As a California-grown company, freedom is one of the ideals we value most. It’s reflected in Island’s laid-back culture. In our independently-minded ethos. In our strains, inspired by the wide, open landscapes of the state we love—from the Citrus Waves of the Pacific Ocean to the Evergreen Haze of the Sierra Nevadas to the OG Drifts down highways with endless horizons.
"As a California-grown company, freedom is one of the ideals we value most.”
Most importantly, is our ability to enjoy cannabis openly and legally in the Golden State, without fear of criminal conviction.
It’s a freedom. And a privilege. Because depending on where you live, cannabis is either “essential” or a Schedule 1 illegal drug. And there are over 40,000 people (disproportionately POC) currently serving time for nonviolent cannabis crimes in the United States alone.
Here’s the truth: as a cannabis company, we have a moral responsibility to act. Now. Doing whatever we can to correct this fundamental injustice. Not just through our words, but through our commitments
That’s why we’re excited to be partnering with Last Prisoner Project, an innovative nonprofit organization with a mission we 1000% support—setting every last cannabis prisoner free. Made up of a coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives, and artists, Last Prisoner Project is dedicated to correcting cannabis injustices through three key reform initiatives: prisoner release, record clearing through clemency and expungement, and reentry programs that help individuals get back on their feet.

Here’s how we’re shining a light on their mission and working together to support it:
Knowledge is power. We’re dedicated to using Island’s platforms to educate people about the issue and why it matters, amplifying the good work that Last Prisoner Project is doing.
The US cannabis industry is worth billions. Yet thousands of cannabis prisoners have suffered convictions for doing exactly the same thing. We’re doing our part to give back by making monthly donations to support Last Prisoner Project’s programs.
We’ve got a super-secret special collaboration on the horizon. Stay tuned for a big announcement, coming soon.
We’re taking steps in the right direction, but there’s still much more work to be done. Check back to see more ways we continue to fight this injustice, as we work to bring the same freedoms to everyone under the sun.
