When you look at the extensive and beautifully displayed menu of boutique cannabis concierge ONA, you're sure to notice variety, quality, and a distinct focus on local partners.
What you won't see right away is that each of ONA's partners is selected by cofounder Nurit Raphael to align with ONA's own mission—a commitment to community, education, and giving back.
"The main thing we search for when bringing in new brands is their vision for giving back. How do they serve the community and what do they stand for?" says Raphael, one of three siblings whose names—Oren, Nurit, and Aviv—form the acronym, ONA.
Every product on ONA's shelves is not just a representation of quality and value but a building block for making the growing cannabis empire a driving force for good on the local, regional, and global level.
ONA is proud of its local niche market as a personalized service that's particularly popular with women, young parents, and busy professionals. More than just a delivery service, ONA provides personalized attention in the form of in-depth product education, exemplary customer service, and delivery that works around your schedule. Maybe that's part of why Ona received an excellence in service award from the San Francisco Chronicle.
Founded by a brother-sister duo, Ona aims to support women entrepreneurs, especially in the health and wellness industry. They recently partnered with clothing company Phat Buddha to deliver a playful range of athletic/leisure wear that supports women in feeling good inside and out.

The signature Elevate + Flow event is another example of how the company is working to destigmatize cannabis and bring it mainstream in the health and wellness community. Held in Healdsburg, the daylong retreat combines yoga, wellness, and cannabis education to shift perspectives around the role cannabis can play in a healthy lifestyle.
Ona gives back to the community through their Random Acts of Kindness initiative. In September, they pledged to help a struggling local family deal with medical bills for their hospitalized newborn by donating $1 from every sale to the family's GoFundMe until they reached their full goal.
"This is just the beginning of a project we plan to continue indefinitely," Raphael says. "Next, we've decided to turn our support towards a local Marin toddler dealing with a diagnosis of deaf/blindness. We're so happy that we can facilitate making this impact through our business and community connections."
