THE RYAN DOUGLAS DIFFERENCE Unprecedented credentials in the cannabis industry
The cannabis industry is a burgeoning frontier, full of opportunity and uncertainty for many cannabis cultivation start-ups. Navigating this new territory, particularly within the first 3-6 months during the start-up phase of production, is crucial—and my area of expertise.
Leveraging 23 years of commercial horticulture experience, in addition to three years as the Master Grower and cultivation director for Tweed Inc.—Canada’s largest licensed producer of cannabis and the flagship subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation— I use my extensive experience to guide clients in launching their own cannabis cultivation start-ups.
During my tenure at Tweed Inc., I helped drive early success by designing their first cultivation facility, selecting their starter genetics, and hiring and training the team that would become the core foundation of Canopy’s cultivation success. Prior to entering the cannabis industry, I spent 15 years as a commercial greenhouse grower of ornamental and edible crops, growing up to 600,000 plants annually.
These experiences, in addition to the completion of multiple consulting projects across North and South America, have provided me with a comprehensive toolkit of best practices to assist clients and empower the growth and success of start-up companies.
