Blaqstar Farms Review: Paving The Way For Cannabis Social Equity

Premium flower from a Black-owned cannabis company determined to showcase minority entrepreneurs.

Hopping around town to your favorite dispensaries or smoking a joint while walking down the street might be everyday activities for many of us who live in states where marijuana is deemed acceptable. Of course, this has not always been the case. 

While green crosses keep filling up street corners like popular coffee shops, many individuals are still behind bars for cannabis-related offenses. A majority of these individuals are people of color, and the irony of their imprisonment continues to baffle and enrage those seeking justice. 

As part of the Social Equity Program, minorities are given equal access opportunities in the cannabis industry to help those who have been affected by these harsh cannabis laws and the war on drugs. Minority-owned companies have been few and far between, but Blaqstar hopes to change all of that. 

What Is Blaqstar?

Since its inception in 2012, Blaqstar has been providing clean and potent cannabis that is grown utilizing classic cultivation methods that ensure sustainable growing and natural product that is free of all pesticides and chemicals. 

Alluring to the senses of touch, taste, and smell, the strong flower produced by Blaqstar has kept customers returning. Through this top-tier cannabis production, the company hopes to empower communities that have been negatively impacted by the war on drugs. 

The Los Angeles company has also been active in the fight for Social Equity, ensuring that people of color are given opportunities in this ever-growing industry. This is accomplished by creating an atmosphere where all individuals are granted access to the tools and information that is integral in creating and sustaining a successful cannabis business.

Who Is Bryant Mitchell?

Blaqstar founder and CEO Bryant Mitchell is the son of the first Black police officer in Orange, Texas. He owned a dispensary in Los Angeles when he realized that due to the increasing acceptance of cannabis as a medicine, there was a growing market for clean, high-quality weed products that would appeal to more than just the typical cannabis consumers. 

Mitchell started in the oil and gas industry, spending almost 20 years consulting with companies like IBM Strategy and Chevron. He holds an MBA from the Booth School of Business from the University of Chicago and a BA in business administration from Prairie View A&M University. 

After walking away from business consulting, Mitchell purchased his dispensary and soon realized that his grower did not know much about producing high-quality cannabis at large scale. Mitchell then used lessons learned during his consulting experience to realize that he had to learn the best techniques from experts to achieve his goal.

Mitchell traveled the long journey to Sonoma County, where he volunteered at local wineries to observe the distillation processes and, specifically, how they could be incorporated into the process of cultivating cannabis concentrates.

He has integrated these techniques into Blaqstar’s growing process, propelling the company into one of the industry’s most popular and exciting brands.

Preserving the purity of the cannabis plant has always been the mission for Brian Mitchell and his California company. Their top tier cultivation includes all-natural flower that is free of any chemicals or pesticides.

With an emphasis on artisanship and maintaining a high-quality product, the company has avoided the mistake that many cannabis companies make when quality is sacrificed for mass production.

Despite their popularity and growing demand, Blaqstar has kept its mission clear: consistently producing craft quality bud by fostering the strongest, healthiest plants that ensure a rich and clean smoking experience for their customers. 

Blaqstar has partnered with Blox Labs, a credible company that will take care of packaging and distribution for the growing Los Angeles brand.
