  • Want to learn about the Cannabis industry ? Stop Scrolling ★★★★★
    As the Cannabis space grows from a marketplace and subsequently an awareness there are a lot of options for how you can learn about it - you can Google, you can ask your friends, you can subscribe to newsletters but those are mostly people talking at you about Cannabis and what they want you to believe with a ulterior motive. Let me offer you an alternative - two people with differing views have a dialogue about different topics. This podcast is a one stop shop that doesn’t shy away from referencing other experts in the space and what they think. It is their way or the high way - it’s the The Dime
