In September of 2015 the buzz in the medical community earned Pennywise strain of the month in the Oregon Leaf magazine. Davis Farms of Oregon was providing retail cannabis flowers with different ratios of CBD to THC for patients under the medical cannabis program in Oregon. Pennywise gained quick recognition in the community as a powerful 1.25:1 with calming effects and a uniquely strong flavor of creamy cherries.
Since 2014 founder Jeremy Klettke, had been donating RSO & various forms of CBD to those in need by word of mouth in a program he casually referred to as "CBD for the OMMP".
Taking the opportunity in Septembers issue highlighting Pennywise, Jeremy announced his donation program to the community at large. Later in November the Oregon Leaf was kind enough to feature another mention of the program and further expand the reach to those in need. The CBD drought refferred to in Novembers issue was due to the transitioning of Oregon to a recreational market, and the belief that consumers were not interested in CBD but only High THC strains, leaving patients with limited access to the medicine they had become accustomed to.
