Why choose Siskiyou Sungrown?

Our Story

Siskiyou Sungrown was founded in 2014, but our story goes back much further. For Cedar and Madrone Grey, what began as a long-standing appreciation for the therapeutic power of cannabis became a personal quest to help family members with critical health issues many years ago.

The Greys committed to organic methods of farming and extraction in pursuit of the most pure and potent cannabis product possible: whole plant, organic ethanol extracted, decarboxylated cannabis oil. The results have been life changing for family, friends, patients and consumers.

Originally operating under the legal medical cannabis channels (OMMP), selling directly to medical dispensaries, Cedar and Madrone built their business one customer at a time, personally making, selling, and distributing their unique cannabis oil for medically-approved patients. When recreational use was implemented in 2016, Siskiyou Sungrown, now a thriving enterprise with a dozen employees and two farms, added state licensed dispensaries to their customer base.

Today, Siskiyou Sungrown is the standard bearer for cannabis wellness products, and has received many awards for sustainability and product quality. A team of 20 committed professionals work together to farm, process, and distribute cannabis products to over 300 dispensaries around Oregon, and hemp CBD products nationwide. Cedar has been appointed by Governor Brown as one of nine Oregon Cannabis Commissioners, advising agencies on the state medical program, research, social equity, and more. We are very excited about the future of cannabis m
