Just ten years ago, cannabis harvests came down in utter secrecy. Nowadays, the best growers market their finished crop—like a 24/7, global, online Fashion Week.
This month, millions of cannabis plants stand camera-ready in the fields for a final close-up. Social media offers the global forum to experience the joy of the annual cannabis harvest. Scroll through the more than 27,000 photos tagged #croptober on Instagram. You’ll see backyard harvests, mega-harvests, biodynamic harvests, and barely-made-it harvests. Bask in the vicarious joy of a year’s work come to fruition, or share in the defeat as mold, rain, wind and fire dashes farmers’ plans.
If you’re harvesting, or see something cool, make sure to mention @leafly on Instagram. If we ❤ what we see, we’ll feature you as one of the Official Days of #Croptober at Leafly, which you can check out below!
