Today we yak about questions like:

Exactly what is a microdose, how is that defined? Isn't it different in every state?

What microdosing cannabis products are most popular? Gummies? Candies? Mints?

What is the target demographic for microdose products? Boomers? Cultural Creatives? Those with edible PTSD?

What is your feedback so far from customers?

If you had to give someone listening today one learning to succeed in the cannabis microdosing segment, what would it be?

Any mistakes our listeners can learn from?

Stay tuned for our next episode of In the Weeds where we'll talk about double bottom line cannabis brands - brands that make a profit and give back to cannabis activism efforts at the same time. Are these partnerships just astroturfing or are they good for business? We chat with Jesce Horton, founder of the Minority Cannabis Business Association about his recent partnership with leading cannabis brand Marley Naturals.
