Aardvark Cannabis Co was founded in 2015, in Bend, OR, by a couple of Michiganders and a friend from Portland. Beginning as a 13,000 ft greenhouse and processing vertical, it downsized to processing only as flower became cheaper to buy than grow.
Focusing on low-cost, fast-production of very high quality product allowed Aardvark to thrive in a flooded market, and eventually sell in 2020.
Aardvark Cannabis got its name by joking about being first in the phone book. It stuck and Errl became the official mascot. There’s a story about the look in his eye. One day we’ll tell it.
