About the speakers:

Russell Akiyama - Management at Absolute Herbal Pain Solutions

A native to the South Bay area of Los Angeles, Russell was born into a family deeply rooted in plants. His parents and grandparents spent countless days showing him the delicate balance plants require to flourish. Growing up in a multi-acre plant nursery taught him the many facets to the dynamic art and science of cultivation and horticulture. After graduating from college in New York and working as a contractor for the military in Virginia, Russell moved back home in 2015 to take over the family business. Since his youth he has had the great pleasure to be involved in several projects which have furthered the practice and methodology involved in cultivating cannabis. Russell loves plants and the ability they have to bring immense bounty to those who have the the willingness to sow.
