MATTHEW HURON

Chief Executive Officer
Matthew Huron founded Good Chemistry Colorado in 2010 and is currently its Chief Executive Officer. A man of dedication, compassion, and with nearly two decades of experience in the cannabis industry, Matt is recognized as one of the most experienced cultivators and operators in the U.S.

An industry leader in best practices for cannabis cultivation and dispensing, Matt consistently has demonstrated a successful record of providing high-quality and compassionate service to both patients and customers, and a proficiency in running cannabis operations within several states.

Matt first became involved in the medical cannabis industry when his father and his father’s partner were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. In 1996, when medical marijuana became available in California, he saw firsthand the symptomatic relief patients experienced from this alternative medical treatment.

In 2000, he began cultivating and dispensing medical cannabis for HIV/AIDS patients throughout the Bay Area, and subsequently founded and operated one of the most respected and well-known nonprofit medical cannabis facilities in San Francisco, The Elmar Lins Compassion Co-Op.

From California to Colorado

After operating The Elmar Lins Compassion Co-Op for nearly a decade, Huron moved to Colorado in 2009, where regulation and legislation were being created for the developing medical cannabis industry, and co-founded Wellspring Collective which originally catered to seniors with health challenges and provides alternative medical services.

Matt also wanted to share his knowledge and experience in the cannabis industry. He is the founding board member of Colorado Leads, Marijuana Industry Group (MIG), Cannabis Business Alliance (CBA), and the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA). He has also served on the Colorado Department of Revenue’s Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division’s (MED) Licensing Authority Advisory Committee, and continues to add his voice to the foundation and future direction of the medical and adult-use cannabis industries.

Good Chemistry Colorado launched in 2010, and is now considered to be one of the finest vertically integrated cannabis companies in the state. Since opening Good Chemistry Colorado, Huron has expanded cultivation operations in three large Colorado facilities devoted solely to the production of ~75 strains of marijuana. Today, Good Chemistry employs a staff of more than 150 individuals across three states (Nevada, Colorado, and Massachusetts) in dispensaries, cultivation and corporate operations.

Improving All the Time

There is no rest for the weary, and Matt is constantly looking for ways for improving best practices, policies and procedures, and cultivation.

Huron has developed and implemented best practices in the medical and retail marijuana industry, including a Compassion Care Program that enables patients with limited resources to obtain medical marijuana at little or no cost. Matt also optimized the production of extracts and concentrates through solvent-less processing.

His enforcement of policies and procedures throughout the company has ensured strict compliance with state and local regulations. Huron has collaborated with local leaders and law enforcement to enhance neighborhood safety and security.

Huron has a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley.
