What inspired you all to create this company?
We started this company for our conservative asian mothers. She is an asthma patient who could have benefited from the anti-inflammatory benefits of cannabis, but was turned off by its reputation. With her and those like her in mind, we knew our branding and communication of possible health benefits of cannabis and the integrity of our ingredients (we even harvest our honey from our own Bay Area hives) would be key to our company.
What distinguishes your company and product in the market?
Potli is the premier purveyor of cannabis enhanced kitchen pantry ingredients. Most edibles available are sugar-based treats like gummies and chocolate. At Potli, we believe that infused ingredients like honey, olive oil, chili oil, and apple cider vinegar are the healthiest, easiest, most versatile way to incorporate the incredible health benefits of cannabis into your daily routine.
