The CannaBS Detector


Have you ever thought about quitting your day job to pursue getting a slice of the multibillion-dollar cannabis industry pie? Are you currently investing in, or considering investing in the cannabis industry? If you answered yes to either of those questions, YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS THIS PODCAST.

Join the cannabis industry's very own veteran BS detector, Kristen Yoder, as she uncovers and dissects the various scams and pitfalls most, if not all, people will encounter along their cannabis journey, through entertaining and informational interviews with experts across the industry.

“The best decisions are informed decisions, and in an industry as new and hyped up in the media as the Cannabis industry is, there are many opportunities for BS to occur, and it is occurring on a major scale."

This episode of the CannaBS Detector is unlike anything we’ve ever done before. This time they are going to the audience for suggestions and give quick takes on tons of important topics that weren’t really in depth enough to justify an entire episode. They cover a lot of ground on this episode on a ton of various topics from advocacy to compliance, basic common sense to tips and tricks, and a whole lot in  between. 

Kristen and Brett start off with a few hot takes on Cannabis DUIs, and their answers probably aren’t what you expect. Short answer: don’t smoke and drive, and if you’re a medical patient who is high all the time please understand your limits and the risks. Oh, and for the love of God please stop posting videos of dabs on the freeway and blunts passing between  cars. These are oftentimes hilarious but are also the very ammo the prohibitionists will use against us  all. 

Later they dig in on being high at work and find their first point of contention. Kristen is stone sober these days, and recounts terrible times gone by of being high behind the counter, while Brett gets into his daily use and the fact that no one in his life has probably seen him not high in the last 4 or 5 years. Once  they are done with the work discussion they dig hard into the nuances of legalized home grow and why it’s so important for the longevity of the industry. 

Later  down the road the team has their first real disagreement in the form of transplants entering the industry. They both agree it’s often a matter of passion rather than career growth, and entering the industry usually involves a step down in pay/title with an increase in workload, but past that all bets are off in terms of the specifics. Do you have a guess on who thinks transplants are a good thing and who thinks it’s a bad thing? (don’t cheat and listen then answer). 

4 Key Takeaways: 

  • Don’t get high and drive… period. Yes, this means medical patients too. (don’t text and drive, drink and drive, or anything else “bad” and drive either)
  • The argument that home grow is unsafe  for consumers or isn’t properly regulated is totally bogus propaganda from poorly run corporate boof factories who are afraid you growing your own will be competition for them
  • Overcoming the stigma starts with education for those around you, and can be greatly aided by finding your tribe. Regardless of age, race, religion, income level,  or any other demographics there is most definitely more people just like you out there who consume cannabis
  • Transplanting into cannabis has never been easier, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to stay in the industry once you’re here. Working in cannabis isn’t all bong rips and good times, so be careful who you work with and what roles you accept
