Kim Stuck started her career with the City of Denver becoming the first cannabis regulator in the space back before anyone really knew how to regulate this new industry. After working alongside manufacturers, cultivators, retailers and legislators for many years she decided to branch off onto her own creating Allay Consulting. As a consultant Kim is able to work with clients to find solutions to their compliance problems while being able to offer insight from her past experience working as a regulator.
Kim recently moved to Oregon expanding Allay Consulting’s cannabis consulting services and expanding the business into psilocybin compliance. While regulations are still being written in Oregon, Kim hopes to be part of that process being able to offer the same skills sets she’s provided to the cannabis industry now in the psilocybin space. Learn more about decriminalization of psilocybin that took place in Oregon in Nov 2020 and Kim’s predictions for what we can expect for the psilocybin industry in years to come.
