Our Story

Simple Beginnings

We set out in 2019 as a small group of scientists and entrepreneurs with a simple goal: to make cannabis products that we’d be proud to put out into the world. After 9 months of careful development, Volta Cannabinoids was launched. Immediately consumers took notice and fell in love with the product for its certified potency, flavorful taste and informative packaging.

Why the name Volta?

Volta was one of many code words used to protect trade secrets at a sister company. Our founder Ryan Sparkman would search through code name lists or maps to find unique names that are easy to pronounce and memorable so people would use it. Volta was a favorite code name with a personal history.

Also of note, Alessandro Volta was an Italian physicist, chemist, and pioneer of electricity and power who is credited as the inventor if the electric battery and the discoverer of methane.

Mission

Volta aims to create a business that lifts up those around it and make products that we are proud of. We treat people fairly, whether they’re our employees, local farmers, or customers who have come to rely on our products and need access to them affordably.

By adhering to the highest standards of product quality, certified production methods, efficacy testing and innovation, Volta Cannabinoids will continue to produce and deliver the safest, most convenient and medicinal cannabis products to a discerning and deserving community.

Who We Are

Volta is for Everyone. Learn more about the values we live by:

Respectful Inclusivity

Everyone should have the products and information they need to find the cannabis experience that’s right for them.

Nurturing Education and Choice

We believe in educating people about respectful use of cannabis and providing it to them in understandable forms to safely experience. People should be free to choose the experiences that are right for them, to choose what they want to put in their body and choose how they want to feel.

Nurturing Education and Choice

77 million people in the US have a criminal record. That is 23% of the population – nearly 1 in 4 people. We recognize the injustice of building a legal industry that prospers off a plant that has incarcerated so many people. We believe in building an equitable cannabis industry that repairs its past while heading into the legalization, education, and research of the future.

Leadership by Example

Setting the standards for education, growing practices and consistency to transform the industry.

Integrity

Experiences people have with the Volta products should be true to our information and our products should be true to their nature.

Reverence for Nature
