FOR THE HISTORY BUFF
Great Moments in Weed History shares the incredible true stories of heroes and icons spanning the 10,000 years that cannabis has been around. Every week, cannabis author David Bienenstock researches and compiles the history of pioneers like Willie Nelson, Carl Sagan and Brownie Mary, then tells the story for the first time to co-host, writer and personality Abdullah Saeed (whom you might recognize from Viceland’s Bong Appetite). Over a sesh, the two have a conversation about each individual’s impact on the cannabis industry, giving listeners a clearer understanding of the risks people took to get us to where we are today. Great Moments recently ended its first season so start binging and learn your history!
FOR THE CANNACURIOUS
Johanna Nuding is a Cannabis Lifestyle Guide and her potcast Casually Baked is her platform for discussing cannabis as a source of wellness. In her weekly episodes Johanna covers everything from how cannabis has helped her anxiety and depression, to the scoop on terpenes, to firsthand accounts from industry pros on topics like life as a pot farmer and advice on dosing. What we really appreciate about Casually Baked is its frankness and accessibility – Johanna is a fun and compelling storyteller whose encounters with weed are fully relatable. By being open about how cannabis factors into her life, Johanna provides education while defying outdated and inaccurate stereotypes about cannabis and the people who take it.
