North Lake Supply, a New Jersey-based adult-use cannabis applicant, announced today the addition of Garrett Cropsey, PMP as a member of their Cultivation & Manufacturing Advisory Board. Cropsey brings 8 years of cannabis industry experience, including time spent in the ground-breaking Colorado cannabis market and consulting for cannabis businesses across the country. He is currently the Operations Manager at PureCannalabs, the consulting arm of PurePressure, a leading manufacturer of solventless cannabis extraction equipment. PurePressure was recently acquired by Agrify.
Alex Kleynshvag, President of North Lake Supply, says, “We intend on being a leading cultivator and manufacturer of consumable cannabis products including inhalable rosins, tinctures, and cartridges. Knowing that the process and output are rather new in the cannabis space, we knew Garrett would be able to connect us with the right people and offer knowledge from his experience in the industry.”
North Lake Supply intends to produce high-quality flower and solventless extracts for the legal adult-use market in New Jersey using the flower that they produce in their existing greenhouse facility in Sussex County, New Jersey to manufacture solventless cannabis products.
Regarding his appointment to North Lake Supply’s Advisory Board, Mr. Cropsey says, “I’m incredibly honored and excited to join this team of dedicated professionals. The opportunity presented by the upcoming adult-use cannabis program in New Jersey is unprecedented, and I’m here to help North Lake Supply become a top player in this market and beyond.”
