Our Story

David Yusefzadeh was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2011. As a Michelin Star Chef laboring 80 hours a week in restaurants, managing his stress, and getting rest was not an option. Balancing the life he loved with taking care of his health meant David had to turn to prescription medicines. After six different medications and two years on Remicade (the original chemotherapy drug), he knew it was time for a change: alternative medicine. Cannabis was already a part of David’s life in a social context. When he was in need of a wellness solution, he started visiting dispensaries and looking at the edibles that were available – only to find high-fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients. With his impressive culinary expertise, David knew there was an opportunity to bring all-natural ingredients with a story to the world of cannabis. And then, there was Plant Jam.
