BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Alicia Rose founded HerbaBuena in 2015 to help define the new cannabis culture, and to serve the needs of health conscious adults looking for the same level of purity and quality in their cannabis as they’ve come to expect in their organic food and fine wine.
HerbaBuena crafts a portfolio of award-winning products utilizing whole plant intelligence with standardized purity, potency and effect, in order to support the greatest health and well-being. In order to ensure purity and quality in all their products, HerbaBuena cultivates their own organically sun grown cannabis from their permitted garden in the mountains of Mendocino, and works with a select group of Demeter Certified Biodynamic farms in northern California.
Alicia’s work in cannabis is informed by both her advanced degree in environmental science and a 15-year tenure in the wine industry, where she’s worked with a handful of 100-point winemakers and top wine brands. A founding Board Member of the Mendocino Cannabis Industry Association and the Wine & Weed Symposium, she’s committed to educating people about the therapeutic value of cannabis and redefining the dialog about the way we nourish and care for ourselves and the planet.
