Hall of Flowers – Santa Rosa CA – May 1, 2019

Ozzie:

All right, we are back at Hall of Flowers 2019 in Santa Rosa, Day 2, Wednesday. We’re super pumped. I’m here with Emily and Micah of Leef Organics and I just want to ask you, first of all, what inspired you to start this company?

Micah:

Let’s see here. I think a lot of the inspiration came, actually, from the food industry. Prior to starting Leef, we had a company called “Paleo Paw,” and I was very intrigued with that, the whole non-GMO movement, organic farming and then bringing those practices into the Cannabis industry. And so, that was where a lot of it came from was just trying to build a brand that had the same ethos as the other organic food lines that we were looking at.

Emily:

I come from beauty, kind of health and wellness space originally. This guy made me really neurotic about really questioning what I’m putting in and on my body and so Leef was born out of that with a passion for all things health and wellness and then just trying to it the right way.

Ozzie:

Awesome, I love it. I mean, we’re big fans of Leef Organics. This soap, if you guys haven’t smelled this soap, it’s like the reason I look forward to getting into the shower. It’s amazing. Okay, I want to ask you, what was your first experience with Cannabis?

Emily:

Oh, god. Mine was one of those awkward encounters in high school where I had no idea what I was doing and certainly after I inhaled, because I did…very, very awkward and kind of climbed into my shell. I probably didn’t do it again for a good decade and then today, it’s like my glass of wine.

Ozzie:

Yeah, especially with kids, right? End of the night?

Emily:

Story time is epic.

Ozzie:

I just look forward to that so much. All right, what about you, Micah?

Micah:

First Cannabis experience? Same thing. I was in middle school I think and smoked with some friends after school. It might have even been during school, I don’t know, I can’t remember.

Ozzie:

Was it good?

Micah:

Probably not.

Ozzie:

The first time is never good. Okay, tell us about the Heady, Space Dust and pre-rolls that are launching.

Emily:

So, Heady was really the answer to the recreational market place, so it is a little more fun if you will next to the Leef line, again more pops of color. Heady really is inspired by all things traditional Cannabis; so, prepackaged flower, pre-rolled, Space Dust is launching here at the show today, we’re super excited.

Ozzie:

For people that don’t know, tell us about that.

Emily:

So that is strain-specific kief and it’s an amazing flower topper. I like to kind of keep it simple, I still love traditional flower, so it’s a great way to enhance the taste, the potency, and the aroma.

Ozzie:

Awesome. Okay, I have one last question for you both. What is your favorite part of Hall of Flowers?

Emily:

It’s just a really well done event, very clean, the air is very pure, a great B to B relationship building.

Ozzie:

Awesome, what about you, Micah?

Micah:

I’d say the same, B to B. It seems like everyone in the room is in the industry so, it’s like you’re always having conversations with other people who are going through the same thing that we’re going through and it’s a good networking event for sure.

Ozzie:

Yeah, I always feel like we can come together and cry a little bit and then go about our journeys, right? All right, so, thank you so much for joining us and we’re going to keep going…!
