Mr. Jordan is the founder of Native Roots—recognized as the leading cannabis dispensary brand, with state-of-the art commercial cultivation and processing facilities. Mr. Jordan dedicated his career to the cannabis space, adopting a patient-first mentality that he was able to scale, ultimately becoming one of the largest and most successful dispensary chains in the world.
Growgenics CEO, Mr. Rick Genga shared that "Mr. Jordan's decision to join Growgenics is further confirmation that our advanced technology is emerging as the de facto indoor horticultural lighting industry leader. We are thrilled to have him on board."
Mr. Jordan started the now vertically-integrated cannabis company with 20 employees, building the company one division at a time to its current size of over 600 employees with 16 medical-cannabis locations, 18 adult-use locations, and two dual cultivation/processing facilities, across the U.S. and Canada.

Growgenics highly efficient patent pending LED shape lighting technology integrates ground-breaking, tunable LED color spectrum technology. This feature enables users the ability to set photosynthetic color ratios resulting in optimized plant growth and maximized vegetative output. Growgenics technology is ideally designed and suited for both cannabis cultivation as well as indoor vertical food farming. Recent third-party test lab validation confirmed that cannabis grown with Growgenics’ lighting tech can manipulate and significantly increase THC content, in some cases doubling the percentage. In addition, their highly efficient lighting system reduces both power and HVAC loads by 45% to 55%.
