“It was love at first puff” was heard from my newest guest Chantel Phillpotts when asked about how her journey into cannabis started. Chantel’s passion for cannabis is so unmistakable that by the end of the 45 minute discussion you’ll have zero doubts as to why she IS the Master of Marijuana.
While our discussion begins with her initial love for cannabis, you may be struck as I was by her vulnerability and strength in sharing how she struggled to overcome an unhealthy addiction to mixing tobacco with cannabis. Chantel’s extensive research (both professional and experiential) has helped her to become not only an amazing budtender but a true educator and retail professional on the cannabis plant and its properties. Listeners can expect to come away from this episode with a deeper knowledge of cannabis, terpene profiles, what she likes about the licensed producers she praises as well as the type of value she brings to her retail customers, and some of the brands she loves.
Some of the amazing notable "quotables" from our episode were:
"Hamilton has the most passionate people in the cannabis community"
"Terpene profiles change according to the environment it's grown in" (and LP's don't seem to want consumers to know that)
"THC is the range but experience depends on the terpene profile"
"Wanna know what that fire is? it's that spice in the beta carophyllene"
