When you stumble across companies that elevate the industry, you follow them. Dogtown Pioneers first caught my attention with their Ray’s Lemonade brand, and when I found out they were the subject of my garden review, my heart leapt out of my chest, spun around and danced—metaphorically speaking, of course!
With an operation running out of Clayton, Washington, Ray Kinney and his team have dialed in nine greenhouses, each holding 3000 square feet of growing canopy. The remaining square footage is designated as a mix of both indoor and outdoor grows, allowing this massive facility multiple avenues of growing techniques and product lines to fully utilize the processing side of their joint producer/processor license. With a newly launched RSO Gold product, a full extract cannabis oil, the Dogtown team hopes to get more products on the market that hold multiple benefits for consumers.
While best known for their Ray’s Lemonade product line, which comes in several options of potency and flavor—and even a mix of CBD and THC—Dogtown also offers a coconut-based capsule for internal consumption. I’m a huge fan of the original Ray’s Lemonade, yet their Huckleberry flavor has stolen my attention (and taste buds). When making a quality cannabis-infused beverage, you have to start with the raw material, aka flower, which they also offer in a retail setting. Their flower strains and other high-quality products are a surefire win for the Washington recreational marketplace.
After speaking with Ray at length, I realized that this company, at its core, is a family. When I told him that I sensed this close vibe, he responded, “Dogtown is a community of people who work together,” emphasizing the comradery among employees. That attitude is reflected in their happy plants, happy employees and, most of all, their very happy customers.
