Vertically-integrated cannabis retailer donates a portion of sales from its in-house flower brand to outreach programs
Soft launch raised over $5,000 for cannabis criminal justice reform
May 30, 2021
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California’s premier cannabis retailer, Perfect Union, announced the official launch of a charitable Community Fund tied to its in-house 530 Grower flower brand today, on 5/30/21.
$1 from every 530 Grower pre-roll purchase will be given to an organization that’s dedicated to improving people’s lives. The recipient organization will change over time. Perfect Union completed a trial of the program in May 2021 and collected $5,000 for the Last Prisoner Project, an organization dedicated to cannabis criminal justice reform.
The company’s storied history over the last decade and their focus on charitable causes has earned respect from the cannabis industry and loyal supporters. Perfect Union CEO David Spradlin opened his first dispensary with $17,000 and a passion for cannabis patient advocacy. Under Spradlin’s leadership, the company established a strong record of building local partnerships that beautify the neighborhood and support the cancer community, veterans, the unhoused, domestic violence victims, LGBTQ+, animals and the environment.
“Our mission has always been focused on providing high-quality cannabis in the spirit of service and compassion,” said Spradlin. “We’ve sponsored countless organizations and causes over the years. The Community Fund is a natural extension of our outreach efforts, and it’s a way to create a legacy for both Perfect Union and 530 Grower. This isn’t a one-time donation – it’s now a permanent part of the brand DNA.”
530 Grower is an award-winning cannabis flower brand from the 530-area code – a locale renowned for top shelf strains. The brand was founded in 2010 on the principle of offering safe cannabis, free of the pesticides and chemicals that were common at the time.
Following its modest start in an Auburn, Calif. garage, 530 Grower has expanded into a state-of-the-art, 25,000 square foot facility. The company’s emphasis on genetics has produced strains with lab-tested THC levels up to 40%, along with a loyal following of cannabis enthusiasts.
Customers can purchase 530 Grower pre-rolls at Perfect Union’s eleven branded California dispensaries, which include Marysville, Morro Bay, Riverbank, Sacramento (Northside and Eastside), Seaside, Shasta Lake, Turlock, Ukiah and Weed.
Perfect Union has managed profitable cannabis businesses for over a decade, successfully navigating state and local laws and regulations, and adding value to the communities where they operate. The company has a proven track record of building engagement, social welfare and outreach programs that focus on local partnerships, monetary investments and in-store donation campaigns.
