Get to know the team
David Rankin, our Director of Education
David's journey into the cannabis industry began with a personal revelation. As a young man, his first experience with cannabis wasn't marked by the typical teenage high but rather a profound sense of comfort and belonging within his own skin. As an individual on the autism spectrum, David discovered that cannabis had a transformative effect on his well-being. He found himself more capable and at ease, able to navigate life with a newfound confidence and serenity. This life-changing experience ignited in David a passion for the cannabis plant and a mission to learn everything he could about it. His personal use evolved into a quest for knowledge and understanding, with the ultimate goal of educating others about the plant that had so significantly impacted his life.
He spent the early years of his career in the industry before there was a legal market, honing his knowledge and expertise in the shadows. When Colorado took the pioneering step of legalizing medical marijuana, David saw an opportunity to step into the light. He migrated to Denver, immersing himself in the burgeoning legal cannabis industry. He worked across the breadth of the sector, gaining invaluable insights and experience during the critical transition period from a strictly medical to a medical and recreational market.
After several years in Colorado, David was drawn to Barcelona, a city that has become his home for the past seven years. In Barcelona, his deep knowledge and technical prowess led him to roles with major cannabis companies like Dutch Passion and Seedstockers. As a technical consultant and professional educator, David shaped the industry's evolution, designing products for companies like Afterglow Cannabis and sharing his insights on platforms such as "The High Flyer" YouTube and Instagram channels.
Most recently, David has been an integral part of the team at Medcan Medical Clinic, serving as an English-speaking Representative, Lab and Technical consultant. His most impactful role, however, is as the Director of Education for the clinic's educational program, Medcan University. Here, David brings his 15 years of industry experience, personal insights, and passion for education to the forefront, guiding the next generation of cannabis enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, and medical professionals. His journey, from a personal revelation to industry expert, underscores his commitment to revolutionizing perceptions and understanding of cannabis, making him a pivotal figure in the industry's ongoing evolution.
