About Breeze Botanicals
Breeze Botanicals was founded in the Spring of 2014 in Gold Hill, Oregon with an original mission to provide a safe access point for medical patients in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) and all consumers seeking quality herbs from Southern Oregon. After two years of serving patients it was apparent that all people needed safe access to medical cannabis. Many people were afraid to get a medical card or were simply self-medicating for non-debilitating conditions like loss of sleep, headaches, and arthritis. Therefore in the fall of 2016 Breeze Botanicals became the first state of Oregon retailers of cannabis for all adults - both patients and consumers side-by-side. Proud to be serving all Oregonians as they explore cannabis. The dispensary carries over 30 herbs and plants that have proven medicinal benefits or may provide symptom relief displayed in an easy to understand fashion. Along with an accessory room to help patients administer healing herbs to a boutique carrying local food, art, and crafts from Southern Oregon.
