Brady Cobb / Founder & CEO of One Plant Florida

Brady Cobb is the CEO of Bluma Wellness Inc. (CSE: BWEL.U) and One Plant Florida. Bluma Wellness owns and operates a vertically-integrated, licensed medical cannabis company in the state of Florida doing business as “One Plant Florida.” One Plant Florida cultivates, processes, dispenses and retails medical cannabis to qualified patients in the state of Florida through multiple retail dispensaries and an innovative next-day door-to-door e-commerce home delivery service.

A medical marijuana pioneerwho uses his legal background to address marijuana policy reform as both an attorney and lobbyist, Brady cultivated his passion for the industry to found One Plant (formerly 3 Boys Farm, LLC) in October of 2018.In building One Plant, Brady and his team of authentic cannabis enthusiasts and experienced industry insiders took a much different, and harder, path than its competitors, namely instead of focusing on opening up retail stores, they focused on building out and scaling up their cultivation facilities. They recognized that they were only as good as the cannabis flower they could grow, and truly live and die by a line from their mission statement; One Plant’s cannabis is grown, not made.

Prior to founding One Plant, Cobb has led market-setting strategic investments in the cannabis space as the CEO of publicly traded Sol Global Investments Corp., including investments into Verano Holdings, 3 Boys Farms, DNA Genetics, and a full U.S. and European hemp/CBD portfolio. He is a regular guest on Fox Business, Cheddar, and Yahoo Finance.

Cobb’s interest in medical marijuana began with his father, CW “Bill” Cobb, who in the late 1970s and early 1980s, helped smuggle $300 million worth of marijuana into the U.S., and was sentenced to twenty(20) years behind bars. Years later, cannabis was something that provided mental and physical release toward the end of his battle with cancer. The younger Cobb has since taken a different path in promoting its benefits ― choosing to engine the product in a legal market.

 

Cobb earned his law degree from Barry University in Orlando, and later became a director at the nationally recognized Fort Lauderdale law firm Tripp Scott. There, he learned from former Florida Senate President James Scott and others about working through regulatory issues regarding marijuana. In 2014, Cobb went on to found his law practice Cobb Eddy, where he was to be deeply embedded in policy-making both at the legislative and executive level.

In 2015, 2016 and 2017 he was ranked as a Rising Star of the Legal Community by Super Lawyers of Florida. Cobb focused his on governmental relations and regulatory matters, complex commercial litigation, and mergers and acquisitions.

 

One of Cobb’s main projects was working with Sen. Mitch McConnell’s office to educate members of Congress on how hemp differs from marijuana, in an effort to help pass the Farm Bill (which was passed in 2018) to legalize industrial hemp. Cobb is also responsible for working with state legislators to designatemedical marijuana dispensaries as essential businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2016, Cobb flew to Canada to visit his client Aphria ― one of the largest cannabis companies in the world ― and along with Aphria’s founders and investors, he spearheaded the acquisition of the first MMTC license to change hands in Florida. The resulting company, Liberty Health Sciences Inc., has been a leader in Florida and Cobb served as the company’s chief legal officer for its first year of business.

One Plant currently has locations in Boynton Beach, Jacksonville Beach, St. Petersburg and Port St. Lucie, Florida. The company is expanding to open several more locations throughout the state.

Cobb holds a bachelor’s in political science, with a minor in American History, from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. He earned his J.D. from Barry University, Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law, in Orlando, Florida.

As a native South Floridian, Cobb is an avid outdoorsman. In his spare time, he can be found at the beach or on the water where he enjoys surfing, fishing and boating. He also enjoys spending quality time with his family and being on the golf course. He and wife Lauren currently reside in Fort Lauderdale with their son, Carter and daughter, Campbell.  He and Lauren are active in charitable events and political fundraising on the local, state and federal level.
