Founder / Chairman / Grower
My name is Nik Alexander and I am the founder of Third day co-op. Cannabis is something that I have used my entire adult and adolescent life and it has caused me much joy and much misery. The misery stems entirely from the illegality of cannabis in my home State of Indiana, and continues to be illegal federally as a schedule one substance with no proven medical value and a high potential for abuse. Anyone that has ever used the herb knows what a fallacy this is. Cannabis’ illegality was serendipitous for me; I am 38 years old and have been in the Cannabis industry for 23 years. Cannabis’ illegality ironically has allowed me to enter the industry at an age that would bar entry to so many legitimate industries, allowing me to gain extensive experience at a very young age. With a background in volunteer work, sales, marketing, retail, design, advertising and cannabis cultivation I was passionate to move to Denver four years ago and pursue a philanthropic endeavor with Third day co-op. In running a non-profit co-op we are hoping to not only get medicine to patients who desperately need it, but we are also doing our part to help reverse the stigma that has indoctrinated so many people for so long about Cannabis.
