With the arrival of April, we are full-on into spring. And wouldn’t you know it… we caught a grand case of Spring Fever!

That means we are already poring over seed catalogs and formulating our strategy for our 2022 planting season! Our seed wish list has filled up nicely. Now we’re in the process of narrowing down our candidates to determine the finalists that will be planted in our fields.

As if that were not enough, we are also developing and testing new potential products that we hope to add to our shelves soon!

But we haven’t forgotten you, our dear and valuable customer! Yep, we have set up a fun April complete with a month-long sale on big buds and some extra surprises popping up throughout the month.

As is usual, you will find one month-long sale opportunity you can grab whenever and as often as you wish! But April also has other celebrations in which we plan to participate. Here’s the scoop on our April sales and events…

BIG BUDS – 20% OFF THROUGHOUT APRIL!

Our hemp flower collection represents the core of our entire product line. Even customers not into smoking or vaping our fragrant and effective varieties of CBD and CBG hemp strains still appreciate the compounds contained within this astonishing plant. 

For instance, our tinctures and lotions contain key cannabinoids from the hemp plant. And now we offer ingestibles that take further advantage of different cannabinoids found in our plant material.

Of course, in addition to big buds we also have smalls, shake/trim, and kief that are collected from our hemp plant. But if you want to indulge in the fullest and richest flavors from our hemp flower collection, go for our big buds!

Sure, they are priced slightly higher than our smalls, shake/trim, and kief but that’s simply in comparison to our own price scale. Consumers rave about the affordable pricing for our top-shelf big buds after they have visited other CBD outlets.

Well, get ready to really rave all through April! That’s because ALL of our big buds are 20% OFF throughout this month! We are talking about our regular organically-grown CBD and CBG Flowers along with our Delta-8 and THC-O Flowers!

Wow, that makes for a lot of awesome and delicious hemp flower strains to sort through! Speaking of which…

Have you ever wished you had a one-stop spot where you could compare all our CBD/CBG Flowers?

If so, we have great news for you! Read on…

NEW SORTABLE COMPARISON TABLES!

We just launched four interactive product summary pages to aid you in comparing our fabulous product lines. The first three tables help you sort through CBD/CBG Flower, Delta-8 THC Flower, and THC-O Flower. The last listed table lets you compare our fabulous kief collection.

Since ALL of our BIG BUDS are ON SALE this month, we suggest you begin your comparisons with the top three tables listed.

YES, YOU CAN GET IT WHOLESALE!

Fern Valley Farms WholesaleThe word on the Internet is that Fern Valley Farms is consistently fair and reasonable with their retail prices. It’s part of our larger formula to deliver quality hemp products at manageable prices.

The fact is that most wholesale sellers of hemp products struggle to match or beat our low, everyday retail prices. But we know of one wholesaler who can and does beat our retail prices while offering outstanding premium hemp products.

We are speaking about our FVF Wholesale site, of course! Even better, becoming an FVF wholesale buyer is as easy as signing up for a new account. We don’t demand extra paperwork, permits, or licenses. 

(By the way, our wholesale site boasts the same super-fast shipping methods that you already appreciate on our retail site!)

Many of our wholesale customers began as retail FVF customers. Some are small informal groups that collaborate and make larger purchases which they split up once received. Others are brick-and-mortar CBD outlets that want to offer their customers quality hemp products. We even have some wholesale buyers who have their own online CBD shop; adding our quality flower and other hemp products to their inventory raises the overall credibility of their operation.

Even if you’re just curious, go ahead and register an account with us. Then you can review our wholesale pricing. After seeing the steep discounts that quantity buying offers, don’t be surprised to find some money-making ideas coming up. Or you may simply be motivated to build a personal shopping list that can stock you up for months at considerable savings!

Do you have any questions? Use our contact page to send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

PINE WALKER CBDV FLOWER

Pine Walker CBDVThis month, we take a closer look at our Pine Walker CBDV hemp flower strain. With this Indica-dominant hemp flower, you can enjoy a heightened sense of relaxation, a happier mood, and relief from physical discomforts. Its flavor is a magical blend of cream and berries hovering over a sharp pine scent.

This is the second hemp crop we cultivated last season that contains a beautifully balanced combination of CBD and CBDV. (The other CBD/CBDV crop, our exciting and popular Forbidden V, is a Sativa-dominant flower.) As a homolog of CBD, the structure of CBDV and the possible effects one can experience are quite similar. While research into CBDV is not as vast as CBD, initial results indicate that it probably offers the following wellness benefits:

  • Ease queasiness
  • Lift low moods
  • Relaxes and calms
  • Soothing properties

We are especially interested in how CBDV and CBD may work together. Our Pine Walker CBDV Flower allows you to experience this, since you find the following percentages in this wonderful hemp plant:

  • 7.48% CBDV
  • 7.7% CBD

If you like what you see so far, we urge you to try our Pine Walker CBDV Flower but do not delay. At the time of this writing (early April), the following package sizes are either low inventory or out of stock:

  • Pine Walker CBDV Flower ⅛ ounce packages – less than a dozen remaining
  • Pine Walker CBDV Flower ¼ ounce packages – less than a dozen remaining
  • Pine Walker CBDV Smalls ½ ounce packages – OUT OF STOCK

Please note that, as a “limited-edition” crop, our Pine Walker CBDV inventory is restricted to full flower, smalls, and shake/trim. It is not available as pre-rolls, kief, or treatments (Delta 8 or THC-O). But this precious CBDV hemp flower is definitely worth experiencing as an unusual CBDV/CBD hemp flower! And for the month of April, the big buds of our Pine Walker CBDV Flower are on sale for 20% OFF!

We already mentioned that our Pine Walker collection is smaller and rarer. That results in fewer reviews but the one we will share sums it all up nicely:

Thanks Ryan! We are glad our Pine Walker CBDV Flower makes you merry! We too feel a bit of a “Ho-Ho-Whoa!” after a session with this piney bud!

A POWERFUL PAIR: Α-PINENE AND Β-PINENE

If you are a terpene fan, it’s likely you are familiar with pinene. If you are really into terpene profiles, you already know that there are two isomers of pinene: α-pinene and β-pinene. In many of our hemp flower strains, you will find both of these isomers working in unison.

Usually, you will find higher concentrations of α-pinene in our terpene profiles, so let’s look at this compound first.

α-Pinene

Pronounced “alpha-pinene” and found in most CBD and CBG hemp flower strains we offer, the predominant fragrance is as you might suspect – pine. As we all know, pine is a sharp and strong smell, which is why α-pinene rarely shows up as one of the top three terpenes (in terms of mg/g). But, as with many terpenes, a little amount can perform quite effectively.

β-Pinene

Interestingly, if you find α-pinene in one of our hemp flower strains, you also find β-pinene (pronounced “beta-pinene”) lurking about (usually about ¼ to ½ of the amount of α-pinene found in the same plant). However, there are two CBD hemp flower strains – Bubba Kush and Lemon Octane – that show the presence of β-pinene without any α-pinene appearing in the lab reports. In each of those strains, the amount of β-pinene is minor but as we already emphasized, you don’t need much of this terpene to feel its effects.

Finally, it should be noted that neither of our CBG strains (CBG White or Sour G) contain α-pinene nor β-pinene in their terpene profiles. This is not surprising, as CBG strains are known for their milder flavor and fragrance, whereas these two pinene isomers are equally famous for their strong and sharp smell.

Fragrances, Flavors, and Benefits

Since α-Pinene and β-Pinene are both isomers of pinene, they are found in the same plants and trees and share common fragrances, flavors, and benefits. Here are some common plants and trees where pinene resides:

  • Basil
  • Dill
  • Evergreen Trees
  • Parsley
  • Pine
  • Rosemary

As for tastes, pinene is noticeably present in the following foods and herbs:

  • Basil
  • Dill
  • Hops
  • Lime Peel
  • Orange Peel
  • Pine Nuts
  • Pine Resin
  • Rosemary

Finally, pinene has a reputation for offering the following wellness benefits:

  • Easing Discomfort
  • Improved Focus
  • Lifting Low Moods
  • Mental Acuity
  • Soothing Properties

Pinene terpenes may not top the list in any product but their presence is certainly felt in a broader terpene profile.

TERPENE LOVE!

If you don’t yet know, let us declare it now. 

WE LOVE TERPENES!!!

We believe terpenes to be as crucial to overall effects as cannabinoids found in hemp plants. That’s why so many of our products provide terpene profiles as well as cannabinoids potencies.

And you can find our terpenes in more products than our hemp plants (where they naturally grow). You will find those aromatic and influential compounds in other products, including concentrates, tinctures, capsules, and lotions.
