What is a Cultivar?
A cultivar is a plant or grouping of plants selected for desirable characteristics that can be maintained by propagation. At East Fork Cultivars, we specifically breed and select cannabis cultivars with a focus on cannabidiol (CBD). A guiding value of ours is to reintroduce CBD-rich and CBD-dominant cannabis to consumers by breeding, selecting and curating cultivars that express these properties.
Why Should I Trust Cannabis Grown By East Fork?
We are a Clean Green Certified farm. What does that mean? Since cannabis remains federally illegal, governments will not allow companies to receive organic certification. Fortunately, the folks at Clean Green have stepped in and created their own certification program. They assure consumers that we use organic products and organic, sustainable practices.
We start with a solid foundation of strong genetics and carefully-selected phenotypes and raise the plants to maturity, carefully and selectively. Each plant undergoes rigorous inspections throughout its life, from sow through harvest. Once harvested, the flower and plant material is finished with multiple points of quality-control before being packaged for delivery at one of our dispensary partners. Only the best flower, concentrates and edibles reach your hands.

WHY IS TESTING CANNABIS AT RESPECTED LABS IMPORTANT?
Safety and potency are important to be aware of in any product you consume. Test results ensure that your products are devoid of dangerous pesticides, molds and fungus. Cannabinoid potency is important so you know how to dose your intake and can choose the cultivar that will offer you the effects you desire. THC and CBD are two major medicinal components in cannabis, and should be clearly and accurately labeled. Generally speaking, THC provides therapeutic benefit with a euphoric effect, while CBD provides a non-intoxicating therapeutic experience. One combination of THC and CBD may be suitable to help people with severe chronic pain, while another may be more effective for patients suffering from epilepsy. Having analytical information from a respectable lab ensures proper cannabis selection and dosing.
WHY DO YOU USE THE TERM CANNABIS INSTEAD OF MARIJUANA?
The team at East Fork Cultivars made the conscious choice to use the scientific term for cannabis instead of Marijuana as a way to stand apart from its racist and negative history and take progressive steps towards legitimizing the healing plant. It is our hope that Oregon and other states will follow suit.
