"EGP is proud to be vertically-integrated from seed to sale, with a deep commitment to providing quality products, industry knowledge and transparency with our guests."
Under the leadership of Buchman, who began his career in the cannabis industry shortly after Michigan legalized medical marihuana in 2009, EGP's cultivation team has decades of combined industry experience.
