What drew Gabriel to cannabis:

“What inspires me about working in the cannabis industry is being an agent of change. Helping to build Natura is my opportunity to reverse decades of misplaced public policy and help teach the world about the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant. By creating a world-class organization dedicated to integrity, community, and enhancing the quality of people’s lives, I am proud to be part of a team that is producing clean, consistent, and reliable products to consumers in the marketplace. With our holistic business model, we will be able to understand all facets of the supply chain as well as consumer demand. This will allow us to precisely understand the healing benefits of cannabis in order to deliver the consumer an optimized end-user experience.”

The quote that drives him:

“At the heart of it, mastery is practice. Mastery is staying on the path.” – George Leonard
