Rick founded Hemp Geo Institute, LLC. on January 10th, 2017. Over the past several years, HGI has established itself as the ‘go-to’ organization for world-class cannabis education, resources and the development of CRAFT premium exotic flower grow operations. In 2020, Rick designed a proprietary premium exotic flower, ‘Seed-2-Cure’ facility under the brand Canna Cobra, LLC. which offers continuous production, equipped with top vetted equipment and methods that create a completely controlled micro-environment from seed to final curing. Rick has played a role in the Legislative process in helping states become legal to grow Industrial Hemp/Cannabis in addition to consulting on the development of rules and regulation packages.
