About 1906 New Highs

1906 is revolutionizing self-care one edible at a time. We created a new category of cannabis to amplify health and happiness, which quickly put us on top as the fastest-growing brand in Colorado. We’ve innovated across R&D, manufacturing and marketing with breakthrough products that combine moderately-dosed THC with medicinal plants and adaptogens.

User-friendly, portable and thoughtfully engineered, they deliver curated effects within 20 minutes—faster than any other edible on the market. The rapid-onset formulations help users get the most out their days and nights, while staying pleasantly in control. We call it a toolkit for modern living. The industry calls it a giant leap forward.

1906 is available in Colorado, Oklahoma, Illinois, Massachusetts and Arizona.
