18-year cannabis veteran Jason Navarrete was born with a green thumb. Experiencing a poor and sometimes homeless upbringing, he started growing vegetables at age 8 to help his mother put food on the table. When he was 12, he began growing and selling cannabis, and learned how he could use his own “Midas touch” to turn his growing efforts into a thriving business.
Later, Navarrete began selling clones of cannabis plants to farmers in Moreno Valley, California. He also became an expert teacher on how to grow hydroponic cannabis indoors, renting huge warehouses with intricate lighting systems. In addition, he was buying foreclosed houses and flipping them for a profit. And then, in early 2016, cannabis was legalized as a recreational drug in California. The floodgates of legitimacy opened for him.
