Ganja is part of Jamaican culture, it has been brought to our island hundreds of years ago by the most diverse ethnicities that have been using Ganja for other thousands of years. These gathering of knowledge together with our soil and climate made Jamaica nest to some of the best Ganja in the world.
“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.”
RESPECT THE ROOTS
Kaya was born out of love for Ganja and love for Jamaica.
So after decades of marginalization and criminalization, Kaya works to make these same herbs that we respect so much a mechanism of change for good. Kaya is the seed of a new Jamaica.
GROWN IN JAMAICA
We run our business following 3 core principles of Jamaican culture.
It is our duty to spread knowledge about Ganja. Every herb has a story and only by sharing these stories we are able to create meaningful experiences.
As proud Jamaicans, we empower local communities and always do an effort to only use Jamaican raw materials, workforce and any kind of technology.
Respect is what drives every decision we make. From employer employee relations, to our relations in our community, herbs, brand, products and nature.
Since 2018 Kaya is the first medical cannabis brand from the Caribbean, which combines a variety of partnerships and brands which complement each other. Its primary focus is on the health and wellness tourism industry.
Kaya has been on the forefront of medical Ganja research with the University of Technology of Jamaica, in which they granted 1 of the 2 licenses issued in 2015 by the Government of Jamaica. During that period, the team was able to examine the effects of growing and testing a variety of high CBD with low THC and also cultivating strains with high THC grown organically under 3 different conditions.
They continue to compile data through batch testing with Steep Hills Lab located at the department of Health and Sciences at UTEC and Caritox at UWI.
Our roots spread beyond the cannabis supply chain acting anywhere from international trade to gastronomy. We offer an original Jamaican experience rooted in our culture and centred around cannabis. For us, Ganja is the tool that brings a Caribbean experience to a spiritual level creating a real connection between people and our roots.
