    Hempresent 2019 Rewind With Karen Averill And Jerry Whiting

    Hempresent 2019 Rewind With Karen Averill And Jerry Whiting

    Hempresent 2019 Rewind With Karen Averill And Jerry Whiting. Weeding out the norm in stamped leaf patterns with Karen Averill of Cannaflage. Along with the introduction of today’s nascent legal cannabis industry has come an explosion of interest in all things cannabis. The formerly nefarious, illicit herb is experiencing a cultural renaissance as an evolving focus on the cannabis lifestyle emerges into the daylight of mainstream attention. Modern canna-fashion for this new age of the herb is advancing on par with a penchant for the plant’s therapeutic and euphoric effects. Imagine, if you will, bright green cannabis leaf fractals emblazoned across a variety of pants, skirts, neckties, umbrellas, and more. But you do not need to invoke your imagination, because these are a few of the products you can get today from Oregon based Cannaflage Designs, and I have the proprietor Karen Averill with me to tell you more about her canna-centric company where she puts the high, in high definition, photography.

    Today on Hempresent were joined by Jerry Whiting, founder of Leblanc CNE. Founded in 2012 in Seattle, LeBlanc CNE focuses on cannabis & hemp genetics, formulations & product development, research & education. They specialize in CBD-rich cannabis & hemp and vintage heirloom landraces strains of cannabis sativa l. They support organic, sustainable cultivation and permaculture practices including advanced composting techniques. Jerry helps us take a deep dive in the 2018 farm bill and how it can and will affect the cannabis industry as a whole.

One of my favorites

I'm going to give this 5 stars because Vivian is a great host, has great guests, and I have loved every episode of this podcasts that I've listened to. The host Vivian has a great attitude, a great radio voice/personality, and is a pleasure to listen to. Hearing him interact with his guests is always very enjoyable.

Now, I'm going to complain about it a little bit, and make you wonder what's wrong with me. Why am I rating this podcasts 5 stars and saying it's one of my favorites, and then dedicated a paragraph to complaining about it? Well, read on, I suppose: my main gripe with the show has nothing to do with the host or the content in general, but the way it's run like a radio show of the olden days. The commercials come up a little too often, and sometimes, the guests have to be cut off to "take a break." To me, that's one of the aspects of radio that podcasts has done away with, and it's unfortunate to see a podcast still run like a radio show.

All in all, though, I love this podcast, and I think it needs to be heard by more people. You'll always have the theme song stuck in your head after you listen to it like me!
