The Sunboldt Grown Story
Sunboldt Grown is a licensed farm at the cutting edge of sustainable dry farming. The cannabis is cultivated beside ancient redwoods belonging to Humboldt Redwoods State Park in Humboldt County. The plants grow under the sun and without added water in Eel River flood plain deposits.
Founder Sunshine Cereceda considers herself a “terroirist” who allows for place to be expressed in her flower and hash. She harvests when the resin is fully mature and achieves lasting flavor with longer drying and curing time.

FACE OF THE FARMER: SUNSHINE CERECEDA
By cutting out the middleman and smartly branding the farm and its product, Humboldt County cannabis farmer Sunshine Cereceda wants to change the industry from within.
THE ALLURE OF WEED
Pot politics are nothing new to Sunshine, who has been cultivating cannabis on her organic farm near the famous Avenue of the Giants for many years. But the emergence of land speculators in the Emerald Triangle is threatening to ruin her bucolic buzz.
RIGHT LOCATION, SOIL STRUCTURE, DRY FARMING
Conserving water has become increasingly important for cannabis farmers, particularly those in regions facing drought, water shortages and/or municipal restrictions.
A RAW CANNABIS CULINARY DELIGHT
I believe that cannabis is a culinary experience to enjoy infused in food and paired with wine. Here I show you how to make your own cannabis-infused honey (does not make you high).
THE CANNABIS GROWERS HANDBOOK
I am honored to feature in the new edition of Ed Rosenthal’s Cannabis Grower Handbook, the definitive guide for all cultivators.
Becoming empowered by cannabis has been a lifetime spent overcoming of exploitation and extraction of the plant in the hills of Southern Humboldt.
AN INTERVIEW WITH SUNSHINE
The idea of doing it yourself set us apart. There were enough growers that we were a community. We created KMUD, the Mateel Community Center, we built schools and fire departments.
SUNBOLDT EMBODIES EMERALD TRIANGLE
For Sunboldt Grown founder Sunshine Cereceda, who plants her crops beside ancient Humboldt County redwoods, environment is everything.
SUNSHINE: TRUE OG
“Growing up in Humboldt County was magical and amazing, but I was also taught to be self-reliant and resourceful,” she says. “Now I’m just so happy that I get to take my knowledge about cannabis and put it out into the world. I couldn’t do that if I was still living in the shadows.”
DRY FARMING IN HOLMES FLAT
When Johnston transplanted her plants out of pots into the native soil in June and initially saw them suffering under the hot sun, she was terrified she’d made a huge mistake. Slowly, the plants started to recover, and by the time she harvested in October, they were full of big sticky colas.
THE SMELL OF CANNABIS
Cannabis’ smell — it’s something you either love or hate. Few people have a neutral opinion of the pungent plant’s distinctive odors. But where do these aromatics come from? Why are they there? What exactly are they? And why are they important? Learn about the world of terpenes.
THE ART OF DOING NOTHING
In this interview, I explain that a lot of my motivation is just taking ownership. I feel an obligation to make it; to be successful. I have a responsibility to represent my community.
