Our story begins with a patient. When a family member sought treatment outside of Pennsylvania – in a state where medical marijuana was legal – our founder, Samuel P. “Pat” Black, III, acknowledged the need to advocate for patients within the Commonwealth and to develop an alternative solution of relief. From this experience, Calypso Enterprises was created.
In July 2018, Calypso was awarded one of the 13 coveted Phase II Grower/Processor licenses through the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program.
