Cultivation Managers: Dexter Deddo, Penn Mattison
From an early age I developed a profound love and admiration for cannabis. That love has blossomed into a career, one that I am extremely grateful for everyday. My background is in horticulture, specifically arboriculture. With my love of cannabis and my horticulture experience, cannabis horticulture is a perfect fit. Cultivation isn’t a competition and as growers we should embrace each other with open arms. In an industry where ego rules, it is important to stay the course and never stop learning and sharing knowledge.
Horticulture has been a part of my life for decades. I have been blessed with three beautiful children. Our youngest daughter Millie was born with a rare epilepsy disorder. Through years of hospital stays and desperation we stumbled upon the CNN documentary “Weeds” with Dr. Sanjay Gupta; it changed our lives. Through extensive research we found that cannabis was our best option. We relocated our family from the deep south to Colorado. I found a career in cannabis which was a natural fit. I feel blessed to be a part of the cannabis community and to work each day with a plant that is so fascinating, captivating and versatile. Cannabis has changed our lives and the lives of so many others around us.
Why Our Cannabis?
We take great pride in the quality of our products. From genetics and propagation through our harvest and curing processes we give the utmost attention to detail. Our passion for cannabis supersedes the monetary value of the plant. We strive to continually build our skill sets and knowledge base as cultivators to provide the consumer with the highest quality of product possible.
Why Willies Reserve?
Penn and Dex have a long standing love affair with outlaw country. A lot of what Willies music represent directly correlate with growing cannabis. Willie Nelson has been a giant for cannabis long before it’srecent re-legalization. He has helped propel the movement to where we see it now. Teaming up with Willies Reserve is a dream come true for us as independent farmers.
