Combining biology, engineering, and industrial processes to streamline our cultivation (with 10 co-authored patents), Reed is the man who makes it all run.
I’ve been a researcher in plant science for many decades and have my name on numerous research papers published in peer-reviewed journals, as well as around 10 patents. With time, I became more and more interested in making research outcomes relevant by actualizing them through scale and implementation in industrial settings.
I love working with my colleagues at United Greeneries, working with the plants, as well as combining biology, engineering, and industrial processes. The cannabis industry is growing exponentially, which means you learn every day and make huge leaps fairly often, compared to millimetres in more established environments. For example, today, we made our milling process for one of the blends 5 times faster. In one day!
Seeing high-quality finished product go out the door and realizing it’s the successful orchestration of dozens of factors and months of effort by hundreds of people is immensely rewarding.
