Moving Cannabis into the Medicine Cabinet
1906 is revolutionizing self-care one edible at a time. We created a new category of cannabis to amplify health and happiness, which quickly put us on top as the fastest-growing brand in Colorado. We’ve innovated across R&D, manufacturing and marketing with breakthrough products that combine moderately-dosed THC with medicinal plants and adaptogens. User-friendly, portable and thoughtfully engineered, they deliver curated effects within 20 minutes—faster than any other edible on the market. The rapid-onset formulations help users get the most out of their days and nights while staying pleasantly in control. We call it a toolkit for modern living. The industry calls it a giant leap forward.
Functional Cannabis for Modern Life
Cannabis is an amazing tool for daily self-care, but until now it’s been difficult to calibrate the precise effects consumers crave. Our swallowable Drops and artisanal chocolate Gems combine moderately dosed cannabis with medicinal plants to help users boost every area of their lives and always feel in control.

In Plants We Trust
Medicinal plants have been a crucial part of wellness for thousands of years. No other company combines super-effective plant medicines and adaptogens with THC and CBD in a user-friendly, accessible form. This unique calibration is how we ensure each experience is distinct and perfectly consistent.
Impatience is a Virtue
1906 products leverage the only scientifically proven fast-acting technology for cannabinoids to deliver rapid onset and increased bio-absorption. Extensive validation includes:
– Intestinal permeability study
– Double-blind human observation study
– Pharmacokinetic (PK) study
– Animal study
Consumers are increasingly looking for alternatives to alcohol and pharma to manage daily life. It’s not about getting high, it’s about feeling better. To bring the beneficial powers of cannabis to this large and growing segment, including women and seniors, we are transforming the way cannabis is manufactured, marketed and consumed. It’s working. We’ve been growing 80 percent YOY in the most saturated, competitive state in the country. Now, we’re deploying an asset-light expansion Eastward. In August 2020, we will launch in Oklahoma, a fast-growing market, quickly followed by Massachusetts and Maryland.
