Only listened to a few episodes but really impressed...
The world of cannabis is changing so rapidly from the stoner culture of old to a more considered use of this wonderful herb/weed. I struggle to find interesting content that also serves to educate on the subject, and this podcast is a winner. Keep up the great work.
Surprised by the lack of reviews. Very well presented and informed.
Great insights for business and resources
Great podcast full of clear insight and intelligent Q&A with industry leaders and innovators. What I like most is the business and entrepreneur focus, avoiding “stoner” cliche and giving clear guidance on the great opportunities available worldwide in this growing industry. Exciting times!
