About Grön

we are grön

A women-led band of visionaries founded in 2015 by mother and architect-turned-chocolatier, Christine Smith, Grön creates delicious, handcrafted cannabis-infused edibles for the community. What started as one delicately nuanced dark chocolate bar has since expanded to multiple product lines available internationally, serving millions of happy customers.

 

we love every little bit

Love for the Earth and its provisions. Love for the people we work with. Love for the quality ingredients we source. Care in each product we make. It’s the only way for us to make honest, fine edibles with rich, nuanced flavors.

 

 

our seed to sale ecology

We’re committed to fairness, sustainability, minimal environmental impact, and enhancing communities. Aside from using only hand-harvested, Fair Trade cacao beans, our toppings and chocolate inclusions are locally sourced, organic, and provided by local partners.

rooted in community

From the beginning, Grön was created by a driven mother of two to serve like-minded community members an edible with the characteristics she wanted — beautifully delicious, consistently dosed, and easily shared.

Grön has grown into a women-led band of 70+ like-minded people based in the heart of Portland, Oregon who lovingly craft cannabis edibles for the community.

Grön About Us
Grön About Us Christine Smith

FOUNDER & CEO

christine smith

A fourth-generation Texan, Christine Smith built her first bonafide village on the family ranch at age 10—a prelude to her degree in architectural design at the Univ. of Texas Austin, studies in Denmark and quest to form thriving communities on small footprints.

Christine arrived in Oregon at the start of 1999, embarking on a 20-year career as an architect. Combining curiosities about tempering chocolate and a marketplace limited to cannabis-butter treats wrapped in cellophane, Christine applied her rich understanding of thoughtful proportions and composition to start Grön in 2014.

While Christine and her expanding team keep up with the growing demand across the US, there’s also her home life with Jasper, their two kids, a dog, cat, two horses and nine chickens on Skunk Valley Farm outside Portland where Jasper oversees the property’s Tier II OLCC-certified and Clean Green Certified grow facility. Together, the husband and wife duo are committed to providing sustainably produced seed-to-sale cannabis confections.
