Lowell  Herb Co. grows their flower organically, naturally, offers their farmers proper living wages, and is looking to hire people who have recently been pardoned for non-violent cannabis crimes in California.

Their story dates back to 1909 when William “Bull” Lowell was jailed:

“In the spring of 1909, William “Bull” Lowell began growing what was called Indian Hemp on his farm on the central coast of California. Henry J. Finger took a dislike to Bull’s “marijuana being smoked by the wrong kinds of people”. Finger conspired to outlaw cannabis and later passed the 1913 Poison Act. Bull believed in a man’s right to smoke the dried plant and enjoy its benefits. When the stubborn Bull refused to stop growing his beloved plant, Finger shut down Bull’s farm and later threw him in jail.

Today our community of family farms honor the great Bull Lowell’s tradition of growing cannabis naturally and with a deep love and respect for the plant.”

Lowell’s dedication to empowering the community, preserving purity, and delivering organic cannabis is a responsible take on farming. Supporting the Social Equity and Reparative Justice effort is a commendable move that the company has taken to strengthen the community.

They will be hiring full-time employees, interns, and providing training workshops across California. Head to their site to apply!
