About Viola

Viola is the leading Black-owned producer and licensed reseller of premium cannabis products. Founded in 2011, the brand was inspired by co-founder Al Harrington's grandmother, who had long suffered from glaucoma. He convinced her to try cannabis, which relieved her symptoms, demonstrating the power of the plant. This pivotal experience inspired Harrington to name his company after his grandmother and begin his journey as CEO of Viola Brands.

Viola's mission is to increase equity within the cannabis space to ensure black and brown people are afforded an opportunity to be a part of a fast-growing industry that historically has left them disenfranchised. With over 10 years of experience growing premium flower and producing award-winning extracts, Viola offers a wide variety of strains and products across five states and throughout Canada.

One flower at a time. One community at a time.
