Is it the future? Kirk and Trevor delve into the craft cannabis market, again. In this episode, they gather a unique panel of Cannabis enthusiasts, willing to share their views on growing small batches of their best. A British Columbia computer geek turned owner, an Alberta legacy grower gone legit, and a Manitoba seed archivist waiting on a license for his genetics, each speak to what makes their cannabis strains and techniques important to creating a craft cannabis market place. The panel agrees the best fertilizer is the shadow of the gardener and any licenced producer can grow good weed. But, what is their collective agreement, what is the definitive determination of craft cannabis? It may depend on how they treat their flowers at harvest, or possibly the hang-to-dry or lay-to-dry technique. How long do they leave their flower to cure? What if the flower is traveling in plastic to market? Defining craft cannabis may actually mean buying straight from the farmer but, this is not possible yet. Have a listen to how these growers define craft while creating niche markets for their small businesses.
One of the reason Reefer MEDness started was becasuse Trevor couldn't understand why medicinal cannabis wasn't in pharmacies. Well, all the barriers aren't down yet but meet Rahim Dhalla. We've talked to Rahim before, but this time we dive into the workings of his pharmacy, Hybrid Pharm. Hybrid Pharm is a regular pharmacy where you can pick up your diabetes meds, get your flu shot and lately they are even doing COVID-19 testing. But Hybrid Pharm is special for many reasons. Not the least of which is, if all the paperwork is in place, you can walk into Hybrid Pharm and pick up your medicinal cannabis. Welcome to the future, as Kirk and Trevor talk with Rahim about how this all works.
Kirk goes for a snowmobile ride and ends up in Gilbert Plains. He drops in on Hemp Sense and Lyall Bates graciously gives him an interview. Learn how Hemp Sense technology is on the cutting edge of getting CBD's out of industrial hemp. And this isn't from a well controlled green house. This is industrial hemp from an open field.

Hemp Derived CBD is all the rage. Come listen to an expert on how to get it off the field.
