Our Cannabis Values

We believe that marijuana is a natural, therapeutic plant and all adults who need or want it, deserve access. We believe that it can help heal, that it brings people together and is an economic driver that is good for communities across America.

We respect the history of cannabis and the struggles of people to grow, sell and make a living from this plant.

We believe that there is an opportunity to develop marijuana brands that appeal to a broader segment of the population. As legalization spreads and competition grows, this becomes more important.

We believe that cannabis should be legal for both medicine and personal wellness.
