Chemical engineer, master grower, glass blower, geneticist and Cannabis Supremo. Meet the man behind the White Lion!
Cornel van der Watt
With over 28 years of international, large scale cannabis cultivation experience under his belt, Cornel van der Watt is in a class of his own. His knowledge of all aspects of the cannabis industry and his connections in the global cannabis community are unparalleled. He has also been at the forefront of the cannabis movement in South Africa since inception.
Every path he has walked in his professional and personal life has led him back to the cannabis industry. This path traces back to his qualification in chemical engineering, experience in chemical glassblowing, expertise in cultivation abroad and locally, studies in tissue cultivation, cloning and genetics, his community upliftment work as well as training and consulting.
While Cornel has become a scientist, a geneticist, a businessman and Cannabis Supremo, at the heart of his consultancy lies a deep and spiritual connection with the cannabis plant.
“No matter what your need for weed, even if it’s greed, it all starts from seed.”
