Root’d In Equity
Root’d was founded by a team of industry experts and passionate cannabis pioneers.
In 2018, Rickey McCullough was awarded a license to open a dispensary through Oakland’s Cannabis License Equity Program. The program was created to help compensate groups who had been disproportionately punished under oppressive drug legislation, prior to legalization.
Rickey had become an expert cultivator at a relatively young age and was eager to, post-legalization, help bring quality products to those in need. Rickey had a vision for a cultivation and dispensary business that reached beyond the benefits of providing medicine to cannabis consumers.
He wanted to manifest a hub for events, activities, and good times. He aimed to create a cultural force for good, centered around the responsible sale and enjoyment of the cannabis plant he loved. Rickey brought in a supporting team of industry experts and began to plan Root’d Dispensary and Lounge. The rest, as they say, is history.
