Expansion, Pesticides and Colorado’s Marijuana Tax Holiday: Q&A With LivWell Owner John Lord


LivWell has quickly built a cannabis empire in Colorado, growing from one dispensary in 2010 to nearly a dozen medical and recreational marijuana storefronts that generate tens of millions of dollars in sales annually.

It’s now one of the largest marijuana retail chains in the state – and in the country, for that matter.

While navigating its meteoric growth, the company has had to adjust to new regulations and numerous challenges along the way. One of the latest examples: LivWell, which operates massive grow sites to supply its storefronts, was caught up in a large pesticide quarantine in April. But it ultimately prevailed, and Denver officials released the company’s inventory.

Marijuana Business Daily caught up with owner John Lord to talk about LivWell’s expansion, the recent pesticide issue and Colorado’s upcoming marijuana tax holiday. Following are excerpts of that conversation, edited for length and clarity.
