ABOUT KAYA

ABOUT

KAYA

“IF WE COULD SEE THE MIRACLE OF A SINGLE FLOWER CLEARLY, OUR WHOLE LIFE WOULD CHANGE.” – Buddha

Respect the roots

For thousands of years, Ganja was used to heal bodies and minds around the world. It was a centerpiece of culture, a tool used to improve society holistically, from the economy to spirituality.

Then ignorance set in, and Ganja was no longer used as a tool, but as a weapon. A weapon aimed at marginalising and discriminating. A weapon wielded not to heal, but to hurt.

It’s time to rediscover Ganja’s true meaning.

To use knowledge and action to reintroduce the world to one of its greatest natural healers of body and soul. To set aside our ignorance.

We believe it’s time to prove, once and for all, that Ganja must never be used to drive us apart. But instead, to bring us together.

Kaya is the seed of a new Jamaica.

OUR ETHOS

We run our business following 3 core principles of Jamaican culture.

WISDOM

It is our duty to spread knowledge about ganja. Every herb has a story and only by sharing these stories are we able to create meaningful experiences.

PRIDE

It is our duty to spread knowledge about ganja. Every herb has a story and only by sharing these stories are we able to create meaningful experiences.

RESPECT

Respect drives every decision we make – from our relationships with our employees to how we treat our community, our herbs, our brand, our products and Nature.

A WELLNESS ECOSYSTEM

The first Medical Herb House in the Caribbean

Born in Jamaica, Kaya is the first medicinal Ganja herb house in the Caribbean. Our holistic, wellness-focused ecosystem was created to teach our visitors about the history of Ganja in Jamaica & show them how it’s grown, while enjoying it in a social setting.

Our locations offer our locally grown herbs and straight-from-the-farm extracts line as well as a taste of our world-renowned cuisine and juices at our cafe and tourist-friendly pizza restaurant. Patients can bring their own medical licences from their home country, or you can visit our doctor on the premises. We also offer tours.

Kaya was created to spread knowledge and love for this ancient herb while bringing people together, the way Ganja is supposed to be enjoyed.
