California Extract Company Gives Free Pot to Cancer Patients
Non-profit and community programs often spring up when there’s a gap to fill, and with the cannabis industry as young as it is, there are still a lot of gaps.
Shelter from the Storm, a project launched by Jetty Extracts, is doing what it can to fill the cannabis treatment gap.
Jetty, an Oakland-based extract company, launched the Shelter Project to provide free medicinal cannabis oil and other services to California cancer patients who register with the program.
From pretty early on in the process, it was clear that philanthropy should be incorporated into the business model, said Matt Lee, co-founder of Jetty Extracts. They began by giving oil to people they knew who were suffering from different ailments which would benefit from cannabis as a treatment plan. Soon after that, they realized they wanted to expand to all of California.

You never forget your first or your best. Right?
A few months ago, I was discussing the cannabis industry with Brendan Hill, drummer of Grammy-winning U.S. band Blues Traveler. The musician had opened a dispensary, Paper & Leaf, in Bainbridge Island, Washington, in 2015, so we were talking about going into the marijuana business and changing the stigma around it.
At one point, I decided to ask about both his first and his best joint. And damn, I’m glad I did!
As many blues bands, Blues Traveler is sort of an improvisational group, Hill commenced.
Strawberry Kush (Indica)
Strawberry Kush (Strawberry Cough x OG Kush) is a California sensation and a growers dream as the OG Kush helps to hulk out the notoriously finicky and low yielding Strawberry Cough. The smell is very fruity (like Strawberries) with earthy and chemy overtones from the OG. The taste of more typical of Chemdawg, with a fruity aftertaste. The effect is a very uplifting sativa high.
No sales, but marijuana ‘gifts’ exploit a legal limbo
Jack Sargent sees a bright future in marijuana.
The retired grandfather of nine wants to grow his Biddeford-based business, The Cannabis Shack, to cater parties – think weddings and barbecues with marijuana-infused food – and open a storefront cannabis bakery. He’s already perfected his recipes, including an “award winning” Hell Sauce 420 hot sauce, brownies and infused salad dressings.
But at least until next year, when the state plans to issue retail licenses, Sargent isn’t allowed to sell any of it. While marijuana use is now legal for adults 21 and over, selling it remains a crime and obtaining it without breaking the law is difficult.
