Dr. Matt Wheatley, PhD
Director of Cultivation Education

Matt Wheatley began his career as a Cannabis grower by simultaneously planting his first garden and enrolling in university Botany courses. In pursuit of a deeper understanding of the biological processes underlying plant growth and development, Matt earned his BS in Botany at WSU, and then PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from UNR in Reno, NV, always applying what he learned to his own garden. Motivated by the recent decades during which real scientific research for this plant was not possible, Matt has continued to investigate Cannabis using solid scientific principles to design optimal growth environments and implement best practices for cultivation.

Parker Walton
Cultivation Education

Parker, originally from Virginia, has always had a passion for cannabis cultivation. While obtaining his B.S. in Earth Science, he gained a deeper appreciation and understanding of horticulture. This appreciation only fueled his passion for cannabis cultivation, and in 2013 he moved to Colorado to get involved in the newly regulated recreational cannabis industry. As now owner of CannaCraft LLC, Parker has gained firsthand experience from initial design through operation of a cannabis cultivation in a highly regulated industry.

Since 2015, Parker has been involved in a high-profile civil Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) case. This case questions the legitimacy of state regulated cannabis across the United States due to it being a federally Schedule 1 substance. Parker, and his company CannaCraft LLC, are continuing the fight today.
