Aaron has been an advocate of cannabis since his early twenties as a way to help with anxiety, depression and an undiagnosed case of ADHD. Now being forty three, married twelve years and with a young child at home, Aaron still continues to pursue cannabis for the same reasons. “I found cannabis allows me to set my own pace and needs, while also helping to support my mental health”.
After close to two decades working in the hospitality sector as a career chef, Aaron felt it was time to hang up his apron and branch out to what he loved most, spreadsheets and data science. He laterally moved within his organization to work as a Financial Analyst and one of his first projects was to help design and build out the concept that is now Flight Cannabis Co.
Aaron enjoys tinkering in his garage, building forts with his daughter or spending the day at the beach with his family.

Adam’s first experience with cannabis wasn’t until age twenty four, as he spent most of his adolescence with his head in the books pushing for a future in medicine. When Adam returned from a hiatus of travelling for two years, he had a renewed passion for health, which included modalities outside of the standard western health care system. He dove into subjects like nutrition, yoga, sensory deprivation, and therapeutic herbal medicine. This coincided with his first job in the cannabis industry at a local LP in British Columbia. After cloning, growing, and trimming for six months, he made a move into the retail market as a cannabis consultant and have enjoyed working in sales and management for the cannabis industry since 2015.
“I am just so grateful to be a part of this early stage in the legal market, and am excited about what the future holds in terms of new products, improved packaging, and increased scientific backing for the incredible capabilities that this plant has.”
