The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) profiles members on a regular basis, and recently it shared the background of Washington, D.C. cannabis entrepreneur Corey Barnette, who runs District Growers.
While the fate of establishing a well-regulated cannabis industry in the District of Columbia remains up the air, a small handful of medical marijuana dispensaries have been operating for several years to serve extremely ill patients in our nation’s capital. Located in the northeast neighborhood of our nation’s capital, District Growers is a close-knit, local business founded with the goal of creating only the highest quality cannabis products on the market. This month, we chat with owner Corey Barnette to hear more about efforts to serve the community of Washington, D.C.
Barnette, who has a background in investment banking and venture capital, entered the cannabis industry in 2008 when joined the Board of a collective in California, which he eventually acquired. In Washington, D.C., he founded District Growers as well as Metropolitan Wellness Center, a licensed dispensary that has market-share of about 33%.
At District Growers, Barnette focuses on quality, employing a philosophy of “Grow True.” The company is a beta partner for BioTrackTHC. Barnette is also actively involved in the local community as well as on the legislative and regulatory fronts.
