California’s Pot Makes More Money Than the Next 5 Largest Crops Combined
Well before California legalized recreational weed in November, the state was already known as a major pot-producer, huge in fact.
According to the Orange County Register, the Golden State’s weed crop is not only the most valuable product in the nation’s biggest agricultural state, it is way ahead of the next most popular crop—by a long shot.
California’s mild climate and year-round farming made the rich Central Valley the breadbasket of the world at one time and provided the U.S. with fruits and vegetables that grew in very few other places.
The same went for the Napa and Imperial Valleys and the dry garlic fields of Fresno.
But now the biggest crop in California’s diverse cornucopia is marijuana.
Using data from the state Department of Food and Agriculture, as well as its own calculation of in-state pot production, the Orange County Register places the value of California’s weed crop above the top five leading agricultural commodities combined.
Cherry Pie (Indica)
Cherry Pies parents are Grand Daddy Purple and OG Kush. With buds that are dense and full or orange hairs and a touch of purple, the scent of this strain smells of sweet and sour cherry pie. The high has been known to come on in minutes and stick around for a couple hours. Great for stress, pain relief and depression.
