“Despite what we may be exposed to in the media, I am very optimistic and excited about our future as a species and our relationship with our planet. As a result, I direct my creative and financial resources toward actions that help create a more harmonious future and that help us realize that brighter future faster.”


Klee Irwin is an author, physicist, and entrepreneur who dedicates the majority of his time to Quantum Gravity Research (QGR), a research institute he founded in 2009. The mission of the organization is to discover the geometric first-principles unification of space, time, matter, energy, information, and consciousness.

Klee is also the founder and owner of Irwin Naturals, an award-winning global natural supplement company providing alternative health and healing products sold in thousands of retailers ranging from Walmart to Whole Foods.

In 2018 Klee authored the book Pain Nation, which educates on the science and uses of the cannabinoid CBD that helps with countless medical conditions.

Outside of his work in physics and nutraceuticals, Klee is active in supporting students, scientists, educators and founders in their aim to discover solutions leading to high impact positive change in the world. As the co-owner of Hana Tropicals and its 426-acre tropical flower farm and plant nursery, Klee splits his time between Los Angeles, California and the idyllic town of Hana on Maui.
The Hana Tropicals team works sustainably by replenishing and giving back to the land and people around them by growing and selling a wide variety of exotic tropical flowers, including orchids, that ship nationwide. Continuing his mission to leave the earth better than he found it, Klee also supports and invests in a wide range of people, causes, and companies including, Upworthy, Donors Choose, Moon Express, Mayasil, the X Prize Foundation, and Singularity University, where he is an Associate Founder

Committed to investing in companies with a mission to affect positive change for people and the planet

Klee is optimistic and excited about what the future holds and our relationship with the planet. As a result, he directs his creative and financial resources toward actions that help us realize that harmonious future faster.

Consciously Connected

Klee discusses his life path, how he came to create Irwin Naturals and Quantum Gravity Research, and why CBD is so critical to our country at this moment in time.


It is a movement aimed to unify the country behind cannabinoids and their potential to enhance the human condition. Klee’s book inspired the documentary 6,630,507: The Story of CBD by Mad Machine Films and he has also been featured in it.

Changing the way we look at quantum physics

“I have a funny feeling that humans play a very special role in the
universe self-actualizing itself.”

- Klee Irwin

In 2009, Klee founded Quantum Gravity Research. The institute’s mission is to discover the geometric first-principles unification of space, time, matter, energy, information and consciousness. The model, called emergence theory, is based on quasicrystalline mathematics.

Their research is principally focused on the organization of dense aggregates of tetrahedra in three- and four-dimensional space. Emergence Theory’s framework is described in the short film “What Is Reality?”
