Maple Leaf Green World (NEO:MGW, OTCQB:MGWFF) is an Alberta-based company with cannabis facilities in Telkwa, British Columbia and Henderson, Nevada. The company is set to release its first crop of product into soon to be legalized Canadian cannabis market in early 2019.
Maple Leaf is committed to producing high-quality product, implementing sustainable cultivation practices. To this effect, the company announced its extraction and cultivation teams this past summer, which include Head of Cultivation and Cannabis Technology, Kenneth Suydam among other known names in the industry.
In a recent article, The GrowthOp interviewed Suydam about the experience he brings to his current position and the vision he has for cannabis cultivation. Using the passion for gardening that he got from his father, Suynab started growing cannabis as a remedy for his own anxiety. He then worked with industry professionals like Nick Tanem from Essential Extracts, developing an expertise in full genetic potential. He has since become an award-winning grower, having taken second place for Indica and Hybrid categories at the first High Times Cannabis Cup in 2014, and coming first for the Rosin title at the Chalice Awards in 2015.
Suydam currently leads Maple Leaf’s team at the Nevada cultivation facility, and he still is very much involved in the growing process. He understands the need to make adjustments for each strain, and that there is no ‘cookie-cutter’ approach to growing cannabis. “To produce optimum renditions of anything, an individualized approach is necessary,” he is quoted as saying.
