Where it All Begins: “The Farmer and the Hash Writer”

Imagine, a new industry arrived. One that from its inception is deemed a nine-billion-dollar industry, fully functioning in the shadows long before the “industry” ever began. An industry that will yield with it, monumental riches, heaping on generational prosperity to those with the gall to act. Imagine, being able to get in on the ground level of this Gold-Rush turned green, buying up land and throwing up greenhouses. While a cannabis farm has been a dream for generations of youthful smokers, today it’s a dream anyone in their right mind would share in. Eyeing an opportunity to get in on the ground floor, Eric Walz of Humboldt Kine Farms made the move many of us will only dream about.

From the sunny So-Cal shores of San Diego to the Emerald Triangle and Humboldt County, California, the weed-world (pun-intended) is thankful for this solventless savant. Pumping out the finest Fresh-Frozen harvests in Humboldt County, helped the esteemed Humboldt Kine Farms surmount last year’s opposition, cleaning up in the most sought-after product category in cannabis: Ice Water Hash. He showed his first glimpse of genius by choosing to trust @Papas_Select. With the absolute excellence and precision quality Papa’s Select is now known for, Walz top spot in the Emerald Cup was solidified by a second-place finish for his Peanut Butter Breath. With Papa’s Select taking four out of the top five spots, I’d say both parties were on to something truly special. The two are working together to provide the best hash and rosin yet to reach California’s retail cannabis shelves.

Only five years removed from So-Cal, Eric Walz has built a farm, a following, and a future for cannabis. A future that few are pushing further than the solventless producers of the new, ice-water-world of hashish. Leaving behind the warm winters of SoCal for a cold and rainy Emerald Triangle, Walz has the vision and wit to see opportunity, but more importantly, the nerve to lead and the will to act. When met with opportunity many would shy away from, Walz was forced to test his resolve. His actions and drive to further cannabis and anchor himself to the ground-floor of a brand-new industry, leaves Walz to be best described as brazen in his efforts. He’s connecting the best with the best, to be the best, and the results are irrefutable.

In his first season in Humboldt, there was plenty to learn as one would expect and the first harvest was relatively small, but the evidence of quality was there. Over the next two years he would take things to another level, bringing the hash world some of the terpiest, tastiest, and most distinguished profiles of any genetics I have ever come across. Eric Walz’s outdoor, living-soil runs of THC-Bomb are nothing short of perfection and one of the clearest representations of what the new ice water hash experience is all about. It’s one of those terpene profiles best described, and quite perfectly described I might add, by Big-League Chew bubblegum, in Ground-Ball Grape. Lip-smacking, sugary-sweet, grape goodness with a euphoric blast to rival any other genetic.
