Take a quick look at how organic and bio-dynamic our plantation is. We've got cows providing fresh fertilizer and cleaning up some of the leftover material from our harvest.

CBG is one of several cannabinoids in marijuana that has yet to be fully examined by the medical community.  Here at the Pot Zero Plantation in Gypsum, CO www.potzero.co we are very fortunate that our crop in 2017 exhibited high levels of CBG.  We believe this was due to the stress of two major early blizzards and extreme light deprivation and temperature fluctuations, along with other environmental conditions.  Typically, marijuana contains levels of CBG below 1%, as CBG converts to CBD and THC during a plant’s normal life cycle.  However, we have CBG in all of our strains of 2-4% and when concentrated, our CBG levels are 6-7 percent.  We are very fortunate that the CBG in our plants is FAR ABOVE AVERAGE.  This high level of CBG makes for a particularly interesting high without paranoia and very anti-anxiety and relaxing. 

CBG has been studied scientifically on a limited scale and needs to be examined further.  However, studies by the National Center for Biotechnology Information thru the National Institute of Health, the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, and Science Direct, all point to the potential therapeutic benefits of CBG.  CBG is non-psychoactive and appears to minimize the paranoia effects of THC.  It appears to aid in the treatment of depression, inhibit the growth of tumors in colorectal cancer, alleviate the inflammation in persons suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Crohn’s Disease, relieve ocular pressure in patients suffering from glaucoma, assist in the treatment of bacterial infections including MRSA, minimize anxiety, protect neurons in patients suffering from Huntington’s disease which is characterized by nerve cell degeneration in the brain, and potentially assist in psoriasis and multiple sclerosis.

If you don't know what CBG is, this article does a great job explaining the benefits. Pot Zero Orange Krush and Axilla cartridges are now available with naturally occurring high CBG levels as well as high THC!  THC potencies of 65-70% with 6-7% CBG.  No one else has this in Colorado!

Consumers want sustainable products!

Earth 911, a website that connects consumers with companies that have sustainable business practices, explains some of the reasons why consumers want to buy products from sustainable businesses, as well as why businesses should have sustainability rooted in their business practices. At Pot Zero, we believe the same thing!

Consumer trends say that millennials are willing to pay more for green and sustainable products. The article says that even if businesses don't believe in eco-friendly practices, it is best for them to invest in eco-friendly practices so they can appeal to green consumers. At Pot Zero, we do just that! Our marijuana cultivation is rooted in sustainable practices. From being powered by a Hydro-electric plant, to using natural fertilizers and no pesticides, Pot Zero is as green as it gets. 

It's Time to Make Marijuana Green Again

It's Time to Make Marijuana Green Again

A dangerous disconnect between drug policy and environmental policy has reared its head amid America’s marijuana legalization process.  Legislators and energy agencies have largely turned a blind eye to the carbon footprint of indoor cultivation, which already belches out greenhouse-gas emissions equal to that from 3 million cars in America.  The problem has been well documented in the academic literature since 2012.

HOW MUCH ENERGY DOES INDOOR POT REALLY USE?

In the early 1980s, the objective of Ronald Reagan’s War on Drugs was the complete eradication of the cannabis plant. Marijuana-seeking helicopters forced growers to cultivate deep in the hills, where it was difficult to grow and tend the plants. Outdoor guerrilla growers were often lucky to harvest at all, and the resulting crop wasn’t always the best. Other growers took their craft indoors to avoid prying choppers. These indoor growers quickly improved their techniques and “green bud” was born, creating the new standard of cannabis that we know today.
