A high lifestyle & wellness brand created for the cannabis aficionado, novice and/or holistic wellness enthusiast. We look to establish and nurture a transformational space that appeals to both the curious and vested consumer while embracing normalization.
In an effort to amplify the Black and Brown experience in the cannabis industry and drive the desire to not only legalize marijuana, but #legalizeitright Natural High Company will host our Juneteenth Emancipation Edition of the “Plates and Plants” dinner series in Los Angeles, CA on Friday, June 17th. We want everyone to have a seat at the table to share in fellowship, impactful dialogue and meaningful solutions to ensure Black, Brown and community ally voices continue to make a difference in cannabis equity in both legacy and emerging markets. We will also donate funds in support of advocacy partner Fully Integrated, Inc. 501(c)3 to help support a BIPOC and/or women owned cannabis start-up.
It is essential that the cannabis business support minority and women-owned businesses in the cannabis industry, as well as consistently practice inclusivity and representation of the communities that have been so deeply affected by the prohibition of the plant, which helps so many. Through advocacy, education, and legislation we also intend to change the narrative in our community, encourage normalization, and support the reform needed to decriminalize and rectify the sentences of those caught in the crossfire of the “War on Drugs”.
#PlatesandPlants is an infused culinary and cannabis education experience created to elevate the senses and allow consumers a unique cannabis experience. We offer the opportunity for a complete sensory adventure for the canna-curious and connoisseur alike. This includes sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell. Our goal is to create a luxe and intimate cannabis experience, while also expanding mindsets, educating, and normalizing the plant.
Our 2023 Four Twenty Houston Edition of Plates & Plants will feature James Beard Nominated Chef Jonny Rhodes!
For Chef Jonathan Rhodes, cooking is about culture. Inspired by the desire to feed and provide for his community, Chef Jonny decided to take action by attending culinary school at the Art institute of Houston. Chef Jonny’s work experience is founded in time at several high-profile restaurants including Gramercy Tavern, The Inn at Dos Brisas, and Oxheart. During this time Rhodes was inspired to launch the Jensen Chronicles — a pop-up restaurant serving dishes that told the story of poverty on Jensen Drive.
Named after Rhodes’ childhood neighborhood, The Jensen Chronicles not only helped Rhodes hone his culinary identity, but also served as motivation for the young chef to pursue additional education via a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Houston-Downtown. Culminating these experiences, Rhodes’ ventured out to create — Indigo — a neo soulfood fine dining tasting menu experience, focused on dishes inspired by a blend of the suffrage of Aboriginal/ Black/ African Americans, his personal experiences and Houston’s Greater 5th Ward neighborhood where he grew up.
Making its debut in July 2018, Indigo brought a physical structure to the tastes of the Jensen Chronicles. Chef Rhodes’ presented a trio of rotating five-course tasting menus that were meant to not only tantalize the senses, but also provoke conversation about the history, culture, and social experiences that have shaped and guided Afro American foodways.
For this Chef Jonny Rhodes earned a semi-finalist nomination for James Beard Foundation in 2019 for Rising Star Chef of the Year Award, while Indigo also earned top spots on Food & Wine, GQ, Eater and Texas Monthly’s Best New Restaurants Lists as well as TIME’s “World’s 100 Greatest Places of 2019.” Before closing its doors April 11, 2021 Rhodes had already calculated how to convert the farm to table restaurant experience into a self-sustainable grocery store titled, Broham Fine Soulfood & Groceries supplied by Rhodes’ nearby Farm(s) titled, Food Fight Farms. Leaving his monumental restaurant in the past to take on the challenge, Food Apartheid & Agricultural Oppression in the local
community not only by constructing an eclectic 6 acre farm, but a retail space for those products; as well as products from other local farms and ranches.
From Jensen Chronicles, Indigo to Broham & Food Fight Farms Chef Rhodes’ mission is to continue advancing the culture through agriculture and land ownership as it represents the sacrifice and beauty of the Afro American experience — Self- Sustainable grocery store born out of necessity, but curated with love and skill. Striving to continue to shed light on the social responsibility of food preparation through his current initiative, Food Fight Farms future mission is to create more independent land ownership as means for producing food for ones-self or to barter.
