Northern California was recently ravaged by a series of wild fires that have destroyed hundreds of thousands of acres and have caused property damage totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Watching homes and livelihoods get burned to the ground is devastating, and the victims displaced by these fires need support from the community.

We are giving a huge shoutout to AbsoluteXtracts and Care By Design for contributing relief to the patients affected by the Valley Fire, which has burned over 75,000 acres in Napa, Sonoma, and Lake County. In a statement released today, cannabis producers AbsoluteXtracts and Care By Design announced that they are donating $20,000 of medical cannabis products to patients who have lost everything.

The Smoke Reports team wants to give some much deserved recognition to AbsoluteXtracts, Care By Design, and all of the dispensaries that are assisting with this donation drive. The future of legitimate cannabis relies on these kinds of companies that give back to the community in a time of need. The cannabis community should always be looking to promote businesses that support the community.

Smoke Reports continues to raise awareness for the victims of these fires and the damage sustained within the California cannabis industry.  Another great organization that is supporting those displaced by the fires is Pay It Forward Humboldt. Smoke Reports was proud to register a domain for them to point more people at their Facebook page, bringing more attention and donations to the victims.
