Join co-hosts Mark McNease and Rick Rose as we strap back into the hotseat after a few weeks off. We chat about the House Speaker Follies, Rick's upcoming trip to Belize, and enjoy an interview with Rob Pero, Found of Canndigenous, a Native-owned CBD company dedicated to helping the indigenous community it supports.
Rob Pero is a serial entrepreneur, savvy marketer, and proud member of the Bad River Tribe. Like preceding generations of Ojibwe people, his core values are rooted in love for family, support for community, respect for the natural world, and a commitment to doing everything, as the Ojibwe say, ‘in a good way’.
With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, the ability to grow hemp (for the purpose of extracting Cannabidiol, or CBD) presented itself. In the sky-rocketing CBD industry, Rob saw both an opportunity to capitalize on a market void, and a tool to use for the betterment of his Indigenous brothers and sisters.
