The MSUCIA Canna-Business Lecture Series hosts both emerging and accomplished cannabis industry leaders for panel-led Q&A sessions.

This fall, participants will be able to learn from twelve renowned entrepreneurs and experts who have cumulatively raised $560M in venture capital and oversee $300M in capital under management.

The MSUCIA Canna-Business Lecture Series is proudly hosted by the Michigan State University Cannabis Industry Association and co-hosted by Green Wolverine, Cannaclub University, USFCA-CIA, Cornell Cannabusiness, and SSDP.


A lifelong entrepreneur, Adrian Sedlin builds brands and cash flow businesses. Over his 25-year career, Mr. Sedlin has raised over $175MM in early stage capital, created 5 successful exits, and thrived in diverse industries including B2B ecommerce, B2G SaaS, direct response, and consumer packaged goods.

In 2015, Mr. Sedlin left early retirement to launch CANNDESCENT, a leading California cannabis brand. In 2017, CANNDESCENT became the #1-selling brand of cannabis flower in California and the company was the first cultivator in the world to abandon strain names and move to a consumer-friendly, effects-based architecture—Calm, Cruise, Create, Connect, and Charge. 

Educationally, Mr. Sedlin earned his BA magna cum laude from Georgetown University in 1992 with a double major in Economics and English. Thereafter, Mr. Sedlin earned his MBA from the Harvard Business School in 1998. More than anything else, Mr. Sedlin relishes spending time with his wife, Kristin, and his three teenage children, Asher, Miles and Sontene.
