The Calyx Peak Story

Our History

Calyx Peak was founded in early 2016 by four friends with deep roots in the global equities market: Howard Keum, Michael Bang, and two silent partners. The group’s first move was to make a small investment in an indoor grow operation in northern Nevada, and within 18 months, they had expanded their investments to include a 8-acre farm in Santa Barbara County, California.

Given the life-changing and life-saving medicinal benefits cannabis has to offer, the founders were committed to educating themselves about its capabilities. They received guidance from one of the leading advocates in the field, Dr. Paul Song, a board-certified radiation oncologist in Los Angeles, and a partnership was formed; he joined Calyx Peak as Chief Medical Officer in 2017.

In addition to his ongoing work on Calyx Peak’s health-related ventures, Dr. Song inspired Calyx Peak's wellness brand, SONG, which will use scientific research and exacting standards to create a range of high-quality products for a multitude of conditions.

Calyx Peak added to its executive ranks in 2019, with Erin Carachilo, an experienced retail finance and operations executive, as CEO.

This ability to adapt to change is vital to success in any fast-growing industry, but particularly necessary in the non-linear development of the Cannabis industry.
