Satori x Hero Grown

Giving back to those who serve

HeroGrown® is partnering with Satori to get premium quality, affordable cannabis into the hands of Vermont Veterans who need it. HeroGrown x Satori products are available to Veterans at a special discounted price, and $1 of every unit sold goes right back to supporting Vermont’s Veteran communities.

HeroGrown® began working with the Veteran community of Colorado in 2014 by providing them access to free cannabis products. With a core mission of helping Veterans and First Responders utilize cannabis as an alternative form of medicine, HeroGrown® now donated over $2 million annually and $15 million over the past 10 years.

HeroGrown® was founded by Roger Martin and Nick Martin, a father and son team devoted to easing the suffering of military veterans. In 2010, the Martin brothers were making their mark in California as medical cannabis advocates and cultivators. Their father, Roger, was a retired U.S. Army veteran and former law enforcement officer. Roger was also battling a severe addiction to drugs prescribed by the VA for his service-related health issues. When his sons suggested trying cannabis as an “exit” from prescriptions, Roger’s antiquated misconceptions about cannabis made him hesitant. But recognizing the toll the deadly opioids were taking on his body, he finally gave in and accepted help. With the support of his sons and their high-grade cannabis, Roger was able to detox from Oxycontin and Ambien. He credited cannabis with providing him a new lease on life.

Troubled by encounters with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress and other serious medical conditions, the family began giving their medical cannabis to veterans in 2011. In 2014, Nick decided to relocate to Colorado and formalize their efforts, incorporating the nonprofit Operation Grow4Vets. Later that year, the group made national headlines by holding the world’s first cannabis giveaway event for veterans. Over the next several years, Grow for Vets gave away millions worth of free cannabis to veterans, worked to change laws, and helped lay the foundation of the legal cannabis industry. In 2018, the group became HeroGrown Foundation and began providing assistance to first responders and medical workers as well as veterans.
