The Evolution of Evolution

The foundation on which Evolution started was to help those who were ill or in need of a different kind of “medicine“ outside of the medical establishment. We all know someone who suffers with their mental well being, physical pain or both. Those who may be lucky enough to find relief often begin a struggle with the effects of prescribed opioids.

Fast forward to today and you will find we have evolved from a small grow into a vertically integrated, multi-tiered operation, growing the best flower and making the cannabis industry’s best gummies.  Along our journey, our team has evolved around incredibly talented professionals who have made Evolution what it is today. Together, it is our mission to cultivate cannabis that brings its healing power, both physically and emotionally, to those in need.

Why We Grow

We know many people rely on flower for their medicine or to improve their quality of life and that’s why we take pride in the plants we grow. Here at Evolution, we control every aspect of our plants life cycle using state-of-the-art hydroponic grow systems. We do the hard work so that our plants can do their job of improving quality of life for our customers. How do we know this to be true? Because cannabis has been used medically for thousands of years.

Our Motivation

There are two life-changing moments that have motivated us to build Evolution.

A caregiver and close friend once suggested that my dad, who had been recently diagnosed with cancer, try his mom’s “magic” cookies. The cookies, along with some flower, blew the doors off the “ditch-weed” my dad knew in his younger years. As a result of this “new medicine,” Dad was able to get off pain pills and stay comfortable for months until he passed. This had our family tossing around the idea of diving into the cannabis industry to offer help to those in need.

It was only after a near-fatal event that we got the push we needed to go all-in and start Evolution.

Our friend was involved in a near-fatal motorcycle accident. Watching him struggle in the following days and months, we suggested the same “magic” cookies and flower my father used to manage his pain. Again, we were amazed to witness first-hand how cannabis worked miracles. Today, our friend is alive and well… working with us at Evolution.
