Who We Are
Join us for an exploratory adventure of all things cannabis, the permaculture pendulum, the people and products behind Medicine Box.
The deep-rooted history of cannabis, both in California and its humble beginnings in indigenous cultures around the globe, keeps us grounded here at Medicine Box. We seek to preserve these traditions through education and advocacy of the cultural and social dynamics that are integral to building a truly sustainable system.

Cannabis should be functional, approachable and enjoyable
Medicine Box believes that cannabis should be functional, but it should also be approachable and enjoyable. With that in mind, we’ve put together several resources that will guide you through the experience of mindfully consuming cannabis. We hope this helps you get the most out of your medicine.
Medicine Box initiates its alchemy with the Mindful Cultivation of a 100% sungrown selection of Nevada County, CA’s finest cannabis. We then extract a full-spectrum oil from the finest flowers of our harvest, a process which fully preserves the plant’s many cannabinoids and terpenes.
While the majority of tinctures on the market merely contain cannabis oil mixed with a carrier; Equanimity is formulated with our soil-to-oil blend of whole-plant cannabis oil alongside 7 synergistic herbs, including valerian, skullcap, catnip, lemon balm, chamomile, licorice root and hawthorn berry and one food source, musa acuminata. This ensemble of herbal influences and compounds amplifies Equanimity’s calming, restful effects on the body, mind and soul.
Fractionated Coconut Oil
For our carrier, we chose this for its solubility and quick metabolism. Hailed as a rich resource of medium chain triglycerides and fatty acids, this oil’s natural preservative characteristics also assure Equanimity’s long shelf life.
Used for centuries in America, skullcap has been studied for its anti-anxiety effects. Once used by Native Americans as a treatment for digestive problems and frayed nerves, it is often used as a mild sedative, both on its own and in combination with other herbs.
Yet another one of the many banana plants around the world, this one has similar high amounts of potassium, vitamin B6 and magnesium. All beneficial for converting the amino acid tryptophan into serotonin (your happy neurotransmitter). There’s a few other wellness uses its consumers choose it for – think increased melatonin and blood sugar levels alongside considerable antibacterial properties amongst them.
Back in the day, chamomile was reportedly revered by the Saxons as one of nine of their sacred herbs. Today, its adherents seek antianxiolytic effects from its usage. It’s also been examined for its anti-inflammatory abilities as well as for its possible reduction of muscle spasms.
Lusted after by felines worldwide, catnip has been labeled “cannabis for cats. But it’s also been utilized by humans as a folk remedy for treating anxiety, with its calm and relaxation effects. Like skullcap, it has also been remarked by its users for its sedative qualities.
Valerian is well-known and loved amongst the sleep-conscious worldwide. It also promotes antianxiolytic moods and can potentially relieve mild nervous tension.
From Traditional Chinese Medicine to European herbalism, hawthorn has been used for centuries for cardiovascular and digestive purposes. The berries of the hawthorn shrub has gained a wide reputation within herbal circles for its potential support of healthy blood circulation and its heart-elevating properties.
Deceptively named, this non-citrus herb is grown in Southern Europe and all parts eastward. Those in the world of CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) know it well for its longtime use as a sleep aid. Not surprising are the knock-on effects that come from its restful qualities – lowered stress and anxiety along with improved mood and cognitive ability.
While best commercially known for its use in candies, licorice root also has been used as a detoxifier that soothes the stomach. It serves to harmonize the other ingredients in Equanimity.
