Kiva Confections was launched in 2010, when the infused products field was wide open for innovation. Kiva’s founders, Scott Palmer and Kristi Knoblich Palmer, were a young couple looking for high quality and trustworthy products for their own consumption, when they discovered a distinct lack in the marketplace. The edible market was desperately underserved- products were untested, unlabeled, and inconsistently potent, which the founders became committed to changing. By working with experienced cannabis cultivators, and expert chocolatiers, Kiva Confections was launched with a commitment to efficacy, food safety, and business integrity. Scott and Kristi endeavored to create a safe, consistent and delicious cannabis edible- and to make their product accessible to a wide array of consumers through premium branding. They thought about the user experience at every step of the process – from the quality of the raw materials and ingredient sources, to the packaging design and the information it conveyed, to the experience our consumers enjoyed. The founders believe that cannabis is safe, natural, and effective - and from the start they wanted to empower users to consume it wisely and effectively for their greatest health and well-being.
