What benefits do you see for patients throughout Florida within this space?
Medical cannabis offers a safer, and often more functional, treatment for patients than traditional pharmaceutical drugs. The option to treat yourself in a natural and holistic way is a benefit in and of itself.
What motivates you to be a part of the cannabis Industry?
The people, the culture, and the truth behind the medicine. This industry has been through A LOT to get to where it is today, which creates a unique environment of incredibly passionate and dedicated individuals who aren’t afraid of oddities and embrace counterculture with open arms. When you tie that with the power of herbal medicine and the general good that comes from our favorite little plant, I can’t think of a better movement to be a part of.
What field are you in within the cannabis space?
I work in creative marketing and branding, focusing on combining art with cannabis in order to create subcultures within our space.
How can people in Florida benefit from the company you represent?
We offer a plethora of cannabis educational materials and our website provides a great resource for those looking to further their canna-knowledge and expand their use beyond chasing THC percentages.
How did you get started within the cannabis industry?
I joined the cannabis industry in Colorado in 2015 and haven’t looked back since. In that time I’ve had the opportunity to work in both the operational and marketing side of medical cannabis, recreational cannabis, industrial hemp and CBD.
Are you personally a MJ card holder?
Yes, I’ve been a medical marijuana card holder in various states since 2015. Without cannabis, my quality of life and mental wellbeing would be diminished. A big part of why I am so outspoken within this industry is because it directly impacts my day-to-day life.
Do you see Florida moving forward with recreational Marijuana/cannabis and how will that affect your business?
It would be foolish for Florida to not move forward with recreational cannabis. We currently have the fourth largest cannabis market in the world despite not allowing recreational sales. If that were to change, we would easily position ourselves as number one in revenue, cannabis tourism, and collected taxes. Should it pass, that would allow easier access to licensing which would give us the opportunity to expand our operations within the state.
