Cannareps

Adolfo Gonzalez is co-founder of Cannareps, a cannabis education company known for creating the Cannabis Sommelier program. Adolfo has dedicated most of his life to cannabis advocacy and research, establishing some of the first recorded cannabis-based social assistance programs in Vancouver's DTES, including the first peer-reviewed opiate substitution study that provided cannabis to members of this community. As an advocate, Adolfo was one of the key lobbyists that pushed the city of Vancouver to regulate local dispensaries before the federal government did. Today, Adolfo works full-time as Headmaster of Cannareps, while dedicating his free time to family, art, music, and growing the world's finest ganja.
