This series is a powerful platform to educate listeners and unpack the many misconceptions about cannabis, and also a way to share my personal journey into the cannabis industry,” said Xzibit. “I’m looking forward to bringing on some of my closest friends and experts to discuss how cannabis has shaped their lives, reflect on the industry’s progress, and enjoy some good laughs along the way.”
“Many are quick to dismiss the use of cannabis in everyday life, but I have dedicated my career to exploring this fascinating plant, and am here to show through an informed lens just how much of an asset it can be,” added Tammy, the Cannabis Cutie. “Hosting the Lasagna Ganja podcast is another way I can educate audiences on its social and adult-use advantages, as well as explore how it can be a catalyst for entrepreneurship.”
