Owner, Gage Green Group
Michael Fong, 31, is recognized as one of the cannabis industry’s most dynamic young entrepreneurs and innovators. A part of Gage Green since 2008, Michael has been toiling in the growing marijuana trade his entire short adult life, and has been a staunch advocate for liberty and freedom from government tyranny associated with its prohibition of a helpful and harmless plant, a plant he has devoted his life to understanding and using to help all humanity.
Well known in the industry, Michael is considered a top breeder in the world. He is a regularly featured speaker at all major cannabis conventions and competitions and author in the industry’s prominent magazines and publications for his cutting-edge organic cannabis growing techniques.
In addition to his many cannabis ventures over the past decade, Michael has dedicated his life to researching the science of holistic health and wellness, particularly in the plant world. Michael’s interest in health and wellness stems in great part from his own battles with medical ailments during his youth,
In addition to adopting a completely organic lifestyle, organically-grown cannabis has played a tremendous role in reversing his ailments. He now regularly writes and speaks on the therapeutic power of cannabis, natural healing, herbs, organic farming, and the overall human condition, most recently publishing the introduction to the GGG Protocols for Human Potency, A Guide for Natural Healing. Michael has developed a practical plan, methodology, and scientific research to help others who wish to reverse life-long illnesses through natural healing methods.
This work is the first in a series of publications on Michael’s study and practices of transforming humanity and increasing the potency of his beloved cannabis plants. His work is a culmination of the symbiotic relationship between plants and humans.
Michael grew up in Southern California and has grown weed in the Bay Area, Mendocino, Oregon, and Michigan. Michael has a Bachelors of Arts in Economics from the University of California Berkeley.

“The overall experience of the endless possibilities is such an exciting feeling. It’s a lottery and with Gage you seem to always win.” – @organictrichomes on Instagram
“With Gage it’s more of a rigged lottery…. you always win. Gage Green has been a company that I’ve respected before I got into cultivation ….always clean, very polite, and what I like about them is that they don’t act like the shit like most of these genetic companies. Before I knew Mike personally…. He used to answer all the questions I asked via email as well as IG. Good people and great communication skills. I can name a bunch of genetics companies that didn’t answer any questions but I’ll leave that out…” – @russianassassinboyz on Instagram, Russian Assassin Boyz, Owner of High Season Downtown LA
‘Sour Stomper began with a trip to Denver, Colorado to celebrate the legalization of recreational cannabis use on January 1, 2014. After spending two weeks sampling almost one hundred strains there was a clear standout. Grape Stomper. The grape flavors she emits are other-worldly, almost too good to be true! I had been disappointed by grape strains in the past, but after two tokes of her greasy grapey sweet mouth coating smoke accompanied by an instantaneous rush of full body relief I knew she was something special. This began the quest to find Grape Stomper genetics and introduce them into the already unbelievably good autoflower genetics created by Mitch and Tim.” – @mephisto.genetics on Instagram, Mephisto Genetics, Breeders of Sour Stomper
“Years back I was lucky enough to get ahold of some Mendo Breath clones from Gage Green and till this day has to be one of my favorite, tastiest strains I’ve ever grown. Everything was perfect about the plants… You can tell the passion Gage Green has to create the best strains out there and it shows in all their work and accomplishments. I definitely recommend anyone and everyone to try their products out, trust me, you won’t be disappointed… I wasn’t.” – @ali_sav89 on Instagram
“I met [Jeff and Mike] at Seattle Hempfest like years ago with the Probiotic Farmers Alliance and they dropped knowledge on me about mycelial growth in soil and how it benefits plants. A couple years later and I bump into them at High Times and schooled a pack of Benevolence F1s for my personal breeding project. I was so impressed with it I didn’t sell any of it haha… I’ve ran Paragon, High School Sweetheart, and some others from Gage Green Group. I admire the intention they put into their work and because of their strict feeding practices, I know the seeds come from happy plants. In an industry aimed at making money, GGG does a good job at living in their dharma and employing the best practices.” – @alexanderthealchemist on Instagram
“Why am I always running GGG? It doesn’t matter what pack or flavor you get, if it says Gage Green on it, its fuego. Whenever I have to start my garden over, I always choose a couple flavors of Gage Green Group genetics. I only have to pop half a pack because every female is a keeper. For Beginners and for connoisseur growers, you’re sure to find a long time gem. I would definitely recommend GGG.” – @nuculardonia on Instagram
“I don’t know if I can even put into words how great you guys are. I’ve been working with your seeds for five years now, and mainly the Grape Stomper OG, High School Sweetheart, and Mendo Breath. Everything you guys do you do well. You put the work in. Your not popping off untested herm genetics that are dog shit for $. You care, search, test, and it shows. If something has low germ rates, you guys always fix the problem. In fact, that’s how I got the High School Sweethearts. Anyway, you guys have impacted my life, my children’s lives, my family’s lives for the better. Odd how a tiny seed can do that.” @ryder7788 on Instagram
“I’ve been growing GGG almost from the very start. I remember back then we had to order from the U.K. sites and you considered yourself lucky to score packs because they sold out so fast. I’ve grown so many great strains from these folks and I’ve never grown anything from them that disappointed me. I’d have to say my all time favorite is Sun Maiden. It just had all the properties that make up a great strain. I just cracked a pack of High School Sweetheart. Can’t wait to see the fire that comes from them. Thanks GGG crew for all your hard work and incredible strains. Much love and respect to you all.” @dalaifarma on Instagram
“Love you guys @gagegreengroup, I got a few cuts of the Grateful Puff – best smelling cherry gas, I would recommend anyone beginners or experienced to grow this amazing plant. Love you guys, keep up the great work.” @okmedrosie on Instagram
“Grape Stomper was the first genetic by @gagegreengroup that Ii was lucky enough to be able to experience. I was taking care of one of the first rooms we flowered at Verde Natural, with 50 Grape Stomper and 80 Durban Haze. We were told it was a great yielder, everyone says that right? Week 5 rolls around and we thought it was just another strain. She was beautiful but didn’t really wow us. Then week 6 came with avengence, it was like she knew we were losing faith, she swelled up strong with trichomes glistening you couldn’t help but stare at all her greatness. And it only continued to get more incredible up to the chop, dry, and cure. Still one of my favorite strains to grow and smoke today. Love y’all!!” @growingherb on Instagram
“I first got introduced to your genetics first hand by @ryder7788. When I got some cuts of High School Sweetheart from her. After that I had to find your seeds and did even though my germ rate wasn’t great, your customer service was on point. Perfect to no end and so you sent me not just a replacement pack but an extra pack. My experience with you guys has been amazing.” @chavalon24 on Instagram
“When I first purchased the Irene Kush x Grateful Breath at the Gage Green Group booth at the 2016 Michigan Cannabis Cup directly from [Michael]. I knew the beans would be special. The booth had such a welcoming vibe. I would go on to post about purchasing the Irene cross as well as a Foo Fighter x Grateful Breath pack and within a few hours, [Michael] DM’d me and told me about a few issues that might come from the Foo Fighter cross and if I do have any to contact him and he’ll do whatever he can to take care of me. What a stand up guy and thumbs up to GGG for the transparency. Long story less long… I popped two Irene x Grateful Breath beans and found an amazing keeper that everyone I know seems to be in love with. I can’t say I’ve popped too many beans from other breeders but the fact I was able to find such an amazing pheno from two beans tells me there is more fire to be found. Thank you Gage Green Group for the amazing work. Can’t wait to see what other fire comes from you guys!” @friedsince85 on Instagram
“JC Green uses your genetics! Enough said! Top notch company through and through. It doesn’t matter if you’re producing 50 grams or 200 kgs, they cover you. From LP’s to regular cats! Gage Green Group you will always have a special place in my heart! Cheers!” @dled14 on Instagram
“Had the pleasure of experiencing the Mendo Breath for about four to five indoor harvests. I believe it was a cut given to us at the time. Some of the most vigorous and captivating plants honestly. Didn’t stretch too much, always produced, and the red, orange fade after a good flush… I can’t even explain how much I loved walking into a room of 100+ plants just reeking of warm buttermilk. I would recommend your genetics to anyone with the ability to purchase them.” – @thepolaricecap on Instagram
“So many amazing phenotypes and grown with LOVE.” – @mattsmedicinals2.0 on Instagram
“From the herb and mushroom formulas, the enlightening attitudes and class of all involved, and of course, to the high caliber genetics, produced in the highest quality conditions. Gage Green Group has been a blessing to the garden, since my introduction to them. Thank you GGG!” @soojhi_ on Instagram
“These guys got the fire and the spirit to match it! They grow some of the best bud in the whole state of Michigan, the Midwest if not in the country. Improving individuals and being passionate about the plant is what Gage is all about. Some of the best genetics and people in the fucked up cannabis industry.” @voohooclothing on Instagram
“The year was 2015. I had just moved from Seattle to CA and had yet to try a real deal batch of GSC. I was late to the hype and had only just heard rumors of it. I ordered some Thin Mints and Grateful Breath off a local delivery company as the GB was described to have similar effects and lineage of the Thin Mints. I was blown away by the Grateful Breath. Delicious notes of heavy cedar lemon fuel poured on top of cookie batter. It was everything I had imagined a good Cookie cross would be. A thick cloud of cookie dough skunk permeated the air on exhale. The nugs were absolutely beautiful with blue purple hues overlaid on spearmint green. The effects were heavenly with an enjoyable head high and sedating body high. This was my first experience with Gage Green and I have been fortunate enough to [try] some of their work. It’s no surprise to me that 2 of their strains hold spots in my top five of all time favorite cannabis strains.” @norcal.og on Instagram
“GGG is one of the best companies to work with! Their genetics #gagegreengenetics are legendary. They have been putting in the work forever and it shows with their products. Anytime I am asked for a recommendation on seeds I always recommend GGG. I was lucky enough to work with a 50 pack of Diamonds and Dust seeds from GGG a few years back and all were amazing! I was a fool for not saving any. Right now I am working with Prana from GGG and I am beyond excited for the end results! Thank you GGG for all that you do!” @elcannabis024 on Instagram
“Most imitated but never duplicated.” @spacelygenetics on Instagram
“Great customer service. When ordering seeds, some were damaged in shipping. When I reached out about it, Gage Green responded quickly and went above and beyond with replacements. Amazing genetics and stellar vibes!” @grow_more_herbs_dude on Instagram
“Have had nothing but the best and fast service from GGG Naturals. Anything seed related, they are top notch in quality and service. The mushroom formula for plants work 100%, my outdoor and indoor plants love foliar sprays and drenches. I’ve been using the Human formula for me and my family for a few weeks now in morning smoothies. Also love the jazzy vibes. You guys are miles ahead.” – @8mile_freno on Instagram
“Water in the Dust Bowl” – @blue99_n888 on Instagram
“I started growing about seven years ago. Right away I noticed GGG stood out. I’ve been following these guys since. When most others would have quit and given up after the negative stuff, Gage pressed on. Never gave up and always kept the integrity and positive vibes that are a MUST in this game.” @_saved_by_mj on Instagram
“My experience with Mike and Gage Green Group have been nothing but helpful. They have shown me love by even giving me access to these amazing genetics. I can’t stress enough the hospitality shown and I can’t wait to get everything started.” @prosser7008 on Instagram
“GGG is different. My friend has asthma and has smoked weed most of his life… he always assumed that when he smoked weed he needed his inhaler because “that’s what weed does”, and it’s true, most weed makes it hard for him to breathe. GGG is different. He no longer needs an inhaler to smoke bud, actually he breathes better. He always thought it was the weed, turns out smoking chemical ridden bs may make it hard to breathe, GGG is different. 100%.” @north_coast_cannabis on Instagram, North Coast Cannabis / North Coast Cannagars
