State Flower Cannabis CEO Daniel Wacks believes that when cultivation is your core competency and California’s cannabis legacy guides your work, the world is your garden.
With one eye toward the surf visible through his Santa Cruz apartment’s bathroom window and the other on his spare-bedroom grow, life was pretty simple for Daniel Wacks 15 years ago. “I got a lot of surf breaks, got a lot of smoke breaks—and I would plant, harvest, vacation, repeat. My only professional ambitions were to one day have a warehouse full of weed,” Wacks recalls.
With those warehouse ambitions satisfied nearly 10 years ago, State Flower Cannabis has morphed into something bigger than those early dreams and launched Wacks on the wild, wonderful ride of being State Flower’s CEO today.
