CEO and founder of OM
Maya Elisabeth is the CEO and founder of OM, an award winning Cannabis company specializing in edibles, tinctures, topicals and Cannabis hydrotherapy. One of the first female owned and operated Cannabis companies in the country, OM was officially established in 2008 under prop 215 as the all female OM Grown Collective. Today through original formulation OM has won more than 40 industry awards of excellence including 22 Emerald Cups, 11 Hightimes Cups, and Best Of The Bay. OM’s awards span across multiple categories from edibles to topicals, tinctures, bath care and even concentrates. After serving medical patients under the collective model of Prop 215 for over a decade, OM was awarded the first adult use manufacturing license in California and thus once again, Maya made history as a woman in Cannabis.
In 2017 Maya co-founded Whoopi and Maya with Emmy & Oscar winner, Whoopi Goldberg. In addition to being one of the first mainstream celebrity co- branded cannabis lines, a multiracial women lead company was as groundbreaking as their signature line of products tailored to support women and their monthly cycle. Maya developed all the product formulations and was the company’s CEO until it ceased operating in 2020.
In 2019 Maya launched OM Wellness and began offering Hemp CBD / THC free versions of her products to customers directly, health stores, specialty retailers, spas and beyond, available for shipping worldwide.
Maya has a deep spiritual connection with the plant and believes cannabis is a birth right, in all forms for wellbeing, pleasure, enjoyment, and as a preventative. Maya’s philosophy of commitment to servitude through Cannabis is most evident in her high quality, multi-herb healing products, which she works hard to keep as some of the most accessible in the state. Maya’s work in cannabis has taken her around the world as a respected thought leader, educator, and concentrate judge. Maya’s been listed as one of The Top 100 Most Influential People & Women in Cannabis by High Times and Green Entrepreneur and continues to pave the way for the Cannabis movement.
