Cannabis Business Interviews: Higher Yields Cannabis Consulting With Cory Waggoner

Built on his four pillars of healthy cannabis businesses – Strong Startup, System Design & Implementation, Brand Development & Deployment, Growth & Scaling –Cor Waggoner designed Higher Yields Consulting to solve the most complex and problematic issues in the cannabis industry.

In 2008, Cory Waggoner entered the cannabis industry as an operator helping develop commercial cultivation sites in Northern California. Seeing the vast potential and sophisticated market emerging in Colorado, Waggoner moved to California to bring his Colorado experience to a new market, and there he partnered with several retail facilities, cultivators, and manufacturing labs in 2010.

Recognizing the need for experience-based regulations and professional services to support cannabis operations, Waggoner worked with distressed retail stores and cultivation sites from 2013 to 2015 to implement sustainable processes and quality-predictable procedures. Throughout his time rescuing cannabis businesses under strain, Waggoner developed dynamic SOPs and strategies that dramatically increased profit margins in an ever-changing industry.

His experience fixing and – when owners desired to – flipping cannabis businesses inspired Waggoner to make his services available to cannabis businesses around the country by founding Higher Yields Cannabis Consulting.
