Have you ever wondered what a cannabis crop in one of the most legendary grow regions of the world looks like?
It’s probably like nothing you’ve ever experienced: weed as far as your eyesight can go, the buds emanating their unique smells and contrasting against beautiful sunsets, the sound of plants swinging with the wind.
What’s even more magical and breathtaking than the grow itself is the harvest season, when the plants are at their best. For outdoor grows in the U.S., this usually takes place between October and November. According to Green Market Report, approximately 80% to 85% of the legal cannabis industry’s outdoor cannabis is harvested during this brief period of time.

Cannadips, a company that makes hemp-derived CBD pouches to help people quit tobacco, is pulling back the Redwood curtain and inviting 10 lucky people to check out the upcoming cannabis harvest. The tour will have attendees visiting multiple grow operations in a day: from Xotic Flavorz, Ridgeline Farms and Humboldt 36 Farms, to CannaCountry Farms, Arcata Fire and Ammo Brand.
A total of 4 winners of the Croptober Getaway Sweepstakes contest will be picked every 2 weeks between May 1st and June 30. One last winner will be announced on June 30, and selected through an Instagram competition where the author of the best photo posted using the #Croptober2021 hashtag will win a free trip to Humboldt.
