Big Sur is the Birthplace of Modern Cannabis

Many in the cannabis industry believe that Big Sur is the birthplace of modern cannabis, so much that there’s a whole association of farmers dedicated to it.


  1. I and my husband Jonathan Riester who was the early road manager of the Grateful Dead brought the seeds that became Big Sur Holy Weed from the mountains of Tepic in the mid 60's. Before that, there was no sinsemilla. Patrick Cassidy grew the seeds we brought back along with others of our Big Sur tribe, up until now, some 50 years later we are finally able to come out of the shadows into the light. JR also brought the LSD straight from the chemist to Big Sur, thank you, ​lord!
