luminary in the cannabis game.
Patty, the maestro behind Noble Gardens, has dedicated herself to the art of cultivating “premium, sun-grown craft cannabis.” Nestled among ancient forests near Lower Lake, California, Noble Gardens radiates a vibe that goes beyond the typical cannabis scene. The region’s natural beauty, with mountains embracing the 68 square miles of Clear Lake, provides a picturesque backdrop for this cannabis sanctuary.
What sets Noble Gardens apart isn’t just the quality of their product but the ethos that Patty embodies. She’s not just a farmer; she’s a community builder and advocate. The transition from a prop 215 farm to a fully licensed operation under Proposition 64 reflects Patty’s commitment to navigating the evolving landscape of the cannabis industry. Patty wears many hats, and one of them is as the co-hostess and co-founder of the “Moms Do Weed” podcast. Launched in the spring of 2022 with Chiah Rodrigues of Arcanna Flowers, this podcast aims to destigmatize the sacred plant and amplify women’s voices in the cannabis space. Patty’s dedication to compassion and community echoes not only in her farming practices but also in the initiatives she champions.
Noble Gardens isn’t just a brand; it’s a lifestyle curated by the queen bee herself—Patty. The 5,000-square-foot licensed cannabis farm is a testament to her unwavering commitment to quality. Patty’s expertise is not confined to the fields; it extends into the realm of knowledge-sharing through the “Moms Do Weed” podcast. In the face of challenges posed by the oversupply and competition from the black market, Noble Gardens stands tall. The Laniers, among the first to embrace legalization in Lake County, have weathered the storms and continue to produce cannabis that is nothing short of industry royalty.
Patty acknowledges the hurdles, especially with larger companies entering the scene, bringing a level of efficiency that can be daunting for smaller operations. Despite these challenges, Noble Gardens remains steadfast in its pursuit of excellence. The Laniers focus on the end quality of the product, investing the necessary resources to create an unparalleled experience for consumers.
Speaking of unparalleled experiences, I had the incredible opportunity to sample some of their Peanut Butter Triangle, a cross of Peanut Butter Breath x Triangle Kush during my visit, and let me tell you, it was a game-changer. It’s bred by Equilibrium Genetics – Jason Matthys. The flavor was an exquisite dance on the palate, with a rich aroma that teased the senses. But the real magic happened with the high—a smooth, softly sedative experience that found that sweet spot between relaxation and euphoria.
Peanut Butter Triangle is an indica-dominant strain with a distinctive aroma of gas, grape, and musk. The strain is a hybrid of Peanut Butter Breath (female) and Iraqi Triangle (male), resulting in a nutty taste reminiscent of indulging in peanut butter. The earthy nuttiness is well-balanced with calming and relaxing effects.
The deliberate blend of terpenes, which usually include limonene, valencene, and caryophyllene, contributes to its unique flavor profile. There’s something about those nutty exhales that make it stand out in the world of cannabis strains.
For the cannabis connoisseurs who appreciate uncanny aromas, nutty flavors, and the distinctive effects of well-crafted genetics, I highly recommend taking a journey down the rabbit hole of peanut butter phenotypes. Noble Gardens seems to have mastered the art of cultivating this strain, and it’s definitely a must-try for anyone looking to elevate their cannabis experience.
As I left Noble Gardens, I couldn’t help but feel that Patty’s wisdom and Noble Gardens’ lineup deserve a prominent place on every retail menu. The dedication, passion, and community spirit embodied by Noble Gardens are not just shaping a brand but contributing to the transformation of the cannabis industry itself.
In the ever-evolving landscape of legal cannabis, Noble Gardens and Patty Lanier are paving the way for a future where craft cannabis meets community passion.
