Stirring the Pot with Om Edibles: How This Female Driven Company is Defining Legal Cannabis

Here in California, the headlines are dominated by news of multimillion dollar acquisitions, corporate cannabis carpetbagging, and an uptick in law enforcement against this allegedly legal plant.

We feel that our grassroots approach, rooted in the struggle of advocacy and reform and fed with years of acquired knowledge could yield a highly beneficial future for society when it comes to cannabis.
