We are proud to announce that Oaksterdam University alum Pete “Big Pete” Feurtado and his Santa Cruz-based business Big Pete’s Treats are featured in High Times magazine.

Pete attended Oaksterdam in the fall of 2009, and it was here that the seeds for his successful business were sown. As part of Oaksterdam’s Business of Cannabis certification coursework, students embark on a business plan with guidance and feedback from our expert faculty. 

Pete’s capstone project evolved into the Big Pete’s Treats. Around the same time, Pete “Little Pete” Feurtado, Jr. concluded his studies at a separate academic institution. This timing seamlessly brought father and son together to channel their collaborative energies into home-based edible concoctions.

The two Pete’s sold their maiden batch of cookies in January of 2010, and have been crafting cannabis butter and perfecting cookie recipes ever since.

In a landscape where enterprises ebb and flow, the enduring success of Big Pete’s Treats over 14 years is notable. The enterprise germinated as a modest culinary experiment and burgeoned into a multi-state operation specializing in infused edibles.

As this chapter unfolds over a decade and counting, the founders’ unwavering commitment has yielded an array of over ten infused cookie variations, meticulously crafted using their proprietary full-spectrum cannabis butter, all while maintaining their pioneering role in the realm of edibles.

We are proud to play a role in the success of Big Pete’s Treats and support our alumni around the world.
