We are a born and raised, Florida cannabis company laser focused on growing the best flower in the industry.

By building a state-of-the-art indoor facility with specifically dedicated spaces to grow flower for cure and extract, we were able to act on relationships formed with brands having the highest quality standards.

Meet Preferred Gardens

Preferred Gardens was founded by David Polley in 2015 and he has been cultivating since 2005. Preferred Gardens was 
prominent in the medical market long before legalization and remains a legacy cannabis brand; family-owned and
 operated with absolutely no investors. Preferred Gardens specializes in large-scale, mixed light greenhouse production
 and indoor cannabis cultivation. The Preferred state-of-the-art operations focus on culture, quality control, consistency 
and one-of-a-kind affordable strain selections. Currently the Preferred library proudly houses over 260 strains that have
 not been purchased from nurseries, rather have been bred or pheno-hunted from seed. And this is just the beginning.
 Preferred has its sight on world-wide sales with both mixed-light and indoor cannabis products, introducing multiple
 new strains each year. When you talk with David you quickly understand his genuine love for the plant. He is obsessed 
with his craft and serving the countless people who continue to be helped by the Preferred cannabis offerings. The 
Preferred family sends heartfelt thanks for your continued support of Preferred Gardens.
