Mike Chyczij, Master Grower and Head Breeder, Allegro CannabisMike_Headshot2

Mike has been cultivating Cannabis for over 20 years. His methodologies have take numerous twists and turns, as new technologies - in conjunction with more accepting social attitudes toward the practice - have emerged over the course of time. Mike's primary source of inspiration is rooted in the diverse range of expressions in Cannabis varieties currently extant, their lineages, and the potential of this plant to express itself in unimagined ways, moving forward. In addition to a profound respect for the plant, Mike's time at the University of Toronto (Dept of Anthropology) has calcified his appreciation for the ethnological and historical underpinnings of Cannabis cultivation and culture globally.

Mike's first foray into Cannabis Education was in 2016 when he designed and delivered a Cannabis Cultivation Workshop through National Access Cannabis in Toronto. Since then, he has reached over 1 million people across 120 countries with his YouTube Channel 'Green Grow Spaces', which is decidedly 'edutainment' based in nature, and focuses on organic Cannabis Cultivation, with all of its subtle and nerdier nuances. He has appeared on numerous Cannabis related livestreams and podcasts, and has been a regular panelist on 'The Joint', and 'Embracing Organics', as well as co-hosted the 'How Grows it?' Show.

Currently, Mike is the Master Grower and Head Breeder of Allegro Cannabis, a Nursery and Micro-Production applicant with Health Canada under Bill C-45. In addition, Mike is the CEO of Green Grow Consulting, where he provides services related to the Education, Genetic Acquisition, Cultivation Methodology, and Retailing of Cannabis as a plant, and product. Having trained over 250 Retail Associates and Management teams in Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and B.C. for public and privately held entities, his experience in Legal Cannabis Retail space includes corporate product knowledge training, menu curation, LP interaction, federal/provincial regulation compliance, and community engagement. He is also the co-founder of Origins Genetics, a group who engage in Genetic Research & Development programs for Domestic and International Licensed Producers, Nurseries and Processors.

Amber is an experienced marketing and media professional, considered a veteran in the Alberta cannabis industry. She got her start in cannabis in 2013, when she helped launch the first medical cannabis recreational brand in Alberta, 420 Clinic.

Amber’s career started in communications and media and eventually folded over into advertising and marketing which led to her starting a small marketing firm in 2011. Having worked with various industries and in numerous aspects of marketing, her past experience has served her well as she moved into a brand new and heavily regulated industry with cannabis.

In early 2018, she was part of the branding and launch of the Alberta cannabis recreational retail brand, FOUR20, which has been touted as being a trailblazer for being one of only two stores that would be open on day one of legalization in Calgary, Alberta. The early days of legalization earned them international media exposure and strong brand power.

In Amber’s current role as Chief Marketing Officer at FOUR20, she is involved in many aspects of managing the business, but still drives the marketing and branding efforts of the company and their 13 operating locations.

Katie took a year away from cannabis to complete her BSc in Environmental Science at Royal Roads University and returned shortly after, finding herself almost immediately back in the post-legalization saddle. Currently, she is the QAP at 314 Pure Cannabis and has assisted in every corner of this facility, ensuring that the company produces amazing, GPP compliant flower; and, she is helping to develop new departments and new products for their lineup.
