Episode 88 Hour Two
March 31, 2021

The Cannabis 101 Podcast is your guide through the legalization and consumption of cannabis in Canada and beyond. It’s not just about getting high, it’s about getting healthy. Catch Hour One on Tuesday and Hour Two on Wednesday.

On hour two I welcomed the Head of Marketing for Canada and International at PAX, Shawn King. We chatted about how the company started and what it's doing now with several different vaporizers on the market. If you are on a non Apple phone, the app for the Pax devices is amazing.  Shawn also hosted a cannabis podcast, but pre legalization and we discussed how the stigma has changed since then. One topic I'm glad we touched on was exploring cannabis as more than THC and how keeping track of experiences can help fine tune your cannabis use.

Chris Ianson is our educator and a Regional Manager with Plantlife CannabisEach week on Know Your Buds, we explore a different cultivar and make recommendations for what level of cannabis user it fits with based on their level of experience. Sour Cookies from Simply Bare Organic comes from an LP that not only cares about the plant, but the environment as well, in a big way. Some popular terpenes and some rare ones as well and at 2.5% terpenes it's wicked. The packaging is almost perfect thanks to glass, colour and size and speaking of colours the big mugs had plenty of it. We'll tell you Who-What-When we think it's good for and more. 

The Cannabis Question is about places you've consumed while What Pairs Well with Cannabis is about pain relief for me.

David Wylie of the oz joins me each week to discuss the latest on This Week in Cannabis News. Things happen fast in the still developing cannabis industry and we’ll bring you the top stories. David was back this week and we discussed how Joe Biden is behind the curve when it comes to cannabis legalization based on what American people are saying. There are a lot of questions about indigenous rights when it comes to cannabis and so far very few answers. There is a New York weed state of mind right now for residents of the empire state as legalization is imminent and was very predictable once the plant became legal in New Jersey. Finally, we discussed a positive pot story coming out of the Toronto Sun of all places. Get the latest news from the oz every day here

Malka Labell of the Green Generation Co brings the latest bud-biz-buzz on The Business of Cannabis. We discuss latest the latest innovations, regulations and anything else making some bud-biz-buzz.

As always it comes down to providing education and conversation. Game Changers brought us Earl Oliver, now formally of Gnomestar Cannabis and his journey. In What it Means to be Green, Malka feels the grass really is greener on the other side, meaning B.C. Find out how Malka can help you here.

This week I was invited to a virtual One on One session with Broken Coast Head Grower Kevin Anderson. It was a very educating event and I wish I could share more of it with you, the quality on some parts of the event, doesn't live up to our high standards. I still think you will enjoy the shortened version and get a peak inside Broken Coast.

Chris Ianson is our educator and a Regional Manager with Plantlife Cannabis

Each week on Know Your Buds, we explore a different cultivar and make recommendations for what level of cannabis user it fits with based on their level of experience. I was so excited when I found out we were doing a higher CBD, lower THC cultivar and Dancehall from Spinach didn't disappoint. It's a sativa so great for day time use and it won't get you sky high but rather it invites creativity in a lot of people. We'll give you the Who-What-When it's good for (hint: everyone) and more. 


The Cannabis Question is about music and for What Pairs Well with Cannabis, I went with tough days, as the plant has literally been a life saver for me in the past.

The Cannabis 101 Podcast is your guide through the legalization and consumption of cannabis in Canada and beyond. It’s not just about getting high, it’s about getting healthy. Catch Hour One on Monday and Hour Two on Wednesday.

David Wylie of the oz normally joins me each week to discuss the latest on This Week in Cannabis News, but he couldn't make it this week so I went solo. Things happen fast in the still developing cannabis industry and we’ll bring you the top stories. 
 

I focused on one story this week, and it's something I hope a lot of Americans focus on. Despite the White House previously announcing more lenient policies towards past use of the plant a short time ago, a number of employees have been fired due their past with the plant. Americans need to make sure that this isn't the beginning of a slippery slope with Joe Biden and marijuana laws. Joe Biden needs to be held to the same standard every tried to hold Donald Trump to, and just because he isn't Donald Trump, doesn't mean Biden gets off the hook when it comes to bad decisions. Get the latest news from the oz every day here.

Malka Labell of the Green Generation Co brings the latest bud-biz-buzz on The Business of Cannabis. We discuss latest the latest innovations, regulations and anything else making some bud-biz-buzz. In The Lead topic it was the many different ways the cannabis industry is under siege and what solutions are out there to the problems. Hint, think education!. Game Changers brought us Tanner Stewart who is doing so many good things now when it comes to legalization and has been doing them for a while. Case in point, the documentary he served as Executive Producer for, narrated by Rosario Dawson. In What it Means to be Green, Malka is hoping for some of the Luck of the Irish to stick around and combine with the luck of the 7 leaf plant! Find out how Malka can help you here.

The Cannabis Question is about music. In Weed Words of the Day I went with things like THC & CBD as well as a term for marijuana that has changed over time. The Cannabis Character is from the hilarious show, American Dad.

I love chatting with artists about their cannabis use when it comes to their craft. I can't wait to discuss cannabis and acting with someone. This week I welcomed Charles Padalino of the band Sea of Cars. We discussed how the plant helps him with creativity and writing and who some of his influences are. We also dove into what else Charles uses cannabis for and the very new legal market in the Chicago, Illinois area that he lives in. It was a fun conversation and you'll find out where you can hear the music from Sean of Cars. Plus the story behind the name. 
 

Chris Ianson is our educator and a Regional Manager with Plantlife CannabisEach week on Know Your Buds, we explore a different cultivar and make recommendations for what level of cannabis user it fits with based on their level of experience. Blue Topaz or Slurricane IX from Queen of Bud is what we did a deep dive on this episode. It's a heavy indica that had me so relaxed and it has a marvellous smell and taste, especially for caryophyllene lovers like myself. The story behind Queen of Bud - Ashley Newman - is an awesome one, and fingers crossed I'll be able to get her on the program. We'll tell you Who-What-When we think it's good for and Chris gives a good lesson on why it's not all about THC.

The Cannabis Question is about athletics and What Pairs Well with Cannabis for me is a particular adult channel!!!

Things happen fast in the still developing cannabis industry and we’ll bring you the top stories. We took a trip around the world and came back to Canada for a few stories this week. Mexico is doing the legalization dance once again, will it go smoother this time around and you might be surprised what some polls have showed about the thirst for legalization. Curaleaf is going global and looking forward to the European legalization market when it happens. Closer to home there is a push back on how the tax system works in the cannabis space, as it's clearly broken, while the pot pardons that were projected pre legalization haven't even come close to happening, as the process is extremely long and in some cases costly. Get the latest news from the oz every day here.

Malka Labell of the Green Generation Co brings the latest bud-biz-buzz on The Business of Cannabis. brings the latest bud-biz-buzz on The Business of Cannabis. We discuss latest the latest innovations, regulations and anything else making some bud-biz-buzz. This week it was all about packaging. Are people really avoiding the legal market because of packaging? I find that hard to believe, but there does need to be more work on packaging and labelling. It is getting better, but still a long way to go. We also put the spotlight on companies who are doing a good job in Game Changers and in What it Means to be Green, Plantlife gets a shout out for their take home bags.  Find out how Malka can help you here.

 The Cannabis Question is about athletics, while Weed Words of the Day is about joints and effects and the Cannabis Character is from the movie Kid Cannabis. Hour two comes out Wednesday morning.

I was so lucky this week to be able to visit and tour Parkland Growers just outside of Edmonton, Kieley Beaudry and Dustan McLean were great hosts and guides and I learned so much from them and their amazing set up. You'll be amazed at the video of how they built their Micro Grow Operation. They joined me on the show to chat about growing and why they decided to go with seeds and pre rolls to start. They have some amazing cultivars and I don't know how many companies put the CEO's phone number on the packaging, but they really stand behind their product. Did you know the cannabis plant smells different at night than it does during the day? What is the northern Alberta outdoor growing climate like?

 

Chris Ianson is our educator and a Regional Manager with Plantlife Cannabis

Each week on Know Your Buds, we explore a different cultivar and make recommendations for what level of cannabis user it fits with based on their level of experience. On the menu is Bow Valley OG from OGEN, a privately owned LP from Calgary. We chatted about their facility and growing process and some of the cultivars they have on the way. It's been called a 'Power Sativa' and it has an amazing 6.27% terpenes along with 18.4% THC making it a terrific example of the entourage effect, which we explain in the segment. A lineage with a few different stories, unique packaging and a really, really, really strong smell. 

  
The Cannabis Question is about getting high with movie or TV characters while What Goes Well With Cannabis is about the Dude. Individual segments will be uploaded starting Thursday and don't miss One Hitters with Dustan McLean of Parkland Flower on Sunday.

David Wylie of the oz joins me each week to discuss the latest on This Week in Cannabis News. Things happen fast in the still developing cannabis industry and we’ll bring you the top stories. One of the bigger companies when legalization began is now selling off a massive building in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Another example of going too big too fast. 

Two iconic stoners are getting their own weed store...or are they? Coming to a sequel near you. The cannabis industry has many challenges and censorship is certainly one of them. That's why magazine's like the oz are wonderful with great success stories. 

We wrapped up with some very recent news about medical growing in Canada, thanks to some leaked information.  Get the latest news from the oz every day  Get the latest news from the oz every day here

There's a new concentrate in the game and it's unassumingly powerful. Chad Hason of Stigma Grow joined me to chat Dab Bods, an affordable option for concentrates. Right now they have shatter (it's great btw) and soon they will have other varieties as well. Chad and I chatted about what Dab Bods means and how much fun they can have with the brand, plus how they create it. Their shatter goes perfect in The Slash from Stone Smiths'

We travelled to Saskatoon for this LP as we reviewed The Vision from BOLD. As usual I love the back story and their growing process. The meaning behind The Vision and their dimpled pre rolls are very cool. A unique smell for me and 'Nosey McGee' and a beautiful taste. We'll tell you Who-What-When we think it's good for. 

 
The Cannabis question is about stoner movies, while What Pairs Well with Cannabis is celebrating for me this week.
