Introduction to The Cannabis Marketing Podcast - Episode 1
Welcome to episode 1 of The Cannabis Marketing Podcast! This is just a brief teaser episode to introduce the podcast and whet your appetite for what we’re planning!
The Cannabis Marketing Podcast is an interview style podcast where we’ll interview people working in cannabis and CBD to talk about the unique challenges and opportunities they face.
You can expect to hear from CEOs and CMOs of well-known cannabis dispensaries, marketers who are on the ground running CBD digital marketing programs, and from people working “in the trenches” at agencies or onsite to help market their cannabis products or dispensary.
