Planting Trees
for future generations

LAKE GRADE is part of the Napa Valley Fumé family of brands founded by Eric Sklar (CEO) and Elissa Hambrecht (COO). The Fumé team has the combined experience of over 70-years as entrepreneurs in the restaurant, winery, cannabis, retail, and technology industries.

“LAKE GRADE was a joy to create on our farm, which is situated in Lake County and the entire team dug deep to get this premium quality product to market. We are very proud of the first production run of flower and have already approved a second run based on our sales to date, which have exceeded our initial forecasts.”

– Eric Sklar, CEO and Co-Founder, Napa Valley Fumé.

California Born + Raised

Picking Lake County as the birthplace for GRADE’s first product was an easy decision.

As certified by the State’s Air Resources Board, Lake County, CA has the cleanest air in California and an abundance of spring water. By using natural spring water instead of piping in water, the LAKE GRADE cultivation team is able to reduce its environmental footprint.

These values of sustainability and social consciousness are central to our company and our mission – Planting Trees for Future Generations.

We grow our trees under the big, blue, beautiful skies of Lake County, which has the cleanest air in all of California

We feed our trees pristine and pure spring water which occurs naturally on our estate.

Our soil is nutrient-rich and all organic.

Our Master Grower has three decades of experience growing premium cannabis.

Guaranteed good times

From seed to harvest, LAKE GRADE’s beautiful buds come from stunning trees that are tended to with old school TLC and harvested at their THC production peak. They are rack-dried and hand-trimmed using the ‘rule of thumb,’ meaning each bud that becomes a LAKE GRADE 1/8th is the size of a thumbnail (or larger) because the team at LAKE GRADE believes that you deserve to enjoy premium, craft cannabis.
