Peter Tosh is smiling upon us, America.
A lot of excitement and change for the better is on the horizon for the Cannabis industry. As we kicked off several new branding projects in the space, we discovered brands we came to love. We are impressed by the people behind the brands, the culture they create, the communities they build, and the new technologies they develop.
Here is our list of 10 brands on the fore-front of casting a fresh view on marijuana.
1. Défoncé Chocolatier
Artisinal chocolate edibles that are physically as beautiful as they are branded and packaged.
2. PAX Vapor
Simple and elegantly designed portable vaporizers for loose-leaf and oil applications.
3. LOLA LOLA
San Francisco based company selling a variety of cannabis goods with a dreamy and fun branding.
4. Leafs by Snoop
An oldie but goodie, Pentagram definitely busted open the design door for the cannabis industry.
5. Good Chemistry
A nursery in Colorado cultivating premium flowers and concentrates with a solid design aesthetic.
6. Kiva Confections
Another well-crafted confections company experimenting with chocolate bars, mini-bites, and mints
An absolute gem of a dispensary located in Portland and designed by OMFGCO.
8. The Goodship Company

There are a lot of choices when it comes to ceramic smokeware but this branding has a retro modern vibe sets it just a bit above the rest for us.
If MoMa had a cannabis section, this retailer’s designer selection of pipes, ashtrays, lighters, and containers would be a perfect fit.
We’re looking forward to seeing new brands come to fruition, using good design principles, a genuine do-good approach, and a passionate dedication to their craft.
