Demetrius Harrington

Cultivation Manager
Ascension Biomedical

Born to a military family, Demetrius (affectionately known as “Dee”) spent most of his childhood moving from one Air Force base to another. He developed a captivation for science early on, especially the natural sciences, and developed his passion and fascination with cannabis during his high school years.

Dee spent some time as a welder before spending 10 years in veterinary medicine as a technician. In the Spring of 2021, Dee decided to start a new career in the cannabis industry, and he joined the Ascension team. He quickly rose from a Cultivation Technician to his current position of Cultivation Manager, where he proudly combines his extensive, worldly knowledge, his love for continuous learning, and his passion for cannabis in order to provide the best quality cannabis products to the patients of Ohio.

When not in the cultivation facility, Dee can be found enjoying Ohio’s many natural resources: he chases steelhead up and down the many Lake Erie tributaries from fall through early spring, and enjoys hiking, foraging, and golfing with friends and familyduring the warmer months.
