California cannabis flower brand Flow Kana has debuted its first docuseries, a string of shorts highlighting the company’s farmers.
The Great Outdoor is a three-part series of shorts, with each episode profiling a different farm in the Emerald Triangle region of Northern California: HappyDay Farms, Moon Made Farms and Briceland Forest Farm.
Episodes each focus in on one season, breaking down the growing process before the farmers take their crops to market, looking not only at the shifting seasons but also at the shifting California laws as the state moves from a medical- to adult-use market.
The series is filmed by David Zlutnick, with Flow Kana co-founder Flavia Cassani serving as executive producer.
“California’s cannabis farmers have experienced radical change since prohibition was ended with the passage of adult use in 2016,” said Cassani in a statement. “Some things have not changed though, and that is their commitment to regenerative farming practices, and for many, the way they farm — planting both cannabis and produce in neighboring beds.
“This diversified farming was what originally inspired my husband and I to start Flow Kana — that food and medicine could be planted together, and sustain a community. It was important for us to be able to share that. Not everyone might be able to visit these farms, but we can share these experiences through the medium of film.”
