For Episode 2 of Our AMPLIFY Series (amplifying black voices, stories, and businesses in the cannabis industry) we interviewed Michael Brown the founder of Eternel Hemp. Michael started out as a computer programmer before getting into real estate. He saw an opportunity in vertical farming – and an even bigger opportunity for good in hemp. His goal now is to use the hemp farms they build to employ individuals that were incarcerated for cannabis crimes – to give them a new life, and equity so they don’t end up going back into the system.
AMPLIFY EP1: Last Prisoner Project on Racism Throughout Cannabis History and How to Get Cannabis Prisoners OUT
We were going to take a break in podcasting for the month of June - but after recent events we have decided to use our platform to amplify black voices and share black cannabusinesses. We are kicking off the new season with a Raffle for Last Prisoner Project, and organization dedicated to getting cannabis prisoners out and back into society.
So we interview Sarah Gersten, the executive director of the Last Prisoner Project to dig deep, see where your money goes when you donate, and learn about everything they do. We also go over non-monetary ways to help the cause.

EP 53: Using Plant Medicine to Enhance Spirituality and Overall Health with Harry Sherwood of Conciously
Harry Sherwood, Founder of Consciously, takes us along on his journey through China living with monks and learning Tai Chi, to his time in meditation in an ashram in California. He walks us through the intense experience of an ayahuasca ceremony and what that felt like for him in over 15+ 'sits' with the medicine. He shares the connection of plant medicine, cannabis specifically, and meditation.
This mystical episode explores the depths of the universe while also offering practical advice for enhancing overall health and wellness through plant medicine and meditation.
We are excited to be doing some fun virtual events with Harry as well:
This week Casey Jones sat down with Dan Herrer, son of famed cannabis enthusiast and activist Jack Herer. Dan saw his father's voice growing silent after his passing, and decided to continue his message. Jack once said, “I'm not saying that hemp is going to save the world, but it's the only thing that can” - and his son Dan realized that this message is more important now than ever.
You may have smoked Jack Herer, but it's time to learn why and how he made such a big impact on the industry!
