I had the pleasure and opportunity to sit down and speak with one of the main operators from Crescent Cannabis a few days back. My first impressions were high and happy, meeting with the gentleman from CC face-to-face, allowing me to learn more about the company, in order to share the great things happening with this medically licensed cannabis producer here in The Valley of the Sun, Arizona. Sitting down and chatting was amazing! I was given a verbal and online power point presentation of everything that goes into making Crescent Cannabis a company to check out next time you hit the dispensaries.
The first thing we spoke about was cultivation. The process behind this goes far beyond what people might ordinarily think. A lot of work and routine steps are involved. Seeing how the process is broken down and meticulously worked through properly and with efficiency helped me see why I love Crescent Cannabis. They start from the ground level with proper lighting, housing medicine indoors, all of the proper equipment, state-of-the-art, and the personnel who know what they’re doing. Those working in the cultivation labs are trained on how to spot deficiencies and other harmful threats to the plant. This means they are giving us healthy, happy medicine. Working around the clock requires passion and dedication, both virtues Crescent Cannabis brings every day in order to deliver.

As a patient I knew the flower from the dispensaries was organically grown, pesticide free, and had me wanting to come back for more. Crescent Cannabis does indeed test all of their medicine to validate they are sending the dispensaries the best possible product for patients to consume. I really value companies that do this- who make sure we the patients are purchasing flower that not only helps, but also is clean and safe to use. All companies mentioned throughout Cannabis Cactus are great, and Crescent Cannabis is one to add to the list. I think it helps me when I see a name such as Crescent Cannabis, that I know I’m going to really enjoy the medicine I pick up. And, although I would enjoy other strains, maybe I’m just in the mood for something from Crescent Cannabis.

Three strains that I really enjoyed trying from the Crescent Cannabis team are: Alien Grapevine, Creme Brûlée, and Grape Ape. Each strain can be found on Leafly, as well as other reputable sites that give the lineage description of the strain you have. I’m kind of a nerd when it comes to cannabis – I want to know the cross of strains, who the parents and grandparents are, what effects the strains have, and what I can expect to taste on inhale. I love all strains, I truly do, although I will say the Alien Grapevine was on another level. The structure of the flower was healthy, thick and hearty. When breaking down the flower, I was amazed by how sticky the buds were. The taste was floral, fruity, and earthy. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t lay down for a while after this strain. Creme Brûlée was a treat – a sweet and herbal like taste, that left me feeling happy and creative. The Grape Ape was another favorite. That deep grape taste, like the soda, and earthy undertones on exhale always helps me feel motivated and ready to take on the day’s work.

A final word about the Crescent Cannabis team is that they are indeed a team. They are big on working together as a cohesive unit, a family in harmonious unison, so to speak. Each employee has to fit in with the team, because everyone has to give maximum effort, and know how to keep things flowing. I believe being a family run company, these values and principles are implemented into the daily work of Crescent Cannabis activities. Another reason to check out Crescent Cannabis, they are about helping us patients. They are working down to the science to bring a product that will give patients a reason to keep hope, to smile, and move forward in these times. That’s saying a lot. Thank you to all the folks at Crescent Cannabis, and I hope you, dear reader, find this company to be as amazing as I do.
