About

about_us_heroimg-edited

The Ounce is a Washington, DC-based cannabis wellness brand. We offer an array of hemp-derived products & support our surrounding communities through local service efforts & authentic celebration of Black + Brown culture.

CBD PRODUCTS

The Ounce’s CBD hemp flower is grown on organic farmland. We prioritize sourcing flower from local and minority-owned farmers who use safe and natural growing procedures. Our CBD is extracted using the Supercritical CO2 method (best) at FDA compliant facilities, is non-GMO, free of pesticides and 3rd party lab tested for purity, potency and safety.

Transparency and product consumption safety are priorities for us. Hence, our lab results are public knowledge.

See our Education tab for general information about CBD.

ABOUT OUR FOUNDER

Ray DixonWith a background in psychology, fitness, and spiritual care, Ray Dixon has become an advocate for his local community. When Ray is not listening to music or taking photos, he can more than likely be found sharing laughs with close friends and family or stuffing his face with cuisine from local kitchens and eateries.

Ray recently served as a Local Organizer for this year’s (2020) DC / Maryland / Virginia National Expungement Week of Action. Taking on a more hands-on role, Ray provided artistic and organizational support, recruitment, and written coverage of this year’s local Week of Action activities via The Outlaw Report and The Ounce’s blog. National Expungement Week is a non-cannabis specific awareness movement that facilitates expungement relief & wrap-around services to the community.
