Born and raised in the heart of Humboldt County, Stacy Bryant has a deep passion and appreciation for the cannabis industry. She began her expansive career in the industry as a cultivator at 16, and she has worked in many different roles across the industry during the 215 era, including large scale outdoor cultivation, commercial light deprivation, propagation (a personal favorite), and of course, indoor cultivation. At the end of 2016, she knew it was time to pivot out of cultivating and into an ancillary role that would provide the services needed to contribute to the growth of this new, compliant industry. In 2017, she founded People Need People, Temporary Labor Forces, a California-based boutique staffing company geared towards the cannabis industry. It was a wild success, and People need People expanded across Northern California, maintaining relationships with some of today’s most well-known brands. Now with HGS, her 15+ years of cannabis experience is fused with 50 years of staffing expertise to create the perfect hybrid that assists in guiding our industry into a fully compliant space. Still deeply engrained in the cannabis community and culture, she maintains residency in Humboldt and enjoys exploring the beaches and tide pools of the lost coast with her furry friends (dogs) in tow.
