The partnership will donate the company’s tech-enabled personal filtration device, the Philter Phlip, to Veterans Cannabis Group (VCG) for every Philter product sold and match the total amount sold for donation to VCG

San Diego, CAPhilter Labs — the first and only technology-enabled filtration company to pioneer a new category of micro-sized personal air filters to eliminate the impacts of secondhand smoke — announced a partnership today with veteran advocacy organization, Veterans Cannabis Group, to donate a Philter Phlip for every Philter product purchased on Memorial Day. Philter Labs will also match the total amount sold on Memorial Day to donate to the organization to help its members and organization’s goals. Philter Labs is known for leveraging first-of-its-kind science and patented technology to advocate for an individual’s right to vape responsibly and reduce up to 97% of harmful emissions from secondhand smoke and vape.

“We are proud that, through our partnership with Veterans Cannabis Group, we can empower veterans struggling with PTSD and anxiety by providing a guilt-free way to consume cannabis and reduce the impact of harmful emissions to others and our environment,” said John Grimm, CTO and Co-Founder of Philter Labs. “As a Navy Veteran, it is essential for us to do our part in supporting the brave men and women who honorably served our country.” 

Veterans Cannabis Group (VCG) is an advocacy group of Veterans for Veterans who advocate and support the use of medicinal cannabis to treat the symptoms of combat related PTSD. VCG provides education, safe access, information on Veteran Administration resources and benefits, and employment and networking opportunities for veterans in the cannabis industry. Also central to VCG, is their mission to strengthen relationships between veteran communities and local cannabis businesses and governments, in addition to supporting veteran owned cannabis businesses from cultivation to retail. As cannabis sales and usage continues to spike during COVID-19, the partnership with Philter Labs will allow veterans to continue to consume medical cannabis, without the added stress of secondhand smoke, while communities work to manage the economic and psychological impacts of the pandemic. 

“Our goal is to provide resources, safe access, and information for veterans who consume medicinal cannabis,” said Aaron Augustis, Founder of Veterans Cannabis Group. “We can provide all three through our partnership with Philter Labs. Our veterans will get the benefit of using a high quality personal filtration device to help treat the stress-related mental illnesses that can result from combat, while learning about the importance of reducing secondhand smoke and vape emissions to protect their loved ones and the environment.” 

Veterans have long advocated for legal access to medical marijuana to help with PTSD, anxiety, and other illnesses after returning home from their service. As lawmakers begin to acknowledge the need for an alternative form of medication, Philter Labs will continue to help VCG shift the stigma against medical cannabis use for veterans by providing access to cutting-edge products that effectively reduce emissions and allow veterans to vape responsibly. 

The one-for-one partnership will take place on Memorial Day for 24-hours and will donate a Philter Phlip to VCG for each Philter product purchased at no extra cost to the consumer. The company will also match the total amount sold during that 24-hour period to donate to the VCG.  Consumers can take part in Philter’s mission to lead a cultural shift for more responsible vaping and advocate for veterans by purchasing a Philter product on Memorial Day. 

Philter’s next-generation filtration technology, crafted by a team of industry experts, scientists and engineers, is specifically designed to reduce the impact of secondhand smoke and shift the culture of vaping to one that focuses on collective social responsibility.
