Our story begins with a journey into holistic health and community empowerment.

Hi there! We are ‘The Derps’ and this is Sudo, our beloved Alaskan Klee Kai. If this is your first time here, she is the ‘face’ of our brand and inspiration behind our work. How it all began was more of a happy accident, but we couldn’t be more thrilled with how far its come. Living in the city where the hustle is real, we faced common, real life issues that afflict many high performing professionals. We lost track of our health and thus came anxiety-induced panic attacks. Luckily, we found plant medicine and we found our new ‘normal.’ It later became apparent that we would also benefit from an emotional support dog in our lives. Having Sudo led to our most inspired yet.

What started out as a playful challenge see if we could teach Sudo to paint, later turned into a nourishing creative outlet for us all-- we had fun and she development new skills (and got lots of treats).

Her artwork has become a vehicle towards making an impact in the health and wellness industries.
We are firm believers in the right to accurate and accessible information, especially when it pertains to the cannabis industry. As such, when you buy a piece of her art, we deliver a canna-gift as a token of our appreciation. Everything is sourced with clean ingredients and minimal processing in mind.

Moreover, when you buy a piece of Sudo’s art, we donate a portion of our profits to the Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.

We are all about paying things forward. While our business started out a humble effort to share our own health and healing journey, it morphed into a larger scale campaign towards education and advocacy.
