A Conversation with Virgil Grant, a pioneer of the legal cannabis industry, a medical cannabis dispensary owner, cultivator, manufacturer, and civic advocate

Rancho Cucamonga, California (The Hollywood Times) 04/29/2021

Virgil Grant’s California Cannabis features all organic specials for the international 420 cannabis holiday that was celebrated on April 20 — the Handcrafted Canna-gar, Sun Brewed Tea, and Drippin’ J.

The items are available at California Cannabis’ three locations in Los Angeles. Visit the company website,https://www.californiacannabiswc.com/, for more information.

The California Classic exclusive, all organic and cannabis-infused Sun Brewed Tea ($25) is one of the company’s top sellers. It is sold in an insulated, double walled stainless steel flask that will remain cold for several hours. “It’s made hippie style, old school,” Grant says. “It’s an amazing tea. It’s spring time and with summer coming up, it’s a great refreshment that will have you feeling good.”

“There is truly a great deal to learn about the cannabis world and I truly enjoyed learning about the valuable medicinal uses of cannabis from treating pain, stress, PTSD, eating disorders, arthritis, knee joint pain, CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), bipolar disorder, cancer, dialysis, and more.”  Judy Shields, The Hollywood Times

Virgil Grant said, “I’ve dealt with so many people who have come through my business. I advise them on the best products to use. We have a huge medicine clientele.”

In coming months, Grant, who is one of six Black Cannabis dispensary owners in Los Angeles, will be announcing his expansion plans, a new strategic partnership, and latest political efforts in support of social equity for business persons of color in the space.

The 30-year cannabis veteran, who is a cultivator and manufacturer, also played a vital role in the authoring and passing of Measure M, the Los Angeles proposition passed in 2017 that gave the City Council jurisdiction to regulate licensing, selling, taxing, and enforcement of the business of cannabis.
