Warren Bravo is the co-founder and CEO of Green Relief: a licenced producer devoted to bringing innovation and social responsibility to the medical cannabis field through the use of aquaponics. By combining aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (soil-less plant growth), aquaponics organically simulates a balanced ecosystem in which plants can thrive. After graduating from Mohawk College in Hamilton, Warren became the third-generation of Bravo to join the family business - Bravo Cement Contracting.
