The OLCC is making growing cannabis more rigorous. They now require cannabis farms to notify them when they are harvesting the plant. The OLCC or the Oregon Liquor Control Commissioners can also drop by the farm whenever they like.

Tim Winner the President of Shadowbox Farms says "It's very important to me when i came on that we treated this like a legitimate business. It's very important to me and to our whole company that we view the OLCC as a partner and not as an adversary."

Ryan Christy the Director of Operations at Shadowbox Farms says "The regulations are in place are put there for a good reason you know it's intended to keep us on the up and up we all want to operate within the legal perimeter and see cannabis elevated in it's position."

Shadowbox Farms does everything right here on the farm. From growing it, drying it and packing it.

Ryan Christy says "We would all love to see federally legalization and the path to that is thru excellent regulation and make sure that everyone is comfortable with the way that it's being managed."

The OLCC is also very new to cannabis. They normally focus just on alcohol.

Tim Winner says "We try to help them and i think the changes that they made and it's been a learning curve for them too you know the voters voted for it and it was kind of dumped on their lap and now they are trying to figure and we are all trying to figure it out."

Being so new a lot of aspects of growing cannabis is still unknown. It is constantly growing and changing.

Ryan Christy says "If they don't know an answer they will find out for us."

Shadowbox Farms says it has a great crop this season and is still working to get it all harvested.
