We had the good fortune of connecting with Damon Epps and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Damon, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
The Marijuana industry is booming and has grown so much over the years, I had to create a lane for myself. Creating products for stoners, was a great way for me to wiggle my way onto the scene, without selling flowers. How can people smoke, without my products? They can’t! I have not only created products, but I’ve created necessites; the toiletries for smoking, if you may.

What should our readers know about your business?
The Hi’End District looks to provide a more elegant, grown & sexy element to the marijuana industry. Our items are designed to be sleek and alluring, from our low rider inspired rolling papers to our solid gold kashers. Right now I’m highly excited about our new all black Hemp paper Premium Cones with Gold filters. I’m eager to see how people receive them as well as partnering with growers & dispensaries for exclusive pre-roll releases. As of today we have had product available in 15 locations across several states. I attribute our success to simple passion & perseverance, we are passionate about what we do & refuse to take no for an answer. Like most things the toughest part is “How do we get started”, in 2017 me & my brother traveled coast to coast for all sorts of leads & connections. We went from Canna-Cons out west to Sparks business gatherings in Maryland, & met all types of people to help with promo, media & packaging. We have learned to take the risk, starting a business is risky in itself but every day is crazy beautiful roller coaster.

“The Hi’End District was built by the doers, the narrative changers, those who refuse to lose.”
