Spread the love


Name: Thomas Vaughn

Location: Pauls Valley, Oklahoma

Title: Grower/Partner

One word to describe your cultivation style: Passion

Indoor, outdoor, greenhouse or a combination: Indoor

Can you share a bit of your background and how you and your company got to the present day?

I got started in Los Angeles, CA medical program in 2003 through 2010.  I moved back to Oklahoma with no expectation of Oklahoma having a medical marijuana program.  In 2018 S.Q. 788 passed and we built a team of like-minded individuals but with wide ranging skill sets and took off.

What tool or software in your cultivation space can you not live without?

Rhythm Environment Controls.

What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your business in the last six months?

Without a doubt, Dramm Touch N Flow 30’’ Wand. We hand-water all of our plants, so the time savings that the Dramm provided us has been one of our best purchases of the entire adventure, regardless of price!

What cultivation technique are you most interested in right now, and what are you actively studying (the most)?

Organic living soil beds. Studying tissue culture a lot.

How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success? Do you have a “favorite failure” of yours?

Overlooking a small contingency detail can create massive failures.  Early on, we had a contactor go out on our HVAC unit and had not installed our controllers yet to shut the lights off at high temperatures. Luckily, we caught it early, but it could have been disaster. It was a detail we will not miss again.

What advice would you give to a smart, driven grower about to enter the legal, regulated industry? What advice should they ignore?

Pay attention to local laws and regulations. Watch mature markets to develop what will work in emerging markets. Prepare for adversity. Prepare for challenges and meet them with the same enthusiasm as you do the wins. Ignore the idea that there is only one way to do it. This is a relatively new industry and the ones that continue to innovate will be at the forefront.

How do you deal with burnout?

When you are passionate about your job, burnout isn’t as prevalent. We have so many projects we are currently working on that I couldn’t even think about burnout. We are having a blast continuing to innovate and push the Oklahoma market in the right direction. In cannabis, every day is something different, so complacency isn’t an option under our roof. Having a reliable, focus driven team helps. High-quality organic Resonant Cultivation cannabis helps as well! 

How do you motivate your employees/team?

We have a “No Bad Vibes” policy and our culture starts at the top. We communicate to our team the opportunity within the growing cannabis industry. For our employees who want to focus and learn, we communicate the chance to continue to grow in our company. We invest in our employees and their professional growth. It has been a joy to see them develop talents and skills that are valuable to the team. We communicate to the team the opportunity that we have to make an impact in the quality of life for our fellow Oklahomans with cannabis and that is enough motivation in itself.

What keeps you awake at night?

Timing, planning and scheduling of a plant that has its own schedule can keep me up at night.

What helps you sleep at night?

We installed a full system generator. In Oklahoma weather, you’d better be prepared!

Pétition ASBL Cannabis Belgique

Pourquoi une pétition ?

Nous sommes des personnes qui en avons assez de devoir aller dans la rue et avoir affaire à des réseaux criminels sans savoir où cela va nous conduire par après.

Nous sommes des personnes ayant des maladies, qui pour certaines sont rares, et utilisant pour médication le cannabis sous diverses formes (CBD,THC,THCv,CBDa,,,) sous l'accord de notre médecin.

Nous sommes des personnes responsables et honnêtes qui avons une vie épanouie et sans problèmes de vie ou sociaux.

Nous avons également une passion pour la plante de cannabis en elle-même et la cultiver est notre bonheur. De plus, nous pouvons nous soigner avec notre médication sans avoir peur des produits ou autres additifs contenus dans une plante que l'on peut trouver autre part.

Nous souhaitons pouvoir avoir notre médicament dans les normes de la santé publique, car un cannabis sain aide à réduire les frais de santé parfois conséquents pour la collectivité et le malade lui-même.

Nous sommes également des personnes responsables avec un rôle dans la société qui en avons assez d’être considérés comme des « hippies ou autres drogués », nous avons juste choisi notre médication et celle-ci a apporté les preuves de son efficacité dans le monde.

Nous connaissons déjà les produits dérivés comme le CBD et le THC que nous maîtrisons pour nous aider dans notre maladie « Je précise que nous ne sommes pas médecin et que nous nous basons sur 20 ans d’expérience médicale du cannabis des membres de notre ASBL et l'avis du médecin de famille ».

Nous désirons simplement ne plus nous cacher, et pouvoir aider les autres personnes le souhaitant.

Nous somme soucieux des ados et de la prévention à leur égard. Effectivement, nous sommes les acteurs parfaits pour répondre aux questions qu’ils se posent vu notre expérience cannabique et, de plus, nous pourrons leur expliquer les risques qu’ils encourent en achetant du cannabis dans la rue.
