Allan Gandelman is the co-founder and President at Head & Heal, New York Hemp Oil and Main Street Farms. He has been an organic vegetable farmer for ten years. In 2017, Allan began experiencing symptoms of Lyme’s Disease. When traditional methods of care did not work for him, he tried CBD – and finally found the relief he was looking for.
Because of this experience he decided to add hemp to their crop rotation in 2018. Allan is the founder and President of the Cannabis Association of New York (CANY)–an organization of cannabis producers, processors and industry partners committed to an economically viable, consumer-conscious cannabis industry. CANY worked closely with NYS Congress for the last three years to help pass the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act – legalizing cannabis in New York state – and is currently helping to guide regulations.
