Makers. Doers. Dreamers.

Rose LifeScience's team

It’s amazing what happens when we get together.

When the cannabis industry’s most passionate makers, doers and dreamers gather every day, some great things happen. We laugh. Yes, we share our lunch, and we create things the world has never seen before. It makes going to work pretty exciting. But it’s also how real progress happens, and we’re darn proud of that.

We are individuals with a bunch of different backgrounds.
We are teammates who respect and believe in each other.
We are communicators who cherish Québec’s culture and values.

We’re in this together.

In the land of legal cannabis, collaboration is kind of like ROSE’s superpower. Sure, we have wide-ranging expertise. And sure, we have hyper-specific knowledge in every area of our business. But, what makes ROSE LifeScience a true leader is that we bring these things together in everything we do. We don’t work as a team, we simply are a team, and we take full advantage of that. It’s why we can find the right solutions for you, whether you are a part of the industry, a community member, or a consumer.

We’re in this together, always.
