Cultivating Success

It all began with Founder and Industry Pioneer & Advocate Bob Blink - with one lamp and a couple of plants 25 years ago. Following medical cannabis legalization in 1996, he was one of the first Cultivator/Distributors on the legal market in California. He converted his operation to serving the recreational cannabis market in 2016, forming Lyfted Farms, Inc. TransCanna Holdings acquired Lyfted Farms in 2019, and now the parent and subsidiary companies are working in tandem to build the enterprise into the largest and most operationally diverse and agile business of its kind in California.
