135: Taylor Giovannini, Oceanic Releaf

Home/Gale Force Wins, Most Loved/135: Taylor Giovannini, Oceanic Releaf

Taylor Giovannini is founder and president of Oceanic Releaf  headquartered on the  Burin Peninsula. With 7 retail locations across the province, Oceanic produces and retails premium cannabis products.
Her journey with cannabis started when she began making baked goods to help a relative transition away from opioids to more natural pain medication. She studied the healing properties of cannabis, and decide to explore growing for medicinal purposes. She began renovating an old abandoned fish plant in Burin that had once housed a High Liner foods seafood processing plant.
Taylor landed a promising partnership with a well-known cannabis company, but after they were bought out the deal fell apart and she was pushed from the market by a new cannabis conglomerate. She refused to give up and raised over five million dollars from private investors.  Taylor is a creative force, with an intense drive and she doesn’t intend on slowing down any time soon.
As her website states “Oceanic seeks to bring positive change to our communities through employment and economic development. We believe Oceanic, its products and its retail experiences, reflect the best of what our province has to offer: creativity, personality and bravery – an uncommon experience for the discerning cannabis consumer.”
