In 2006 Kenny co-founded two well-known medical cannabis collectives in West LA and Venice Beach, California. In 2008, Kenny founded Venice Cookie Company with the simple idea that cannabis edibles should be tasty, safe, and wellness oriented. The company, now known as VCC Brands, is a manufacturer and distributor of infused products including the top-selling Cannabis Quencher.
