American Cannabis Company, a Denver-based consulting and ancillary marijuana products firm, signed a distribution deal to sell cultivation-related products through Walmart, The Home Depot and Amazon.
The two products approved for sale will be available online, not in the brick-and-mortar locations. SoHum Living Soils is a potting soil designed primarily for cannabis but can be used for other vegetation. “Dr. Marijane Root Probiotic is a soil additive.
“ACC is excited to have the opportunity to offer our products online through these major retailers. We are especially excited to be selling our proprietary SoHum Living Soils potting mix through these online channels, as we have spent years perfecting our blend, and fine-tuning the messaging around the brand itself,” CEO Terry Buffalo said in a statement.

“We are also proud to be offering Dr. Marijane Root Probiotic on these online platforms. This root probiotic is packed with all the beneficial microbes you need to awaken the nutrients in your soil or soil-less (hydroponic) medium,” Buffalo added.
According to Buffalo, his company will continue to evaluate other online retail platforms to sell its product line.
This is not the first soil company interested in reaching the cannabis farmer.
