THE YUMMI KARMA STORY
Yes, we are a women-owned-and-operated company. But we are so much more than that.
We are different.
We are diverse.
We are bold.
And we truly believe in the power of the plant.
In 2014, we had a vision of what the future held. We dreamed of the day when cannabis was legal, safe, and easily accessible. We began Yummi Karma with that in mind. It hasn’t always been easy.
Since day one, we have operated like a regulated manufacturer, even when the Cities and State didn’t recognize us as a “real” business. We have opened and lost dozens of bank accounts, just trying to pay taxes.
But we persisted.
In 2016, we launched the first mainstream cannabis beauty brand, High Gorgeous – and it took off, just like we knew it would.
When California finally approved legalization in 2017, we went into action looking for a zoned area to buildout our new manufacturing facility. We found our home in the heart of Costa Mesa and began construction. We worked feverishly on the application process and were very proud to become the first licensed manufacturer in Orange County.
It gave us the opportunity to add to our team, and we welcomed onboard some of the most talented, motivated, and diverse women in the industry. All the while, remembering what brought us here in the first place.
Today, we continue to find new, innovative, and effective ways to use cannabis to help women like us. Our products are good for the mind, body, and soul. We have helped shatter stereotypes about cannabis users and the cannabis industry. We have come a long way, but we still have a long way to go. Thank you for being such a big part of our journey – then, now, and as we all move forward, together.
