Daniel John aka “DJ Short” has been developing and cultivating new strains of cannabis for well over 30 years. DJ is best known for creating the legendary strain “DJ Short’s Blueberry” as well as other award winning cultivars like Flo, Vanilluna, New Berry and Whitaker Blues. He is also known for his passion for educating the public about cannabis and a distinctive style of activism for the ending of cannabis prohibition.
They call him the Willy Wonka of Pot, the Wizard of Weed, and the Cannabis Professor
The path to greatness never comes without struggle, for Daniel, the struggle inherent in his path led him to experiment with Cannabis as a young teen. His first few experiences with cannabis sparked curiosity in his young mind, and according to DJ, “One day in 1973, he bought a box of cereal that came with a plastic seed sprouter. Out of simple curiosity, he moistened the chamber, inserted a bud from his stash of Hawaiian, and watched with delight as it grew roots and a sprout.”
High Times was publishing its homegrown variety of guerilla cultivation methods in various publication releases. DJ wanted to cultivate and experiment, but knew that outdoor cultivation was out of the question. He purchased some high end fluorescent shop lights so he would be able to cultivate indoors, in secret.
One downfall to the early seventies and cultivation of Cannabis was the wide availability of rich landrace sativa genetics in the US. Not until the latter seventies did shorter, stout and robust Afghani Indica varietals became available. DJ sourced some of these new genes for himself to reduce the long winded flowering time of the Sativas, which falls around 14-16 weeks. After successful cultivation of Indica varietals, DJ discovered the relaxing and sedative nature of these hash rich Afghanis was not the same enjoyable experience as the buzzy, energetic and creative experience of the Oaxacan and Thai genetics he had grown fond of.
Hybridization was the answer. His plan, to combine the unique traits of the Sativa genetics with the short, stout and faster flowering Indicas to create a balanced, routinely easier to cultivate Cannabis plant that was an enjoyable middle ground for the end consumer.
As DJ crafted indoors in his secret garden, outside the Drug war was getting into full swing led by then President Ronald Reagan. During early 1980 national anti-cannabis rhetoric built up and spilled over, coincidentally, as the square footage of the breeding garden diminished. This reduction in square footage did not limit the abilities of DJ during cultivation but rather allowed him to hone in on and patiently seek the specific qualities he was seeking, exploring each phenotype with his nose. Cataloging which plants produced floral, sweet and fruit notes and which produced the chemical, fuel and acrid skunk notes.
DJ compares the subtleties of quality Cannabis to that of fine wines. The olfactory chart used by cannabis connoisseurs is not unlike the wine wheel. Like Sommelier, Cannabis aficionados have the ability to detect a diverse blend of aromas such as fruit and berries, grasses, teas and earthen humus, fuels and chemical notes.
“The range of flavors expressed by the genus cannabis is extraordinary. No other plant on the planet can equal the cacophony of smells and tastes available from cannabis.”
Short credits his passion for cannabis and natural propensity for successfully crossbreeding Sativa and Indica varietals into award winning hybrid strains as an inherited trait from his Romanian great-grandmother. According to DJ, she was a gypsy herbalist who cultivated cannabis and among other herbs for medical purposes, taking time to pass down her acquired knowledge and skills to her daughter, DJ Short’s Mother.
Honey and Fruit
After extended trial and error, establishing specific genetic traits and isolating terpene levels via testing with the WERC Shop in California, DJ began comparing his flowers with those that were considered above par and high-grade on the underground marketplace. Armed with this data, DJ continued to select the plants he favored most, deftly cultivated them to maturity, carefully cured the buds, and personally smoked privately for months before releasing them to friends and buyers, to ensure an enjoyable, superior quality of Cannabis flower was offered.
Before long, selective breeding led to a lineage with sweet honey and strong fruit aromas. From this line rose the now legendary DJ Short’s Blueberry. Known by name, smell and sedative, pacifying body high. Once DJ stabilized this special genetic, he sought to create an energetic, uplifting strain. This project led to Flo, which gifted DJ with the effects he was seeking.
After realizing how popular his new genetics were, he began cloning his mother plants and releasing the genes to underground cannabis growers in Oregon and California and some overseas to Europe.
It is well known that the widely revered DJ Short’s Blueberry, bred and cultivated just outside of Pendleton, Oregon is in the ancestral pedigree for most any modern hybridized varietal that includes “Blue” or “Berry” in the name.”
DJ Short’s renowned seeds and Cannabis breeding capabilities earned him a revered spot in the High Times Seed Bank Hall of Fame, which was created to commemorate “brave pot pioneers and trailblazers.” DJ was included in the first commemoration in 2007. He was spotlighted as “The Willy Wonka of Pot” in a 5,000-word tome for the website Grantland, and wrote the 2003 book “Cultivating Exceptional Cannabis: An Expert Breeder Shares His Secrets.”
2016- Daniel crafted a “letter to the Editor” of Pendleton, Oregon’s premiere media source, The East Oregonian. In this letter he wrote, ” I would very much enjoy the opportunity to help teach my community about the wonders and merits of this valuable plant that offers something beneficial for almost everyone.”
DJ Short x Kind Leaf

| ˈbudˌtendər |
An award winning budtender is a person who recreates and redefines the public perception of someone who works in a dispensary or store where medical or recreational cannabis is sold. Helping provide a perspective that these knowledgeable individuals are not just “Drug Dealers.”
Increasingly, this subculture is evolving into a group of educated professionals who have developed their unique blend of personality, style, fashion, and most importantly, their recommendations to an constantly growing and changing variety of cannabis offerings. Budtenders are educators, advisors, sales professionals and often a trusted resource or friend to their customers.
Without Budtenders, Cannabis brands do not succeed, the customers are left unaware of what makes each product and brand different from the one resting next to it on the shelf. Budtenders are one of the most important factors in public relations between communities, dispensaries and the cannabis industry as a whole.
The 2019 Budtender Awards honored these individuals, promoted their efforts and acknowledged their influence on the industry, and in the communities they serve.
Congratulations to LaRain Miller, Kind Leaf for bringing home an award, for yourself, your team, your community and Oregon!
Happy Cabbage farms introduced a higher level on Rosin method extracts to the Oregon Market. Setting the standard higher for bubble hash derived Rosin pressed extracts, Happy Cabbage extract artists craft delicious cannabis extracts from flower cultivated by both themselves and other award winning Oregon cannabis farms.
First- What is Rosin?
“Rosin” refers to a Cannabis extraction process that utilizes a combination of heat and high pressure, instead of volatile solvents, to break open trichome and squeeze resinous sap from your cannabis flower or Hash. The result is a golden, even clear, sappy or sometimes shatter-like product. If produced with proper methodology, Cannabis rosin can compete directly with the flavor, potency, and yield of other solvent-based extraction products.
Many people prefer quality rosin products over more commonly found Butane and Propane solvent extracted cannabis products. This preference comes from both non-solvent adulteration being lower in risk regarding residual solvents, as well as the ability of the Rosin method to capture rare plant essences that are often lost with the introduction of volatile solvents.
Happy Cabbage farms is a craft small-batch producer with an affinity for purity and flavor. Recently their work has been isolating extracts from strains like Tropicanna Cookies, Thug Life, Punch Breath, Purple Petals many of which are currently on the shelves at Kind Leaf in Pendleton, Oregon.
Happy Cabbage practices reservation concerning which dispensaries carry their brand. Seeking to partner with companies that put their customers and communities first, who care about quality and have the ability to represent their products for what they are.
For the past year, Kind Leaf has partnered with Happy Cabbage Farms to be the exclusive provider of Happy Cabbage products in Eastern Oregon. You can visit our Leafly Menu a see which Happy Cabbage Farms varietals we currently stock, and even order in advance for pick up.
Currently popular Happy Cabbage Rosin strains are Ice Cream Cake, Thug Life and Oregon Diesel. Come visit with one of our friendly Kind Leaf budtenders and learn why Happy Cabbage Rosin may be an exceptional choice for you.
In 2010 SoFresh farms formally began its journey to, “promote health through the regenerative cultivation and delivery of exceptional quality cannabis”. Owners Michelle and Tyson Haworth first joined the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program as Patient and Grower after Michelle’s second back surgery a few years earlier.
Unsatisfied with physicians’ constant promotion and wide acceptance of harmful opiate based prescription drugs, SoFresh seeks to cultivate and provide a more socially and environmentally healthy alternative. Their small family farm, located in the agriculturally rich North Willamette Valley, has established and maintained industry leading quality, social and environmental standards.
All SoFresh products are cultivated using minimal energy inputs; compostable and recyclable materials are given top priority. Waste is food, rain and de-humidification water is captured and stored on-site then used as the farm’s primary irrigation source. Waste indoor cultivation heat is captured to provide heat for greenhouses. Worm castings and compost combine with locally sourced nutrients and no-till cultivation techniques to ensure mineral balance and biologically thriving soil.
Plant positive IPM programs are a key protocol, the farm relies on predatory pests, fungi and nematodes for the pest management blueprint. 100% locally owned and operated, SoFresh chooses to invest in coworker education, pay a living wage, provide healthcare benefits and retirement savings for its employees while also giving back to the local community.
SoFresh Cultivation Methods
Indoor Cultivation The SoFresh indoor growing area uses a closed-loop system with low-till raised beds. They prefer to use double ended high-pressure sodium lights (HPS) but are always experimenting with new technology to promote increases in quality and yield while using less energy. The SoFresh standard is to create exceptional quality cannabis with the most efficient and bio-friendly systems possible.
Currently SoFresh utilizes a hybrid/closed-loop system with supplemental CO2, HVAC and fresh-air ventilation. During winter when it is cold outside the farmers use intake and exhaust instead of using air-conditioning to cool the room when the lights are on. This not only saves power but also replenishes the CO2 naturally. During the hot summer months, A/C is used to keep the temperature below 85 degrees which is important for keeping the more volatile terpenes from evaporating before they can be enjoyed.
Growing Greenhouse The favored growing environment at SoFresh farms is the greenhouse. There are a couple of greenhouses that are used to cultivate vegative and flowering plants. The light assist/light deprivation greenhouse produces the highest quality flowers available on the market while using less energy than a standard indoor room. There is something magical about the sun that plants prefer over only HPS or LED lights.
Tyson understands that full spectrum photo-biology plays an important part in the plants development and they have discovered plants that have the benefit of the sun and consistent HPS light when the sun doesn’t shine consistently produce the highest quality flowers at SoFresh farm.”
Sungrown Plants SoFresh farms also cultivates premium sun-grown flower that ripens under the September and October sun. These cultivars are usually available in the winter and early spring. The long Oregon summer days grow big plants and create dense, potent flowers known for their vibrant dark colors, rich smell and intense flavors. To help protect SoFresh’s sun grown cannabis from the mold creating and terpene robbing rain and dew that is often present in the Pacific Northwest in the fall. Farm hands take the time to carefully thin and train the plants before building hoop houses over the flower for the last 4 to 6 weeks of ripening.
Caring for Living Soil SoFresh farms raised beds stand about two feet high on native soil and are composed of a mixture of peat moss, perlite/bio-char, worm castings and compost as well as small amounts of other balanced nutrients. The goal is to create a synergy between the plants and the soil. SoFresh Farms believes in a “living soil” by creating an environment that is perfect for both beneficial microbiological life and Cannabis plants. Their methods begin with inoculating the plants with mycorrhizae in the vegetative stage and continuously through the beginning of the flowering cycle. Tyson uses a combination of different organic methods to feed the plants on his farm. Among them, they brew their own teas and feed the soil where the beneficial bacteria break it down and make food for the plants.
The farm is regularly featured in magazine and news articles for the company’s leading social, environmental and political practices. In July of 2014 sofresh was among Oregon’s first batch of Clean Green Certified farms, a national cannabis industry version of USDA Organic certification. SoFresh continues to lead the way in developing regenerative farming systems focused on creating clean healthy cannabis while doing good for the local environment, people and economy.
