Pot company donates $40K of weed and opens doors to those displaced by wildfire

A medical cannabis dispensary is opening its doors and donating medicine to those displaced by the wildfires that have ravaged northern California over the last few days.

CannaCraft's AbsoluteXtracts and Be Kind Flower will donate $40,000 of medical cannabis to patients that have been evacuated or displaced by the wildfires, which has since claimed the lives of 21 people, and destroyed over 160,000 acres.

The company announced on Wednesday that it will be partnering with Mercy Wellness and a number of local dispensaries to distribute a AbsoluteXtracts vape pen or Be Kind premium flower to those affected. 

In addition to the free weed, CannaCraft is currently converting its headquarters in Santa Rosa into a shelter for evacuees and first responders. The shelter is expected to house up to 80 people and should be operation by this weekend. 

"We will continue to evaluate all of our resources including vehicles, property, facilities, equipment, and product to determine how to best serve our community during this time," the company said in a statement. 

The company reports that its manufacturing facility in Santa Rosa has not been impacted by the fires, though some employees for the company have lost their homes. 

Medical cannabis will be available at the following dispenseries:

  • Mercy Wellness in Cotati, California

  • Sparc and Peace in Medicine in Santa Rosa, California

  • Solful in Sebastopol, California

  • Emerald Pharms in Hopland, California
