About The Herbal Alternative


As this industry grows, you will surely see more big business start to dominate the space. That’s why we are proud to be independently owned and operated by our founder, Garrett Smith.

Garrett’s interest and appreciation for quality cannabis started for purely personal reasons. After serving five years of active duty in the United States Coast Guard, Garrett developed a severe and debilitating seizure disorder.

It was Garrett’s personal discovery of the medical benefits of cannabis for seizure control that became the driving force behind his dedication to growing the best product possible – and it continues today.

We hope you have the opportunity to visit our facility, meet Garrett and all of our wonderful staff, and best of all – sample our products!
