Today’s guest is George Hodgin. George is currently the founder and CEO of Biopharmaceutical Research Company (BRC). BRC was founded to address the needs of America's scientific community for diverse types of research quality and federally compliant cannabis and to provide USDA-compliant hemp testing. Cannabis is still illegal under federal law, meaning organizations like universities, biotech, and pharma companies can’t conduct research or clinical trials on the potential medical benefits and detriments of cannabis like they can with other drugs. BRC is working to solve this issue. Prior to founding BRC while getting his MBA at Stanford, George served as a Navy SEAL officer for a little over 6 years where he was responsible for (among other duties) leading a team of 24 Navy SEALs conducting counterinsurgency and counterterrorism operations across five countries in Asia and the Middle East. In this interview, we get into where he grew up and the inspiration for joining the military, his decision to want to become a SEAL and preparation for SEAL training, what it was like to adjust to life outside the teams, and finally his company BRC.
