This week I dove into Cannabis Tourism, a part of the industry that has yet to really take off due to strict regulations and the stigma. Jennifer Mason founder of New Heights Cannabis recently hosted a cannabis tourism summit and discussed how the industry is slowly growing in Canada. How does our countries version of cannabis tourism compare to the United States? What impact will Season 2 have on cannabis tourism? In What's That Strain Chris Ianson and I profiled Outlaw Amnesia from Acreage Pharms Ltd., a sativa dominant hybrid with a powerful and fast effect and an earthy and fruity taste.

I had the pleasure of welcoming in studio the owner of SpiritLeaf Argyll in Edmonton, Jessica Petryshyn as well as her store manager Nicole Crane. We discussed what makes SpiritLeaf different than other retail outlets and the satisfaction they both get from welcoming in a new customer. Jessica also gave us a look into what it was like waiting to get the green light on her store. It was a wonderful conversation and we have a Mood storage box - The Beach Comber - to give away, details after the interview. Chris Ianson and I dove into Galiano from Broken Coast who make some high end cannabis. David Wylie of OkanaganZ.com/oz and I discussed cannabis post election and a look back at year one through comments from Anne McLellan.

This week we celebrate the Canadian Cannaversary. It happens on Thursday October 17th and we have a special early Cannaversary present for our listeners. All you have to do is listen, email and a Grav Arc Beaker Water Bong could be yours. You can see a picture of it @TheCannabis101. Greg Tranah of Velvet Management Inc gave me a look at the sales and marketing part of the industry. It's not easy in such a regulated industry but that's where creativity comes in to play. We also chatted with Brad Ward of Meet and Green and announced a FREE movie night in Edmonton!!! Plus Chris Ianson and I took a close look at White Russian from BOAZ, a delightful sativa dominant hybrid that is mid range when it comes to THC and might be a good strain to graduate to for someone new to cannabis. Our Cannabis Character this week is Ben Stone from Knocked Up played by Canadian cannabis legend Seth Rogan, who recently was knocked out of the Cannabis Character Cup. Enjoy! Subscribe! Review!

Peter Kirkwood of Hexo Corp spent some time educating me on how things work at 'The Future of Cannabis' as described on their website. It's a neat look at an award winning and growing company that is ready for Season 2 coming in December. We announced a spook-tacular event being put on by Brad Ward of Meet and Green. If you're a horror movie and cannabis fan, then you'll want to know what is going down - for FREE - on October 28th in Edmonton. David Wylie of OkanaganZ.com/oz dropped in with the big stories in cannabis news including a 'nutty' purchase in Cape Breton at a retail outlet.

With all the bad news south of the border when it comes to vaping I wanted to speak with someone in that part of the industry. Dain Supero and Jack Daneyko of TVape fit that bill. We discussed the 'crisis' in the United States and why that won't happen in Canada, as well as what you can expect from TVape in Season 2 this December. TVape has a lot of cool products whether you vape flower or concentrates. Chris Ianson and I dove into Citrus Punch from Sundial this week and man it's a great daytime strain, really good energy from this one and in This Week in Cannabis News, Canopy Growth getting into the nutrition game with a really big name.
