Co-founded and run by Marley Lovell, Esensia gardens produces high-quality sun-grown cannabis, cultivated with care and consistency. With a focus on proprietary genetics developed over years of meticulous breeding and selection in Mendocino, their strains have taken first place in several cannabis cups.
Co-founded by Eduardo Whittington, these presidential pre-rolls consist of top-shelf organic flower infused with premium distillate, then rolled in a hemp CBD wrap and finished with a glass tip.
True to his roots, Loud Brands founder Terrence Taylor fashioned each full-flower preroll to represent its respective city by selecting the strain that local cannabis communities love the most.
Oakland Extracts, founded and run by Terryn Buxton, is a premium cannabis extract company devoted to formulating fine quality hand-crafted medicinal quality extracts. Their slogan “Terps from the Town” is very fitting, as they experiment with a variety of local strains to create their extractions.
