Even as a young man, Ben Dronkers was aware that the cannabis plant is an amazing resource which offers extraordinary potential benefits for the whole world.
Early on, he made a vow to do everything in his power to advance, promote, protect and nurture the cannabis plant in all its forms, and to preserve its unique genotypes for future generations. Ben wanted to enlighten and educate as many people as possible about the incredible qualities possessed by all parts of the plant.
Cannabis inspired Ben – from the strength of the fibres in its stem to the nutritional value of its seeds; from the medicinal effects of its flowers to the way its roots improve the soil in which they grow. Ben made it his mission to share the advantages of cannabis with everyone.
He continues to pursue these goals today, through a diverse business organisation which is involved in every aspect of the cannabis plant.
The future holds exciting possibilities – there are new hybrids to be created and many carbon-reducing applications for industrial hemp to be explored. Research into the medicinal qualities of the different cannabinoids and support of cannabis education programs continues.
Ben Dronkers’ commitment is as great now as it has ever been. As he says, his passion is fuelled by “the continuous unfolding of the uses and potential of the plant. It’s incredibly rewarding. It never stops.”
