Livasis believes that a license to grow and produce medical cannabis is an opportunity to participate in an industry that will have a profound impact on the quality and choice of medical care for Maryland’s medical cannabis patients. As a minority, the CEO recognized that many minorities would be reluctant to participate in an industry where so many families were displaced by the disparate treatment of minorities in the criminalization of marijuana. However, she wanted to position herself to be at the forefront of the medical cannabis industry. In so doing, she has brought together a team of highly qualified and accomplished professionals with in-depth knowledge and experience in cannabis cultivation and processing, plant genetics, clinical chemistry, and molecular biology. Her goal is to promote the benefits of the use of medical cannabis and to produce a products the public can trust. Her vision for the company is to simply help people improve their quality of life by producing the cleanest and purest medical cannabis products as a natural health care alternative.
