Maui CBD Collective Film Project
How was Maui Farma started?
Maui Farma was created from a true passion to provide real and wholesome plant-based food & medicine. When I first started creating these farm-to-bottle extracts, I was inspired to share and give these medicines to members of my community who were suffering.
The response was so powerful, that a few of our patients decided to fund the expansion of our Maui grown artisan-crafted products and help empower more local farms and gardens. Thus Maui Farma was born.
What was your motivation and how did you find CBD?
As certified herbalists, we have been cultivating and assisting patients with cannabis long before the discovery and general acceptance of CBD, a non-psychoactive component of cannabis that provides a multitude benefits. While pharmaceutical drugs have been proven to cause harmful side effects and addiction, we’ve made it our mission to provide the highest quality natural, Hawaiian grown plant medicines.
What is the goal and mission statement of your company?
At Maui Farma, we aim to assist the local economy and help give people an opportunity to earn a living in the garden. Our vision is to inspire our community to produce a more sustainable lifestyle through innovative farming practices like polyculture gardening and regenerative agriculture. We believe that by doing this together, we can create a better future for our children and the Earth.
How many farms do you have and where are they located?
Our collective is currently working together with three farms here on the island of Maui. Located in Haiku, Kula, and Kanaio, these gardens are nestled on the gentle slopes of Haleakala, known as the House of the Sun.
This beautiful mountain provides us with an incredible opportunity to cultivate a variety of organic herbs year-round under a full-spectrum of sunlight and unique tropical climates.
We believe the life force of our Hawaiian grown plants creates unsurpassed qualities in our farm-to-bottle medicines.
