Do not believe Cream of the Crop

Cream of the Crop had us packaging the weed they get fronted from random growers in a non humidity controlled environment, and they wonder why their stuff is always dry. Instead of paying for better conditions or higher quality cannabis, they pay for murals in their warehouse, and new flower jars to put the mids in.

This company has knowingly put seeded ice cream and wedding cake strains in the jars then renamed them "Bourbon Vanilla" and "Purple Reign." We spent an extra day cleaning it up for the obvious seeds but they were full of them.

The company also had a buyer that told us mold we had found was just the plant turning purple. They have a PHD in positive psychic energy exercises on payroll too. He would lead us in "gratefulness exercises," and shit like that instead of just giving us raises. This is what happens when you let people who don't smoke weed start cannabis companies.

The worst thing overall is the "FSO" though -- instead of getting biomass ethanol extracted and cleaning it up enough for consumption... they just source god awful distillate crude from people like heavy hitters and mix it with hemp cbd isolate until it gets to the ratio they think will sell.

Cream of the Crop even have this guy that had a lung transplant, that has been helped by FSO, as their posterchild for wellness; but when the FSO they sell went to shit he hit them up saying the last batch made him sick and they honestly told this dude, "It's probably just a different strain," and that he "might have to take more."

These facts made me feel bad to even package the stuff, knowing what they were selling it as.

    If you are whistleblowing, i would recommend leaving out wage related issues. To be taken seriously, just focus on issues that are related to product mislabeling or misidentification. We have all seen how ex employees slander places they no longer work on weedmaps. Corporate culture sucks and bosses will always surround themselves with yes men instead of paying rank en file workers more. Organize unionize get what you are worth.

    **Official Response from Cream of the Crop Gardens Partners** It deeply saddens us to see what we assume to be an ex-employee get so upset to feel the need to spread false information about our company… especially on a platform like Blacklist that continues to play such an important role in our industry. We genuinely consider the members on our team as family and strive to create a work environment with competitive compensation which, in many cases, is higher than the industry average while also providing benefits such as health coverage to ALL of our employees as well as opportunities for upward mobility and advancement. We promote from within whenever possible and building a positive culture that represents our company values of excellence, acceptance, positivity, innovation, and dependability is paramount. As with many legacy cannabis brands, Cream of the Crop has been built by a community of passionate people who care about cannabis and its valuable place in our society. While most of our flower is the handy work of our own team in Desert Hot Springs, we also believe it’s important to support the community by also working with small batch indoor growers… all of whom work tirelessly to cultivate the best possible cannabis at the highest standard for our customers. As a brand representing the highest quality cannabis, we also pride ourselves on unparalleled customer service. If anyone ever has a complaint or is dissatisfied with any of our products, they are invited to return it to the store they purchased it from for a full refund or replacement. We go above and beyond to make sure every product meets and exceeds expectations, and if there is ever an instance in which it doesn’t, we make it right. This is a core fundamental of who we are as a brand. Furthermore, all products go through full compliance testing and quality control and COA results made available at the store, by request, and will soon also be published online. We would NEVER release moldy product or any product that had the potential of harming our customers. The allegation to the opposite is just flat out false. We stand behind every one of our products, including our FSO which has helped save countless lives from cancer and other life threatening illnesses. All of our FSO is ethanol extracted and purified in a 4-stage process including ionization… sourcing “god awful distillate crude from people like Heavy Hitters,” could not be farther from the truth. Any questions concerning our lung-transplant advocate can be directed to questtocure@cotcgardens.com and he’ll be happy to talk with anyone who wants to hear his story and experience with Cream of the Crop. We aren't sure what a PhD of Positive Psychic Energy is, or if such a title even exists, but either way, we strongly encourage practicing gratitude as often as possible. We have proudly operated in the California cannabis market since 2016 and are beyond grateful for the members on our team and the many activists who dedicated decades of their lives to make this industry a possibility. Please reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns: customercare@cotcgardens.com

    This is one of the best cannabis companies outbtheir they make FSO oil for cancer that's helping people. Do not destroy them. The industries that don't want to legalize cannabis want us to destroy each other in this community. They are good people and care about getting people well. My story having personal interaction with founders

    My experience is that they are good guys, dispensaries love them and they make great products that get people well. They are like papa and barkley and care about the plant and wellness. They are in it for the right reasons. Its something that many of us with our intuitive skills just know, its the good vibe they give off. We all know the people and brands that are gunning for the money don't care about the goodness of this plant, they are not part of that group in my experience.

    I got an 8th of that bourbon vanilla and it was pretty seedy tbh. I didn't know this was supposed to be a topshelf brand. I get these jars for like 45 -50 usually.

    I love COTC flower. But...I have purchased a few eights that had tiny seeds. I also had 1 that smelled moldy. I still buy this brand but it upsets me to pay top shelf price when they are well aware of these seeds. Not cool at all.

    I’ve bought ~10 8ths (5 strains) between 2 dispensaries and 2 deliveries in the SJ area. From that to reference, COTC has been consistent with delivering some of the strongest genetics that I’ve experienced from flower.
