About Us

The legal cannabis industry is one of the biggest growth stories of our generation – we’re at the beginning of the end of the global prohibition of cannabis and Washington has led the way. Our belief is that a legal regulated market is a better answer for our country and we’re proud to play a leading role in showing the world how to do it properly.

botanicaSEATTLE was one of the first legal cannabis companies in Washington. We started in 2014 with a focus on creating edibles that would resonate for a wide range of consumers. Today our market leading brands are found across the state in hundreds of stores and include Mr. Moxey’s Mints, SPOT, and Journeyman. In 2017 we opened a sister company in Oregon that allowed our brands to be found across the Pacific Northwest and we’re currently building out our retail focus.

We’re a small group of committed professionals out to make a big impact. We work hard, deal with the unexpected, and are driven to change the world. If this sounds interesting then we’d love to talk and learn about why you’d like to join us.
