I had the rare chance to interview Josh Genderson, CEO of Holistic Industries. Since starting the company in 2011, Josh has grown Holistic into a national medical and consumer goods company, a cultivation and extraction network, and a retail dispensary chain. Josh launched Holistic based on the expertise he gained serving as President of Schneider’s of Capitol Hill, the Gendersons’ fourth-generation, family-owned liquor store, that is a staple in Washington, D.C. Today, Holistic Industries is one of the largest private multi-state operators (MSO) in cannabis and runs fully vertical operations (from seed to sale) in California, Maryland, D.C., Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Michigan, and soon Missouri.
