Company: Green Dot Labs
Title: Co-founder and CEO
Alana Malone sees Green Dot Labs, the best-selling live resin brand in Colorado, as a “natural extension” of her prior career as a home-grower and caregiver for patients in the medical marijuana market.
Malone and her husband, Dave, have spent years developing the company’s genetics, with an eye on terpene and cannabinoid content. Confident they had “something special” to offer medical patients, the couple in 2013 founded Green Dot Labs, launching into Colorado’s medical market in 2014 and then into the rec market in 2017.
“We saw a home for ourselves in the legal cannabis industry by bringing our decades of genetic development and indoor cultivation into the medical cannabis space,” she says.
The company handles all aspects of production, seed to sale, from the hundreds of unique genetics to the cultivation to the harvesting and manufacturing, all with a focus on the details at every level to create a pure, flavorful cannabis experience.
“It’s the same experience you’d have if you stuck your head into the living plant,” she says. “At Green Dot Labs, everything begins with the genetic development and selection process.”
Green Dot Labs has annual sales of more than $23 million in the concentrates category, second in the state.
Malone says the company has trouble meeting demand for its products, but recently purchased a new cultivation facility with plans of offering its highly popular, but limited-run solvent-less concentrates and flower products on a permanent basis.
“We’re hiring every day,” she says.
