The State of Craft – Episode 7, featuring Kirk Tousaw


The State of Craft is a webinar series focused on the legal craft cannabis industry.

The rollout of cannabis legalization in Canada has been full of ups and downs. The craft cannabis industry in particular has been immensely affected by a myriad of challenges and missteps in the years following the Cannabis Act and Cannabis Regulations.

In The State of Craft, Sami Majadla, CEO of CertiCraft, facilitates conversations with leaders in the legal craft cannabis industry to explore what is going well and what is going not-so-well. We’ll discuss what can realistically be changed at different levels of government and industry alike to address major issues the craft cannabis sector is facing, and hopefully inspire stimulating ideas of all sorts. Every episode will end with a 15 min live Q&A with our audience.

In Episode 7, Sami will be joined by Kirk Tousaw.

Soul food for cannabis: Nutrient-Dense Living Soils


Increasingly, as the cannabis sector matures from its prohibition past into its medicinal future, the cannabis plant will reclaim it’s genetic robustness and reveal flavours, aromas, and healing properties that will be novel to coming generations. At the same time, growers are recognizing that living soils with diverse microbial populations are the key to unlocking these hidden genetic expressions.
