Mino-Ahki translates to “Good Earth” in Cree, and this company is doing everything they can to live up to their name. Everything down to the logo and bottle was designed and crafted by the peoples of Pasqua First Nations. Mino-Ahki is bringing traditional Indigenous culture into the prairie Cannabis industry by storm. The people of Pasqua First Nations are major partners with Atlas Growers, which this product and brand comes out from. With this partnership, the people of the Pasqua First Nations including Chief Richard wanted a product that they’ve designed and can be proud of to put out on the market. Above all, Atlas Growers gave them the freedom to do so and through that they created the Traditional Sweetgrass CBD Lotion.
