Great show!

Officially my go-to cannabis podcast. Enjoy Shinade’s hosting.. always asks the best questions and does an excellent job of leading the conversation. Amazing guests too. Highly recommend

Please Add Episode Numbers!

This is an informative podcast. I just wish they would number the episodes like most other legitimate podcasts. It feels like sometimes there are old, repeat episodes being aired and the listener really has no way of knowing without digging deep, which isn’t worth the time.

How can anybody listen to this

The host is terrible she has to be one of the worst interviewers I’ve ever heard. She always just agrees with whatever the person has to say. All this podcast is in paid promotion for companies
