Jhavid Mohseni

Jhavid’s career spans over 27 years, showcasing a remarkable track record of building and scaling companies across diverse industries.

He began his journey in aquaculture, where he played a pivotal role in expanding his family’s business into a global powerhouse. Under his sales leadership, the company became the country’s largest exporter of fresh fish, serving clients from Los Angeles to Tokyo with weekly sales exceeding 30 tons.

Jhavid’s entrepreneurial spirit then led him into the consumer electronics industry, where he founded and later sold a successful company. This company distributed 14 prominent brands, including industry giants like Apple, across 14 countries, achieving annual revenue of over $10 million USD.

Recognizing the potential of the burgeoning cannabis market, Jhavid founded Tamerlane Trading in 2016. Tamerlane quickly became the world’s leading quality-verified marketplace and brokerage firm for bulk wholesale cannabis. Today, Tamerlane has traded nearly $100 million USD in bulk wholesale volume and facilitated 1000s of successful transactions for 100s of licensed operators.

Jhavid’s commitment to quality standards and efficient trade led him to spearhead the establishment of the International Cannabis and Hemp Standards (ICHS). As a non-profit organization, ICHS has been instrumental in establishing a common language while promoting trust and transparency within the cannabis supply chain since 2018.

Through his venture, Big Tree Grading, Jhavid implemented ICHS standards and graded over 500K pounds of cannabis. The results were astounding, demonstrating that quality grading reduces returns and cancellations by 90%, boosts inventory turnover by 60%, and increases average selling prices by up to 15%. Realizing the challenges of scaling this business, Jhavid pivoted.

In 2023, Jhaivd co-founded Cannafax with Bahar Wadia, a successful tech entrepreneur, knowing that technology would be critical for the evolution of efficient global trade. The Cannafax platform provides access to objective, AI-enabled qualitative grading, real-time market appraisal data, and real-time access to local, verified inventory listings. The Cannafax tool infuses trust and transparency into the bulk, wholesale cannabis transaction, creating the fastest way to trade bulk cannabis with confidence.

Jhavid loves Rubik’s cubing business challenges. He fosters a supportive environment for his team, empowering them to achieve their objectives. Moreover, Jhavid is deeply passionate about personal growth, working with psychedelic plant medicines and silent meditation techniques to expand consciousness.

Overall, Jhavid’s entrepreneurial journey exemplifies resilience, innovation, and a relentless pursuit of excellence across industries while also emphasizing the importance of personal and professional growth.
