Infusing the best elements of yesterday with the highest quality cannabis extracts of today, The Original Pot Co. cookies are carefully prepared to preserve the flavors of nostalgia and are baked using hand-chipped pieces of Guittard chocolate, macadamia nuts roasted in-house (for White Chocolate Macadamia Nut flavor), locally sourced ingredients, and the highest quality cannabinoids and Terpenes.

“From the beginning, we wanted to design a product that conjured memories of home-baked goodness,” explains INDUS Holding Company Co-founder & Executive Vice President Mark Ainsworth. “With The Original Pot Co., we’re introducing a brand that is both a throwback and forward thinking, as it furthers our mission to develop delicious, safe and socially responsible edible products.”

In conjunction with the April debut of The Original Pot Co., INDUS Holding Company will donate a percentage of launch proceeds to Code for America’s Clear My Record project, a nonprofit effort to transform the way government delivers services to those impacted by the criminal justice system.

“Partnering with Code for America aligns with one of the founding principles of INDUS Holding Company,” adds Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Robert Weakley. “As a leader in our industry, it is our responsibility to support those who are working to advance the changing attitudes toward cannabis.”

A vertically integrated cannabis company with world-class production capabilities, including cultivation, extraction, manufacturing, brand sales & marketing, and distribution, INDUS Holding Company is among the most recognized and respected companies in the regulated cannabis space and a leading producer of chocolate confections, beverages, baked goods, gummies, and hard candies.
