Potli was founded by two women in California. Their first customers were their toughest – their Asian immigrant moms, definitely conservative and totally not cool with cannabis. But one mom needed its healing properties to treat symptoms of asthma. So the founders got creative. They came up with a familiar and easy way to consume: raw wildflower honey harvested from their very own hives in the San Francisco Bay area. Potli also offers a full range of cooking ingredients, including apple cider vinegar, olive oil and chili oil.
