Meet our Executive Team!


Bloom Innovations provides a vertical integration model that is perfect for the horticulture and urban farming industry.

Take Control

Our Irrigation and fertilization is managed by an “Argus” controlled system that injects salt based liquid fertilizers into the water so that pH and E.C. can be adjusted. This system allows plants to be watered in a slow and controlled manner so that 95% of water is retained by plants and run off is minimized. Any excess nutrient salts entering into our local water municipal system is properly discharged and used to create power for our local community.

Self Sustaint

Our streamline plant production process is entirely self-sustained and does not rely on bringing in outside plants. Our objective is to re-create nature in an indoor environment and enforce a low-waste policy using organic, reusable gardening systems and methods.

Pest Control

We believe that the best solution for controlling contamination and pests is with strict preventative measures. We believe that a strict policy of prevention is the number-one way to control the invasion of harmful organisms. Many of these problems can be avoided by maintaining appropriate growing conditions, requiring clean room protocols, and through environmental design. This holistic approach can reduce or eliminate the conditions that these pests and contaminants need for sustainment.

Think big

We are the largest indoor cultivation with multiple facilities in Northern California with rooms as large as 9,000 square feet with 324 lights.
We promote vigorous growth in everything we do.

Our brand

Quality — It Matters

In 2016, Bloom Innovations made a strategic investment to build out a world class R&D and manufacturing lab that was capable of matching its cultivation scale, standard-setting quality, and be able to rapidly produce innovative products; while setting the bar for the cannabis industry. To accomplish these goals, the company assembled a dynamic team with backgrounds in chemical engineering, chemistry, technology, manufacturing operations, and cannabis extraction. The team took on the task to design a purpose built facility to house R&D, Extraction, Distillation, and Post Processing laboratories.

The R&D lab is uniquely equipped to quickly work out and validate new ideas, test new product formulations, and develop solutions to support new products.

The purpose built Extraction Laboratory is an engineering marvel that leverages state of the art environmental and safety systems. It houses the largest custom built hydrocarbon extraction system in the state that produces in-house, contract manufacturing, and white labeled products.
Utilizing a steady supply of in-house top quality plant material and proprietary processes, the Extraction team has produced several award winning concentrate products under the NUG brand name.
The Distillation Laboratory provides in-house and contract manufacturing distillation services, Flash Chromatography, and pesticide remediation. Distillate produced in the Lab is utilized in many of the NUG branded products: Vape cartridges, NUG Needle, and award winning chocolates

The Post Processing Laboratories utilize the outputs from the Extraction and Distillation labs to produce a variety of products.
Oven Room: Crumble, Diamond, Sap, Sauce, Shatter, and Sugar Concentrate products
Clean Room: Liquids, Syringe and Vape cartridge filling machines, Soft Gel capsule production line

Develop state-of-the-art retail location

Award winning design by CFM Inc.
