Flow Kana Opens World’s First Cannabis Education & Wellness Campus In Mendocino

Flow Kana opened the doors to their new Flow Cannabis Institute, a former Mendocino winery turned cannabis supercenter, to help small farmers, showcase sustainable farming, and raise the cannabis recreation bar. WIRED and 48hills featured the Flow Cannabis Institute as the world’s first cannabis education and wellness campus with a mission to help small cannabis farmers survive the invasion of Big Cannabis.

Nestled inside an old winery in Redwood Valley, the Flow Cannabis Institute stretches across 80 acres of land in Mendocino, California. The institute serves as a resource for farmers to test, dry, cure, trim, process, and package their strains for distribution. Farmers give their harvested cannabis to the institute to be stored in conducive environments, and at the right time, it is thoroughly prepared and distributed. Promoting best practices and sustainable farming techniques, Flow Kana will be the center of processing, manufacture, education, and leisure. 

Soon regulations, taxes, and competition will modify the market share of many cannabis producers. When the market matures, Flow Kana has positioned the company to appeal to the specialty consumers betting they’ll pay for a more unique product.
