Mike makes a variety of personal edible/topical cannabis products he has developed over the years with the help of his brother & chef, Ryan. After 17 years growing cannabis and 7 years running a small market garden, he is strongly rooted in the discussion of indoor/outdoor cannabis and food production. Seeing plants(gardens) strengthen the vitality of communities, Mike continues to take part in this re-connection process through education on indoor and outdoor cultivation practices.

Among the first 680 legal cannabis patients under Health Canada’s MMAR, he began to look for explanations as to why cannabis was working so well for him medicinally. His years of independent research yielded thousands of studies/abstracts, creating a database, including testimonies and CannaBlogs @ freedomwares.ca. As a former Construction Electrician and Safety Officer, Grow Room Safety is a high priority, providing electrical inspections to cannabis patients. Devin firmly believes we have the technology to properly get from germination to final product in our own homes.
