What do you wake up in the morning thinking about?

My first thought in the morning right off the bat is that… I’m thankful for another day, next what flavor am I going to taste, and what business needs to be handled!

Who is your favorite extract competitor?

Moxie. Give credit where credit is due.

What’s the most important question facing the cannabis business right now?

I think we all know the golden question, why is it not legal and why are the feds still raiding these dispensaries, shutting them down but have no problem eating their edibles on camera! Who are the real fucking criminals!!?? I’m sure it wasn’t the lady in the wheelchair or the patients with the Recs! No it was the feds that bust in there with their guns drawn & shut it down, talk shit about them on camera, and eat the shop’s edibles. Lames ! Legalize !!

Where can people find your product?

You could find our concentrates in Southern California, multiple deliveries and storefronts.
