Ryan Wankel


Multiple cannabis cup award winner, I am a second-generation cannabis grower with 29+ years of cultivation expertise. Featured in the Who’s Who in Cannabis, I frequently speak at industry events and assist with some of the best grows around the Globe. Former member of the Cultivation Advisory Committee with the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), and current member of the Science and Sustainability Committee and the Energy Subcommittee for the Cannabis Certification Council.

Before joining Cultiwool I worked as the Cannabis Grower Liaison for Heliospectra in 2015. From 2009-2015 I led commercial teams at large-scale facilities in Denver, Colorado. I now assist Cultiwool’s distributors/customers in developing irrigation/cultivation strategies for efficient and optimized use of Cultiwool’s high quality stone wool.

I also have experience in large scale commercial vegetable/herb/berry field crops along with greenhouse propagation.
