Russell Green, founder and CEO of three Mendocino County-based dispensaries, continues to showcase, market and distribute, county-grown cannabis flowers, in an effort to broaden his audience.
Despite Green’s efforts, very little of his products are sold south of Sonoma County. To address this issue, he has created the Kure Mendocino Invitational. The contest will welcome 28 local, licensed farms to participate and will provide testing, packaging, manufacturing and marketing, to ensure that it is a fair game. Customers will then vote to determine the premiere county cultivators.
The Invitational kicks off on Sept. 10 with a farmers-only informational supper held at Kure’s Lake Mendocino Drive store. Interested attendees should contact Kure to RSVP.
Kure will begin accepting high-grade flower for consideration from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31. All 28 entrants will be featured in a commemorative booklet and all 28 strains will be sold at Kure outlets and to regional partners.
Customers will have the entire month of February to judge the cannabis and submit their votes to a confidential online portal.
On April 1, 2022, there will be a dinner party hosted by Kure for the cultivators to announce the winner.
