Better seed, better weed
After getting his medical cannabis card in 1996, Attis owner Eli Bilton learned to turn cannabis growing into an art form…
Honing his ability to cultivate plants for decades as a second generation Humboldt farmer, he’s now using the skills he developed to create sustainable, holistic and scientific growing practices. He’s now an expert at producing potent, ethically-grown, clean cannabis in both indoor and outdoor systems.
His business has grown as well, to include a state-of-the-art extraction lab for developing potions, tinctures, oils and edibles.
Eli believes strongly in educating consumers and the community about the extensive therapeutic benefits of cannabis, and in reducing the stigma around cannabis usage. To further this goal, he’s hired expert budtenders whose extensive strain knowledge and advocacy have made them an award-winning addition to Oregon’s thriving cannabis community.
Eli and his entire staff look forward to serving you at one of our six Oregon locations.
To lead the movement to grow cannabis in an environmentally conscious way, developing processes that create a better product for the consumer and the environment while educating the public on the wide therapeutic value of cannabis and removing its stigma.
Eli’s grow in an undisclosed location
Eli Bilton, CEO
Eli is a twenty-year veteran of the cannabis industry with a national reputation as a cannabis product inventor and business operator. A second-generation cannabis grower, Eli is known throughout the country as a celebrity farmer, sought-after advisor, premier authority on extraction and strain development, and owner of one of the most successful dispensary groups. Eli’s understanding of the cannabis space is complete, and his far-ranging vision and invention guides Attis in its development into the national cannabis brand.
Eli’s parents were cannabis pioneers. In 1996, Eli’s father, Randy Bilton, became an acknowledged force in the Emerald Triangle, Northern California’s Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity counties, producing proprietary strains of singular quality. Eli has carried on this family tradition of careful strain development, maintaining a unique family seed bank that reaches back over forty years.
Years of real world practice, decades of study, and a history of business success have brought Eli to the forefront of the cannabis world. Eli and his wife Brianna (a UC Davis botanist) work together to create beneficial new plant-based health-care products. They also collaborate to develop the unique, all-natural growing formulas which help make Attis farms so lush, rapid-growing, and productive.
Ed Williams, Advisory Board Member
Ed has nearly forty years’ experience in business, including serving as an executive in both financial and investment management for a multibillion-dollar financial institution where he managed a $500 million alternative investment portfolio.

As his firm’s CEO, Ed identified investment opportunities in growth-stage food, media, and consumer product companies.
