About

From grassroots beginnings, the Green Room has secured its position as a leader of both supply and information within the growing medical marijuana sector. Green Room provides wide, well-regulated access to safe, high-quality marijuana as a valid and effective treatment for patients with various chronic medical conditions.

Serving to help establish and support a carefully structured and managed medical marijuana system within Canada, each alternative health practitioner within the Green Room society of professionals is tasked with the singular goal to fill the educational gap between need and product; matching specific ailment to optimal product, dosage and usage within strict ethical and quality control guidelines from the safe and comfortable environment of a Green Room medical marijuana dispensary.

This specialized care and support is given with reliable and friendly expert advice and a focused determination to strengthen community through the therapeutic treatment of all Canadians desperately seeking relief from pain and suffering to improve both quality of life and the ability to remain a productive member of society.

Helping Canadians find the optimal medicinal product for their specific medical need with expert understanding and care. It’s well within reach in the Green Room.

Cazador Holland

Cazador was a lifelong friend of Phillip’s and the two grew up side-by-side in Powell River, B.C and eventually moved to Vancouver.

Cazador’s love of the culinary arts and entrepreneurial spirit led him to open the very successful La Casita restaurant in Gastown, Vancouver, as well as many other successful restaurants in the area.

As the co-founder of Green Room, his business skills and tact were the vehicles that made it possible to so precisely execute the vision of Green Room. Cazador’s ambition brought the company from a local Vancouver dispensary to a nationwide chain.

While he continues to be a restaurateur, Cazador’s passion for the cannabis industry in all forms is his driving factor now.

Frederick Pels

Frederick was introduced to Green Room by Phillip and Cazador because of his entrepreneurial skills, drive, and contacts in the business community, both in Alberta and nationwide. His background is in finance and he is also a serial entrepreneur.

Frederick’s respect for the cannabis industry stems from both an entrepreneurial standpoint and a personal one. The former comes from seeing a product that people have wanted and yet have had zero access to, and to which other providers, including the government, have had poor supply.  This was a product that not only people wanted, but many needed, including Fredrick’s father.

His father had been suffering from aches and pains for the majority of his adult life, but developed sciatica and was crippled by the pain. He was prescribed Percocet, among other opioid painkillers, yet still suffered vastly. Since starting cannabis therapy, he is now completely off all other pain medications. His pain became manageable and his attitude and overall outlook on life is incredible.  It is notable that he had never smoked cannabis before in his entire life, having his first experience at age 70!

After seeing the change in his father, Frederick’s respect for the cannabis industry intensified, and his drive to make it successful increased one hundred-fold.
