What is the name of your business and when did you start?

In 2018, I established Erva with a vision to revolutionize the hemp industry. Through my own research and experience with cannabis, I realized that the medicinal properties of the plant were not being utilized as they should. Big Pharma has pushed holistic, ancient medicine out of the mainstream, so I founded Erva as a way to bring it back in style. Our hand-crafted hemp products have quickly gained recognition and can now be found in leading dispensaries throughout MA, along with our newly-launched THC line!

How many employees does your company have?

We are fortunate to have an ever-growing team of 9 exceptional individuals who passionately contribute to Erva’s mission.

What products do you offer?

We started with hemp products, crafting exceptional tinctures, topicals, hemp flower/pre-rolls, and concentrates. But, now we are embarking on an exhilarating journey with our highly-anticipated THC line! The spotlight shines on Legacy Hash, an exquisite temple ball hashish, evoking nostalgia and fascination. Celestial Oil, meticulously blending CBD, CBG, and THC, captivates with harmonious potency, inspired by the ancient Holy Anointing Oil recipe. Our Sleep Capsules’ recognition at the Harvest Cup attests to their groundbreaking sedative effects, rendering benzodiazepines obsolete. Driven by innovation and excellence, we resurrect ancient remedies for the modern world, empowering individuals to explore cannabis’ profound potential.

What was your mission or purpose at the start of your company?

At Erva, our driving force is the pursuit of health and wellness. Providing a natural alternative to pharmaceuticals is our unwavering commitment, especially amid the opioid epidemic’s impact on Boston. We prioritize accessibility, ensuring our products are available to all, regardless of financial means. Education is pivotal in dismantling the stigma surrounding cannabis. We actively engage the community, promoting responsible use for its multitude of health benefits. Our profound belief in cannabis’ transformative potential drives us to enrich lives and contribute to society’s greater well-being.

What made you choose to start a company in this industry?

Motivated by a passion for cannabis and its untapped potential, I set out to fill a void in the market. By infusing traditional expertise with sustainable practices and a medicinal approach, my aim was to tackle prevalent health issues, contributing to the betterment of society’s well-being in this thriving industry.

Why do you feel your business is important to the community? Does your business give back to your community?

At our core, we empower the community through education and medicinal support, crafting custom formulas with The Green Nurses and other donation-based companies for patients facing various illnesses. We take pride in collaborating with local start-ups, empowering them to transform their product ideas into reality. Witnessing how we can amplify the benefits of cannabis through our assistance brings us great fulfillment.

During COVID-19, our ethanol supply enabled us to produce hand sanitizer, and we donated thousands of bottles to healthcare workers and those in need.
