Spending a day at Wave Rider provides a welcomed reminder that you can end up where you’re meant to be without ever meaning to get there. This cannabis farm has always been a family operation, and while it’s wrong to say that Drew and the team simply followed in his father’s footsteps, he always knew where to pick up the trail. Though neither of them thought it would lead to such a massive operation in the Salinas Valley. From the overall climate to individual practices, there’s nothing typical about growing cannabis on the Central Coast. Wave Rider’s operation is no different. Anything from smell and flavor to THC content and growth characteristics can be upgraded, and Wave Rider’s constant experimentation through their pheno-hunts is what helps make their products unique.
Wave Rider’s 230,000 square foot mixed-light facility was purchased in 2016 and is run by 60 hard-working, like-minded and passionate people who take pride in what they do. Forward focused, land-race lovers, gas aficionados, and yield minded, WRN is deeply invested into the future of Cannabis genetics.
