initiatives to produce the best medicine with the lowest environmental impact
Hawai‘i is a prime location for sungrown cannabis —the quality of our sunlight, especially at elevation, provides a broad spectrum of light including UV that allow plants to thrive. Utilizing the sun allows us to significantly cut our carbon footprint and provide medicine unique to the island.
We only use heat, water, and pressure to make the cannabis extracts that go into all of our non-flower products. Solventless extraction means less waste, zero chance of solvent contamination, and a product that more closely reflects the active compound profile, taste, and flavor of the bud.
Hawaiian Ethos is one of the first dispensaries in the US to offer 100% compostable flower packaging. In designing the packaging for all our products, we considered real world scenarios taking into account current recycling practices, compostability, reusability, and shipping.
