Laurie Weitzel

Vice-President
Earth's Own Naturals

Laurie Weitzel was born in Vancouver and raised on the prairies, and is now residing in the picturesque city of Kimberley, BC.

Laurie had a successful sales career in the technology and services industry for 20 years in both Winnipeg and Calgary, and owned a property/strata management company in Kimberley. Her cannabis journey started when her late husband, Chris, was diagnosed with stage 3 esophageal cancer in January 2014. In the fall of 2015, they sought and were granted a business license to open a dispensary. Chris passed away November 29, 2015. Laurie opened Earth’s Own Naturals Ltd. with her business partner in January 2017.

As a stakeholder in the cannabis industry, Laurie believes it is imperative that we work together towards enhancing the new legislation to better service our communities.
