Bob Dalrymple, MD, MBA
Founder and CEO of Nevada Botanical Science, Inc.

I am a Reno physician who believes in the promise of cannabis as a medicine – which I firmly believe to be a demand-driven, multi-billion dollar industry. I have put together an amazing team of like-minded professionals ready to conquer our market. We are often referred to as “The Doctors Group,” because we have 10 prominent physicians on our team. We have also started a cannabis science research and education program, where we instruct other physicians and health care professionals about the science and medicine of cannabis. Whenever I can find spare time, I enjoy landscape photography, skiing, biking, and traveling.

Robert Summers, PhD
Co-founder of Nevada Botanical Science, Inc.

I am a longtime friend of Dr. Bob Dalrymple and was asked by him to help start Nevada Botanical Science, Inc. I was more than eager to become part of the team. I have more than 20 years of experience in health care management and earned a Ph.D. in organizational behavior and business management. I am proud to be a part of NBS and Trichomic and look forward to educating our medical community and assisting patients. I also enjoy using my hands and building things; in fact, I built my house from the ground up.

Kris Nicholson
Executive Assistant/Office Manager

My involvement in NBS began over 20 years ago when I worked alongside some of our founding members at Renown Hospital. I now take great care to ensure NBS is performing above and beyond the standards required. Seeing what cannabis can do each day for patients, children, and especially Veterans means the world to me. Outside of work hours, I love spending time with my two grown boys and taking weekend road trips anywhere with my wonderful husband Mike.

Production Manager

I have been involved in the industry for at least 10 years now and have a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture from the University of Nevada, Reno. I enjoy using our cutting edge technology to turn a high-quality product into an even purer form of medicine. My favorite strain at the moment is Gorilla Glue #4 – it’s an award-winning hybrid that is fantastic for relaxation.
