5/1/2019

I sent a lame DM to liiv Cannabis about collaborating way back before federal legalization and just got a response two weeks ago inviting me out to film at their facility in Niagara. A lesson in shooting your shot! I got an extensive tour of their perpetual harvest facility, a lengthy interview with VP of Cultivation, Brady Green, and a sneak peek at one of their upcoming strains called "Citredelic."

4/25/2019
More
I first met the Vancouver rap duo known as So Loki on Twitter back in 2017. After watching their music video for "Liquid Luck," I immediately knew I needed to meet them and work with them. It's been over a year since we first connected and Sam and Geoff have made huge strides - new projects, tours, clothing collaborations and more. It only made sense to get them on the show when they told me they had a couple days off in Toronto.
