The Rootd Podcast

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to be sure to mention an awesome podcast project that we’re happy to sponsor as a company (we don’t produce it or book the guests). ‘The Root’d Podcast’ is an entrepreneurship themed cannabis industry podcast that interviews some of the brightest minds in the cannabis business world today.

The goal of the show is to present the listener with profiles of successful cannabis industry companies and how they got to where they are. There is some great industry-specific entrepreneurial advice and each show is only 30-minutes, so it’s not too short that you’re always changing it and it’s not too long to where you can’t get through an episode.

It’s also a great tool for cultivators as the host constantly interviews ancillary companies who are creating products for cannabis cultivators or consumers.

Check it out, download, or subscribe on SoundCloud or iTunes.


Example: Episode 39 of the rootd podcast welcomes our first return guest to the program, Karson Humiston, Founder and President of Vangst.

Vangst is the leading talent agency in the cannabis industry, consistently linking qualified candidates to job openings in the cannabis industry.

At 24 years of age, Karson already has years of experience leading her company and has quickly become one of the rising stars of the cannabis industry.

Throughout this episode, Karson and host Tim Strombel discuss hiring practices, the process employers and applicants can expect when working with Vangst, and the impact their services have had in the industry.
