Cannabis Consulting Firm

Human Capital Advisement, Executive Search & Consulting Services for the Cannabis & Psychedelic Industries

We’ve found great success in the retained cannabis recruitment space along with other nature and science-based providers. Holding in-depth conversations with cannabis and psychedelics executive teams and leaders to deeply understand the organizational nuances and needs has been one key to our understanding of how to best help fill in talent gaps. We also realized a greater need for custom strategic cannabis consulting beyond human capital.
