We are incredibly proud to be part of the one of the first recreational cannabis sales in California yesterday at Berkeley Patients Group, as reported in this Cannabis Now article. Even better is the fact that it was from longtime activists Chris Conrad and Mikki Norris. This was the day that they, and countless others, have been fighting for for years- a day that many said would never come to pass. Let this historic time be an inspiration and a reminder to us all to never give up on our dreams. With increased access comes a new opportunity for all of us to discover this plant’s greatest benefits for ourselves, for our communities, and for our planet. We begin this year in gratitude for all the lessons and gifts of 2017, and also in great excitement for all that is to come.
