It was the year 2017 when Lowell Herb Co went viral. That was when its $55 smoke-able headpiece known as “weed flower crown” became a must-have at the California, Festival, Coachella. Due to the occasion, the company named the product the “Coachella blend,” and it featured strains that had names like “Chocolate Hashberry,” “Single White Girl” and “Dog Walker.”
Those interested could purchase it at the Palm Springs Safe Access in Coachella Valley.
The controversial head piece received mixed reviews from the public but was still met with an outpour of praise from media outlets like Buzzfeed, Vice, New York’s the Cut, and Harper’s Bazaar.
Lowell later received a cease-and-desist letter from the festival’s promoters, AEG which led to the change of the product’s name.
Lowell Herb Co is a cannabis farm based in California that only uses natural materials during the farming process. The fertilizer is also organic. The farm was originally established in 1909 by William “Bull” Lowell, but it had to close after California made it illegal to grow cannabis in 1913. It opened again much later with very good intentions.
In honor of William Bull Lowell’s work, the packaging featured on Lowell Smokes features a bull image.
The Coachella fiasco was only an introduction, Lowell released the Luxe Lowell Smokes prerolled packs in 2017, and people like Waka Flocka, Miley Cyrus, Chelsea Handler, Ty Dolla $ign, Calvin Harris, Diplo and Usher have praised the product.
This product was made to look like a cigarette pack that holds seven joints containing 6 grams of flower total.
It is now the best-selling preroll brand in California, and more than 300 California dispensaries are selling it.
In a pack of Lowell Smokes, you will find seven joints or 14 joints that contain between 22 percent and 25 percent THC. You have a choice of a pack of seven Lowell Smokes that have 3.5 grams of THC or a pack of 14 Lowell Smokes that has 7 grams of THC.
As is the trend in business these days, Lowell Herb Co took to the internet and took advantage of the buzz that the crown was creating online. When Miguel married Nazanin Mandi in November, they did it amongst a backdrop of the weed flower crown. Lowell Herb Co honored the event by creating the “N/M blend” especially for the couple.
It also played a prominent role in Haim’s December Planned Parenthood charity event and Lil’ Wayne’s 36th birthday celebration.
In addition, Lowell Herb created a cannabis bouquet just for Valentine’s Day, but we are fortunate that we can now obtain this product at any time of the year. The Game really likes the Strawberry Banana strain, and he let everyone know it in a post on Instagram.
According to him,
“It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”
Lowell Herb Co has more than just internet buzz and its herbal products thrusting it into the spotlight. It also has an old-fashioned, agrarian beauty that is behind its popularity. The packaging for Lowell’s products give them the elegance they deserve.
The company only uses its vintage Saroglia equipment to print its Lowell Smokes Packs with recycled paper. David Elias, Lowell’s co-founder, wondered why his product was being placed in plastic while others were given more dignified packaging.
He considers his product to be “farm-to-table” as other agrarian products are and believes they should be exhibited with antique items, such as wooden rolling kits, ceramic match holders, a $4,500 humidor and even a $15,000 retro vending machine.
Elias wanted to pay homage to the original cannabis farmer, so he ensured that the product would exude an informal charisma. The Adult Use of Marijuana Act or Proposition 64 passed in California in 2016.
The enterprising Elias founded Lowell Herb Co’s parent company with Sean Black. Of the founding, Elias stated that he and Black “…saw the opportunity to legitimize and normalize the cannabis experience.”
Elias and Black decided to avenge William “Bull” Lowell. After the 1913 Poison Act was passed that made it illegal to grow marijuana, the farm was shut down, and Bull was taken to jail. Today, the farm is back, and it is paying all of its workers a living wage.
The duo was so committed to being green and organic that Elias and Black tested for pesticides in the soil before the government required this testing in 2018. They also refused to package their products in plastic and used glass instead.
These actions increased their costs, but they were determined to gain their customers’ trust.
Lowell Herb Co is going to continue giving customers what they want and has a new product that may fit that description.
Their latest product is called “Chiefs,” and it is like the 1-gram, tobacco-free blunt that is sold in other shops. They are also introducing a variety pack that gives consumers seven individual prerolls from different strains.
They have also increased their growing space with the purchase of a 63-acre farm that will begin working this summer. To top it all off, in 2020, they will open a consumption lounge that will allow marijuana users to consume the product in Hollywood.
