We bring up that 5 letter word that we’ve all learned to adjust to as much as we can in the last two years… COVID. It definitely impacted everyone including the cannabis industry, however, we have deemed an “essential business” in most places which were kind of groundbreaking for me at least. So we talk more about how COVID has impacted our industry, and what Dan has been seeing in how it’s changed how the cannabis business is marketing their products and getting customers in the door. So as we’re mostly vaccinated and the hospitals are moving in the right direction as far as cases go, in-person events are returning, maybe we’re over the big scary hump here. But we dive into what can we expect in the future as long-term or even permanent changes because of what we’ve been through. As well as what should we be thinking about as an industry as we move forward.
