There are a lot of things that California produces well: movies, wine, and yes, cannabis. Today’s guest knows all about that. Kyle Kazan is co-founder and CEO of Glasshouse Brands, a vertically integrated sustainable producer of cannabis products.
In 1991, he began investing in real estate, and became a manager of private equity funds. He’s now launched a total of 23 funds with a current estimated value of almost $3 billion.
In 2016 Kyle pivoted to the regulated cannabis industry. Since his early service as a special education teacher and law enforcement officer, Kyle’s been a vocal advocate for police reform and ending the war on drugs.
He makes frequent appearances on CNN and Fox and has been a guest professor at NYU, USC, and UCLA’s business schools. Kyle’s a graduate of University of Southern California where he played varsity basketball, and his long and varied career made for a great conversation.
