Native American Organics to Launch Groundbreaking Cannabis
May 28, 2015
Seattle – Red Tipped Arrow, LLC, a nationally-renowned, 100% Indian-owned economic
development company, and Wright Family Organics, LLC, a leading California-based medical
marijuana research and operations company, today announced the creation of Native
American Organics, LLC. The newly formed company will create a new pathway to offer the
highest grade marijuana products, scientific research and testing, cultivation,
manufacturing, and culturally-grounded health clinics based upon the groundbreaking entry
of Native American Indian tribes into the medicinal and recreational marijuana markets.
The Company’s website is
The company will work with Native American tribes located in states where medical and
recreational marijuana is legal to address regulation and compliance issues, as well as
success strategies for breaking down barriers to entry into the highly competitive cannabis
market. Native American Organics will employ state-of-the-art technology to help tribes
create products to help address physical and mental health issues on Indian reservations,
including specialized epilepsy, PTSD, cancer care, Parkinson's and Alzheimer diseases.
Red Tipped Arrow, LLC Owner Tex G. Hall explained why he thought it was the right time to
create Native American Organics, LLC:
“Throughout my career, I have fought for advancement and sovereignty of Indian tribes. And
a lot of that time was focused on economic development because that that is what our
people need and deserve. As the legal and practical questions surrounding the participation
of Indian tribes in the market continue to be settled, there is no doubt in my mind that
tribes have a competitive advantage when it comes to cannabis production, processing, and
sale. Revenues for the legal U.S. cannabis industry have reached at $11 billion business and
projections are that the industry will reach $30 billion in the next four years. Indian tribes
can be major players in the new market. In terms of public opinion, America has reached a
tipping point. The majority of Americans now say that marijuana is safer than alcohol and
believe that its use should be legal, according to nationwide polls by CBS News, Fox News,
and Pew Research.”
Hall also explained the new company’s areas of expertise:
“Through our partnership with Wright Family Organics, LLC, our team stands ready to assist
tribes in meeting the extensive requirements and compliance standards associated with
cannabis production in regulated states. Native American Organics will offer cultivation,
reliable and expert testing labs, clinics, dispensing units, manufacturing facilities, as well as
public policy expertise and guidance necessary to assist tribes in establishing their own laws
and regulations. It is imperative that we protect our rights and ensure we are doing our part
to ensure transparency in our operations so that we may operate without fear of disruption.”
Hall also explained the importance for Native American tribes:
“What really made an impact on me was the potential that cannabis has for healing and
easing the pain of our people who suffer from PTSD across Indian Country. Not least among
those who suffer are our veterans. American Indians have always fought fiercely to defend
this country. American Indians serve in the military in higher rates than any other group in
the U.S. Unfortunately, the Department of Veteran Affairs estimates the rates of PTSD
among American Indian veterans at up to 25%.”
