Kyle Kingsley, M.D.

Chairman & CEO
Vireo Health International Inc.

Kyle Kingsley is the founder and chief executive officer of Vireo Health, a board-certified physician, serial entrepreneur and inventor. Kingsley believes that cannabis-based products are a safer, less-addictive alternative to opioids, alcohol and tobacco. He is focused on building the cannabis company of the future by combining the best of medicine, engineering and science.

Kingsley leads Vireo’s physician- and scientist-led team of more than 300 employees in creating best-in-class cannabis products and offering unmatched customer experience. Under his leadership, Vireo has experienced exponential growth. What began as a company operating exclusively in the state of Minnesota in 2014 has now emerged as one of the country’s leading multi-state operators, with licenses in 10 states. In March 2019, Kingsley took the company public, and Vireo Health is now listed on Canadian Securities Exchange, under the stock symbol “VREO”.

Kingsley received bachelor’s degrees in biochemistry and German from the University of Minnesota, Duluth and received a doctor of medicine degree from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. He is co-author of the book Medical Cannabis Primer for Healthcare Providers, written to elucidate objective medical cannabis knowledge in the medical community. Using comprehensive, state-wide programs that integrate healthcare providers, Kingsley’s solitary goal is to make Vireo Health the safest, most reliable and compassionate choice for the patients in all of the states in which the company operates.
