Travis Lane has been cultivating cannabis for over 20 years. He grew up without any of the typical stigma associated with the cannabis plant, and became fully focused on cannabis as a career in 2010.

An organic, living-soil-based cultivator, Travis has advocated strongly for the facilitation of pesticide free, sun grown, organic cannabis production. He is a long-time participant in BC’s cannabis economy, having been involved in the founding of numerous small cannabis businesses over the last decade.

Since 2015, Travis has helped found and expand a successful chain of storefront dispensaries, a thriving online mail order service, and one of the most successful hydrocarbon extraction brands in the country. In several cases he helped secure municipal licensing for illicit cannabis businesses.

With pending legalization, Travis has recently refocused his business interests, divesting from the illicit market. His latest ventures include Levity Solutions, a multi-purpose cannabis consultancy focused on cultivation and extraction methods for licensed producers, and Groundwork Consulting, a government relations firm that focuses on small businesses in the cannabis space.

As a founding director of the BC Independent Cannabis Association Travis has created widespread connections within government, providing feedback and advice to several governmental bodies.

With consultation clients that include ACMPR applicants and aspiring micro-cultivators, Travis maintains deep connections on both sides of the cannabis industry in BC.
