Me and my business Cannablue suffered a huge loss yesterday. Douglas "Dougie" Mann, a best friend, a master grower, and a 12 year long business partner of mine passed away after a tragic motorcycle accident yesterday. 

Dougie was in the process of building out our two grows in El Dorado County that will supply our delivery & Tahoe dispensary. My deepest condolences go out to his SD friends, his family, & his lab Max. I'm going to miss him dearly and there's some impossible shoes to fill at Cannablue Farms. 

Dougie was an awesome guy, he was hilarious, and he was the hardest worker I've ever seen. I'm sending love out to everyone who knew and cared about him during this rough time. 

You will be missed Dougie! We will always keep your memory alive!


"I just heard this tragic news. I can't begin to tell his family what a great guy Doug is. He was a one of a kind, calm, loving person. He will live on in my memories as a great man who would give you anything he had if you needed it. This is sadder than words can express.."

CHP report: "A motorcyclist has died Sunday after crashing into a tree along an El Dorado County highway, officials said.

The 39-year-old man was traveling northbound on Highway 49 near Riverwood Drive when he crashed into a tree, dying at the scene, the California Highway Patrol Placerville Division said. Officers believe the motorcyclist was going too fast when he tried making a turn.

A nearby homeowner called CHP around 6:20 p.m. after finding the motorcyclist's body."
