Sonoma County as a Major Cannabis Appellation

Sonoma Biologics is stepping up their efforts to build a global cannabis brand through a variety of disciplines and cost-efficiencies.  Sonoma Biologics is a producer of high quality, low cost, organic-equivalent cannabis. As part of their standard operating measures, they use organic products for both fertilization and pest management.  Sonoma Biologics produces product for flower, organic extracts for recreational and medicinal cannabis applications, ingestible, creams and lotions.

Sonoma Biologics is committed to adhering to all the stringent guidelines of both the Appellation of Origin and the OCal programs, which are designed to set California cannabis apart from that of other growth areas.

The Appellation of Origin program gives credence to the place where a product is grown. In the case of Sonoma Biologic’s cannabis, growing in Sonoma County will allow consumers the confidence of knowing our plants thrive in the same soil and environmental conditions as that of the world-famous wines of Sonoma County.  

Sonoma County has long been known as an agricultural haven for the growth of a variety of products such as apples, grapes, apricots, Meyer lemons, figs, olives and more. And, due to the ideal growing conditions for grapes, the County enjoys a worldwide reputation for numerous varietals including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel to name a few.

The soil at Sonoma Biologics main cultivation farm is Gold Ridge fine sandy loam.  This local soil is known for its production of ultra-premium Pinot Noir grapes and wines.  Some of the most coveted Pinot Noirs produced in California are neighbors.  The company believes that this soil, as well as the local microclimate, are major factors that contribute to the high quality of this appellation.  “Participating in the CDFA, the California Department of Food and Agriculture, will ensure that customers who see the Sonoma designation on a product label, will instantly understand they are getting the highest quality, sun grown, natural, pure product “says Paul Caracciolo, CEO of Sonoma Biologics. “For 4 years running, our cultivated product has passed the stringent state of CA laboratory quality control tests for purity”.

In MJBizDaily, Rex Stults, vice president of the Napa Valley Vintners Association, talks about the benefits of associating the California wine regions as having the same growing benefits for cannabis. “If you develop a reputation for having a delicious, high-quality product, then the name of the region becomes synonymous with the product,” Stults said. “The product has to be good consistently year after year.”

Another parallel from wine that the cannabis industry might consider – farm tours to taste the product and see where its grown (

Sonoma Biologics is also prepping to certify with the State of California’s comparable-to-organic cannabis standards. The OCal Program will ensure that cannabis products bearing the OCal seal have been certified to consistent, uniform standards comparable to the National Organic Program.

By participating in these programs, consumers and manufacturers will be assured of the quality of product being produced. These programs will also allow Sonoma Biologics to claim “Sonoma” place of origin for marketing and branding purposes, thus building on the global awareness of Sonoma County that has been paved by the grape/wine industry.
