Pilgrim Soul, founded by Shawn Gold (CEO), is a cannabis lifestyle brand that aims to help people improve their creative thinking and give them a competitive edge in work and life. Pilgrim Soul launched in October 2020. It has since created The Creative Thinking Journal (available in CA), and premium Live Resin Vape Pens (available for purchase in CA). These products are designed to unlock creativity and help open the mind. The Live Resin Vape Pens are made from the best cannabis strains and can be found at some of California’s most renowned retailers, such as Sweet Flower and MedMen. Pilgrim Soul worked with scientists from AbstraxLabs to analyze 100+ cannabis strains for creativity. They also considered secondary and tertiary mental states. They identified the common cannabinoid profiles of each strain and developed a matrix that blends select strains to improve a specific type of creativity.
