Belushi's Farm

Belushi's Farm 2.0

Belushi’s Farm is coming in hot this year. To address the issues that resulted in a challenging growing season, Chris Karakosta, farm general manager, turned to a cannabis cultivation consultant for guidance. Now, the farm has been entirely overhauled with state-of-the-art greenhouses furnished with Fuse LED grow lights.


Created as a gateway to healing, Belushi's Farm has been cultivating sun-grown, all-natural, rigorously tested cannabis since its purchase in 2015. What started as a 48-plant crop farm, Jim's farm is now a thriving cannabis business, especially since its overhaul. Belushi’s Farm 2.0 just celebrated its first harvest since the new updates, and Jim Belushi himself is now a believer in the latest technology.

Cannabis Then & Now | White Label Extracts

Even though cannabis has been a part of America's culture since our nation's beginning, the ‘60s and ‘70s are the eras most iconically associated with weed. We can all picture happy hippies passing joints and living their best lives. The counter culture movement gained traction in a way we’d never seen, inspiring large, peaceful gatherings like Woodstock and the Human Be-in, where cannabis consumption was enjoyed en masse. Although the ‘70s were a totally blazing time, the bud they enjoyed was a far cry from the craft cannabis available today.

The Entourage Effect

You have your group of friends, your entourage, if you will. But have you heard of the entourage effect? Many of us are already familiar with CBD and THC, the two most well-known and well researched cannabinoids on earth. But cannabis is far more than just these two components, it produces many other cannabinoids like CBN, CBC, CBG, and more. And then there are terpenes, the aromatic compounds also found in essential oils that give plants their smell. For a plant that is historically associated with "lazy" people, cannabis is quite complex!

You Deserve A Mindcation | Concrete Jungle

Life is getting increasingly more expensive, seemingly by the minute. Sometimes even taking a daycation feels out of reach.

Thank you for the music

Thank You For the Music | Rouge River Family Farms

When many think about the 1970s, the visual image that comes to mind is Woodstock. A cultural touchstone, Woodstock brought together half a million people living in peace for three days. Together they united to share food, music, and of course, a whole lot of weed. A cultural festival unlike any we have today, Woodstock was the peak of a youth movement that felt like it could transform the world.
