Flow Cannabis Co.

San Francisco Bay Area

Michael Steinmetz is the CEO, co-founder, and Chief Servant Officer of Flow Cannabis Co., which flagship brand is Flow Kana, California’s best seller of sun-grown cannabis. Sister brands include Roots, an accessibly priced sun grown imprint, and Caldera, a premium vape and concentrates vertical launched in October 2020. Steinmetz aims to transform cannabis into the world’s first fully sustainable agricultural product, thus ushering in a new era of farming, rooted in environmental stewardship, transparency and heritage — what he calls “The California Way.” Originally from Caracas, Venezuela, Steinmetz and his wife, filmmaker and environmental activist Flavia Cassani, founded Flow Cannabis Co. after touring Northern California’s famed Emerald Triangle in 2015. Drawing on his previous experience in national food distribution systems as an entrepreneur in Venezuela, with his analysis skills honed at NASA and Merrill Lynch, Steinmetz has helped farmers reach scale while preserving their culture and bringing conscious consumers an unparalleled, premium sun-grown product. Steinmetz, 37, oversees operations at the Flow Cannabis Institute in the Emerald Triangle’s Redwood Valley.
