Respect My Region (RMR) is on a quest to educate the world on every aspect of the cannabis industry and surrounding culture. Our North American Weed Tour (NAWT) will be showcasing 100s of people involved in the industry. Through product reviews, podcasts, and educational video series, we want to showcase what the community has to offer.
There would be no cannabis industry to discuss, however, if we didn’t have people dedicated to digging around in the soil and caring for the plants in order to produce what we all love to consume. As part of our NAWT, we have introduced 17 new video series and podcasts to help us in our quest. One of those shows being the Grow & Tell podcast, an educational series focusing on genetics, cultivation, and cannabis science.
About the Host, Erin Lapsansky
With a masters in horticulture studying microbiology and rhizosphere biology, Erin Lapsansky is the perfect person to host this podcast. Each episode features interviews with high-level individuals from around the world about the topics previously mentioned. She shares her knowledge from years of studying at Colorado State University. As well as her four years of experience managing the grow operations for a tier-2 producer and processor in Washington state. Her years of researching plant life and physically tending to cannabis plants, translates into a fascinating conversation with guests who are equally as knowledgeable.
On top of the science, Erin currently manages Trippy Hippie Cannabis, a retailer in Bellingham, WA. This gives her insight into how cultivation methods effect the consumption experience for the customer. Finally, in a culmination of all of her experiences, Erin started Insight Cannabis Consulting. Through her company she is able to spread the knowledge she has gained and help keep pushing the industry further.
