Cannabis is revered for its remarkable ability to foster connections. It transcends cultural divides and promotes a unique sense of community. The name CHAMP (Cannabis Handling Analysis & Mechanized Packaging) is an homage to our nations very first non-profit dispensary, CHAMP (Californians Helping Alleviate Medical Problems), founded by Terrance Alan, renowned cannabis activist and patient advocate. From the very beginning, our cannabis community has understood the importance of unity and the accomplishments that can be made when people focus on a common goal.
