Pro Farms, Almora and Deibel Bioscience of California have teamed up to donate more than $5 million worth of cannabis products to Sweetleaf Collective's patient network.
Sweetleaf Collective is a nonprofit assisting low-income patients in gaining access to medical cannabis. Affected groups include veterans, people of color, as well as HIV and cancer patients.
Pro Farms and Almora are set to donate more than a ton of state-tested and approved high-quality, California sun-grown cannabis. Deibel Bioscience of California has donated its testing services to the cause. According to Sweetleaf Collective founder "Sweetleaf" Joe, this is the largest cannabis donation for compassionate use in California history.
"With the growth of the retail cannabis industry and rising costs of regular goods such as groceries and gas, access to cannabis for low-income patients is harder than ever. We need corporate donations in addition to individual donations if we're going to meet growing demand," said 'Sweetleaf' Joe, founder of Sweetleaf Collective. "This donation will serve thousands of patients in California. There are currently over 1,000 patients on the waiting list to access medical cannabis and this donation will service those on Sweetleaf's list and more. Sweetleaf is accepting financial donations to help organize patients through PayPal as well as cryptocurrency."
"We're in business to grow great crops and do great things. We've become a renowned, family-owned, California sun-grown cannabis farming company because of this and now we're in partnership with Almora and Sunsmoke, which are fantastic, affordable and compassionate brands with a variety of excellent products," said Wil Crummer, CEO of Pro Farms. "Meaningful, philanthropic donations are a foundational aspect of our overall company ethos and in collaboration with Sweetleaf Collective, we're immensely proud to be donating so much high-quality cannabis to so many patients in such need," Crummer concluded. "It just feels so right."
Access to high-quality cannabis is necessary for medical patients, which is why Deibel Bioscience of California is donating tens of thousands of dollars in testing services to ensure high product quality and standards are met.
