About Equilibrium Genetics

Jason Matthys, founder of Equilibrium Genetics.

Jason Matthys, founder of Equilibrium Genetics, has a background in cannabis policy activism. In his hometown of Woodbridge, Virginia, Jason became involved in the cannabis movement where he founded a chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), while organizing political and educational events in Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. He is a former organizer of the D.C. Marijuana March and a recipient of SSDP’s Outstanding Activist Award.

In 2014, Jason began organizing the cannabis movement in Santa Cruz County to defend the rights of patients and cultivators. In coordination with many other activists, he founded a now defunct organization known as the Cannabis Advocates Alliance. This group of activists helped to organize a successful local referendum to overturn a cannabis cultivation ban in 2015.

Jason continues this work through local, State and National organizing efforts aimed at continuing the legacy of cannabis reformers from previous generations. He promotes policies that expand the rights of home cultivators, remove barriers of entry to the cannabis industry, and allow for the compassionate gifting of cannabis to those who cannot afford it.

From humble beginnings in 2012, Equilibrium Genetics has grown into one of the largest and best known cannabis genetics companies in the State of California. Equilibrium Genetics continues to adhere to their mission of providing high quality cannabis genetics of diverse varieties to Californians.
