Kiva was founded in 2010 with a clear mission - change how the world views and uses cannabis. Frustrated by the inconsistent, low-quality edibles available at the time, a young couple began making chocolate bars out of their Bay Area home kitchen. Today, our award-winning chocolates, mints, and gummies are the most trusted, recommended and sought-after edibles on the market.
In 2010, a young cannabis-loving couple set out on a mission to create a better edible. Scott Palmer and Kristi Knoblich Palmer were inspired by a visit to a local chocolatier, and soon started crafting the first Kiva bars in their home kitchen. They didn't realize it at the time, but they weren't just creating a more delicious, consistent and trustworthy edible than was currently available to consumers, they were setting the golden standard for the entire legal cannabis industry. In the last decade, our customers' support has turned our family-owned business into the #1 edibles brand in the country. Today, we are proud to employ a passionate team, and have added Terra, Petra and Camino to our happy family of premium cannabis products.
Consumers deserve to know exactly what they're consuming, which is why Kiva was one of the first edible makers in the country to self-impose stringent standards for potency, production, packaging and testing. We believe that the principles of consistency, efficacy, and food safety are fundamental to creating a high-quality edible that you can always feel confident sharing with friends and family.
Controlled dosing is at the core of each Kiva edible. Which is why every bite, bar, gummy and mint has 5MG THC or less per serving, so you can always find the sweet spot that is just right for you.
Since our founding in 2010, Kiva has become an outspoken advocate for this incredible plant and its consumers. We found and fund trade organizations to ensure commonsense regulations, develop educational outreach throughout the country, and regularly sponsor local events where you can connect with the professional cannabis community.
