About OM

Our Story

The Restorative Power of Plant Medicine

Woman in a bathtubOM harnesses the restorative power of plant medicine to create superior products that enhance self-care, wellness, and enjoyment for everyone. Our female-founded company was born in the Bay Area in 2008, the center of California’s Cannabis culture. We’ve been at the forefront of holistic wellness for over a decade, and central to our mission is the belief that Cannabis is a superfood. Everything we do honors the plant as a nutritionally dense, earth-born resource that has been used for millennia.

OM believes in the respectful use of our planet’s resources to help supplement a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Our formulations combine sustainably grown full-spectrum Cannabis with other curative botanicals, oils, and little else. Simply put, we believe that if you can’t put it in your mouth, it doesn’t belong on your skin.

We believe our customers deserve the same commitment to excellence whether their needs are medicinal or recreational. OM’s Cannabis infused products adhere to the strictest safety and quality standards in the country and are made with pure love. Every ingredient we select is intentional, and nothing we wouldn’t use ourselves.  The result? Formulations that feel, taste, and smell luxurious.

We offer award-winning THC infused products as well, available at licensed dispensaries in California.
