Bryan first joined the cannabis industry when a long-time friend who had already been in the industry a few years needed help on a project. From a research perspective, Bryan gained interest immediately. Bryan states, “The cannabis plant is a fascinating plant with so many diverse uses. The more I learned about the plant the more I realized that I had to be involved in this industry.” Bryan’s aspirations for Tree of Life Seeds and Natural State of Kind is that they both become highly successful companies and that their customers and colleagues know that they are dealing with honest people who hold integrity to the highest standards because this industry is only going to become more main stream.
