Mason Walker is CEO of East Fork Cultivars, an Oregon craft cannabis farm. He recently sat down with Civilized to talk about his work, the future of the cannabis industry, and what he would tell Attorney General Jeff “good people don’t smoke marijuana” Sessions if he had the chance.
What makes your company different from other growers in the cannabis industry?
We’re more than growers; we’re cultivators. We look beyond the plants and work to create a brand that expounds on ideas and cultivates an educated community. East Fork Cultivars devotes itself to the development and preservation of sungrown cannabis, and believe that sustainable farming methods produce superior holistic medicine. Our desire to provide Oregonians with a superior plant based medicine drives our selection of cultivars that are high in CBD.
We believe that CBD cultivars have the power to heal and bring relief to those in need. East Fork is rooted in a commitment to environmental and social responsibility and we take great pride in the processes and practices implemented on our farm. Our mission is to develop and preserve sustainable sungrown farming methods to produce the highest quality CBD.
Do you have a message for Donald Trump and/or Jeff Sessions? What would that message be?
Show some compassion for people that are suffering! For some people, cannabis offers a mild yet amazing alternative to opioids, autoimmune drugs and a litany of other medications with really lousy side effects. It’s hypocritical to issue a “state of emergency” on opioids, yet continue to demonize one of the most promising routes that people can take to ditch the highly addictive and potentially dangerous painkillers that have plagued our country for the past 20 years.
