LAS VEGAS, May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sin City Cultivation, Inc. is excited to welcome Ben Burkhardt as its master grower. With more than 18 years of infused product, retail and growing expertise, Burkhardt is a key addition to the Sin City Cultivation operations. "Sin City Cultivation has assembled a strong team with the capacity to capitalize on the emerging Nevada market," says Burkhardt. "We share a passion for the cannabis industry as well as a commitment to quality and innovation."
Burkhardt entered San Francisco's adolescent medical marijuana industry as a patient-cultivator in 1998, working with collectives such as Berkeley Patient's Group and C.H.A.M.P. He moved his business to Los Angeles in 2003, where he was an active member of LAPCG, one of the first dispensaries in Los Angeles County. Frustrated with the lack of regulatory guidance in California, he founded a business in Denver, Colorado, which became the largest indoor grow facility in the country with an award winning infused products division and more than a dozen retail locations. Under his leadership, the company grew vigorously, employing more than 450 personnel and commanding approximately 12% of the sales volume in the regulated Colorado market during between 2013 and 2014.
In addition to directing all operations as owner/operator, Burkhardt navigated his businesses through the burgeoning Colorado medical marijuana industry adapting to major regulatory and policy shifts like the Cole Memo, House Bill 1284 Vertical Integration, Pesticide regulation, and most importantly the legalization of recreational marijuana in 2013.
"We are excited to have Ben on board and ready to roll," said Daniel Caravette, CEO of Sin City Cultivations, Inc. "He will be instrumental to elevating Sin City Cultivation from its developmental stage, to that of an industry-leading cultivator."
