Andy Rodosevich / CEO and Co-Founder / Hemp Depot. A native of Colorado Springs, Hemp Depot CEO and co-founder Andy Rodosevich had two passions as a boy: cars and creating ways to make money. Today, with his high school friend Luke Pickering, he runs one of the nation’s largest hemp farms specializing in seed genetics, planting, harvesting, wholesaling and retailing cannabis for CBD with emphasis on safety and purity.
Hemp Depot was one of the first 13 producers to be certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority, an organization formed in 2018 to self-regulate the industry with standards to ensure the quality and safety of CBD products. Looking out over the hundreds of acres of Hemp Depot’s cannabis farm, it’s hard to imagine Andy experiences an allergic reaction to marijuana-producing cannabis, which looks similar but is genetically different to CBD producing hemp. It’s this sensitivity that makes him place such a strong emphasis on frequent testing and quality control.
Andy worked his way through college as district manager for a cell phone company, and upon graduating helped turn around a struggling car dealership as the company’s general manager. Realizing the potential of Colorado’s then-fledgling marijuana industry, he maxed-out one of his credit cards to establish one of Denver’s first medical cannabis dispensaries, Elevated Medical, in 2009. Despite making numerous mistakes, including falling victim to an armed robbery and Colorado’s changing zone regulations, the dispensary was a financial success and established him as a veteran in the cannabis industry.
He went on to create an online cannabis social network called WeedLife in 2014 providing educational information and connecting consumers, businesses, marketers, and writers who cover the industry. Overnight, it grew to tens of thousands of users and has continued to grow since then. A sought-after source on cannabis and CBD, Andy has been interviewed by national media such as CNBC and invited to speak at industry conferences. He is a member of the Hemp Industries Association and the National Hemp Association.
Luke Pickering / Co-Founder / Hemp Depot. Fascinated with cannabis since high school, Luke Pickering has always had a green thumb and knack for getting the most out of plants no matter how tight the space. It’s a talent he honed when he and his high school friend Andy Rodosevich joined forces to co-found Hemp Depot and quickly took it from six acres to over 1,300 acres to become one of the nation’s largest producers of hemp CBD from seed to harvest, wholesale and retail.
Hemp Depot now is one of the first 13 producers to have met the most stringent quality and safety standards in hemp farming and processing and become certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority. Luke is renowned for his expertise in seed genetics and capability to perfect the process of growing the most potent and pure hemp CBD in the world, maximizing acreage and proven with third-party testing. His interest in seed genetics was sparked by a void in the seed market and a desire to grow a unique strain. He is driven to produce seeds with the highest quality structure, cannabinoid content and compliance. He works to create seeds that produce the highest yield per acre and highest possible amount of CBD per plant. Luke’s expertise has led Hemp Depot to produce seeds with the highest CBD genetic and become the industry leader with the highest seed inventory in the U.S. A member of the Hemp Industries Association and the National Hemp Association, Luke is a sought-after news media source on seed genetics, CBD purity, quality and safety. www.hempdepotco.com
