Reggie Harris

Co-founder
House of Kush

Reggie Harris co-founded House of Kush to offer cultivators consulting services to grow House of Kush strains. The company also helps market strains for clients that include entrepreneurs with backgrounds in sports and entertainment.
Harris started the Kansas City-based company two years ago because he wanted to help play a role in changing the narrative of the cannabis industry and bring quality legacy genetics to the mainstream legal market. Still, years of working in professional sports and entertainment taught him that it is simply not enough to have great genetics. It’s important to build a strong brand and story around products. House of Kush has combined sports and cannabis in a way that opens the door to a conversation that breaks down the stigma of cannabis use.
He started his career in accounting in the entrepreneurial consulting groups of Arthur Andersen and Ernst & Young, before transitioning to the sports and entertainment field more than 20 years ago. Reggie launched three different professional sports franchises, and assumed the role of general manager of the Kansas City Brigade in the expansion years of the Arena Football League.
He has had the opportunity to work with several personalities, assisting them in building their brands and businesses off the field. Clients include multiple Super Bowl champions, Pro Bowl NFL players and NFL Hall of Fame inductees. His success comes from leveraging his financial background to assist in attracting start-up funds while protecting the investor value of organizations.
The CBD and cannabis industries are experiencing significant entrepreneurial growth, and there’s a need to find creative ways to build brands with loyal followings. Reggie founded House of Kush to assist in doing just that for brands such as the award-winning SVF OG Kush legacy strain.
Reggie has been featured by High Times, Leafly, Benzinga, KC Business Journal and most recently on the cover of MJ Biz Magazine in March 2023.
