As an Alderville cannabis grower I was taken in by BS about the Alderville cannabis dispensaries supporting the local producers by testing and selling our cannabis. With the exception of the Medicine Wheel dispensary where I am employed in security, other cannabis testing labs here are too over burdened with testing their outside supply lines to have time to test local cannabis bud.
My name is David Baker and I am a cannabis grower from Alderville First Nation. Last year I gave my full support towards promoting the self regulating cannabis industry emerging in Alderville. I even allowed myself to be video recorded in my cannabis garden and during an interview made the claim that the marijuana I was growing would go towards supporting my income by wholesaling to the marijuana dispensaries. Although I succeeded early in the harvest season to sell a small amount of bud to the Totem Pole and the Medicine Wheel it been at least 3 weeks and I can’t even get my cannabis buds lab tested at 2 different labs in Alderville who all are claiming to support the local producers. Although I am still able to have my product tested by Medicine Wheel as I am employed by them which helps there is no guarantee they will buy it but they often do which helps. I am not the only cannabis grower in Alderville this is happening to but everyone I know who doesn’t operate there own dispensary are being treated this way. I am just the first one willing to go public.
As a result of claiming my income on video from growing cannabis I gave up a lifetime of government support from ODSP. I am hugely disappointed having invested over $20000 in Williams treaty money to secure a lifetime income believing the dispensaries would honour their commitment and claim around the support of local Alderville cannabis producers. So far the only dispensaries that I was able to sell some early harvest bud were Medicine Wheel and the Totem Pole. Now it’s hit and miss as there is an abundance of harvest bud around for cheap still.
Where are all the dispensaries now that I have fully harvested?
The lack of cannabis dispensaries buying wholesale cannabis buds from my supply leaves me with just one option to still be able to sell my cannabis products. The cannabis products are to include THC and CBD infused edibles as well as extracts. I am now selling cannabis flower which has been lab tested at about 20 percent for $100 per OZ. 2 strains lab tested are King Tut and Kushy Kush. Also just added I have Baker’s Dozen honey oil available for $100 per 5 gram jar. There are 9 other strains waiting to be lab tested. Results will be published on product page.
Friends and visitors please just know that I am here not simply to sell my own products but also to help other local Alderville growers sell their cannabis too. All products will be lab tested. There are several families in Alderville First Nation who grow great cannabis bud that go unrecognized. I am here to be the voice and stake our claim. Help support local cannabis growers in Alderville and buy direct from farmer. Go to cannabis products page for more information.
