Over the past year, our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing has been put to the test. In light of these unprecedented times, Noozhawk has decided to create a guide with local holistic practitioners that our readers can learn more about as we recover from this global pandemic and move towards greater wellbeing.

In this interview, Noozhawk sat down with Hannah Brand, co-founder of Autumn Brands, to learn more about the benefits of cannabis and cannabis-infused products.

Question: What is the name of your company or your practice?

Reply: Autumn stamps

Q: Can you describe which services or products your company or practice offers?

A: Autumn Brands is a licensed California cannabis grower dedicated to the synergy of health and wellness. The Autumn Brands family business started more than a century ago in Holland and today, sixth generation farmers apply the same know-how they acquired growing the best tulips in the world to pure and potent cannabis strains in the sunny coastal area of Santa Barbara County Produce. Autumn Brands prides itself on being 50 percent female owned, united by the vision of two families, free of pesticides and other harmful chemicals.

Q: How is your company or practice related to health and wellness?

A: Autumn Brands stocks the clean, sun-grown cannabis that science suggests could be a natural remedy. A holistic focus and six generations of sustainable agricultural know-how characterize the 100% pesticide-free, artisanal approach of Autumn Brands. With customer safety first in everything we do, we are a locally owned family run business that offers a wide variety of strains grown to aid in stress and pain relief, better rest, mood lift, relaxation, and more – all supported by an unmistakable PURE guarantee.

Many find relief in the natural benefits of cannabis. In fact, some doctors become aware of this “herbal earth medicine” and recommend it to certain patients as an alternative to prescription drugs.

Cannabis is made up of more than 120 components known as cannabinoids. The two most popular cannabinoids are CBD and THC. CBD is not psychoactive and will not get you high while THC does. THC-free CBD is widely recognized for its sedative effects and helps alleviate a number of health problems, including anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, among others. Cannabis products can only contain CBD, THC, or a combination of both.

Many now enjoy cannabis in a social, relaxed setting without the ill effects of alcohol: dehydration, calories, and hangovers. The additional plus is that the body reaps the positive effects such as reduced inflammation and better sleep.

Autumn Brands offers many options for the cannabis novice looking for all-natural cannabis relaxation. Products include a full selection of premium flower and pre-rolls, as well as the nourishing muscle and joint ointment that combines anti-inflammatory cannabinoids with transdermal magnesium and soothing arnica. The Autumn Brands Warrior Elixir and Thrive Elixir both come from pesticide-free cannabis flowers grown on the family farm and are an easy and discreet way to control tension and naturally improve general wellbeing.

Q: What makes your company or your practice unique?

A: We’re known for transforming decades of family farming expertise into a modern, artisanal approach to sustainable cannabis cultivation, and working to set a new standard for consumer-centric, environmentally friendly techniques. Autumn Brands offers customers an easy way to identify products they can trust for a clean, potent cannabis experience full of positive energy from a natural, truly PURE approach.

Autumn Brands’ “No Spray” policy means just that … and customers can look for the PURE Seal of Approval as the gold standard for integrative growing techniques that ensure clean, pesticide-free cannabis products that they can rely on for quality and safety. Allegedly like a person holding up the sun – a nod to the brand’s suntanned cultivation – a third eye that speaks of the healing elemental plant power, or a ladybug to represent their pesticide-free approach to allowing beneficial beetles to thrive, the PURE guarantee characterizes the product, i.e.:

● Pesticide-free, hand-grown and cared for using integrative, spray-free techniques that enable beneficial organisms such as ladybirds to live together peacefully
● The user comes first, with the safety and customer experience at the fore at every step of the process
● Grown responsibly, using hydroponic methods and natural well water in a closed circuit
● Environmentally friendly by integrating earth elements into the cultivation process, such as sustainably obtained Coco Noir fertilizer, which keeps the brand’s carbon footprint small

Q: How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected your company or practice?

A: During the COVID-19 pandemic, our business was deemed material by the state of California, which announced that medical cannabis companies (and the companies that supply them) are essential companies and therefore we were able to stay open during the national lockdown.

The health and safety of our employees was our top priority. We’ve put in place strict disinfection protocols, hired a full-time caretaker, separated breaks, and removed our carpools from the streets. In addition, we supported our employees and local business through the “Keep the Lights on” program. This program included lunch bought 2-3 times a week in local restaurants, every Friday we had The Farm Cart Organics prepare grocery boxes and supported the 93013 Fund. We were able to give something back to our community and give our employees stability in a time of uncertainty.
