Made in Montana Cannabis Growing Series: Craft Cannabis

Two Collective Elevation Team members tending to the craft cannabis grow.

Growing craft cannabis and creating craft cannabis products is all about attention to detail and the care that goes into cultivating the perfect plant. 

And when it comes to living soil, we believe that it’s the truest form of craft cannabis. Why? Because living soil allows the plant to take in exactly the nutrients it needs, based on the specific cultivar being grown. Every strain of cannabis has unique nutrient needs, and living soil allows the roots to naturally seek out those nutrients, creating a truly bespoke growing experience. 

This results in a cannabis product that is rich in flavor, aroma, and potency, with a complexity of effects that can’t be replicated with synthetic nutrients. If you’re looking for the ultimate craft cannabis experience, look no further than living soil cultivation. 

At Collective Elevation, we begin with top-of-the-line organic living soil which we amend with our in-house brewed compost tea and enrich with native microbes from locally-sourced organic inputs. The use of beneficial insects provides natural pest control by reducing the need for pesticides, while our living soil provides habitat and food sources for these insects in the form of plants, nectar, and prey insects. In return, the beneficial insects help control pest populations that could otherwise damage our plants. This dynamic relationship creates a natural and self-sustaining pest management system, healthier plants, and ultimately superior cannabis products. 

At Collective Elevation, we focus on quality, uniqueness, and attention to detail. Using traditional and sustainable growing methods, we also emphasize on maximizing the plant's potential in terms of flavor, aroma, potency, and overall quality.

Key characteristics of our craft cannabis products include:

  • Small Batch Production: We produce our cannabis products in small batches, allowing us to give individual attention to each plant and product, while ensuring the highest quality.
  • Attention to Detail: We pay close attention to every aspect of the cultivation process, from selecting the best genetics to providing optimal growing conditions and carefully monitoring the plants throughout their life cycle.
  • Quality Over Quantity: At Collective Elevation, we prioritize quality over quantity, focusing on producing premium, high-quality flower.
  • Unique Strains and Genetics: In our cultivation, we focus on both classic and unique strains, as well as the development of new and innovative genetics through selective breeding and experimentation.
  • Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly Practices: We use sustainable and environmentally friendly practices, including water conservation, natural sunlight, integrated pest management, and avoiding synthetic chemicals and pesticides in favor of natural and environmentally friendly alternatives.
  • Community and Culture: At Collective Elevation, we have a strong sense of community, a longstanding passion for the plant, and a commitment to preserving its traditions and heritage. We focus on locally sourced inputs, community outreach and education, and supporting other Montana-based cannabis businesses.
