New Dawn, New Day: Sunday to Mighty Jamaica
We were welcomed by Kim from Mighty Jamaica, who is running a mobile dispensary for tourists in Negril. She knows where to find the right Ganja Remedy. Set atop a nice garden on a roof top, as she look up education to teach farmers to improve their Grade. We find good synergy between Alpha-CAT and Mighty Jamaica to train local farmers in Westmoreland and help them to increase their current standards. Big Up Kim !!! Keep up the good Jah work.
Sebastien was honored to meet personally one of the most influencial Rastafari Elder in Jamaican Cannabis industry, Ras Iyah V. He is a board member of the Cannabis Licenced Authority (CLA). We discussed about the development of Ganja cultivation standards and methodology that will fit the Rastafari faith way of life as «Ital». Ras Iyah V is the organizer of the Rootzfest which hosted the High Times Cannabis Cup last year.
Tuesday and Wednesday
On the next day Sebastien went to visit in Blue Hole, King Lawyer’s farm, the two-time winner (2014 and 2015) of the Stepping High festival, the oldest Jamaican cannabis cup event. Then we visited another farm in Orange Hill. It was very interesting to see the difference and similarity between farms in term of growing technique, which is based on seedling outdoors using black tires as pots. The quality of herb also varied in taste and shape, which was interesting because the best effect was obtained with the worst looking bud. Definitely something going on in the genetics, flavors and curing; and the whole combination makes each bud unique to smoke in Jamaica.
Thursday back in Kingston
I went to visit the Ital Steam Chalice Factory to bring back some good steamerz for Europe made by Ras Kalheb Selassie, the Ital steamer General. He is make one the finest Steam Chalice in the world some made in Coconut, Kalabash, Bamboo and differet size, small, medium, large, extra large.
