Originally licensed in 2015 as one of the first edible companies in Nevada, Evergreen Organix’s original product line debuted with only five edibles. Today however, Evergreen features over 70 different product varieties. While they have long been known for their line of baked goods including chocolate chip cookies and double chocolate brownies, Evergreen Organix will be releasing a new line of gummies just in time for summer 2019.
Evergreen Organix is committed to embracing its brand evolution and has always sought to bring their best to the realm of cannabis edibles. They have built a talented team of cannabis chefs who handcraft all of their products. “We make everything from scratch,” says Creative Manager Melissa Meza. “We scale out every ingredient and have several quality control steps in our day-to-day processes to ensure we are offering only the best to consumers. We don’t believe in cutting corners.” This commitment to detail is extremely evident in both the Evergreen products and also in the pride in work that is held by the team. “We are fortunate to be able to do something we love and also be able to work in such a cool environment.” Meza added. “It’s really fulfilling to see people enjoy what we have worked so hard to create.”
Despite having such a large recreational presence in the Nevada cannabis marketplace, Evergreen Organix still acknowledges a deep commitment to medical patients. “We think it is very important to serve the medical community” says Vice President of Operations, Jillian Nelson. “We started as a medical only company and even though the recreational market has built a huge presence in today’s market, we continue to offer several medical-only products and plan to expand the variety of medical-only options within our product line.” Nelson highlighted that they currently offer several cookies and brownies dosed at 500mg of THC per pack for medical patients but hope to expand these varieties and offer more high dose options for the patient community.
Last, but certainly not least, is Evergreen’s commitment to hearing customer feedback and answering consumer requests. Part of Evergreen Organix’s success is definitely related to this commitment. “Much of what we have done is because people have asked for it.” Nelson stated. “Whether it was from community events, emails, product reviews, or people calling in questions to us, we love to hear what consumers have to say and their ideas of what edibles they would like to see in the Nevada market. Our attention to consumer feedback is actually how we developed many of our products including some of the varieties of cereal treats.”
What can you expect from Evergreen Organix in the near future? According to Nelson, “Evergreen has big plans for expansion! We are in the midst of expanding our brands to several states right now. We hope to be on dispensary shelves in California, Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Montana by end of 2019.”
Chef Melissa Meza
Chef Melissa Meza, the Creative Manager at Evergreen Organix, is a Culinary Institute of America graduate and was employed as a chef for ten years at the Red Rock Hotel and Casino. Baked goods and cereal treats are her specialty which makes her a valuable asset to the Evergreen Organix team. When asked why she became a canna-chef, she replied that she was “looking to try something new and also help people.” She enjoys working as a part of the Evergreen Organix team and expressed that the team is “very big on self care and ensuring that everyone is happy and healthy.” Melissa offered a couple quick tips for consumers: When infusing food at home, look for recipes that reference measurements in grams to make dosing more accurate. If you are new to edibles, always start small! Typically, ten milligrams is a standard serving size but there is nothing wrong with consuming just five milligrams and waiting to see how you feel.
