The Golden Apple, an ambivalent symbol, has fuelled numerous myths and legends over the centuries, as a symbol of health, prosperity and guarantee of eternal youth and immortality, but also as a root cause of fight and discord.

Inspired by the symbolism of the Golden Apple, and our strong belief that cannabis-based compounds like CBD, are the future of self-care and well-being, Gold Apple Cannabis Co. was born.


According to one version of the myth, and our favourite, Eris, the goddess of discord, was the only goddess not to be invited to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis.

When she turned up anyway and was refused admittance, she raged and threw a golden apple amongst the goddesses inscribed “To the fairest.”

This provoked a rivalry between Hera, Aphrodite, and Athena that lead up to a war, known today as the Trojan War.



Shawn Sherman and his wife Brooke began cultivating cannabis with the help of family over a decade ago. With a science degree from the University of Southern California, Shawn took his capabilities from the research world and applied them to everything cannabis. Shawn is a founding member of the local cannabis industry association, the Central Coast Cannabis Council.

With a background as a veterinary technician and a devoted yoga practice, Brooke has always preferred a natural way of healing. Naturally, she began creating cannabis derived tinctures and topicals for their animals, friends, and family.

Together with their dog Carl, Shawn and Brooke live on the Central Coast and love to contribute to the small-town vibe and friendly-welcoming atmosphere!
