OGEN’s facility is located right in the heart of Downtown Calgary. OGEN was built on the foundation of being one of the leaders in the Craft Cannabis market. To achieve this, the folks at OGEN do things differently, to meet their own high standards.
At OGEN, it all starts with Pheno Hunting. In short, Pheno Hunting is where a grower will hunt through hundreds of different plants looking for phenotypes with particular traits. Every grower has their own checklist as to what they are wanting, but some general things they look for are the aroma, the potency, terp profile. At OGEN, the phenotypes are followed closely, eventually they are narrowed down with only few being promoted to becoming the mother plant.
FOR THE LOVE OF WEED
Clones are then taken from the mother plant, and placed in a controlled environment to give the best possible results in the veg room. Not all will make the cut, as the growers are looking for consistency with roots, nodes and symmetry. The clones then make their way to the flower rooms. OGENs flower rooms are intentionally small, to allow the environment to be totally controlled to the needs of each plant. It also allows for the growers to be hands spreading the love to every single plant.
Once the plants are harvested, OGEN starts the process of drying and curing the plants. As expected, OGEN has their own way of doing that – by hand. They hand dry their plants to protect alllll those trichomes, then they hand trim every single bud. Seriously. Every. Single. Bud. Lastly, the team slowly cures their flower to ensure they reach the depth of every flavour possible.
