MJ Distro is wholly owned, operated and staffed by U.S. Disabled Veterans who truly believe in the benefits hemp and CBDs can offer. Proudly serving Central New York, MJ Distro is excited to promote these benefits to communities in their region. After an extensive search, MJ Distro couldn't be happier to have found Kona Gold. They feel Kona Gold's lineup perfectly fits their passion to promote healthy living in easily consumable, great tasting beverages.
McLain Distribution, located in Tennessee, is dedicated to their customer's satisfaction. They work with some of the highest quality brands in the country to deliver products to the greater middle Tennessee area.
