GMR Executive Spotlight Q&A:

Most successful professional accomplishment before cannabis: Having my first company NMRKT acquired by XO Group and getting to watch the technology live on far beyond my time there.

Company Mission: To bring the cleanest, meanest and greenest cannabis to a dispensary near you. Aster Farms is dedicated to sustainable practices and organic inputs only. We value good genetics, clean cultivation and the power of nature and aim to show consumers how cleaner cannabis means a cleaner high. 

Company’s most successful achievement: Bouncing back from the Mendocino Complex Fire. Our farm burned down completely and it took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to push through and get back up and operating. A year ago, we were burning to the ground, today we’re in 35 dispensaries and delivery services all across California.

Any plans on raising capital in the future? Yes, a Series A next year.Most important company 5 year goal: To educate consumers about what’s in their cannabis and why clean, sustainable techniques are not only better for you, but produce a cleaner high. We want to help break the stigma and education is the way we plan to do that.
