We are fully dedicated to cultivating clean, sun grown cannabis that utilizes only sustainable and responsible farming practices with an emphasis on a healthy living soil. Our dedication and passion for clean, organic cannabis products, while providing an educational and supportive network for consumers, was the motivation behind starting NurseGrown Organics. Together, Jessilyn Dolan and Matt Leonetti bring decades of experience and knowledge to their organically grown, handcrafted and processed “best of the best” Vermont hemp and CBD products.
