Cannabis Company Plans to Turn Desert Town into Pot Paradise
NIPTON, Calif. (AP) — Now that one of the nation’s largest cannabis companies has bought the entire California desert town of Nipton, a question remains: Will the new owners rename the place Potsylvania?
The name Weed already belongs to an old mill town in Northern California.
American Green Inc. announced Thursday it is buying all 80 acres of Nipton, which includes its Old West-style hotel, a handful of houses, an RV park and a coffee shop. Its plans are to transform the old Gold Rush town into what it calls “an energy-independent, cannabis-friendly hospitality destination.”
The town’s current owner, Roxanne Lang, said the sale is still in escrow, but confirmed American Green is the buyer. She declined to reveal price before the sale closes, but noted she and her late husband, Gerald Freeman, listed the property at $5 million when they put it up for sale last year.
Royal Kush (Hybrid)
Royal Kush, a cross between the famous Skunk #1 and oh-so-potent Afghani, is an Indica-dominant strain favored by patients with such ailments as insomnia, loss of appetite, pain relief, inflammation, nausea and anxiety. This bud appears to be infested with sticky tri-chromes, with orange and electric-white pistils. It also has a pungently danky, fruity, skunky and earthy aroma.

Strawberry Kush (Indica)
Strawberry Kush (Strawberry Cough x OG Kush) is a California sensation and a growers dream as the OG Kush helps to hulk out the notoriously finicky and low yielding Strawberry Cough. The smell is very fruity (like Strawberries) with earthy and chemy overtones from the OG. The taste of more typical of Chemdawg, with a fruity aftertaste. The effect is a very uplifting sativa high.
