David Marcus is an industry expert in all things cannabis, with over 25 years of experience and successfully lobbying the Federal Government to include hemp-based CBD in their cannabis regulations. David Marcus is the founder and president of two Canadian cannabis companies: Natural Emphasis and ABIDE. Natural Emphasis was founded in 1995 with a focus on the newly re-emerging hemp industry. ABIDE was incorporated in 2013 to take advantage of Canada’s new cannabis laws. ABIDE is a Health Canada licensed cannabis cultivator and processor focused on outdoor, sun-grown cannabis in Ontario.
