Cultivating health, happiness and higher consciousness for people and planet….
We believe cannabis to be a powerful vehicle for positive change. We’re committed to helping define a culture of well being by serving the needs and desires of health-conscious adults looking for an even deeper level of purity and quality in their cannabis as they’ve come to expect in their organic food and fine wine.
Our portfolio of award-winning products utilize whole plant intelligence from cannabis cultivated with regenerative and deeply organic principals using nothing but seeds, sun, soil and love.
For us, it goes far beyond “just getting high.” Our products are formulated for daily use with the greatest attention spent on highlighting the most balanced flavor and overall effect.
In a sea of companies who favor quantity over quality and bottom line profit at all cost,our Quality Standards have been put in place to support the spirit and greatest therapeutic value of this sacred plant medicine.
These standards offer qualitative decision points to help you navigate this complex industry and preclude us from carrying the vast majority of the products found on the market today.

“Just like a great meal or a great bottle of wine, balance is the ultimate definition of quality. And as with most things, exceptional cannabis is as much about the passion, intention, and love that went into its creation, as it is about ingredients.” — Alicia Rose, Marijuana.com
Established in 2015, we’re committed to promoting health, happiness and higher consciousness as the new culture of living well. We’ve supported the healing journeys of thousands of people, and have extensive first-hand experience about the extraordinary therapeutic value cannabis, in its highest expression, has to offer. We see the dangers of mass production, industrialized ingredients and unsustainable farming methods for both people and planet, and how these outdated processes preclude the greatest value of medicinal plants.
It’s our hope to showcase the profound nature of plant medicine and to provide a choice for conscious consumers who see the benefit of a holistic approach to health and wellness for their own benefit and that of the natural world as a whole.
