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.

A fourth-generation Texan, Christine built her first bonafide village on the family ranch at age 10—a prelude to her degree in architectural design at the University 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.

She cashed out her architecture firm stock options to purchase a chocolate machine, hired the perfect team, and the rest is history. What started as one delicately nuanced dark chocolate bar has grown to multiple product lines available across the US and Canada.

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

Grön is proud to be women owned and led, 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. Since its inception, the company has flourished into a band of over 140 cannabis enthusiasts based in the heart of Portland, Oregon. These passionate individuals share a common goal of crafting cannabis edibles with love and dedication for the community.

The Floret Coalition

We are honored to support this anti-racist collective of small businesses in the cannabis and cannabis-adjacent space which  supports and funds equity-oriented actions via monthly donations and social campaigns. They are committed to raising funds and awareness for organizations prioritizing the needs of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities.
