He’s been extensively involved in the breeding and cultivation of cannabis since the industry’s early stages in Colorado, which has primed him for the broader hemp industry’s emergence after 2012. Cannabis genetics remains an ongoing focus on Miles' farm in Colorado where the Wulf variety was developed and outcrossed. Miles’ Colorado farm is also home to production of a biological plant based nutrition system that Miles has created. The preparations provide increased crop resistance to pathogens, improve overall soil health and are made from nutrient rich plant matter, primarily hemp.
