You should never judge a book by it’s cover.

Well, it’s been a month since I have joined Shadowbox Farms. And what I have found is a smart robust company facing all the challenges that any start-up in an emerging industry deals with. Many have been trying to catch the wave and capitalize on this new exciting market. Some will succeed and many will fail. The single most important factor will be the people involved. I think outside the industry there is the belief that it’s just a bunch of stoners growing weed. That could not be farther from the truth! I have found some of the smartest people I have ever worked with. Committed to the craft and with an abundance of passion and love for the product and each other.

The excitement for helping to educate and break down some of the barriers is a big motivator for many in the industry. This is a tough business with tons of regulations and societal bias. Building any successful business is difficult, doing it with a stigma, governmental pressure and ignorance requires smart committed people. Luckily at Shadowbox Farms, we have many. I have been so impressed with the talent of the people in both our Portland office and the farm in Williams, Oregon. I’m excited by the future and all this industry can and will be. I know we have the right people to get us there.

Committed to being Stewards of the cannabis industry, the people at Shadowbox see beyond the current hurdles. They are working hard to ensure that we are operating a world-class company producing authentically crafted sun-grown cannabis. Which requires much more than a bunch of stoners.
