Chef Rachel King has worked locally as the pastry chef of La Jolla's NINE-TEN restaurant and as the corporate pastry chef for all of Enlightened Hospitality Restaurants (Searsucker, Herringbone) when Brian Malarkey still owned the company. Rachel’s dessert creations have been written about in publications such as,, and more, and she was nominated for Food & Wine magazine’s "Best New Pastry Chefs of 2013." Rachel grew up in San Diego and is a graduate of San Diego State University and the San Diego Culinary Institute.

Along with local cannabis entrepreneur Jesse Heinowitz and a group of partners, Kanah Co. launched its lineup of THC and CBD-infused brownies in 2019. Offerings include cookies, vegan and gluten free bites, fruit jellies, caramels, and chocolates. The company also provides white label products for other companies, including jellies, cookies, brownies, and hard candies. Kaneh Co. products can be found at approximately 200 different dispensaries across California, including locally at most storefront shops like Torrey Holistics, SDRC, and March & Ash. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Kaneh Co. was able to stay open as an essential business and has been thriving ever since.
