The Entourage Effect is a phenomenon that establishes how and why the cannabis plant can provide such an incredible array of benefits. Cannabis plants consist of a wide variety of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids and sugars that collectively create a synergistic effect. It is the combination of these components in varying levels that provide overwhelming medical gains.

It is this synergy that we believe doesn’t stop at cannabis, but spans across many other modalities. In the same way, we recruit and deploy targeted specialists to provided unparalleled services to our cannabis clients.

The Entourage Effect was founded by Jason Stark in 2015. Jason is a graduate of the University of Florida with a master’s in Business Management. After having worked in Human Resource Management, large-scale Textile Manufacturing and textile consulting, he decided to embark into the world of cannabis.

Arriving in Colorado in 2014, the industry was in process of implementing its new Recreational Program. Jason took a grass roots approach to learning about this industry. Through partner companies, he afforded himself an internship which allowed for in depth exposure to the facets of each department. Over the course of a year, Jason had a direct role in Cultivation Operations, Retail Operations and Extraction Operations. During this time he had a hand in every function of each of these areas. Through these experiences, Jason further refined his understanding of manufacturing operations, legal restrictions, compliance requirements, sourcing struggles and quality control methodology.

Furthering his reach, Jason spent time conducting seminars throughout the country to better educate the public on products, applications and general information regarding the cannabis industry. At this time, Jason realized that there was an outstanding lack of knowledge and experience leading operations throughout the cannabis space.

Since then, Jason has helped launched and run a number of companies in the cannabis industry, helping them to realize significant successes in Brand Development, Product Launches, Process Improvements / Refinement, Targeted Cultivation Operations and Licensing / Expansion Efforts both nationally and internationally. Through these efforts, he has afforded himself a network of professionals that have assisted in all of these function successfully.

Today, Jason runs The Entourage Effect consulting practice to best offer the cannabis industry premium services to provide solutions to its clients. It is with this knowledge and network of qualified professionals that The Entourage Effect is best suited to address your short and long-term needs.
