About Herban Industries
Various studies have suggested that cannabis may be useful for those suffering from chronic pain, multiple sclerosis spasticity, sleep disruption resulting from neurological disorders, and cancer-related nausea and pain. We look forward to the execution of state-of-the-art double-blind studies that evaluate the anecdotal accounts of the benefits of cannabis.
Herban Industries employees span the gamut of cannabis enthusiasts to those with no cannabis experience. We share in common the passion to deliver safe, reliable products to all Americans. Please contact us for more information.
Herban Industries is dedicated to the safe use of cannabis products by adults. Studies and traditions in other countries have suggested that cannabis may help individuals suffering from various conditions. In the United States, due to a campaign to equate cannabis consumption with immoral behavior, government undertook a “war on drugs” that continues at the federal level to this day.
Laws proscribing the distribution and use of recreational drugs in general, and cannabis products in particular, have frequently targeted racial minorities in our society. The Drug Policy Institute observes that :
The first anti-opium laws in the 1870s were directed at Chinese immigrants. The first anti-cocaine laws in the early 1900s were directed at black men in the South. The first anti-marijuana laws, in the Midwest and the Southwest in the 1910s and 20s, were directed at Mexican migrants and Mexican Americans. Today, Latino and especially black communities are still subject to wildly disproportionate drug enforcement and sentencing practices.
We at Herban Industries believe that penalties for cannabis have largely been established for political reasons, not for purposes of protecting the health and welfare of Americans. We believe that the criminal justice system has been used unjustly as a tool of these political objectives. Despite clear evidence that rates of cannabis use are largely similar across racial and ethnic groups, it is well established that our “war on drugs” has disproportionately incarcerated persons of color. We follow in the footsteps of pioneers, like NORML, who have advocated just treatment of cannabis users.
Growers of cannabis and medical dispensaries have also struggled to deliver products made legal by the State of California in 1996 and other States subsequently. We believe that growers and dispensaries should be paid fair prices for their services, and should enjoy profit margins consistent with other agricultural products and specialty retail operations. Neither should be targeted by law enforcement agencies unhappy with the change in cannabis regulation.
Herban Industries operates in strict compliance with all state laws governing the growing, manufacture, and distribution of cannabis products.
Our Executive Vice President of Regulatory Affairs serves as our Chief Compliance Officer (CCO). Our CCO’s legal team tracks both current and proposed legislation in all the states that we operate.
All of our products conform to the most stringent standards proposed by the States in which we operate regarding pesticides, solvents, and microbiology. None of our products is shipped across state boundaries. All products are grown, manufactured, and tested in the states in which they are sold.
