What Are You Smoking?

Episode 49: Cannabis in the Lab at Avitas

In this episode: 

Why is it hard to get interesting new cannabis strains onto dispensary shelves? What sort of experiments do your favorite extractors conduct to hone their craft? And just how do you pronounce Avitas, anyway?

We’ll talk to Dr. Amber Wise, science director of one of our favorite Northwest cannabis companies, Avitas, and get answers to all of these questions and more. We’ll even get a sneak peek at some of the new products the company is launching soon! At the risk of spoiling things, there’s a distillation setup in play…
