Delivering HGI clients world-class CRAFT “top-cut”

organic grow facilities, education and opportunity

for the Hemp/Cannabis industry. 

WELCOME!

Hi, this is Rick Rainbolt, founder of HGI. We invite you to attend; The Art & Science of CRAFT “Top-Cut” Grow Operations, Ohio event, 2020. HGI has taken the Best-of-the-Best from the Master Grow CERT™ programs and all of you are in a position to leverage this opportunity.

 

For the past several-years HGI has established itself as the ‘go-to’ organization for world-class Hemp and Cannabis grow facilities, education and opportunities. HGI specializes in the development of CRAFT “top-cut” organic grow facilities and operations.

 

As of January 2020 HGI has developed twenty-five (25) indoor/closed environment and light-dep greenhouse grow operations in multiple states, held eight (8) sold-out educational symposiums attracting attendees from 36-states, one (1) “Hands-In-Dirt” training event for top Master Grow “CERT G2” clients and have given out seventeen (17) Master Grow Facility certifications.

 

HGI’s facilities are hygienical environments for biologic methods and organic best practices. CERT facilities are designed for perpetual high-yield grow cycles, giving clients a year-round production schedule.

 

Our model from day one… “Think Big, Start Small”. HGI’s Master Grow C.E.R.T programs are about developing a specific top-cut grow model that begins with a CRAFT (small) ‘organic’ and hygienical operation. Once clients are established within the industry, their operation can be scaled.

It’s important to minimize financial exposure and accelerate ROI over a short period of time.

We're on a mission to help CRAFT operations safely approach this new and viable industry while creating new American jobs.

 

From our experience, starting back in 2017 here in North Carolina, the biggest point of difference to your success will be your level of knowledge. In this new industry, not having the proper education… It can be very expensive.

We look forward to seeing you.

 

Sincerely,

Rick Rainbolt,

FOUNDER/President,

Hemp Geo Institute, LLC.

  3. High-level organic cultivation skills

 

The result is full-spectrum, whole-plant concentrates that smell,

taste, and test at the highest level of medicinal effectiveness.

This innovative process maintains the TrueOrganic Value or

“Composition” of the plants’ medicinal potential without

the added physical deterioration which distorts the

final product.

Pre-Registration

Pre-registration is open. Contact information (No CC) is all that's needed at this point. HGI will send an email with the confirmed location and how to secure your tickets.

SUCCESS is accomplished by providing students and clients with the most current and best practice information the industry has to offer. The OHIO event specializes within a narrow segment of the industry... CRAFT Operations.

 

You will learn the turn-key fundamentals from start-up costs, ROI and perpetual rotation cycle to generate the highest yield possible.

 

You will be one step closer to becoming a Master Hemp/Cannabis Grower!

Designing an indoor efficient facility to grow cannabinoid hemp must have a well-thought-out plan. Without a specific plan, the cost of the project will escalate far above the budget, in addition to the consideration all the requirements outlined in the regulations prepared by the governing body and the regulations of the municipality where the facility(s) will be constructed.

 

The Art and Science of CRAFT "Top-Cut" Grow Operations event is designed for those who are completely committed to achieving the very highest standards in this emerging and profitable industry. Committed to developing world-class venues that are hygienically built to produce the finest possible cannabinoids.

The Growers who will WIN big in the CRAFT sector, are the ones who simply commit to nothing less than excellence!

Genetics

Quality Genetics IN - Quality Flower OUT!

Learn how to select the right reputable seed company to provide high-valued offspring for your operation. Discover why stable & predictable genetics are so important for the cultivator and why pairing yourself with the right breeder is the foundation of your operation!

Learn how to determine viable seed from unviable seed and to make sure the seed company you choose handles their production in a sealed environment with UV-C and Hepa Filtration. Also, why having genetics that were specifically bred and stratified for your operation is so important! Top Cut Premium CBD cannabis flower can only be as great as the potential of that specific genetic.

Subjects Covered...

Genetic Fundamentals

 

• Selecting specific cultivars

• Why so Important?

• Defining a Great Genetic?

• Selecting a reputable breeder

 

and several more vital subjects!

Lighting Fundamentals

One of the Most Important Capital Investments

In the afternoon session you will learn critical information to one of your most important aspects to developing a CRAFT “top-cut” grow operation… LIGHTING. HGI utilizes testing procedures to determine the efficacy of different lighting fixtures for multiple growing environments. Hemp Geo Institute will not make lighting recommendations to clients without proper data and testing protocols. One bad mistake in lighting decisions can cost grower’s thousands of dollars.

Subjects Covered...

Lighting Fundamentals and Why so Vital

• Light is not just light

• Know the different lighting technologies

• What are Lumes, Lux, PAR & Micromoles?

and several more vital subjects!

Light-Dep Greenhouses

Many growers are switching to auto light-dep greenhouse growing systems and Rick will cover the fundamentals and why it's a growing trend when growing cannabinoid hemp. By utilizing blackout greenhouse systems, growers are able to automate and control their growing environment for successful multiple-harvests per year.

 

With light deprivation and automated environmental controls, growers can yield outdoor size production with indoor quality grows, all while reducing overhead costs and power consumption. Growers need to understand the effect on their Geo-location when growing in humid climates, however, dry desert climates have their own challenges.

 

Any area where a greenhouse is located comes with its own special climate challenges to overcome. To overcome these challenges takes research, planning, and with a complete understanding of the type of phenotypes, you are growing.

 

With the correct covering and ventilation techniques, you can create a greenhouse that adjusts to the ideal temperature, diffuses light, and eliminates condensation. This type of growing system allows the 'best-practice' strategies to be employed to better control mold and pathogens caused by excess humidity, in addition to any environment you are exposed to.

 

With careful research, thorough planning, and the right equipment, you can have a flourishing light deprivation greenhouse even in the hottest, most humid, or driest climates!

Subjects Covered...

How to Set-Up a Light-Dep Greenhouse

• Preparing the foundation

• Setting the footers

• Determine the flooring type

• Cost for the prep work

• Construction buildout cost

and several more vital subjects!

You will receive a detailed workbook guide, outlining the specific topics within each lesson category.

CRAFT Indoor Facilities

A craft indoor facility serves many purposes. The indoor facility works in concert with the light-dep greenhouse for seedling starts and small veg plants that will be rotated into the light-dep greenhouse. This will give the grow operation more rotation cycles throughout the year.

 

In addition, this facility will give the operation 'indoor-flower' to sell. Some buyers only want organic indoor grown cannabinoid flower. There are many more aspects to developing craft indoor facilities that will be covered at the event.    

Subjects Covered...

How to Build a CRAFT Indoor Facility

• Design operation floor plan

• Create lighting design grids for each grow room

• HVAC design, sizing and energy usage data

and several more vital subjects!

Advanced Perpetual Revenue Model

Perpetual Revenue is the practice of having all stages of your plants ready for rotation, at the exact time the schedule calls for. Simple to understand the concept but much harder to execute.

Perpetual grow operations take time and experience to master the process. Justin will take you through an advanced model he has perfected over many years of experience running large commercial grow operations. 

Subjects Covered...

Implementing Advanced Perpetual Programs

• Success with growing first

• Having a great nutrient line up

• Time & Experience

• Having a grow program that's company-specific

and several more vital subjects!

Operational Vertical

Integration

Presented by... Erik Larson

To be successful in the Hemp/Cannabis industry, multiple layers of businesses above and below your core business must focuse on a common goal and serving the client’s specific needs.

 

What are wholesale and retail clients looking for?

 

CONSISTENCY – RELIABLE – TRUST – QUALITY – ORGANIC – HYGIENICAL

 

Individuals and organizations must see the value in understanding the many facets and steps to developing and launching the components of a complete vertically integrated, clean, compliant “Seed-to-Sale” hemp/cannabis business.

 

By defining a parent child structure from the top key elements of a vertical integration down to the subsets of each segment that accelerate hemp/cannabis businesses. Recognizing the importance of understanding and acquiring the complete picture or puzzle necessary for; ‘out-of-the-gate success.

 

Erik will teach and convey the foundational best-practices necessary to understand each aspect of the 10-steps of Vertical Integration that can dramatically affect the success of your business.

 

It’s not an easy task of integrating genetics, growing, processing, product development, post processing, data acquisition, market analysis, branding, marketing and distribution. Erik brings you years of experience of working within fully vertically integrated organizations in the hemp/cannabis industry and will teach you what he has learned over the years.

Only a few of the many subjects

that will be covered at the event!

Growing consistent world-class cannabinoid hemp requires both Art and Science. This approach includes an understanding of environmental controls, pest management, nutrient uptake, lighting, soil health, and water systems and so much more.

HGI's trainers and experts can prevent you from easily falling victim to costly mistakes and imbalances that will reduce your yield, quality and consistency. Small mistakes can cost you a substantial amount of money and can be avoided with proper training.

"The United States is the largest consumer
of hemp products in the world!"

HGI"s model from day one…

“Think Big, Start Small”.

HGI’s Master Grow C.E.R.T. programs are about developing a specific top-cut grow model that begins with a CRAFT (small) ‘organic’ and hygienical operation. Once clients are established within the industry, their operation can be scaled. It's important to minimize financial exposure and accelerate ROI over a short period of time.
