About this Episode

This week Steve from Fairwinds joins the guys and they also have a special guest from Yakima who joins the conversation: Jeff’s Mom! Fairwinds is a cannabis grower whose focus is based on wellness. They work closely with their scientists to develop new products using traditional herbal formulas that have an established history of effectiveness. Based on ancient traditions like Indian herbology (Ayurveda) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture), they use principles like Air/Fire/Water and Yin/Yang to help define the properties of cannabis, allowing them to properly blend it with other herbs to achieve a variety of synergistic effects.

1:32 – Cohost Billy introduces his friend Steve, Steve tells the guys about what Fairwinds business focus is, and talks about the products he brought in for the guys to sample.
