Simply High Extracts

Simply High Extracts was created in 2016 with the goal of bring a gourmet vegan infused Canna Butter and Extra Light Olive Oil to the legal cannabis market. We have been collaborating with top chefs all over building our brand, while also providing easy 15 min recipes on our website to go along with our products. We sold out catered events and provided cooking demo’s to new cannabis user of all ages and backgrounds.

For the last 6 months we have been striving to acquire licensing to bring our products to legal shops like Euphorium (a black owned dispensary) & Med Men. We are proud to say we have accomplish that goal and will be in legal dispensaries coming September!

This is a big accomplishment for myself and also the black community of LA. I’ve personally seen the effects of harsh scrutiny in LA neighborhoods for cannabis. To see the liberation of this medicinal herb, and see the people oppressed by prohibition capitalized is something that strove me to that goal of becoming licensed and entering the market the first black owned gourmet cannabis cooking extracts brand!

From the owner:

My name is Daniel Olujide George owner of Simply High Extracts. I’m Nigerian/American, born and raised in south central Los Angeles. I started this business when my father passed away from leukemia in 2016. Like most parents he was reluctant to share with me he used to be a cannabis user, in order to show me what is was like to live a life free of influence. I love and appreciate him for doing so. However, it inspired me to create a way to introduce the benefits of cannabis to people like my father and also people suffering from sickness and other ailments, while bringing a creative “do it yourself” approach to the edible industry.

CBD Saved My Sons Life

Last weekend I had a crisis with my 15 year old son. He had an anxiety attack during school hours. The attack was intense enough to make my son consider suicide.

A few months ago I decided to put my teenage son in therapy. There were no real alarms or red flags. I was just being a mom that wanted my son to have good physical and mental health. As a victor over child abuse I understand the importance of being able to communicate your thoughts and feeling with someone that just gets it. I felt very alone as a teenager and I never wanted my son to feel as I did.

Many years ago I noticed my son was having a difficult time focusing in school. I started doing research on CBD and ADHD (Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder). I never wanted to medicate my son however all the methods we had been using weren’t having good results. All the information I read said that it could help. I knew I was having great results from using CBD oil regularly. I hopymy soon would as well.

The results were amazing and he’s been using it for years. Unfortunately it’s difficult to ensure a teenager takes his medicine EVERY DAY!

Friday, during school one of the teachers noticed ny son didn’t look himself. He questioned his physical health and my son answered he was fine. Later that day he approached a teacher he trusts and shared how he was feeling. That teacher called his uncle that works at the school he attends. By the time my brother in love got to my son my son was in full panic mode. His heart was beating fast and he was calmly suggesting he should kill himself. His panic was so real you could feel it through his chest.

My brother in love talked to my son until he felt his heart slow down. Asked had he taken his supplement, my son had not. The uncle gave him his CBD supplement and they went home. By the time it was bed time he was calm and relaxed.

Turns out my son hadn’t taken his supplements in months.

The following morning he took another dose of CBD and had a phone conversation with his therapist. Although we all agreed he was feeling better my son insisted he wanted to be checked into a center.

Saturday afternoon, 2pm I checked my son into a mental health center for youth. Yes, this black mom had to admit her black man child into a mental health Center for youth.

5 years ago I wouldn’t have EVER been able to deal with my son’s mental health with the same urgency as I do with his physical health. Before Cannabis I was under the impression only black people with real issues go to therapy and or people that can afford it. The post Cannabis me has served thousands of Black adults with non diagnosed mental health issues like anger, depression, high stress levels, anxiety, and bipolar. Many of them had been self medicating with weed since the age my son is now.

Today my son is feeling well. He’s back in school and he’s taking his CBD daily.

Shame on California for Banning CBD

I just read an article by Kana stating that the California Department of Health had chosen to ban CBD derived from hemp.

I believe this is a gross abuse of control and may prove to be damaging to the Cannabis Industry as a whole. I’m truly disappointed and I believe it could be seen as negligent.

Many people use Hemp CBD as thier day to day supplement or treatment for issues like MS, Lupus, ARTHRITIS, Anxiety and Depression. This could force some of those patients to revert back to opioids or no treatment at all.

Although it doesn’t seemed they banned CBD frim Cannabis, as it can be regulated and taxed through The California Department of Health. It seems as of today, all Californians should take this time to stock up on thier meds.

I hope The California Department of Health reconsiders their ruling.
