Cannabis and ice cream go great together, but it took the enterprising genius behind a certain Santa Cruz cannabis farm to put the two together. That’s how the rest of the world learned about Creme de Canna, one of our favorite growers here at Adide Napa—a brand whose outside-the-box products we love to feature. If you’re interested in unusual offerings such as high-CBD badder concentrate and cannabis-infused raw honey, today’s post is definitely for you!
Creme de Canna: The Spark of Inspiration
Founded by medical cannabis lover Johnathan Kolodinski in 2010, Creme de Canna was launched with the vision of providing legal cannabis all across the Golden State and beyond. But it was the launch of the brand’s cannabis-infused ice creams that really took the cake, so to speak. Once news of Creme de Canna’s frozen offerings such as “Bananabis Foster,” “Straw-Mari Cheesecake,” and “Triple Chocolate Brownie” hit the airwaves, demand for the farm’s more traditional products took off as well.
In 2012, Creme de Canna branched out into cannabis extraction, a move that would seal the brand’s fame as a producer of unusual and highly effective dab concentrate and other extracts. In particular, the farm’s focus on high-CBD concentrates sets them apart, especially in an environment often dominated by the race to the highest THC level.
As you may know from previous visits to our cannabis blog, cannabinoids such as CBD and THC interact with our body’s own endocannabinoid system, a crucial regulatory network that helps control such functions as memory, immune and pain response, and many other processes.
