Helmand Valley Growers Company

Helmand Valley Growers Company with Bryan Buckley, Matt Curran, and Andy Miears founders of HVGC. Conceived from the stresses of battle, to help everyone battling day-to-day life. We’re on a mission to help put an end to the opioid and suicide epidemic plaguing our Nation’s Heroes. We believe that exploring the benefits of medical cannabis is the most effective way to combat these issues and bring proper aid to those who gave so much for our great nation. HVGC was founded by the United States Special Operations Veterans (Marine Raiders). Since its inception, HVGC has been in discussions with some of the cannabis industry’s top researchers and has developed a veteran based protocol to effectively prove the benefits of medical cannabis. HVGC is supported and essentially ran by three Marine Raiders that served following 9-11. Over time, and through HVGC presentations and seminars, the principals of HVGC realized a recreational brand will be a monetary success and will help fund the ultimate mission of HVGC, providing medical cannabis to the veterans of our United States Military.

As a service-disabled veteran-owned business, HVGC is intimately aware of the daily challenges that their fellow veteran brothers and sisters face as a result of their time spent on the battlefield. Some of these wounds are not visible to the naked eye. When the U.S. Military deploys to the combat theater, roughly 60% of those deployed will be prescribed opioids upon return to the United States, and over half will develop a dependency/addiction. This has caused far too many vets to lose their way, and in an ever-increasing pandemic, take their own lives. HVGC began its outreach into the veteran community by observing first-hand and listening to the suffering of our veterans. They knew right then that our cause was worthy; and that their mission was defined. HVGC’s next step moved them into researching medical cannabis and speaking with the top experts in the field. As their research progressed, the answer to this crisis became clear: develop alternate medical solutions for those suffering from pain, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, sleep disorders, and most critically, are at a significant risk of suicide.
