Public Relations

Building mutually beneficial relationships between the regulated cannabis industry and the greater community.

We seek to shift the public’s perception of the regulated industry to being a benefit, not a detriment to our community. We accomplish this through demonstrating the values that a professional, well-regulated cannabis industry brings to Humboldt County through its contributions of tax dollars, jobs, and commitment to social responsibility and environmental stewardship.
