Mary Jane’s Medicinals was founded by Dahlia Mertens in 2010. After being introduced to a cannabis infused massage oil in the beautiful mountains of Northern California, she was inspired to return to her home state of Colorado and start a line of cannabis infused topical body products.
The Medical Marijuana movement in Colorado was just starting to gain momentum so it was a good time to start an MMJ business- some people refer to that time as the gold rush for cannabis in Colorado. It was a bit like the wild west, until the state regulations were brought into effect.
Dahlia has a background as a massage therapist, and started using the oil on some of her clients. She was amazed at the feedback she was hearing, and blown away by the large variety of ailments her products were helping to relieve and even heal.
