Meet another native Coloradan working for Extract Labs, Justin Smith. He is originally from Longmont Colorado and graduated from Longmont High School. Following graduation, he tried his hand at a variety of vocations before finding steady work with both plumbing and restoration.
Justin has long-been a cannabis advocate. Although the marijuana side of things had been his typical calling, he became fascinated with the hemp movement and the thought of being able to help people feel well without the worry of psychoactive effects. He watched as the hemp industry quickly advanced and progressed, deciding he needed to hop on board to make a living by helping the world get introduced to the power of hemp.
Justin found himself wondering if there was something better out there, something that would give him the opportunity to grow while helping people in the process. Luckily, he had a friend in the hemp industry who was busy making her career at Extract Labs.
Following his interview, Justin was hired and quickly found himself at home in Extract Labs’ busy shipping department. Although he started off as an assistant, he quickly made his way to lead on shipping retail orders, helping to keep up with the chaos as our shipping volume has nearly tripled in the past year.
Justin is the proud dad of 2 year old Marley and his two pit bulls, 8 year old Brewsky (brindle) and 4 year old Bella (grey).
