Cody Stross

CEO
Northern Emeralds

Searcher and new frontier pioneer with an unbridled passion shaped in the legacy of a Formula One race car driver and 1980’s smuggler father.  Raised in Mexico, and legally emancipated at 13, Cody took a bold leap moving to a new country on his own, and came of age in the coastal fog of the hidden hills of Humboldt. These are the building blocks of a cannabis community and industry partner, leader and advocate. Founder and CEO of California’s finest purveyor of craft cannabis, Cody leads a passionate team of 100 Northern Emeralds artisanal cultivators and manicurists, customer service concierge, drivers, club relationship managers and a select syndicate of independent Humboldt craft cultivators. Has cultivated many mutually beneficial relationships with an ever-broadening group of Southern and Northern California’s finest medical dispensaries.
