The OrganicMarijuana.com Story
The aromas, the and strong earthy scents of Port Royal, infused with the sweet aromatic spices and herbs coming from the plantation kitchens, these were the constant backdrop. Freshly grown organic food, prepared in the traditional fashion.
These are the emotions and sensations at the heart of what would, in due course become The Organic Marijuana Company.
Marijuana was a constant companion to the plantation workers, and to the multitude of visitors that came each year. Many called it ‘ganja’ or ‘weed’ or ‘herb’ and it was always organic, why anyone would want to pollute the sacred plant with chemicals was beyond the locals capacity to comprehend.
Organic marijuana has always been one of the key components to the healer’s medicine kit and of course it was used in celebration ceremonies, which are marked with singing, dancing, feasting, and smoking the celebratory herb.
One thing was for certain, organic marijuana played an integral part to the lives of the local farmers and villages back in the 1960s and 1970s and for many good reasons, as Jamaica’s most famous citizen was fond of saying;
“When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.”
Discerning travellers came from around the world to experience the high quality of the sweet organic marijuana produced by the locals, grown with the spiritual conviction that comes from generations of revered respect for the healing plant. Over the years, as knowledge about the quality of the locally produced organic marijuana came to be known by an ever growing international audience, the locals increased cultivation to meet demand.
More and more people came with the primary focus being on the health and wellness tourism. One thing never changed during those early years; the method of growing, the attention to detail and the reverence toward the sacred plant. A trait the company is distinguished by and very proud of even today.
In time, when it became less plausible for the visitors to come to the locals for their supply of organic marijuana, and the interest continued to develop, the company decided to expand and sought out opportunities in foreign lands. Firstly in the United States, where the company had many friends already who had visited our shores over the decades to consume our products. There we found fertile soil for the expansion of the company and the growth to a wiling audience, one who understood and appreciated the spiritual and healing connection that the company shared with its way of cultivation and production.
Since the mid 1960's, the company, which has always been privately held expanded into many other foreign lands, establishing operations and setting up facilities to extract the oils from the plant as the healing properties of organic marijuana became highly sought after around the world.
Now, the company operates in many countries with cultivation, manufacturing and productions and imports and exports product around the world. Even with the exponential growth in Europe, The United States, South America and now Australasia, the company is always focused on maintaining the high standard of quality that has made it such a sought after brand for nearly 60 years.
