American Cannabis Partners Replicates Jamaican Ganja Growing IP in Recreational Use-legal States

  • American Cannabis Partners (“ACP”) is a Northern California-based organic cannabis cultivation company that has assimilated the strengths of Jamaica’s marijuana growing reputation to create a stable and distinctive brand
  • The company primarily employs rigorously vetted Jamaicans experienced and knowledgeable in growing strains of product that recreate the Caribbean Island’s product for licensing and sales under ACP’s ZÜK brand
  • The overall cannabis industry is growing rapidly in the United States, with an anticipated market valuation of $30 billion by 2025
  • Ironically, it’s more difficult than ever to get Jamaica’s famed marijuana in the Caribbean because of pandemic-related factors plus a devastating hurricane and drought during the past year

California and Michigan are the new places for a Jamaican getaway — if your getaway plans include a little ganja. 

While 2021 has been a bit brutal for the Caribbean island nation’s famed but largely illegal marijuana market, sustainable Jamaican experience canna-business innovator American Cannabis Partners (“ACP”)  is replicating the growing, feeding, temperatures, harvesting, and curing processes of Jamaican techniques to create a product unlike any other grower’s in the United States. 

An important factor in all of this is ACP’s close personal and positive relationship with the nation and people of Jamaica; a deep awareness of needs and not just business numbers. American Cannabis Partners employs a staff that is 90 percent Jamaicans hand-picked through what the company describes as an extremely difficult vetting process requiring not only the correct U.S. immigration status but also at least 10 years of experience in Jamaican growing and processing, with knowledge of certain strains and their characteristics that help ACP to gain a definable advantage in the organically grown cannabis industry.

ACP’s partners use proprietary soil as well as recreated Jamaican natural supplements and environments to produce a product with more yield, faster growth, higher THC levels and more pronounced terpenes than the industry standard. 

The company is based in Northern California’s Emerald Triangle and distributes its ZÜK brand proprietary strains to partner California distributors and its own Michigan retail location. About 80 percent of its product is supplied to licensees for manufacturing, distribution and retail. 

Jamaica has long been a destination for pot, reggae and Rastafarians but has officially maintained a “just say no” approach to the leafy green drug. Terpene tourists recognize that enforcement is spotty and that the country has made some small decriminalization efforts in recent years. 

But last year’s heavy hurricane season, followed by a scorching drought this year, along with COVID pandemic-induced increases in local consumption and declines in the number of marijuana farmers, have caused tens of thousands of dollars in losses and shortages of bud on the street (

California and Michigan have state-legal marijuana industries for adult recreational use, providing a fertile field of opportunity for ACP’s profile of raw product in multiple forms at wholesale prices for both medical and recreational use. 

The overall cannabis industry is growing rapidly in the United States, spurred on by the rapid adoption of plant-tolerant legislation in varying degrees of expression throughout the states and the federal Farm Bill legislation that made hemp a deregulated agricultural product. The U.S. cannabis industry alone is expected to reach $30 billion in market value annually by 2025 (

All of which portends optimism for the future of ACP’s efforts.
