Any words of wisdom to those looking to get into the Cannabis Industry?
My words of wisdom to anyone getting into the industry is KEEP AN OPEN MIND to the social, legislative and commercial impacts of cannabis. The best part is that there's still a great deal of room left for development. So being open to all the progressive changes in the industry is truly invaluable. We are alive at such an amazing time for cannabis and all the opportunities it has to offer!
