Once again, while browsing Instagram, I came across @deschutes.growery out of Bend, Oregon. Their photos present their winsome plants like a portrait of a celebrity. Each plant has so much character; every picture branded with their DG logo on the side. The caption of this particular post reads: “Drugs. Very few have such a tangled history as a medicine. Prejudice, superstition, emotionalism, have managed to lead cannabis to the ups and downs of concerning both it’s therapeutic properties and its toxicological and dependence – including effects. We’re at a special time in history where these medicinal and recreational lines are blurring. #universaltruth”
We’re at a special time in history where these medicinal and recreational lines are blurring.
Each picture is as gorgeous as the caption. I reached out to them recently in hopes to visit their facility. The reason not only being the presentation of their flower online, but the fact that Deschutes Growery is the first indoor solar powered growery & Central Oregon’s 1st Clean Green Certified Produce. Let that resonate with you for a moment…
As a flower connoisseur, I shopped around Portland to find where I could get my mitts on some of their product. Oregon’s Finest Dispensary, in the Pearl District, down the street from my house providentially happened to have DG’s Hell’s OG & Cookie Wreck.
I rolled myself a joint and continued to have myself a creative evening. The quality came across immediately. There’s a taste that is drastically different when a flower is grown this clean.
The keys to success come from their innovative consciousness. They are not only seeking out how to make the best flower possible, but they’re also going to great lengths to offset any environmental impact they may produce by micro managing all aspects of the growery. From equipment, to usage of their business partners. In a sea of dolphins, Deschutes Growery is the Narwhal.
If DG was a boxer, they’d have that fat, shiny, heavy weight champ belt in Oregon currently. That being said, they are Oregon’s 1st Indoor Solar Powered Growery. All the lights inside are 100% LED powered by 180qty x 300W panels; 56 kW/h solar system. They are also Central Oregon’s 1st Clean Green Certified growery.
None of their plants are started from clone. They are extraordinarily selective with the seeds they procure; every single characteristic matters when it comes down to choosing their selected “Elite Phenotype.” Amazingly, they also make all of their soil from scratch to ensure they keep the entire growery a genuinely unique and sustainable environment for their precious girls.
After reading this to my mother in law, she said to me, “Why isn’t everyone using solar power to grow indoor?” It’s such a great question. Of course, I know, you’re saying, “Oh, the cost is ridiculous.” The price of solar has recently gone down, and the return on investment comes a lot faster than you would expect. Deschutes Growery is setting the bar for what it means to be sustainable with an indoor grow.
