The Business of Cannabis team traveled to Vancouver in advance of a Canadian cannabis industry event in January 2020. Along the way, the team stopped into the Village Bloomery, a long-time cannabis shop in Vancouver. This podcast features Village Bloomery co-founder Jeremy Jacob, who also serves as the President of the Association of Canadian Cannabis Retailers - and industry advocacy group.
Having made the transition from the legacy market to the newly regulated market, Village Bloomery in Vancouver, BC is a retail cannabis shop with a deep history. That history has allowed the co-founders, Jeremy Jacob and Andrea Dobbs, to continue to serve a diverse and loyal audience, but also have a unique perspective on what is good, and very challenging, about the current industry. In this conversation, Jeremy Jacob shares some of this perspective - both from his role at the Village Bloomery, but also as the President of the Association of Canadian Cannabis Retailers.
