EP. 34 | The Maine Man: Living Soil, Biomimicry, & Avocados with Blu the Botanist
Feb 14 • 61 Mins.
This week we're talking with organic growing pioneer Blu the Botanist, co-owner of the Meristem dispensary on Maine's Mt. Desert Island, to learn more about how Maine-grown has become synonymous with exceptional craft cannabis. After exploring the history, culture, and program structure that gave rise to this region's reputation, we'll learn the inspiration behind Blu's avocado technique, aka Fruit Drop Theory, replicating the outdoor environment when growing indoors using biomimicry techniques, and how new growers can incorporate organic gardening methods. Plus! The Gentleman expounds on the recent ruling that prohibiting MMJ patients from firearms is unconstitutional, dives deep into the Americans for Safe Access report card for every state's MMJ program, and explains the fall of a key domino in the pursuit of interstate commerce efforts– and why that's a battle for the very soul of the cannabis industry.
