CEO, Eden Labs
2:30 pm–3:30 pm - Product Development, Processing and Productivity
AC Braddock is the CEO of Eden Labs, recognized as a Top 10 Fastest Growing Women-Led Companies in Seattle, Washington. The growth she enabled for Eden Labs is fueled by an unwavering belief in whole plant medical applications and responsible, modern business practices for future generations. AC has a deep appreciation for business ethics and has played a long term active role in developing a political voice for Eden Labs and the entire cannabis industry. Her spirit and vision has helped Eden create a vibrant corporate culture, which resonates nationally and internationally. In 2009 when the concentrates market was very immature, she saw the public and political damage being caused by explosive solvent systems on the concentrates market and purposely narrowed Eden’s system offerings from many solvents solutions to co2 and ethanol. She knew the company would lose revenue, but the industry would move forward faster. AC’s vision created a platform for medical application of cannabis and legalization through the promotion of safe extraction technology and the pure products needed for expansion of any industry, especially cannabis. On a one-to-one level, her dedication to the success of Eden Labs’ clients nurtures long-term relationships for the prosperity of the industry as a whole, and she encourages small to medium-size operations to become leaders themselves, to facilitate the momentum and social responsibility of all who participate in an emerging industry. She has supported the development and growth of several women’s’ organizations and is on the BOD of NCIA and Washington’s The Cannabis Alliance, Pacific Century Holdings and a member of NCIA’s Federal Policy Council.
