Gold Standard was founded at the end of 2017 by Zion Greenfield and Lucas Brown. Zion and Lucas saw a need for a CBD product that was unrivaled in quality by any other on the market and could compete with the typical high THC products found in marijuana dispensaries. Both Zion and Lucas have always been passionate about cannabis but are also realistic about the long term effects of regularly using THC. What they and so many others are discovering is that you can “be your higher self, without the high". Gold Standard was the first to market in the U.S. with a hemp cigarette. We proudly claim Hemp Stix as America's 1st and best hemp cigarette.
