Humboldt County is to cannabis what France is to wine. Many of the medicinal cannabis strains popular throughout the world were developed here. Science and technology have merged with the spirit of the counterculture movement. Growth techniques that look to preserve the precious land and water resources of the natural environment represent the ideals of the cannabis culture. Residents, farmers, business owners and nonprofit groups are looking within themselves to restore and improve the local environment and wildlife habitat. With legalization, cannabis is undergoing the next phase of cultural integration into the American mainstream. Humboldt is proud and supportive of its rich green heritage and there are plenty of local organizations that want to help cannabis farmers succeed.

The County of Humboldt Cannabis Micro-grant, Marketing, and Local Equity Program, commonly referred to as ‘Project Trellis,’ is a trailblazing support initiative for the county’s cannabis industry. The three-tier program was developed on the heels of California’s legalization of recreational cannabis to provide business resources to cannabis businesses who otherwise wouldn’t have access due to federal restrictions.
