company mission

Kannaway is a company that manufactures and markets some of the world’s most important product innovations, sourced from one of the earth’s oldest natural resources – cannabis.

For most of the 20th century, cannabis plants, such as industrial hemp, were widely misunderstood, which lead to many people not seeing the incredible potential it holds. With thousands of practical uses, including wellness, nutrition, fibers, textiles, and environmentally friendly construction materials, Kannaway’s goal is to help make hemp an essential part of commerce and farming once again. With this goal in mind and driven by a small group of hemp pioneers, Kannaway began our journey to bring cannabis solutions back to the world again.
