LeBlanc has roots in Washington State’s now extinct medical marijuana system. Coleman Whiting co-founded Azalea Software with his father Jerry to address his seizure disorder. Coleman was an accomplished processor working on Eden Lab’s CO2 extractors. Coleman and Jerry spread CBD-rich clones far and wide. After his untimely death in 2016 due to a seizure (SUDEP) LeBlanc CNE doubled down on fulfilling his vision of compassionate care for patients.
