Originally the majority of the marijuana was grown outside in the prime conditions of northern California, where there is enough sun and rain to grow redwoods, the tallest trees in the world. Years of police attention including the use of helicopters in the more rural areas have pushed much of the growing indoors. Because of the controlled conditions and the decades of refining strains such as "Trainwreck", Emerald Triangle marijuana is known nationwide for its quality.

A popular way of showing that you are from or know of the Emerald Triangle is having three dots tattooed on the top of your hand between your thumb and pointer finger.
