This incredible team of cannabis professionals offered so many insights throughout the hour, we cannot wait for our next webinar! Below are some of our favorite moments: 

On growth: 

“There [are] opportunities for people to get drunk with the opportunity of expansion versus focusing on expansion that really enables them to fully flourish the core component of their brand and take it to a market where it’s going to be successful”    

Ryan Brown 

CEO, Native Roots 

On cannabis license applications: 

“If you’re thinking about starting up in a new place, make sure you’re seeing advice from the outset from a consultant or a lawyer. I’ve seen a trend where ownership and financial disclosures are becoming more invasive . . . assume everyone must be disclosed and if you don’t want to be disclosed, this might not be the business for you”   

Simone Sandoval 

Director of Licensing & Compliance, Global Go 

On social justice: 

“I have also been spending a lot of time looking at the plight of our prisoners, 40,000 + prisoners incarcerated on cannabis charges whose already unjust sentences may very well become a death sentence” 

Steve DeAngelo 

Co-Founder, Harborside
