About Us


Founded in 2005, The Natural Cannabis Company was created by Dona Frank as a way to provide women safe access to quality cannabis. Since its inception our company has continued to evolve and thrive, always keeping in line with our commitments to proving only clean, pesticide- and contaminant-free, premium cannabis products and helping women have a safe, positive experience both as clients and staff.

More than 90% of the cannabis and related products sold in our two Northern California dispensaries are produced by local small farms and artisan crafters. Large scale, mass produced cannabis is not for us nor our clients!

By focusing on the craft model, we partner with local farmers and producers to provide our clients with diverse and unique cannabis flowers and products while supporting multi-generational small businesses throughout Northern California. In fact, we have one of the most expansive collections of premium cannabis flowers in the region, offering more than 50 strains to choose from daily!

Art and creativity inspired by cannabis is another of our passions, one that is reflected both in our unique packaging and annual international art contest, High Art. We take pride in
promoting artists from around the world at international events like Oakland Pride, Sturgis, Art Basel Hong Kong, MORE…? Learn more about us and our programs below.


High Art:

High Art was created by Dona Frank and The Natural Cannabis Company in 2014 as a crowdsourcing solution to packaging design. From its humble beginnings, High Art has developed into an internationally-known art competition with thousands of entries annually from 60+ countries all over the world.

Each year professional and amateur artists create themed works through a variety of mediums to compete for $50,000 in prize money and to see their work featured on packaging, social media, at the High Art gallery in Santa Rosa, CA and displayed at prestigious art events, in the United States and abroad.

High Art 2018 marked the 5th anniversary of the competition and concluded with grand prize winner Mike Oncley receiving $15,000 USD and a $10,000 USD donation in his name to American Red Cross!

High Society:

The Natural Cannabis Company’s flagship subscription program offers subscribers access to unique craft cannabis products through a monthly collectible box. With a focus on premium cannabis flowers, extracts and concentrates, each box contains an assortment of products produced in Northern California by small, local farmers and artisan crafters.
