Greg Autry began breeding cannabis plants in 1998 and continues this practice to produce viable strains for Texas with 3 strains showing test results of 20% CBD and over so far. His hydroponic growing experience of decades has led him to develop unique innovative growing methods that allow him to produce amazing terpene profiles and yields. He still consults for large farms across the country to support his startup and expansion of his new Texas company Sweet Sensi CBD. 
Greg's approach to cannabis has always been from a scientific and medicinal approach and has extended that to the Texas hemp market building a state-of-the-art facility in Austin, Texas that grows hemp hydroponically, extracts hemp using water/ice or low heat press method and manufactures small batch gourmet candies, tinctures, topicals and pet products. These recipes have been collected and developed over the course of decades and been proven in several markets across the country.
