Lucky Elk x Staefli Farms | Live Hash Rosin Collab

Hey Lucky Elk canna-fam! We’ve been working with our friends at Staefli Farms to bring you something special...

We’re proud to present four new strains of live hash rosin. Bred and grown here in Southern Oregon, these exclusive genetics represent more than a decade of selecting for outstanding and unusual flavor profiles. Since 2010, the farmers at Staefli have grown their craft cannabis in living soil, amongst a polyculture of diverse plants and animals.

When Tucker (Lucky Elk) and Keith (Staefli) met in 2012, they began cultivating a friendship based on their shared values and vision of land stewardship. Since then, thanks to customers like you, they’ve been able to grow their families and their businesses on those principles of organic ingredients, regenerative practices, and community outreach.

From all of us at Lucky Elk and Staefli… it’s an honor to share this plant with you, and we hope you love these small batches of live hash rosin!

We donate 10% of rosin sales to nonprofit organizations supporting sustainable cannabis cultivation and equitable access to plant medicine.

Dozicot (Zkittles x Apricot x Dosidos) is an exclusive strain from certified-regenerative breeder Staefli Farms. This sativa-leaning masterpiece entices with dank, tropical flavors that lean into ripe apricot.

Breadstix #5 (Garlic Breath x Jiffy Cake) is an exclusive indica hybrid from Staefli Farms. After years of hunting for the perfect phenotype, this cut was selected for its rich garlic and cakey gas flavors.

Papayamon is a papaya-leaning sativa phenotype of Talley Mon (Papaya x Banana OG x Dosido). The original seeds were bred by Bloom Seed Co, and this cut was selected by Staefli for its distinct flavor of creamy papaya.

Modified Grapes (GMO x Purple Punch) is an indica from Symbiotic Genetics. Grown by Staefli, this delicious strain combines old-school grape flavors with gas and garlic.

A Sustainable Approach

Our cannabis is cultivated through sustainable farming practices that prioritize environmental stewardship. These plants are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Our products are not only organic but also made using sustainable and regenerative practices. These practices include building up living soil over many years, interplanting many other plant species with our cannabis to create a beautiful polyculture environment, and only breeding with the seasons, outside full term, under the sun. By opting for organic, regenerative cannabis, you support agricultural methods that are free from harmful chemicals, while supporting the building of practices that support the pollinators, watersheds, birds, and diversity of micro and macro life, while reducing your ecological footprint. Embracing sustainability ensures a healthier planet for future generations and preserves the delicate balance of our ecosystems.

Preserving Genetic Diversity

Organic and regenerative cultivation methods prioritize the preservation of genetic diversity, which is crucial for the long-term viability of cannabis plants. Unlike conventional farms that breed for high yields and specific traits, our organic cannabis strains are more likely to offer a broader range of genetic variation. This diversity leads to greater resilience, adaptability, and resistance to pests and diseases. We specifically don’t do any pest management on the male plants we use for breeding, so that we can observe and select the plants most resistant to common pests like aphids, spider mites, and russet mites, and use those specific plants to make seeds, passing down the pest resistant traits to their offspring. By choosing organic, you actively contribute to the preservation of cannabis heritage and protect the plant's genetic wealth and health.

Enhanced Terpene and Cannabinoid Profiles

Terpenes and cannabinoids are the aromatic compounds found in cannabis that contribute to its unique flavors, scents, and therapeutic effects. Organic cultivation techniques allow cannabis plants to develop a richer and more diverse profile of these compounds. When growing for seed production, our plants are planted in real living native soil with roots connected to earth, outside full term under the sun and exposed to the natural elements. No artificial lights or plastic pots are used for our seed production. This allows the mother plants to absorb all the information possible from its natural environment, ensuring healthier and more robust seed stock down the line. The absence of synthetic chemicals ensures that the plants can fully express their natural genetic potential, resulting in a more complex and nuanced flavor and aroma. Organic cannabis seeds yield flower with robust terpene and cannabinoid profiles, delivering a truly premium experience.

Safer and Cleaner Consumption

When cannabis is cultivated using synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, residues from these chemicals can accumulate in the plant material. By choosing organic cannabis, you eliminate the risk of ingesting potentially harmful substances. Organic cultivation methods rely on natural pest control, soil enrichment, and companion planting to create a healthy ecosystem that supports the growth of the plant. This translates into a cleaner, purer product that provides a safer and more enjoyable experience for consumers.

Respecting Nature's Rhythm

Organic cultivation embraces the concept of working with nature rather than against it. Organic farmers prioritize soil health, crop rotation, and natural pest control methods to foster a balanced ecosystem. This approach respects the natural rhythm of the environment and ensures long-term sustainability. By choosing organic cannabis, you align yourself with a holistic approach that nurtures the plant while preserving the delicate harmony between nature and agriculture.

A Conversation with Tucker (Lucky Elk) and Keith (Staefli):

TUCKER: So what got you into farming?

KEITH: Well, I like to smoke weed! Back in high school, you couldn’t just go online and find all these amazing choices. If you wanted really good flower, you had to grow your own. But even seeds were hard to come by. I had a mentor who taught me how to select the best genetics from my small garden and breed for the traits that I was looking for. You had to be self-sufficient just to have seeds for the next season.

TUCKER: It’s easy to forget how lucky we are today—to have this thriving industry all around us, to have the access to the medicine. I remember buying grams of old, seedy, stemmy flower for $20. And I was grateful for it!

KEITH: Ya me too. It was pretty life-changing to discover how many different strains and phenotypes exist. I became really interested in finding new flavors that I’d never tried before, sometimes even discovering combinations that I didn’t know were possible!

TUCKER: And what about your approach to organics? Even 10 years ago, that wasn’t very popular in the cannabis. I remember meeting you in 2012 when I was strictly a vegetable farmer. In my community of food farmers and health-conscious customers, there was already a lot of information on organic growing. I was kind of shocked to discover how many of our neighbors were using premixed synthetic soils and nutrients for their cannabis plants. But you were growing your weed the same way I was growing my carrots and broccoli. You were kind of a pioneer.

KEITH: Thanks man. It was always an easy choice for me. Obviously organics are better for us and better for the planet. I value my health and my family’s health too much to compromise on that. But organics also yield better terpene production with more complex flavor profiles. It’s how you grow the best weed.

TUCKER: For sure. I always saw that with veggies. Organically grown plants simply taste better.

KEITH: Right! It’s a win all around.

TUCKER: I think another value we share is giving back to the community. For example, we both donate a lot of plant medicine to local patients. Any thoughts on this?

KEITH: Giving back is one of the best parts of being a cannabis farmer. I grow for the Oregon Medical Cannabis program, and my patients rely on these products for their daily well-being. Every year we pick a local organization that’s helping the community, and we help raise money for them. A couple years ago we donated over $16,000 to Oregon families who lost their homes during the wildfires.

TUCKER: That’s one of the aspects of this collaboration that I’m most excited about. We’re donating 10% of all rosin sales to nonprofit organizations supporting sustainable cannabis cultivation and equitable access to plant medicine. It feels like the right time to be in this industry. We’ve seen a significant shift towards products, brands, and customers who care about their impact on the world.

KEITH: We’re so lucky to be here, right now, doing this!

TUCKER: It’s truly an honor…
