The legend of 420 goes all the way back to Fall of 1971 in San Rafael, CA. It begins with five homies (Dave Reddix, Larry Schwartz, Steve Capper, Mark Gravitch and Jeffrey Noel) from Marin County, CA named the Waldos. One of the five Waldos had a friend whose brother was in the Coast Guard. That brother had been growing lil’ patches of cannabis in secret for years on the Point Reyes Peninsula. For some reason, the cadet got spooked that he may be caught; so instead of harvesting his last patch, he gave the Waldos a treasure map to where the patch was located, along with permission to keep… Read more
People are in hot pursuit of a good night’s rest as demonstrated by the growth in global market share for sleep aids, which is expected to reach $84.9 billion by 2021, according to studies conducted by Business Communications Company (BCC) Research Inc.

Brief History of 420 In 1971, a few high school students in San Rafael, California (just outside San Francisco) would meet at a statue dedicated… Read more
It started with one plant. Let’s go back, way back, way before the days we partnered with our favorite beer company, Lagunitas, to create a vape cartridge that tastes like beer. Way before the days of coeds getting cross-faded. We’re talking around 27 million years ago. Oh yeah, that far back. Around that time, cannabis and hops (humulus) started evolving from one common ancestor into two species. Today, we call that plant family “Cannabaceae.” The two plants still have a lot in common, both have jagged-edged leaves, have many of the same terpenes, offer benefits, have similar seed and… Read more
The process of distillation has been practiced for many centuries. Similar to producing spirits from fermented grain, we can distill our cannabis. Starting with a solution containing cannabis we want to isolate, we then apply heat until the desired ingredient evaporates, capture and isolate it in another container, then let it cool until it condenses back into a liquid, separated from unwanted additives or impurities. Here’s what that process looks like: Step 1: The first step in our distillation process is to decarboxylate our winterized cannabis oil. We start… Read more
