This landmark honors the story of The Hippie Trail and the work of Douglas Fir and Lawrence Ringo in Humboldt.
The Emerald Triangle is known today as The Amazon of Cannabis Genetics. It is a region famous for cannabis seed diversity, breeding projects, and cultivation. The cannabis seed vaults found in the Emerald Triangle are extraordinarily diverse because of The Hippie Trail phenomenon that happened.
The Hippie Trail was an overland adventure that was popularized from the mid 1950’s to the late 1970’s. Hippies from California would travel the Hippie Trail through Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Thailand and collect native landrace cannabis seeds along the way to bring back to The Emerald Triangle.
The Hippie Trail gave birth to modern day hybrid cannabis breeding projects, many of which are approached as plant alchemy based in therapeutic compounds. Legendary cannabis seed hunter Douglas Fir and Father of CBD Lawrence Ringo are both pioneers, who’s ground-breaking work continues to influence the modern cannabis industry today.
