Cannabis for the People

Pioneers blazing a trail in modern cannabis.

Growing in Colorado since 2013.

Founded in Colorado Springs, Colorado

From the early days of cannabis legalization in Colorado, we've been expanding our scale and creating unique standards of operations for vertically-integrated cannabis enterprises in the cannabis marketplace. Today, we continue to blaze a path in multiple states, expanding and growing our operations in our home State of Colorado, as well as, acquiring assets in multiple states throughout the nation.

North Star Holdings is a rapidly growing U.S.-based, vertically integrated, cannabis operator in states where medical and/or adult-use cannabis is legal. Through our TweedLeaf brands we operate a number of medical and adult-use dispensaries throughout Colorado.  To supply our dispensaries, via our chain of cultivation companies, we own thousands of feet of cultivation and manufacturing facilities that produce cannabis flower, concentrate, and oils that serve our patients and customers.
