Show Notes: #008 Meadowlands: A talk between David Hua and Monica Gray

We discuss cannabis and parenting, the supply chain, and building the legal cannabis industry


Listen to episode #008 of the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast by clicking play on the widget below. In todays episode we talk about cannabis and parenting, aspects of the supply chain, challenges cannabis license holders have faced since legalization in 2018, and much more.


Welcome to episode 008 of the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast, where it is our goal to remove the fear out of marijuana and educate our listeners on the validated benefits of cannabis for health and society. 

This episode features a conversation between Meadow CEO & Co-Founder, David Hua, myself, and Monica Gray, who is COO & Co-Founder of Nice Guys Delivery and Distribution. 

Both David and Monica are parent's too young children while also owning and operating legal cannabis businesses. You'll hear them talk about what that experience has been like for them and their families while drawing a lot of similarities between owning a cannabis business and being a parent. 

We talk about different aspects of the supply chain, and also how cannabis is a sort of magnet for some really incredible people.

Our conversation takes place at Camp Navarro in Mendocino for the 2nd Annual Meadowlands Event. Meadowlands is an annual retreat designed to build a united and collaborative cannabis community. I really enjoyed it because we were surrounded by giant Redwoods and were left without service. It was a really wonderful time connecting with friends, new and old, from within the cannabis industry.

Heather talks about her experience working in the legal cannabis industry. Learn how Bloom Farms is giving her a chance to live in her passions

Episode 007: Interview with Heather | Account Manager for Bloom Farms

“Legal cannabis is currently the greatest job-creation machine in America. The cannabis workforce increased 21% in 2017. It gained another 44% in 2018. We expect at least another 20% growth in jobs in 2019. That would represent a 110% growth in cannabis jobs in just three years.” - Leafly

 

Welcome to episode 007 of the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast, where it is our goal to educate consumers while removing the fear out of marijuana. The show is run by Nice Guys Delivery employees who interview other industry peers to lift the veil of the legal California cannabis industry.


In this episode, we talk to Heather who is an Account Manager for Bloom Farms. She is one of the first vendors Nice Guys Delivery ever worked with when we first opened our doors in 2016, and she is a great example of a professional in the space. We talk about how cannabis is changing the landscape and giving a lot of people opportunities and jobs. The industry offers upward mobility for anyone willing to work.

"You have to be passionate about cannabis to really do this." - Heather

Bloom Farms is a staple in the California cannabis market. One of the reasons we like them so much is because of their desire to be nice and give back to the communities they're serving. They formed a 1-for-1 program that has donated over 1.6 million meals. They partner with 9 local food banks across the state to make this happen. Last year Nice Guys joined Bloom Farms on World Food Day to donate food at the SF Marin Food bank.

San Rafael, CA - The City With A Mission

Danielle O'Leary is a leading member of the team creating the legal cannabis program in San Rafael, California. She is the Director of Economic Development and Innovation and because of her efforts, Nice Guys Delivery and others are able to legally sell cannabis in San Rafael and Marin County.

In this episode, we talk to Danielle about San Rafael's Cannabis Program and how it’s been going since it was created. We talk about different ways cannabis is bringing positive change to the community and also a little bit about her background. This is a unique conversation with someone from outside the industry.

Thank you for listening to the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast. 

Please leave a comment and let us know what other type of cannabis content you’d like to hear!

We appreciate you! 

Our talk is based around these questions:

  1. You are helping write and guide policies for a community trying to embrace cannabis. How did you come to this position and what is the career history that led you here?

  2. The majority of Marin voted for legalization and each community across California is embracing prop 64 in their own way. Marin has eased its way forward regarding policies. What's the next progression? 

  3. Have licensed cannabis businesses been good operators in San Rafael? How are we doing?

  4. What is the biggest concern from the city's point of view? What are some mistakes you've seen other communities make?

  5. Where is the tax revenue being applied?

  6. Aside from Tax revenue, what do you and the city hope to see from us as licensed businesses? 

  7. Have you seen an increase in crime since San Rafael began allowing legal cannabis sales? 

Additional Notes and Resources:

"On March 4, 2019, San Rafael City Council approved amending our current medical cannabis policy to allow existing licensees the ability to serve the adult-use market. This recent action does not permit new retail storefront licensing activity.  The list of approved license types and allotments are shown below:"

Cannabis License Allotments

  • Cannabis Testing Labs (State License Type 8): 4 licenses 

  • Infused Product Manufacturing MIPs (State License Type N): 8 licenses

“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality.” — CARL SAGAN

Cosmic View was founded in 2017, as a marriage between science, art and California lifestyle. Their line of products mirrors an obsession with pure earth products that honor our role as caretakers of this planet and the cosmic order of nature. 

Christine Skibola:

Christine Skibola is a former UC Berkeley professor and a leading international cancer researcher.  Semi-retired from academia, she is pursuing her passion helping those with cancer and other chronic illnesses through lifestyle and dietary changes and holistic approaches.  Using her scientific background, Christine produces Cosmic View’s topical and supplemental cannabis formulations aimed at helping individuals with health conditions. 

Christine was a Professor of Epidemiology and an Endowed Chair of Oncology in the Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Alabama, Birmingham until 2016.  She received an MS and PhD in Environmental Health Sciences with an emphasis in toxicology and genomics at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, where she remained as a faculty until she was recruited to UAB in 2012. Her main research focused on the study of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that influence cancer risk and disease. She is considered an international leader in the molecular epidemiology of lymphoma and is currently an Adjunct Professor at the Emory School of Medicine.  Dr. Skibola is an author of over 100 peer-reviewed science journal articles in prestigious publications such as Nature Genetics, Blood, Lancet Oncology, and JAMA Oncology. Before she (mostly) retired from academia, she worked with doctors from the Mayo Clinic, Harvard Medical School, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Memorial Sloan Kettering and UCSF to name a few. 

Dr. Skibola is interested in the role of diet, lifestyle and mind-body practices in the prevention and treatment of cancer, as well as exploring how cannabis may be used to treat cancer symptoms and disease. Dr. Skibola is passionate about directly empowering patients regarding their health.

NICOLE SKIBOLA

Once trained as a lawyer, Nicole Skibola is a cancer survivor and artist. Nicole is a recent Brooklyn transplant and lives in Marin County, California. Her passion for holistic health deepened after surviving a rare endometrial cancer at a young age. Nicole has been interested in cannabis products, particularly CBD extractions for her ongoing physical health, notably for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties.

Nicole is the author of Wakeful Night, published with Dottir Press in the fall of 2018. Wakeful Night is an illustrated exploration of cancer-related loss she developed to lead readers through their own stages of identity, fear, and metaphorical thinking associated with a cancer diagnosis. Through art -- the book also contains a series of Skibola’s abstract linocut prints and India ink paintings -- and some narrative storytelling, Wakeful Night aims to support readers to understand their experience of cancer and develop a creative practice.

Nicole brings business savvy and a love for beautiful packaging and modern aesthetic to Cosmic View and is in love with the holistic health practitioners in her life she feels fortunate to call friends.  She is interested in the role of diet and lifestyle, such as Ayurveda, juicing and meditation in her ongoing physical and mental health, as well as the role of personal storytelling in making sense of life's unexpected turns. She has worked with the USC Norris Cancer Center, the Brooklyn Cottage, and will expand her creative grief work in relation to cancer with the publication of her book in the fall. She is a regular contributor for A Women’s Thing, a print and online magazine based in New York where she writes about entrepreneurship, feminism and finding your path.

They are North Lake Tahoe’s 1st and ONLY legal cannabis delivery service operating out of Truckee, California!

Winter Greens Delivery (@wintergreensdeliver) is a cannabis delivery service dedicated to educating and guiding its customers about the validated benefits of cannabis for health. They make pain relief accessible, affordable and discreet while striving to make each member experience as unique as they are. 

Dan, Colleen, and Ashley sit down for a conversation in Sacramento after a recent Flow kana industry party where they got to meet some of the farmers, a glass blower, and other industry members. They couldn't find anywhere quiet to talk so they have this conversation from the inside of a car. 

The discussion is centered around Ashley as she talks about Winter Greens and the experience she's had since they first opened on Jan. 28th, 2019. They are North Lake Tahoe and Truckee's 1st and ONLY licensed cannabis delivery service. When asked about some of the challenges she mentions the weather conditions as the drivers attempt to deliver weed in the middle of a snowstorm. I can imagine it being extra tricky trying to deliver cannabis in the middle of a blizzard - props to the winter greens delivery drivers. Tips are always appreciated.

[Podcast] Episode 1: Get to know the Nice Guys

PodcastNice Guys DeliveryComment

Welcome to the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast!


Welcome to the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast where a group of coworkers talks about their everyday working lives as employees of the legal California Cannabis Industry.

Our show is dedicated to educating listeners about the validated benefits of cannabis for health, as well as giving them an eye into the industry as it climbs out of the wild west and into a fully regulated market. Join us for a high conversation.


Last November, Nice Guys traveled to Las Vegas, NV for the annual MJBizcon Cannabis Conference. Thanks to the help of Flow kana mini joints 707 flower and the creative energy obtained from experiencing something new, we manifested the idea to start a podcast.

Our podcast is all-inclusive - meaning you’ll be hearing from most of the members on our team, if not everyone at some point. We each come to Nice Guys from our own unique backgrounds and we cherish the fact that cannabis is what brings us together. We started this podcast to shine light on the industry and help educate people so they no longer have to fear marijuana.
