About – PotanyPros

Our Story

A former principal, a glazier, and business consultant walk into a cannabis shop... (not another dad joke!). Ok, we didn't walk into a shop. But, the PotanyPros Bros - Ariel, Jon, and Luke - did connect through of our passion to create educated cannabis growers, consumers, advocates, and researchers. Our combined skills and common vision enabled us to create PotanyPros: the ultimate resource for recreational and medicinal cannabis growers. We provide expert consulting, vetted vendors and a knowledge base of the latest cannabis research, growing techniques, and uses. PotanyPros is a privately owned company based in Massachusetts. Our core values are:

- Education is the best way to change the stigma surrounding cannabis.
- Individualized and personalized attention for each grower is essential for the user’s experience with cannabis.
- Growing cannabis should be a fun experience.
- Anyone can learn to grow their own.
- Giving back to the Veteran community who brought cannabis to the light.
