SANTA BARBARA,
Calif., June 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) –PRESS RELEASE– Pro Farms, Almora and Deibel
Bioscience of California have teamed up to donate over $5 million worth of
cannabis products to Sweetleaf Collective‘s patient network. Sweetleaf
Collective is a nonprofit assisting low-income patients in gaining access to
medical cannabis. Affected groups include veterans, people of color, as well as
HIV and cancer patients. Pro Farms and Almora are set to donate over a ton of state-tested and approved high-quality, California sun-grown
cannabis. Deibel Bioscience of California has donated its testing services to
the cause. According to Sweetleaf Collective founder “Sweetleaf” Joe,
this is the largest cannabis donation for compassionate use in California
history.  

“With the
growth of the retail cannabis industry and rising costs of regular goods such
as groceries and gas, access to cannabis for low-income patients is harder than
ever. We need corporate donations in addition to individual donations if we’re
going to meet growing demand,” said ‘Sweetleaf’ Joe, founder of Sweetleaf
Collective. “This donation will serve thousands of patients in California.
There are currently over 1,000 patients on the waiting list to access medical
cannabis and this donation will service those on Sweetleaf’s list and more.
Sweetleaf is accepting financial donations to help organize patients through
PayPal as well as cryptocurrency.”

“We’re in
business to grow great crops and do great things. We’ve become a renowned,
family-owned, California sun-grown cannabis farming company because of this and
now we’re in partnership with Almora and Sunsmoke, which are fantastic,
affordable and compassionate brands with a variety of excellent products,”
said Wil Crummer, CEO of Pro Farms. “Meaningful, philanthropic
donations are a foundational aspect of our overall company ethos and in
collaboration with Sweetleaf Collective, we’re immensely proud to be donating
so much high-quality cannabis to so many patients in such need,” Crummer concluded.
“It just feels so right.”

Access to
high-quality cannabis is necessary for medical patients, which is why Deibel
Bioscience of California is donating tens of thousands of dollars in testing
services to ensure high product quality and standards are met. “Deibel
Bioscience of California is a family-owned company committed to providing
accurate, independent, and compliant testing; so we felt it was important to
support and partner with this cause to ensure that patients receive the safest
products possible,” said CT Deibel, CEO for Deibel Bioscience of
California.

“The team
at Almora couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this donation that is so
desperately needed in our communities throughout California. We believe in
radiating love through our products and our people, and we hope that love will
find its way to the patients these products will serve,” said Kristen
Everhart, Almora Brand Director.
