Marapharm appoints George, Hunter as lead cultivators

2018-05-10 15:51 ET - News Release

Mr. Kurt Keating reports


Marapharm Ventures Inc. has appointed Ryan George and Justin Hunter as lead cultivators for the company's EcoNevada and PhenoFarm cultivation and production licences in Las Vegas, Nev.

A seasoned agriculturist, Mr. George has managed multiple large-scale indoor, outdoor and off-grid cannabis cultivation facilities using a variety of techniques during his nine-year tenure in the cannabis industry.

Mr. George's comprehensive cannabis career has taken him around the world, where he has attended numerous conferences and seminars to advance his knowledge of biology, genetics and genotypes. More specifically, the effects of atmosphere, light cycles and nutrients in desert, high-altitude and northern climates. Additionally, he is an advocate of non-chemical pest management and incorporates countermeasures, such as employing companion plants and beneficial insects, to prevent pests specific to cannabis. For the past several years, Mr. George has provided the highest-quality medicinal cannabis to the medical community of Phoenix, Ariz.

Mr. Hunter brings extensive experience in both commercial-scale cannabis cultivation and management of facility operations. He has served as director of cultivation, overseeing all aspects of facility management, including the development of SOPs (standard operating procedures), which are instrumental in providing elevated standards for all aspects of a heavily regulated commercial production.

Mr. Hunter trained and managed teams of employees in effective commercialized methods of task completion, including overseeing crop management by strategizing perpetual harvest schedules, while monitoring the progress of crops for optimal quality, health and yield.

A principal focus of Mr. Hunter's career has been perfecting his "pheno-hunting," a selective cannabis breeding technique used to ensure that cream-of-the-crop genetics are passed along to future generations by breeding clone only strains to purebred males hunted for their vigour and potency. Mr. Hunter used his expertise in this field to champion the company's first genetics, which will be transferred to their permanent location once all inspection approvals are granted.

As a team, they share a dedication to an organic living soil methodology, which creates a higher-quality, pure cannabis while reducing the cost of production. They are committed to the development of a triple organic certified product safe for consumption.

"Ryan and Justin have continually demonstrated their competency and passion for cannabis cultivation over the last decade. Their combined experience in commercial cannabis cultivation, including the selection of commercially viable varietals, will bring an immediate impact to our bottom line. We look forward to having both Ryan and Justin lead the EcoNevada and PhenoFarm cultivation programs," stated Kurt Keating, director of operations.
