Chris

My name is Chris. I own Hempful Farms Cafe Hemp Products and I’m the founder and creator of Zonka bars/OG Zonka Bars edible company, which was raided in 2012. Because of this raid, I am also a POW of the “war on drugs”. I have served almost six years between two terms in prison for being a cannabis user treating my Crohn’s disease.  Our medical program was approved in Arizona in 2010 but dispensaries didn’t open until 2013. I started my edible company in 2011 in hopes to supply medicine to patients but was charged with fifteen felonies and served two years. I was released in February 2017 and in three months we have taken our products to scale, distributed thirty sku’s to five states and have placed product in over thirty dispensaries. We hold the trademark on Arizona’s only hemp infused cafe and retail store and plan to open several nationwide. We also are teaming up with a group on a dispensary license and grow this summer, rolling out OG Zonka Bars.
