About Herban Bud Co.
Legal THC for Everyone
We believe that cannabis can be both a safe recreational tool and an important medicine. That’s why our founder, Paul, traveled back home to California in 2005—to seek medical treatment for crippling chronic migraines. Lasting from a day to weeks at a time, THC was the only thing that provided any relief.
Upon his return to Texas, he was apprehended by police and charged with possession of a controlled substance. By weighing both the two THC pills in Paul’s possession and the bottle they came in, they were able to increase the charge to a second degree felony for between 4g and 400g of THC. (The total weight including the bottle was 4.9g.)
For context: the possession of up to 200 grams of meth or heroin is also a second degree felony.
The charge carried with it a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison.
A strong defense and the privilege afforded by being white saved him from prison time. But we are acutely aware that this is often not the case. Nationally, Black people are four times more likely to be arrested for cannabis possession—despite nearly identical rates of drug use. People of color languish in prison for years, even decades, for selling or growing a substance that has never caused a confirmed overdose fatality. And which is now making fortunes for distributors and growers in legal markets.
After the arrest, Paul was placed on 10 years of probation, which put any further cannabis treatments out of reach. Instead, he was prescribed a cocktail of Oxycontin, Oxycodone, Valium, and Flexeril to manage his migraines—a combination that led to extreme side effects that his endocrinologist considered life-threatening.
Our goal in creating the Herban Bud brand is to formulate products strong enough to provide the desired effects of full-spectrum cannabis. Through these products, we aim to eliminate the need for our customers to smuggle their medicine into their states illegally, or to rely on dangerous and habit-forming opiates.
We believe we have achieved that goal with the strength of our products, but we want you to be the judge!
The Strongest Legal Edibles, Vapes, and THC Flower
Herban Bud manufactures edibles, vapes, and flower from hemp-derived THC and cannabinoids. These products are federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill, and are legal in most states.
(Check our FAQ page for a list of the states that have banned Delta-8 THC products.)
Each recipe is carefully formulated with the best ingredients available. Unlike some brands, we never pad our gummies with CBD. And our Delta-9, THC-O, and HHC vapes are never made with low-cost Delta-8 THC. That’s why our products are some of the most effective on the market.
Even our cartridges are custom-made, with the internal components designed to suit the viscosity of our oils. The result? One of the lowest failure rates anywhere.
You can buy our legal THC products online, or at hundreds of distributors nationwide. Our largest markets are currently in Texas and North Carolina, but we’re adding new wholesalers every week.
We absolutely love cannabis. But we will never sacrifice quality or people for profits. That’s the bottom line.
The Herban Bud Guarantee
There are a lot of shady dealings in the new field of legal THC products. We’re not about that. Each product we make has been tested and re-tested for potency, effectiveness, and quality. If it’s not awesome, we don’t sell it. Period.
