About our Education Team

Aaron Whyne, also known as the Noisy Cricket, has resided in Hawaiʻi since 1968. A graduate of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, he has made medicinal plants a part of his life for over 43 years. An avid hiker and diver, Aaron began working in the Hawaiʻi cannabis industry in 2017. His enthusiasm for providing product and general information to cannabis patients grew into an opportunity to provide medical cannabis outreach to home bound patients, their caregivers, and the island community. Through speaking engagements around Oʻahu in our pre-pandemic times, the Noisy Cricket taught cannabis education on a variety of topics to patients and community members alike. You can see his first video, Cannabis Grinds in the education section of our AGA website. Currently, Aaron holds the position of Cannabis Knowledge Coordinator with the Aloha Green Apothecary dispensary in Honolulu, where he does cannabis research and patient consultations.
