WHO WE ARE
The Emerald Exchange showcases small-batch Sungrown cultivators and the brands that source from them to the world cannabis market. We honor the tradition and heritage of working with the elements to produce the cleanest and most fully expressive cannabis, in a socially, economically and environmentally regenerative way.
WHAT WE DO
We support the small family farmers that paved the way for the cannabis industry in California who are now are in danger of being wiped out due to over-regulation intended to serve big business interests. We believe in environmentally-expressive, well-rounded cannabis that has a direct connection to the earth, and we believe in the right of the people who grow this cannabis for the community to maintain their way of life.
WHY WE DO IT
We know the intrinsic value of any well cultivated plant, and that you get out what you put in. The small farm community of Northern California has put their lives on the line for generations to cultivate true craft cannabis in the best region in the world for it. It is their heritage and legacy that has truly cemented California as the center of the cannabis universe. Our success as a state, and as an industry, depends on the success of the small farmer as we transition to a regulated economy.. We are building a community that connects these farmers with conscientious customers who understand the value of not only the product, but the people and processes that go into creating it.
HOW WE DO IT
We put on farmer’s market style events designed to create direct connections between retailers in the Southern California area and the sungrown cultivators of Northern California. These events include targeted speaker series and panel discussions, health and wellness activations, innovative products and a true sense of community and shared purpose.
