DENVER (October 23, 2017) – L’Eagle Services, a retail cannabis dispensary specializing in clean cannabis, today announced the appointment of Phillip Jacobson to Director of Cultivation. In this role, Jacobson is responsible for running L’Eagle’s cultivation facility with the highest standards in sustainability, using OMRI-rated products and producing the finest clean cannabis on the market.
“Over the last twenty-four months we have scaled our grow to meet the demands of our business,” said John Andrle, co-owner, L’Eagle Services. “Phillip joins L’Eagle at a time of substantial growth and brings with him an unparalleled breadth of horticultural experience and knowledge. He will lead the team with environmental expertise and move L’Eagle’s mission to meeting rigorous sustainability standards forward while cultivating high quality clean cannabis,” Andrle added.
Jacobson has been cultivating cannabis for almost two decades. Prior to joining L’Eagle, Jacobson owned and operated PGJ Enterprises, an independent consulting business. Since 2004, Jacobson has built and managed numerous commercial cultivation facilities, directing and managing grow operations including a 296-light recreational OPC grow, an 86-light medical OPC grow, and working with Dominion Extracts to increase the size for their grow three-fold. Prior to starting his own business, Jacobson worked with Natural Resource Logic on wind farm development. Jacobson earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental, Population and Organismic Biology and Environmental Studies, as well as a Master of Science degree in Geological Science from University of Colorado Boulder. Throughout his studies Jacobson was chosen to perform research under a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through the Sustainability of semi-Arid Hydrology and Riparian Areas (SAHRA). He was also the recipient of a Shell Research Grant.
As Director of Cultivation, Jacobson will train and supervise department staff and oversee the plant health program. He will work closely with the production team to optimize plant production while implementing sustainable methods and technologies for reducing environmental impact while ensuring the quality and health of the plants.
L’Eagle subscribes to a rigorous integrated pest management system rooted in non-synthetic pesticides and clean cultural practices. L’Eagle creates low stress environments, sterilizes all areas between batches, and never treats plants after the onset of buds. L’Eagle believes that healthy plants are still the best defense against pests and disease and treatments include Organic OMRI certified oils, bio fungicides/insecticides, bactericides and beneficial insects. L’Eagle is highly respected for its flower which is one hundred percent clean, free of synthetic pesticides and cured for a minimum of three months.
In addition to ongoing cultivation management, Jacobson’s plans include the verification of a Clean Green Certification for L’Eagle’s grow, as well as the transition from mineral-based nutrients to a fully organic nutrient regimen, further validating L’Eagle’s mission to provide safe, clean, healthy cannabis for its customers while doing good for the environment.
