Destiny on Linked-in

Destiny began exploring the world of Medical Cannabis in 1999 as she was attending Humboldt State University. Growing in Humboldt county was a special experience due to the concentration of growers in the area. Many growers allowed her to photograph their private gardens and interview them about their genetics and grow strategies.

This lent the ability to learn rapidly from everyone in the community. She spent time teaching and encouraging growers to use biological and environmental strategies especially in their outdoor gardens. Destiny did outreach helping growers create patients' collectives to help to protect them legally. She began breeding for herself and neighbors in 2004. Then in 2009 she started traveling to Europe to learn about feminized breeding. From here she assisted in the feminization of many popular strains that were once clone only strains.

Since then she has witnessed a wonderful explosion from backyard plants to the current expansion of acreage we are enjoying today.
