Connect with Tim

Tim McGraw

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Tim founded Canna-Hub to create the largest, most sophisticated cannabis real estate portfolio in California. Through Tim’s leadership, Canna-Hub identifies sites in strategically located cities that can accommodate hundreds of cannabis licensees in an organized manner through the development of Canna-Hub Business Communities, or “cannabis hubs.”

Since November of 2016, when it all started, Canna-Hub has secured sites in Colusa and Fresno Counties, allowing for a combined total of approximately 1.6 million square feet of production facilities on 100 acres available for cannabis business operations that are compliant with California’s new medical and adult use cannabis regulations.

Tim has been developing and managing real estate for almost 20 years and over the last five years has become a respected cannabis industry executive and expert.  Prior to founding Canna-Hub, Tim founded and was CEO of the largest cannabis cultivator and manufacturer in Illinois holding two of the 21 permits and over 150,000 sq. ft. of operations.

Returning to his real estate and entrepreneurial roots, Tim’s community-centered approach to development positions Canna-Hub on the forefront of California’s “Green Rush.” Canna-Hub features the state’s first-of-their-kind cannabis communities that offer some of the lowest permitting fees in the state and encourage valuable synergies among multiple business types.

Tim’s proven track record of identifying and partnering with small, economically-challenged communities to create jobs, increase the tax base, and drive economic activity is a testament to his character as a progressive industry leader and visionary. In 2015, High Times recognized Tim’s efforts with the High Times Trail Blazer Award. In 2018 Tim was once again recognized by High Times, this time including him amongst the “Top 100” most influential people in the Cannabis industry. He has also been featured in many print and digital media outlets including New York Times, ReutersHuffington PostEntrepreneurLA WeeklyCrain’sHigh TimesCannabis Business Times, Cashinbis, and others.

Jonathan built a solid finance and accounting foundation by spending the first 9 years of his career as an outside auditor and advisor with the public accounting firm of Arthur Andersen, LLP. Jonathan earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Accounting from Indiana University, Bloomington, and is a CPA.
