Entrepreneur of the Week: Cody Ziering of PAQ Ltd

As featured on Direct Cannabis Network:


Cody Ziering is a co-founder and one of the managing partners of PAQ Ltd along with his partner Brett Gelfand. Previously, Brett and Cody together, helped build a vertically integrated Colorado cannabis firm from the ground up, including an 45k sq. ft. indoor cultivation, edible kitchen, extract lab, and dispensary. During their tenure in Colorado, both executives recognized the pre-roll multi-pack as the most undervalued product type in the industry. With a desire to change the perception of their favorite product type, pre-rolls, Brett and Cody resigned from their kush-y jobs in order to develop the world’s first air-tight child-resistant container for rolled herb, the JPAQ. The founders, along with their venture, PAQ Ltd, continues to innovate new packaging and accessories for rolled material and pre-roll lovers world-wide.
