In early 2015 the Massachusetts cannabis market was desperately underserved. Products available were illicit, untested, and inconsistent or only available to medical patients at dispensaries Where consumers were commonly an AFTERTHOUGHT.

To solve this problem, founders Angela Brown and Brian Cusick began exploring new approaches to infuse cannabis oil with high quality ingredients. After working with a local chef, the pair were inspired to create Natural & Organic edibles, truly embodying cannabis as a wellness product. Working with expert cannabis cultivators, certified analytics laboratories, and a lot of trial and error, T. Bear was born. T. Bear was created from the desire to provide consistent products created from the highest quality ingredients, dependable, and enjoyable to consume - not only for patients but for all lifestyles!

After navigating the difficult local & state process T. Bear Inc. was awarded licensing and developed Coast Cannabis, the first branded product line created for consumers in Massachusetts. COAST sets itself apart from the others through artisan processing, high quality ingredients, and consistent, dependable products.

With quality, integrity and consumer focus, COAST will provide the safest, most dependable products and lead the way forward through innovation, consumer insight, and constant improvement.
