Successful Cannabis Expert ELFLACO Shares His Journey to Success 


Born and raised in Milan, ELFLACO has become one of the most popular personalities in the European cannabis industry. ELFLACO began his adventures into the world of cannabis in Barcelona, where he was doing small jobs at social clubs. Social clubs have become more prevalent in Spain, as many cannabis users want to be involved in cultivation and distribution. Working at these cannabis social clubs helped him learn most of the industry happenings. ELFLACO quickly grasped what was going on in the sector and was soon working as a street promoter.

Since then, ELFLACO has become a member of numerous clubs, including one of the most important social clubs in Barcelona. He has also been an active cannabis influencer on social media, helping him create a name for himself in Italy and Spain. ELFLACO also learned how to organize events at influential clubs in collaboration with some of Europe’s most famous musicians, such as Capo Plaza, Marracash, Gué Pequeno, Sfera Ebbasta, and others. His innovative mindset led him to introduce smoke sessions in the clubs and become better known to VIPs.

ELFLACO’s greatest career highlight came in March 2020, when he worked with the iLMYO brand, to create an innovative product for smokers. They created a one-of-a-kind luminous tray with wireless smartphone charging. The product has since hit the market, and it’s driving smokers in the world crazy. The highlight of this endeavor was seeing the product sell out only a few hours after its launch. ELFLACO considers it a beautiful, emotional moment and often lacks clear words to explain it.

The product’s success offered a significant boost to ELFLACO’s pursuit to place the European cannabis industry on the global map. His main goal has been to follow in the American cannabis industry’s footsteps by creating a unique product that will rival the famous American brand Cookies. Working with iLMYO and Capo Plaza has laid a great foundation, and ELFLACO is sure of more to come from them in the future. Two cannabis social clubs have already been established in Lanzarote and Tenerife, and ELFLACO is confident of a new one opening soon. This will be a great boost in his efforts to raise awareness of the recreational and medicinal uses of cannabis throughout Europe.

Though on the right path to success, ELFLACO admits that the journey to the top was not easy. Leaving Italy, his home country, for Spain was one of the most challenging decisions he has ever made. ELFLACO says that he arrived in Spain without a penny or accommodation and had to loiter around Barcelona for days with no clear direction. Discovering the social clubs marked a turning point in his career, shaping him into the person he is today.

It’s through hard work and dedication to his craft that he has transformed his life for the better. One of ELFLACO’s life lessons is that sacrifices will always pay off no matter the hardships and challenges. It’s very important that people hold on to their dreams and never give up in the face of difficulty. ELFLACO considers life to be a series of ups and downs, with new challenges coming up every day. Fortunately, every problem has a solution; one just needs to find the right way to do it.
