The cannabis industry is at a unique stage of its maturity. There are plenty of white-label brands (product or service produced by one company that other companies rebrand to make it appear as if they had made it), which don’t represent who actually cultivated the flower or give acknowledgment to the breeder of said genetics. Flower sold through wholesale brokers don’t normally share where the flower they acquire end up powering a brand.
At CLTVTD, we power many white-label cultivators who don’t have a brand yet but are recognized by us that are elite cultivators. The SMLZ (small bud flower) initiative is our way of supporting those cultivators who produce the flower powered by our clones and representing the true lineage and genetics by the breeder on the packaging for consumer recognition. We focus on small buds because we want an affordable way for the consumer to try flower produced by these cultivators as many have a strong social media following who showcase and document the cultivation process creating a demand that leads to frustration when they can’t find somewhere to purchase the flower produced. The quality of small buds is high without the visual size & esthetics of a nug you see people flexing on the gram with. It all ends up in a grinder and smoked anyways, right?
