Ian was thrilled to join the CBD News Team in 2021. And we’re thrilled to have him!

Ian brings years of experience in the cannabis industry to the table, having started the first compassionate caregiver organization in Arizona in 2010 and then helped launch the largest operating state licensed industrial cultivation center in Arizona. From there, he opened the largest state licensed dispensary. He began working alongside regulators and health department officials, and together they researched and developed optimal dosing protocols, standardizing them across the board.

Ian began his own CBD brand, Source CBD in 2013. He is a regular contributor to various cannabis publications, including Cannabis & Tech Today, High Times, Cannabis Magazine, and Innovation & Tech Today.

Ian lives in Arizona with his family, consulting with some of the brightest minds in the Cannabis industry, and continually researching and developing ways to bring a greater understanding of the benefits and science of CBD to the world.
