On this episode of DIGIchats, I talk shop with Brett Puffenbarger, a Cannabis industry communications and branding professional in Orlando, Florida.
Connect with him on Linked In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/brettpuffenbarger/
and check out his work with The Fresh Toast and Suncoast NORML, too.
In this conversation we cover multiple topics including:
– The Cannabis industry in Florida and the laws and regulations that they have in place.
– The disconnect in states and how the inconsistencies can lead to greater confusion.
He gives great tips and insight when it comes to branding in the industry and great examples that some are doing to help further their reach.
I live with Chemo Induced Peripheral Neuropathy – a condition that causes me to have a great amount of difficulty enjoying quality of life. Thankfully, I have found that I benefit from what CBD does for my body.
In your body, you have an endocannabinoid system.
This system in the body works like many others. It is also understood to be the system of the body that responds to cannabinoids (plant or endo) and the benefits often associated with those in the cannabis family of plants.
Are you curious about hemp? Hemp farming and the industry?
In this episode of DIGIchats, we chat with Cory Henke who is the VP of Business Development and Branding for Hempton Farms.
Hempton Farms is a group of hemp farmers and agribusiness professionals involved in all sorts of areas including seed genetics, farm management, extraction and branding.
CBG stands for Cannabigerol and it is a fantastic little cannabinoid found in the hemp plant.
What can the potential for CBG be? Why is it harder to find CBG products than CBD?

If you’re new to shopping for hemp CBD and CBD-based products, there are a lot of different terms that you find you have to learn. A common set of descriptors used (especially in extracted products like tinctures, topicals and treats) are that of: Spectrum.
I came to know cannabis-based products later in life.
Compared to those other folks that I’ve had the chance to meet in these last few years, I don’t have the same level of personal experience that many of my counterparts often do. For me, it would be thanks to a gnarly bout of breast cancer at 38 years old that I began to even consider the concept of cannabis. Out of necessity, I was able to get over my repeated GEN X childhood stigmas, and prohibition-era rhetoric, and get over them quickly.
I had just begun my social distancing when my package had arrived. No bigger than a loaf of bread, the cardboard treasure chest was simple in its identifiable markings. One of my favorite names to see had come to call – ULTA.
