GREG KRUGER, Chief Operating Officer
Greg Kruger is a founding partner and the Chief Operating Officer of DREEM Nutrition.

His experience equipped him with a passion for science and a mandate for compliance. Greg is a believer in natural plant based therapies and works hard to ensure that the highest science and quality is understood, implemented, and delivered. If you catch a presentation from Greg, he will likely pair an understanding of the science of cannabis in the human body, with the power of personal accountability and emotional health. Greg is an avid student of meditation, neurology and personal growth. His passion is to help people and that is why he is in this industry and on the DREEM team. “It’s simple, our body makes and uses cannabinoids for its ultimate balance and functioning. What better way to help people than to research, create and educate on products that can supplement the natural system of our bodies.”

He quickly married his wife Rachel and has been married for 20 years. He has 2 kids Kole(16) & Kali (15). He is the older, much wiser brother of Austin, CEO. After a few years he diverted into the real-estate world for about 10 years where he served as VP of Sales for a title & abstract firm. He has spent the past 12 in the tech field working with government agencies. Most recently (the past 3- 4 years) has developed a passion for hemp. He has seen the incredible impact that hemp products can make in ones life. With the opioid epidemic in this nation, he sees hemp as the cure all for those drugs.

RYAN SONNIER, Head Grower
I am a US Navy veteran and I have spent the better part of ten years with my hands on cannabis. Whether we are talking nutrition, fiber and grain, paper and textiles, biofuel, environmental remediation, medical application etc., -the list seems endless. The versatility of hemp is incredible. The impact this industry will have[has] on the world is incredibly beneficial. Being able to navigate that territory and help shape the future is what makes growing hemp so exciting. Pioneering this movement is the most fulfilling endeavor I have ever been a part of. It is humbling and an honor; to say the least.
