Steve Jobs once said, “The only way to do a great job is to love what you do.” And in California’s hyper-competitive cannabis market, you have to have heart—and a product that screams “Pick Me!” Cannabis Higgs founder Oliver Higgins can successfully check both of these boxes.
“I’ve been a joint smoker since I bought my first bag of weed, rolled a bunch of weed and played Goldeneye on my N64,” says Higgins. “So this love affair will always be the first product you created.”
The Los Angeles native founded his eponymous cannabis brand in 2017 to create exceptional, high-quality products for recreational users looking for an unparalleled cannabis experience. “Our goal is to spread happiness,” says Higgins. The brand’s bombastic aesthetic and only good vibes, retro ’90s is the essence of the SoCal lifestyle.
Higgins believes that cannabis consumption is more than just a way to relax. It is a lifestyle choice that enhances a sense of belonging and place. “Growing up in Southern California, there were so many outdoor activities where weeding is a welcome addition, from surfing to skiing golfHiking to go to films,” he says. “I wanted to make something that could be a part of all those adventures while at the same time being something where if you left it on the restaurant table, people would ask, ‘What is that? My favorite part is when someone opens the box for the first time without knowing what’s inside and seeing their reaction.”

The finest handcrafted cannabis sourced from long-established farmers and passionate microprocessors stretching from Newfoundland to British Columbia.
Higgins says the same lifestyle spirit of the original SoCal launch exists in Canada.
“I have so many fond memories of smoking cannabis in Canada over the years that it feels as natural to smoke it there as it is to smoke it in California,” he says. “I think Canadians have always embraced the cannabis culture.”
Higgins says America’s delays in getting through the federal legislation have hampered efforts to join the international talks. “It’s exciting to be dealing with actual specific rules and regulations and real government agencies,” he says of the northern expansion.
The first products in Canada will be cut flowers that are exclusively available at all Ocean Relief Retail stores and cafes in Newfoundland.
