End 4/20 Shame: Cannabis Education Overcomes Fear | DOPE Magazine

Wednesday, Mar 15, 2017

Simon built Green Flower on the premise that the more educated you are about cannabis, the more acceptable it becomes and the greater respect you gain for the plant—all of which are vital to the industry’s success. That’s why, every single week, Green Flower broadcasts free cannabis classes from over 165 industry experts on almost any topic imaginable from cannabis health to industry news, personal development, DIY and activism, to name a few.

“People want to use cannabis to improve the quality of their lives,” says Simon. “In fact, 98 percent of our audience are people who are interested in using cannabis as a legitimate substance—they’re using it to cope, solve, heal, etc. That’s why we’ve been purposeful about expanding cannabis knowledge. We pride ourselves on answering the questions that people have today.”

And Green Flower’s eventual goal is to reach and educate ten million people. “I believe that there are tens of millions of people who could immediately benefit from our knowledge,” explains Simon. “But as a starting place, I’d like to see ten million people sign up for our classes.”
