Francis Ford Coppola, an entrepreneur and six-time Academy Award winning director (The Godfather and Apocalypse Now), has launched a cannabis lifestyle brand called The Grower’s Series with a limited-edition collection featuring three 100% organic cannabis flower strains hand-selected to offer distinct and memorable experiences.
Coppola has more than 40 years of agricultural expertise through a thriving wine business and created this new company to separately give life to a progressive vision for pioneering the highest quality, sun-grown cannabis products through sustainable farming.
“Wine and cannabis are two ancient and bounteous gifts of Mother Nature, linked by great care, terroir and temperateness,” Coppola said. “Expertise making one applies to the other. As with growing grapes, location matters, and The Grower’s Series reflects California agricultural expertise creating a true blend of art and science.”
There is an uplifting and creative sativa-dominant marijuana strain that is cultivated at Tan Oak Farms (elevation 1,700 feet) where the climate is warm from continuous sunshine; an indica-dominant strain that relaxes the body and mind is nurtured at Benbow Farm (elevation 600 feet); and a truly hybrid experience influencing enhanced mood and focus is grown at the Salmon Creek Farm (elevation 2,400 feet) where this strain benefits from cooler temperatures and diverse soil.
Marijuana from The Grower’s Series by Francis Ford Coppola will be available in November at select recreational dispensaries in California.
