El Mehdi Loraoui
THE SHEIKH (ACCOUNT MANAGER)
I was born in the beach city of El Jadida, Morocco. Yes, Morocco — the home of legendary Moroccan hashish. I immigrated to the United States and was raised in Denver since the age of seven. I’d say I’m a true Coloradan at heart.
I started in Sales at a young age and went on to study Hospitality, sparked by my love for travel. Shortly after school, I started a party bus and tour company. Tired of the hustle and bustle of the transportation industry, I took some time off to travel. I visited many different cities across the country then went overseas, only to realize my heart was in Denver.
After returning to the Mile High City in early 2012, I pursued a career in the medical marijuana industry. I climbed the ranks from trimmer to an assistant gardener, then to running my own grow. Having been a medical marijuana patient since 2009, I could not ask for a more rewarding career than being able to share this amazing plant with the world.
Favorite thing to buy at the dispensary:
I would have to go with high-grade flower. But, I do love all the awesome innovative products such as inhalers, disposable vapes, tinctures, and lotions.
Advice for visitors to Denver:
Go Visit Buffalo Bill’s Grave (Lookout Mountain) on a clear day. It has what is, to me, the most beautiful view of the city and its amazing skyline. You can see Golden, the Coors brewery from the top of a mountain, and all the way to the airport.
