Several members from the Silver Sage Wellness team recently had the opportunity to tour Deep Roots Harvest’s cultivation in Mesquite, Nevada. Deep Roots provided transportation to their beautiful facility which is about an hour and a half Northeast of Las Vegas.
Who Is Deep Roots Harvest?

Deep Roots Harvest Tour
Once the staff arrived, they were suited up in coveralls and hairnets. These suits protect the cannabis plants from microscopic pests that anyone could be unknowingly carrying on shoes or clothes.
The tour started in the mother’s room. Daily, hundreds of clones are collected from the mothers. Clones are cuttings that produce plants a-sexually genetically identical to its parent. The clones are transferred to a rooting medium and spend long light cycles growing in a vegetative state.
We then toured the grow rooms in various stages of life. Deep Roots harvests its cannabis once a week. From there the cannabis is dried. Curing is the next step in the process. During this time, the flower is left in the dark for weeks at a time and burped. Moisture is released into the air from the stems and buds, putting the flower at risk to develop mold. Burping removes the moisture.
The cannabis is then packaged and sent to stores to be sold.
Deep Roots Harvest also packages its own pre-rolls, which are filled with premium cannabis and never trim or shake. The facility also produces concentrates and vapes, which are extracted and packaged on-site as well.
Deep Roots Harvest’s kitchen makes a variety of edibles. Helix is their gummy line, which comes in Ginger Peach, Key Lime, Blood Orange, Cucumber Serrano, and Sour Cherry. Chillers are their hard candies, which are gluten-free and vegan and come in a variety of flavors as well.
They also produce the world-famous Cheeba Chews for Nevada, which come in the original flavor Indica, Sativa, Hybrid, CBD, and Strawberry, Caramel and Green Apple. You may also want to try one of their custom-blended, C02 distillate cannabis oil.
