This week on The Green Rush we’re chatting with Sol Clahane, Vice President and General Manager, U.S. Region for Canopy Growth. Sol oversees all of Canopy’s commercial operations and brands available in the U.S. market, including BioSteel, First & Free, This Works and the recently launched Martha Stewart CBD product portfolio.
With a deep background in beverages and CPG, our hosts sat down with Sol to talk about making the switch to the cannabis industry, the major partnership between Martha Stewart and Canopy, the organization’s work with Constellation and what’s next for the company as it looks to expand its footprint in the U.S. Additionally we talk with Sol about the importance of female leadership and diversity in the upper echelon of the space, what it is like to work with a celebrity of Martha Stewart’s stature and how she talks to her daughter about working in cannabis and CBD.
As one of the major players in North American cannabis, Canopy Growth is a trendsetter for the industry and Sol’s leadership is one of the reasons why. So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy our conversation!
