Last October, East Fork tried what Howard believes were the first-ever cannabis flower bouquet popups in Portland and Eugene. Blue Bird Flowers, located at 1203 Willamette Street, hosted the local event.
Right around October is the best time to get the fresh cannabis sativa, but East Fork plans on doing more popups of dried and cured cannabis sativa flowers around holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day, Howard says. We could see it year-round, he adds.
The Howard brothers wanted to create and sell cannabis flower bouquets for years, and with the passage of the federal Farm Bill, legalizing the harvest of craft hemp at the federal level, their dreams became reality.
“We grew a few acres of really beautiful resinous hemp,” Howard explains. “With those hemp flowers we struck up a couple partnerships in Portland and Eugene to offer cannabis flower bouquets.”
Cannabis bouquets are made from arrangements as well as solo stems of CBD-dominant, very low THC and terpene-rich cannabis flowers — otherwise known as craft hemp. For looks, a few other non-cannabis flowers are added into the arrangement.
