JOSHUA HARTSEL, PH.D. – CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Having been a chemist since 2001 and directly working in the CA Cannabis market since 2011, it’s no surprise that cannabis extraction has been a personal and professional interest in Joshua’s life. Most of his work in graduate school (Virginia Tech, with a postdoc in Public Health at UCI) was on designing pesticides for malaria control with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Pesticides are a challenge in the cannabis industry and this expertise has significant translational significance. Moreover, his education in medicinal organic chemistry has acted as a catalyst in transitioning into cannabis extraction and testing. Fueled with a love of building automated, streamlined botanical extraction solutions, some of his greatest accomplishments include awards in High Times Cannabis Cups, Patents and Book Chapter written with some industry giants. An additional accomplishment was building the first end-to-end computer controlled extraction system capable of high throughput oil production in a licensed California facility. Pioneering the latest in technology, through science and engineering in the cannabis extraction industry, Josh is revolutionizing the landscape for years to come.
