Our Story

Our journey officially began in 2014 with the purchase of 4.5 acres of rural commercial property in Claresholm, Alberta. The mission was straightforward: empower patients on their journey toward wellness. The reason was simple: when you’re able to offer a helping hand, it becomes your responsibility to do so. Medicinal patients deserve a Canadian cannabis producer that puts them first, which is why we dedicate 100% of our efforts to medicinal patients.

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.
