Dr. Raw Organics, a line of infused cannabis products in San Diego, California, was co-founded by Kyle Dukes and Meghan Muckenfuss. The two started their journey in cannabis in 2010 on a trip to Rosarito, Mexico. There, they met a group of prohibition-era dispensary owners from San Diego that were impressed with Meghan’s baking ability and immediately hired her to craft homemade edibles to sell in their dispensaries. A lot of fun was had, however, after several years, the unlicensed dispensaries were shut down by the city, but Meghan refused to quit.
In 2013, Kyle and Meghan started The Raw Collective to continue offering their homemade edibles, by local delivery, to the many medical patients who had grown to love them. The Raw Collective was an immediate success and quickly grew to over 7,000 members to become one of the largest delivery services in the San Diego area. Soon, patients and dispensaries from all over California were calling and asking for their homemade edibles they had learned about while visiting San Diego. That was the light bulb moment when the two knew they had a viable cannabis brand.
In 2014, Dr. Raw’s line of infused cannabis products was born, including seven edibles, five tinctures and a topical balm. Dr. Raw pioneered quality in cannabis products by partnering with a highly sophisticated extraction company to provide pesticide-free cannabis oils for all Dr. Raw products, during a time where most infused product brands were testing positive for pesticide contamination. Dr. Raw products have earned shelf space in nearly 100 dispensaries throughout California as a result of this integrity.
