Washington-based TriGrow made some key hires. TriGrow Brands is headed up by two very different execs with diverse branding backgrounds – former Coca Cola COO Phil Humphries and DOPE Magazine co-founder Trek Manzoni. TriGrow brought in Phil Humphries as they aim to create a full-service agency allowing cannabis cultivators to grow into consistent and efficient operators that have the capability to expand as much as they like. Like the ingredients that go into making Coca Cola a worldwide-recognized brand, TriGrow argues that the backbone of a brand is its ability to recreate the same product over and over – despite weather conditions or bugs or mold, common destroyers of cannabis crops that can be avoided using TriGrow Systems.
