It started, as all Bay Area legends do, in a garage with the founders enjoying one of their favorite exotic strains. We asked, “Why aren’t other people experiencing cannabis the way we are?” The answer became House Caviar.
We began with the philosophy that, beyond teaching people how to smoke and what to smoke, we needed to create a safe and open space that fosters their curiosity: the House. We started by throwing our own events so people could see what normalized social consumption looks like. Once it was clear that consuming cannabis in social settings can be a pleasant, safe, and fun experience, we looked to educate on the best, highest quality, and most responsibly produced product: the Caviar.
Together these elements formed the basis of a business that brings thoughtful and refined cannabis experiences to the initiated and uninitiated alike, helping to normalize the social consumption of cannabis and showing people the best of what that world has to offer.
