The (legal) cannabis industry is still in its relative infancy. As such, true “veterans” of the space are rare. Rob Hunt is one of the few.
In his more than a decade in the space, Hunt, an attorney licensed to practice in Colorado, has worked in nearly every aspect of the marijuana industry. From owning and operating a chain of specifically dedicated hydroponics shops to founding Tuatara Capital, the world’s largest cannabis-dedicated private equity firm, to his current role as operator of Consult Canna in Boulder, CO, a boutique consultancy specializing in cannabis-based businesses and investors, he has pretty much seen it all.
Wealthmanagement.com recently caught up with Hunt to discuss his personal story, the cannabis industry as a whole, where it’s going and some of the options available to advisors looking to dip their toes into the space.
