This gift to cannabis aficionados is what Phoenix New Times found when Giving Tree Dispensary recently gave a tour of its cultivation and processing facility, and new retail shop. The boutique cannabis company sells its own strains alongside bigger brands in its store, claiming its niche is the high quality of its top-shelf products, like Katatonic Terps on the Rocks and Kindred THCA capsules. Its grow ops seemed to reflect the desire to be one of the best. The cultivation center was bursting with near-perfect-looking plants. The pre-harvest batches were lush with sticky buds.
