Regulatory + Security Expert
David Hyde is a global cannabis industry consultant with seven years hands-on experience providing expert guidance to cannabis companies and government bodies on matters relating to business/licensing strategy, regulatory/policy approaches, cannabis facility design/operations, corporate due diligence and risk governance. David’s cannabis sector work spans sixteen countries and includes engagements with multi-national cannabis companies, foreign governments, cannabis start-ups, R&D/testing companies, local/regional governments and investors.
David’s experience in the cannabis sector is both unique and unparalleled. Since early 2013, he has consulted with over 550 legal cannabis businesses including large-scale and small-batch cultivators, outdoor farms and cannabis nurseries, processors and extractors, packagers and distributors, research and testing labs, and cannabis retail outlets. On the public sector side, David has worked with local and regional governments, as well as federal licensing bodies, on regulatory policy, licensing and compliance strategy, enforcement tools, inspector training and guidance documents for industry.
As more countries have followed the early-movers in setting up legal cannabis regimes, David’s input has increasingly been in demand within foreign jurisdictions, bringing the many lessons learned from Canada and the U.S into other countries in Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, Oceania and Asia.
