Episode 5 | Hemp vs Marijuana

If you're in the cannabis space, or the hemp space, or the medical space or you're a consumer, you should be promoting scientific studies of these plants.  You either need to let people know this needs to happen or you need to donate money or you need to donate your genetics to start taking that kind of study to understand where the terpenes come from.  Without forcing our federal government to really look at the lack of studies, the lack of legitimite scientific studies that we have on this, that I think could really be the tipping point.  Because we've known for a long time that it helps people.


Join industry experts, Brian Smalley and Lindsey Pate as we chat more about what the differences are between marijuana and hemp.

We'll get into the benefits of THC and CBD, how they're different and what's legal and what isn't.
