ThePineapple - Hall of Flowers Brands Roundup

Favorite Products from Hall of Flowers 2022

Another Hall of Flowers has come and gone…

For those of you who aren’t familiar, Hall of Flowers is a B2B, industry-only trade show designed to facilitate commerce between licensed brands and retailers. The show happens in California a few times a year at either Santa Rosa or Palm Springs. Hall of Flowers recently expanded to Canada as well! It’s the first show of its kind to deliver an experience that elevates the cannabis industry to a new level of cultural significance. 

I absolutely LOVE this event and look forward to going every year. I’ll never forget the first time I walked through the show… Rows and rows of booths line the exhibition halls. It’s like Disneyland for stoners. That ‘kid in a candy store’ type of feeling. 

A month later and I’ve finally gone through most of my haul, so here are some of my favorite products from Hall of Flowers Fall 2022. 

Flower: Maven Genetics ‘Blue Agape #9’ – Blue Lotus x White Runtz

Maven Genetics is an esteemed indoor premium flower brand with one of the most diverse strain libraries in the cannabis space today. Blue Agape #9 is the first strain released through their microbatch, limited edition Research and Development line. This potent Indica cross is bursting with high terpene contents and earthy, but sweet tasting notes. The deep purplish buds are encrusted with rich, frosty trichomes. The effects from this cultivar can best be described as relaxing, heavy hitting, and long lasting. Visit the flagship retail location - The Maven Store in Tarzana, CA to try this deliciously heady strain. 

Edibles: Paradise Club – Tropical Mango, Strawberry Sunshine, Pineapple Coconut 

One bite of Paradise Club gummies and I’m immediately transported to a sunny summer day on the beach. The 10mg gummies are made with the highest quality of ingredients and free of preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and coloring. This women owned brand absolutely nailed all three flavor profiles, capturing the ultimate summer vibes. Pineapple Coconut tastes just like a pina colada, complemented by a light cinnamon sugar dusting. Tropical Mango is coated with chili lime sugar and exploding with flavor from the islands. Last but not least, Strawberry Sunshine is covered in sweet vanilla bean sugar and reminiscent of your favorite childhood strawberry shortcake treat. Paradise Club gummies are fluffy, pillows of tropical goodness! You can find Paradise Club edibles at select California retailers. 

Preroll: Moon Valley Cannabis ‘Super Boof’ – Black Cherry Punch x Tropicana Cookies 

Moon Valley Cannabis, located in the heart of Sonoma County, focuses on small batch, hand-crafted indoor flower grown in living soil. Winners of the 2022 Emerald Cup ‘Environmentally Conscious Indoor Award’, Moon Valley Cannabis puts a strong emphasis on using 100% renewable energy and cultivating with sustainable practices. I was given a ‘Super Boof’ whole flower 1.25g preroll and contrary to the name, it was far from boof. I unraveled the top part of the joint and sprinkled out some of the flower for a true test of a good preroll. The fresh buds were a vibrant purple hue and glistened in the sunlight. The unique cross between Black Cherry Punch and Tropicana Cookies produced a sweet and floral aroma. The zingy flavor lingered in my mouth long after I smoked it. This indica leaning hybrid is the perfect everyday smoke; it left me feeling relaxed, giggly and creative. If you ever come across Moon Valley Cannabis, be sure to check them out! 

Concentrates: Hash & Flowers Solventless Rosin 

Hash and Flowers rosin is extracted from single source, whole plant, fresh frozen flower grown at their farm in Trinity County. This family owned and operated company has mastered the craft of hash rosin. I was fortunate enough to try two of their flavors - Honey Bananas (Honey Boo Boo x Strawnana) and Grape Jelly Donut (Birthday Cake OG x Grape Sherbert.) The Honey Bananas terps immediately reminded me of banana Laffy Taffys and filled the air with a sweet, candy aroma. Grape Jelly Donut tastes just like the name suggests; it is packed with the undeniable fruity grape flavor, with hints of fresh vanilla. I am a huge fan of fruity flavors, so these did not disappoint! I was shocked at how quickly I went through them both and can’t wait to get my hands on some more! 

Shoutout to Sugar Cones and Elevate Shasta for the cutest joint toy for my cat! Elevate Shasta is a dispensary based in the beautiful small town of Mount Shasta. If you are ever in the area, be sure to give them a visit at 401 Berry St. Mt Shasta, CA 96067.
