Edward has always had a passion in advocating for cannabis rights.  He possesses over ten years experience in growing and recently left his job as IT Director to pursue a small family owned cultivation business out of Newburyport, Massachusetts.  While he has faced many challenges along the way, Edward learned from these setback to develop a model that works for any income bracket.  Edward now dedicates his time outside of his company to aid other potential small businesses.  Edward feels the heart of the cannabis community can survive with the strength of small business.
