The show features fearless and informed discussions with pioneers in every area of cannabis today: technology, health, entertainment, medical treatment, food, plant and medical science, research, and culture. “The cannabis renaissance is in full force and it’s powered by the same creative energy as the tech boom of the 1980s,” says Dolce. “Science is leading the way to new advances and products. The image of the spacey stoner is fading away. Seniors are using the plant for healing and relief, and 29 US states and countries including Canada, Israel, Uruguay, Holland, Jamaica allow some legal access to cannabis.
