Episode 53: Sustainable Cannabis at Burnwell Farms
Legalization has ramped up cannabis cultivation in the US, leaving many growers wondering how they can remain competitive in the market while also employing responsible farming practices. Justin Tacy and Brandon Woodland of Burnwell join the show this week to share some of the techniques and tactics they’ve developed to keep their work sustainable.
We’ll talk about what sustainability efforts in the cannabis industry look like right now, what growers can do to ensure they’re being environmentally friendly, and the unexpected troubles that can sometimes arise from using sustainable solutions like cork lids for cannabis packaging. We’ll also learn how retailers and consumers can help support sustainable farming efforts and make sure environmentally responsible cultivators can make it to dispensary shelves.
And don’t worry—we didn’t let anyone out of the studio before they shared what they’re been smoking. Them’s the rules!
