Rick Rainbolt

President, Founder /

Facility Development Specialist

January 10th, 2017, Rick founded Hemp Geo Institute, LLC. and founded Canna Cobra, LLC. in January of 2020. Over the past several years, HGI & CC has proven to be a ‘go-to’ organization for world-class cannabis education, resources, and the development of CRAFT premium exotic flower grow operations.


As of January 2023, Rick has developed thirty-five (35) sealed cannabis grow operations in multiple states, held nine (9) sold-out symposiums attracting attendees from 36-states and multiple ‘in-facility’ (Hands in Dirt) training events.


In 2020, Rick designed a proprietary premium exotic flower, ‘Seed-2-Cure’ facility under the brand Canna Cobra, LLC. This new generation facility offers continuous production, equipped with top-vetted equipment and methods that create a completely controlled micro-environment from seed to final curing. The results are precise temperature, humidity, VPD, and air diffusion to produce the perfect environment for growing premium exotic flower. 


Canna Cobra’s design, materials, and building methods create a hygienic environment to protect from pollen, fungal pathogens, and maximum premium flower yield.

Perfect Facility, Perfect Genetics, Perfect Cultivation =

Premium Exotic Flower


Canna Cobra's certified facilities are designed for biologic methods and organic best practices for perpetual high-yield grow cycles, giving clients a year-round production schedule. This innovative process maintains the True Organic Value or “Composition” of the Cannabis plants, (without the added physical deterioration which distorts the final product) that produce full-spectrum, whole-plant concentrates that smell, taste, and test at the highest level of effectiveness. ​


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.

On the personal side… Rick’s passion is eating real farm-fresh organic whole food nutrition along with outdoor human-powered activities (Nature's Gym); Rick calls it... Human-Powered Happiness and he believes… Nothing Tastes as Good as Healthy Feels.
