Jamie Warm is the CEO and Co-Founder of Henry’s Original. Despite the young age of the legal industry, Jamie has only had one career: growing cannabis. At Henry’s Original, his responsibilities include setting the overall strategic vision of the company, driving retail penetration and nurturing the financial health of the company.
In 2007, Jamie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy from University of California Santa Barbara. While he was there, he started cultivating cannabis in his dorm room. Jamie’s first plant was a male and not knowing what to expect, pollen exploded all over the dorm room. Eventually, he found great mentors, including the owner of Hortifarm and the owners of Greencoast Hydroponics. After college, Jamie used every dollar he had to buy a cannabis farm in Laytonville, California. That farm formed the roots of what today is known as Henry’s Original, one of the largest flower companies in California.
