Henry Alston (HA): It’s deep, particularly when I talk about how cannabis is a catalyst for conversation and community. No matter the range of orientation, backgrounds, beliefs, etc, I’ve witnessed cannabis bring people together and unite to enjoy the herb of the earth. And so at James Henry, our artwork resonates to show the art of conversation and community with one of the birds turned speaking to the other as they are encompassed by a gold halo to represent the community of the world.
HA: Surprising enough, there are many consumers that don’t know that history about cannabis outside of the Bay Area. The Castro was considered a Ground Zero for the beginning of the HIV/AIDS crisis and there are survivors who share those stories in the Bay Area today. In celebration of Dennis Peron, Brownie Mary, Terrence Allen, Wayne Goodman, and many others who were beacons during that time, our brand participates in sponsoring and maintaining a presence at LGBTQ+ events in addition to providing an affordable product and donating to compassion programs such as BlkCannaJoy.
HA: Noah’s Arc, P-Valley, and RuPaul’s Drag Race
HA: ANYTHING STUDIO 54’ISH. I luv Soul Disco and the 70’s.
HA: Dennis Peron, would love to just hear where his mind was while braving the original cannabis wilds.
