Kaya, Inc is established.
Born in Jamaica, Kaya is the first medicinal Ganja herb house in the Caribbean. Their holistic, wellness-focused ecosystem was created to teach their visitors about the history of Ganja in Jamaica & show them how it’s grown, while enjoying it in a social setting.
Their locations offer locally grown herbs and straight-from-the-farm extracts line as well as a taste of our world-renowned cuisine and juices at our cafe and tourist-friendly pizza restaurant. Patients can bring their own medical licences from their home country, or you can visit our doctor on the premises. We also offer tours.
Kaya was created to spread knowledge and love for this ancient herb while bringing people together, the way Ganja is supposed to be enjoyed.
We love Kaya because we think their wellness ecosystem elevates the concept of a medical marijuana dispensary. They give their patients the utmost care by ensuring that they have a high quality organic product. They also pair this with an amazing menu of food that taste so good it probably will heal your soul.
They are truly crafts people and you can see that they care about the details, their patients and have real purpose in what they are building.
At Kaya they are very passionate about their herbs — from the water they use to the soil they compost and the organic standards they use for their insect pest management. Kaya’s growers have spent years developing their knowledge about the variety of old Ganja strains as well as some our favorite new hybrids. It is very important to us that we maintain some of the old standards of growing while embracing new technology so there is a balance and we never forget about the soul of the plant.
Kaya Herb House has four fantastic locations. Three in Jamaica and one in Uruguay.
Kaya is a historic brand. It is the first legal medical marijuana dispensary in a country synonymous with ganja. Being the first legal dispensary in Jamaica is legendary. Producing award winning strains and extract is heroic. However, having a mission of using ganja to heal people, provide jobs, and growing the countries economy is truly noble. Kaya is truly the seed of a new Jamaica.
