Omaha Farms – East Mesa, AZ
Most cannabis companies are consistently on the hunt for better products and strains to entice patients. But at Omaha Farms, owned by HUXTON, that process is reversed. Originally founded to help a painkiller-addicted family member recover after surgery, Omaha Farms still serves patients first and foremost. Matt LaScala, head of cultivation, says most of their new product ideas come directly from existing patients and dispensaries. Once LaScala and the team have that info, they set out to find strains or products to alleviate specific symptoms.
Omaha Farms offers products that provide a consistent feeling. Their Vibe series, available in Zen, Rise and HiFi varieties, does exactly that. Ready to yoga? Bring a tin of Zen. Looking to hike? Rise is what you’re looking for. Headed to a concert? HiFi. “For our Vibe series, we’re going with the experience and consistency,” explains AJ Montgomery, head of marketing. “We want people thinking about themselves, what they want to go do, and how they want to feel in a certain moment.” On the other hand, the BLCK series is exactly what Vibe is not: strain-specific flower from only the best buds on each plant. The new BLCK vape cartridge, filled with live rosin — full-spectrum fresh extract pressed using CO2 for 24 hours — is made for the ardent cannasseur.
Their 30,000-square-foot facility in east Mesa is already starting to look a little small for the fast-growing company that’s shipping around 200-250 pounds of cannabis each month. Operating under organic standards, everything from the dirt to the nutrients is blended on-site, with a wash area for harvest and growing equipment out back. With about 25 strains always growing and new extraction techniques enhancing their products, Omaha Farms’ next step is to help develop industry best practices once the market stabilizes.
