California Street Cannabis Company is the best Cannabis Dispensary in San Francisco, and we owe a large part of that to the brands that we carry. We research, interview, and sample every product we carry. Making sure that if it isn’t something we wouldn’t consume ourselves, we won’t put it on the shelves. You can be confident when you shop at our store, every product we have is the best California Cannabis has to offer.
One of the brands leading the way, and doing so in a powerful way, is Brother David’s. Cultivators of sun grown Cannabis Flower straight from the best place in the United States to grow Cannabis, Northern California.
Not only do ALL of the proceeds of Brother David’s sales go directly back into regenerative farming practices, fair pay for their employees. Brother David’s is also a driving force for creating the most sustainable and true to plant farming practices possible.
Brother David’s is also Sun + Earth Certified, as they take even further measures to ensure farmers, the soil the beautiful plants they grow in, and the employees who grow them are being treated with love, intention, and sustainable farming and curing practices.
