SpeakEasy founder Marc Geen had imagined it for years: standing in the middle of 60 acres of blooming cannabis plants, surrounded by crystal covered buds, the pungent scent hanging in the air.
Now it’s finally a reality.
“Walking through that is just unbelievable that it’s actually happening.”
Every week, with clipboard in hand, Geen compiled his assessment of each cannabis plant, collecting data throughout the growing season.
“The last step is a smell test—so you take the bud and you squeeze it a little bit and put your nose right to it so you can really absorb that flavour—and you get a little bit of resin on the end of your nose,” he recalls. “By the time I got to the 10th or 15th plant I could actually stick my pen to the end of my nose and leave it hanging.”
2020 was an extraordinary year for SpeakEasy Cannabis’ founder—“a whirlwind,” he says.
SpeakEasy harvested 60 acres of potted cannabis plants in fall 2020.
“It’s the largest legal harvest in the world,” says Geen. The previous record outdoor legal crop was in Colorado, where 40 acres of licenses were cobbled together, he says.
