We are intentionally small by design. The founders of this company are entrepreneurs who originally started small and ended up operating large cannabis operations. While it was gratifying to grow those businesses, we strayed too far from our roots-our love of growing great flower. We sold our big business in 2021.
With some money in our pockets, we rounded up like minded individuals and founded Brilliant Buds, a company with one mission-Grow the best flower and share her with the world! In early 2022 we put into action our passion to grow the perfect flower that draws out the maximum terpene profile while maintaining the integrity of that beautiful bud.
Since we are small and produce small batch quantities, we distribute our product through a select few dispensaries. Please visit our partners and check out the availability of our limited releases.
We built and now operate a small cultivation facility in Bethel, Maine. We have carefully selected our cultivars based on the experiences of our discriminating team. Each variety will be unique, however all will have the smell, taste, bag appeal and THC levels that our team members would purchase themselves.
We are proud to provide an incredible team of people to serve you.
