Meet GrowGuru Sue Carlton
Sue Carlton, also known as the ThirdEyeWitch, has been cultivating cannabis while undertaking a degree in Health Studies in Health Science from Portland State University: “I’ve gone from being a Chocolatier at Grön a medicated chocolate company in 2016 to 2017 to eventually growing under the mentorship of Robin Cordell, owner & head grower at Oregon Girl Gardens,” she tells Eddy.
Oregon Girl Gardens is a woman owned recreational cannabis farm in Oregon City, Oregon, and products can be found at recreational dispensaries in Oregon.
Find the farm on Instagram @oregongirlgardens for every day life on the farm. “My favorite strain,” says Sue, “is Agent Orange. The aroma is orgasmic so to speak, bursting with smells of citrus as if it was an orange starburst which is a favorite candy of mine. One touch of Agent Orange against the skin leaves a lasting fragrance. My growing superpower would be the ability to absorb & use knowledge gained.”
