As one of the most diverse and wide-ranging industries in North America, cannabis has leaders, advocates, CEOs and visionaries who are just as varied as the businesses they represent. They, like the industry, are still young, with each year bringing countless breakthroughs, crises, disruptions and new players. This year looks to be no different.
Every 12 months, every year, the editorial staff at Marijuana Venture has compiles a list of candidates for our annual 40 Under 40 feature. We narrow our lists down from hundreds of worthy candidates to come up with a cross-section of personalities across the U.S. and Canada, from salt-of-the-earth farmers to tech savants. All of them have unique stories, successes and ambitions and all represent the excitement and promise of the cannabis business. We feel honored to share their stories and look forward to watching them push forward in our ever-evolving industry.
