Andrew Farber, Esq.
Mr. Farber is our chief executive officer and our chief compliance officer. He has operated a commercial law practice in Florida since 1987, and brings over 33 years of legal and compliance experience to our management team.
Mr. Farber’s life changed when one of his daughters contracted a rare, debilitating autoimmune condition that caused the tissue between her skin and muscles to become fibrotic and harden, leading to the loss of the full use of her hands and lower limbs. She was initially treated her with mega-doses of steroids and a host of other anti-rejection drugs, each of which caused serious and unbearable side effects. His daughter halted her pharmaceutical treatments and began to self medicate with cannabis, which miraculously controlled her condition without any adverse effects. She now leads a normal life, has married, and has started a family.
Upon seeing the profound effect that cannabis had on his daughter’s life, Mr. Farber wound down his legal practice, started the Company, and decided to open up medical cannabis and wellness practices in the hope of helping others who couldn’t tolerate the effects of, or who became resistant to, their conventional medicines. He remains grateful for the opportunity to do so.
Mr. Farber earned his law degree from the American University Washington College of Law in Washington, DC, and earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York.

His appointments to the faculty of Georgia Health Sciences University and the Medical College of Georgia allow him to educate young physicians and physician assistants regarding the importance of preventative medicine, plant based nutrition and medicine, and emotional well-being, and enables him to offer them years of insight regarding both medicine based and alternative treatment healing approaches that factor in emotional and spiritual factors as a means of promoting better overall healing and improved outcomes.
