We believe that our lives are defined by moments that stand out from the rest.
Moments where you break out of your day-to-day and experience something truly worthy of the word "awesome".
This spice of life comes from all four corners of the Earth, and cannabis is no different.
That’s why we look across the oceans and to the overlooked parts of our own nation to find those rare strains and cannabis experiences that can only be described as…exotic.
How We Cultivate
We aim to specialize in cultivating rare, exotic and hard-to-find strains from across the globe.
*Respecting Strain Purity*
Instead of cross-breeding whatever strain we feel like, we carefully breed pure strains from their original source to artfully create new, and unique varieties.
Tivus's founders have over 20 years of cannabis cultivating experience.
We use only the best, pharmaceutical grade nutrients – they’re environmentally friendly and contain no chemical additives.
Thanks to our hydroponic system, we’ve drastically reduced our water usage by up to 75% and, overall our operation produces almost zero waste.
We use only reverse osmosis water that is 100% pure before we add our nutrients.
