An Insider's view of Green Thumb

What projects are you most excited about?

I enjoy supporting initiatives that help people impacted by the War on Drugs, like our Good Green movement.

What is your vision for the company?

We believe in the positivity of cannabis and the viability of this industry in the U.S. Our mission is to promote well-being through the power of cannabis while giving back to the communities we serve. Americans are choosing cannabis and it’s an exciting dynamic to be part of a leading company in a brand-new industry, forging new ground.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We operate across multiple states nationwide, so the biggest technical challenge can be the lack of clarity on what can and cannot be done. Each state requires different technological, both hardware and software, needs. This requires complete flexibility and communication between all parties involved.
