Welcome to the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast where a group of coworkers talks about what it's like to work in the legal California cannabis industry. Hear from delivery drivers, dispatchers, marketers, buyers, vendors, distributors, growers, consumers, and more as we open the veil of the cannabis industry and help educate people so they no longer fear the plant.

By listening you’ll gain an insiders perspective on the growth and development of the industry as it climbs out of the wild west and into a fully regulated market.

This podcast was created to help educate people who are otherwise unfamiliar with the plant.

Welcome to episode 007 of the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast, where it is our goal to educate consumers while removing the fear out of marijuana. The show is run by Nice Guys Delivery employees who interview other industry peers to lift the veil of the legal California cannabis industry.In this episode, we talk to Heather who is an Account Manager for Bloom Farms. She is one of the first vendors Nice Guys Delivery ever worked with when we first opened our doors in 2016, and she is a great example of a professional in the space. We talk about how cannabis is changing the landscape and giving a lot of people opportunities and jobs. The industry offers upward mobility for anyone willing to work.A quote from Heather: "You have to be passionate about cannabis to really do this." Bloom Farms is a staple in the California cannabis market. One of the reasons we like them so much is because of their desire to be nice and give back to the communities they're serving. They formed a 1-for-1 program that already donated over 1.6 million meals by partnering with 9 local food banks across the state. Thanks for listening. We appreciate your feedback!

She is the Director of Economic Development and Innovation and because of her efforts, Nice Guys Delivery and others are able to legally sell cannabis in San Rafael and Marin County.In this episode, we talk to Danielle about San Rafael's Cannabis Program and how its been going since it was created. We talk about different ways cannabis is bringing positive change to the community and also a little bit about her background. This is a unique conversation with someone from outside the industry.Thank you for listening to the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast. Please rate the show and leave a review.We appreciate you! Our talk is based around these questions:You are helping write and guide policies for a community trying to embrace cannabis. How did you come to this position and what is the career history that led you here?The majority of Marin voted for legalization and each community across California is embracing prop 64 in their own way. Marin has eased its way forward regarding policies. What's the next progression? Have licensed cannabis businesses been good operators in San Rafael? How are we doing?What is the biggest concern from the city's point of view? What are some mistakes you've seen other communities make?Where is the tax revenue being applied?Aside from Tax revenue, what do you and the city hope to see from us as licensed businesses? Have you seen an increase in crime since San Rafael began allowing legal cannabis sales? Additional Notes and Resources:"On March 4, 2019, San Rafael City Council approved amending our current medical cannabis policy to allow existing licensees the ability to serve the adult-use market. This recent action does not permit new retail storefront licensing activity. The list of approved license types and allotments are shown below:"Cannabis License AllotmentsCannabis Testing Labs (State License Type 8): 4 licenses Infused Product Manufacturing MIPs (State License Type N): 8 licenses Non-storefront Delivery (State License Type 9): 5 licenses Distribution (State License Type 11): 3 licenses Learn more about "The City With A Mission" - San RafaelFind Nice Guys Online:Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | LinkedinMusic created by Artist: Joifulnoiz

They make pain relief accessible, affordable and discreet while striving to make each member experience as unique as they are. Dan, Colleen, and Ashley have a conversation in Sacramento after a recent Flow kana industry party where they got to meet some of the farmers, a glass blower, and other industry members. They couldn't find anywhere quiet to talk so they have this conversation from the inside of a car. The discussion is centered around Ashley as she talks about Winter Greens and the experience she's had since they first opened on Jan. 28th, 2019. They are North Lake Tahoe and Truckee's 1st and ONLY licensed cannabis delivery service. When asked about some of the challenges she mentions the weather conditions as the drivers attempt to deliver weed in the middle of a snowstorm. I can imagine it being extra tricky trying to deliver cannabis in the middle of a blizzard - props to the winter greens delivery drivers.
