The Pot Factory was founded on a dream and a lofty goal: to consistently provide a high-quality, diverse product line to our customers, build strong collaborative relationships with our retail partners, create a team approach in our production facility and in doing so, be a positive force in the development of the cannabis industry and our community.
Jordan Barrett has been a Bellingham local since 1989, after moving here with his family from Albuquerque, New Mexico. His experience as a grower began in 2008 when he started growing Medical Marijuana and selling his product to various dispensaries which eventually led him to apply for a 502 license. Now he is the owner/operator of The Pot Factory where his focus has been on growing premium cannabis and providing medicine for local patients. When he is not growing some of the states finest cannabis, Jordan enjoys spending time with his sons shredding up at Mt. Baker or being out on the water exploring the islands.
Jennifer Zeri moved to the area from the mountains of Colorado in 2014. She is the Vegetation Room Manager and oversees the cloning and transplanting of the thousands of plants that get their start at the Pot Factory. She enjoys caring for the tender clones through their stages of growth and watching them turn into plants and eventually maturing to full bloom in the flower room. The high CBD plants can be challenging to grow but she is dedicated to nurturing them so that people who need them can receive their medicine from these exceptional plants. When not at the farm, Jennifer enjoys exploring the mountains and islands of the Pacific Northwest.
The Pot Factory produces a perpetual harvest, meaning we clone, transplant, transfer, harvest and process every week.
About 250 plants are cloned each week. They spend 10-14 days in an Ezclone hydroponic system and then go into 4” cups with a coco/pearlite blend for about another two weeks. Then they are transplanted into two gallon pots and stay in vegetation for 2-3 weeks. During this time they live in an 18 hour daylight cycle and are treated and pruned frequently to ensure maximum growth and multiple tops.
When the plants have finished their vegetative state, they are placed into an HD Growbox, a 4x8 cart on wheels, and six of the boxes are moved into the flower room. There they will live in a 12 hour daylight cycle under Nanolux double ended high pressure sodium lights. Again, the plants will be treated and pruned for the next eight weeks to ensure maximum quality.
Finally, once at the end of the growth cycle, the plants will be cut down and the big leaves will be removed by hand. They then go into a climate controlled room where they dry for 5-7 days. The plants will then be hand trimmed by our skilled and caring crew, and then left to cure in a quarantine room for up to two weeks.
A sample of each strain is sent off to True Northwest Labs in Olympia to be tested as per LCB guidelines. Then the material is made into joints, packaged as
We offer a variety of strains that we rotate periodically. We try to maintain an even balance of Indica and Sativa, as well as several choices of CBD strains.
