Welcome back wn S T tested Baltimore and Baltimore positive celebrate 25 years The countdown has begun on May 23, that 20 through 21 I swear I’m back on the horse here on that the Orioles have been eliminated even though I’m wearing a pretty cool shirt. Our friends at curio wellness and a father and daughter have provided the sponsorship for the 25th anniversary and I’m trying to make everybody proud with our community service and our countdowns and our memories of the bar and all the cool stuff. Time will not dim the glory of your deeds and making us happier for 25 years. As we get into football season. Luke is at an Owings Mills, the ravens are playing pretty well right now the orals are done. And we take a little break from time to time to talk about things and educate ourselves especially in the cannabis space and and really the wellness space. Last week, we talked about the running festival and balms and creams and different things that may have been illicit years ago now readily available for adult use, as well as medicinal through our friends who carry a wellness and foreign daughter and went abroad fine is back on the program our defending champion for all things, education, about cannabis, but more than say, you know, some weeks we’re talking about flour, or vapes or creams, rubs, pains, aches, and then other weeks I think to myself like, this is still such a new industry. And I wanted to talk to you this week a little bit about like, when I drive by, and I’d see people in there all the time. I’m thinking like, this is something I saw in Colorado years ago. And I think in sort of the modern, it’s come here now. And I also wonder like, what’s gonna be the next thing that happens? So it’s good to have you on our things.
Wendy Bronfein 01:41
Things are good. Yeah, Bennett good away. Good to see you again.
Nestor Aparicio 01:45
I need a purple shirt. I mean, it’s fine.
Wendy Bronfein 01:47
Right? Well, I met when I see you in person, I’m gonna give give you one, we have the the uniform, the jersey style shirt, which you can also buy off of our website on the merch site.
Nestor Aparicio 02:00
Right? I didn’t see the I’m a blunt person.
Wendy Bronfein 02:02
They sell out when you were there.
Nestor Aparicio 02:05
Yeah, I gotta get one of my sites through I’m not sure if I’m a medium or large. I’m kind of working into both of those things at this point, trying to figure it all out. For me, you know, the questions I had this week, just more like b2b and just more like the the business. I try to understand it when I come in, you know more than anything else to say, this is a brand new business to many people’s eyes. It’s so new that we’re doing educational series just to explain to people, ways that can be helpful to them for their wellness. And it’s certainly been helpful for me. So I’m an advocate. But then I think to myself, how far does this go? And how quickly did it happen? And you and your family have been in from the beginning. And when I I talk to you about this stuff. I always say you know more about this than almost anyone because your your family started pretty early on and educating yourselves about where the business is going to go? Or are you just quite frankly shocked or surprised that it’s gotten to where it is at this point. And I guess I wouldn’t have predicted this 10 years ago, and I’m 55 years old. And I think a lot of people my age just are still a little bit three months into adult you saying this is kind of amazing. You came here, right? And I I really do think it’s amazing to some degree.
Wendy Bronfein 03:20
I think when you’re in it, it’s we kind of often say that it’s like it’s like cannabis years are kind of like dog years. So I think that because we live in a world of a federal state conflict, like cannabis is set as a schedule one substance, but then states have legal programs. And so that creates like a push and pull. So when I went when we started this journey, and I went to a conference to educate us and kind of report back to our group. Back in 2014, there was a conversation about where they thought the US government would move on this and the timeline and how many states had to create legal programs for that happen. And so I think many people in history, and definitely many, many investors in the industry, I think, thought that some of the conflicts that we have on the federal level would have been resolved at this point. And that continues to kind of be a massive thorn in the side of the industry. And so I can’t
Nestor Aparicio 04:19
pull the credit card out. Right, like I mean, you can’t you can’t Cuba’s the only place I’ve been that I think I’ve been right my credit card didn’t like literally just I couldn’t pull it out. And I was I wasn’t trying to do at one point. So but I’m thinking like, Where else can I go and there are some places in South Philly to get sauce, you got to pay cash. I’ve been in some smaller businesses, but there’s just very few places where the just the finances alone or it just has to be incredibly challenging on your side. And now we think expensive and opportunity, just all of the business side of that challenge that a lot of places don’t have.
Wendy Bronfein 04:58
Yes, the challenge is there. There are a lot of challenges in the operation side. So the biggest things are the financial elements of the business. So, Maryland is a special state where we have two different banks shore, united and CFG bank who both actively work with Vend licensees in the industry and comply with federal requirements to do so. But that’s not the norm across the country. So So traditional banking isn’t a major problem. That’s why you may have heard of something called safe for the now the SAFER Act in Congress that would help remediate that, you cannot use a credit card, because those transfer on rails that are federally controlled. And there’s something called 280 E, which is an element of the tax code that because of our schedule, and status, it was created years ago, to deal with cartels. But essentially, we cannot write off ordinary expenses as most businesses do. So cannabis companies pay millions of dollars in taxes to the federal government, and the less your state has waived that to your state government as well. So where there are traditional, our tax rate is not aligned with a traditional corporate tax rate, it can be 7080 90% tax rate on that business. So that those are major issues from a financial standpoint. And then some of the other kind of pain points can be in, you know, who will work with you now, as this industry in Maryland has existed for six years now. I think that has helped soften it, as well as the strength of your operation and the credibility of it can get you opportunities to work with different vendors and partners who say, Well, yes, I’m willing, I’ve assessed you, and I’m willing to work with you. But oftentimes, when you’re dealing with other large companies who might provide a service or a product to you, you know, their legal teams basically hit your you’re trafficking in a set schedule one, even though you are in your state program that is legal, we don’t want to deal with it, right. So you know, you’re a little bit of an outsider, just to kind of go through the grind of your business day by day. It makes it a really tough business to build and run. But as we’ve talked about, on the other side, when you have people come into stores with therapeutic needs, and something is resolved or remedied or helped, or treated, whatever it does for them, and you hear those stories, it’s like it kind of makes all of the crazy worth of worth it. Well, there
Nestor Aparicio 07:30
goes your proof. right that there is there is medicine here there is a lot of science, your by the way, there’s a word that I’m going to be wearing the mic TV suit here soon, and touring, and I will get to that in a couple minutes. But you said something that just struck me. Credibility, right? We’re talking about something here that the federal government outlawed schedule one, you know, we’re going back to Nixon in my childhood and the hippy days. But before that, a reefer madness and what my parents believe being born in 1919, you know about about the plant itself? And I think you said credibility and credibility, how do you gain credibility? Six years ago, 10 years ago, 12 years ago, because I think places started popping up. And I saw this when I was in Colorado, I was out in Washington, when I did the baseball tour I saw places are popping up. And then worse than that, I’ve walked the streets of New York in recent years, and people are just coming up offering wide open on the street everywhere in Manhattan, after the plague not so bad a couple of weeks ago, went up there for a day, didn’t feel it in that way felt like there must have been some sort of crack. But like, we’re I’ve seen sort of a wild wild west of all of it, but also the structure of what it needs to be in the same way. And I this is I guess, my comparison, I remembered I was a kid, all the videotape stores popped up everywhere in you’re like, well, they can’t be everywhere. You know, at some point, there’ll be a blockbuster. And there’ll be other places. And I think about that as well, like with sports wagering, and I talked to John Martin all the time about, you know, everybody’s gonna have a license, but how many are really going to be able to sustain that, and I know you and your family took a real forward approach on this. And I would think there’s other places that funding what all of these elements that work against you, but having the faith, but more than that the credibility to still be around. But how do you gain that in the beginning, I think from anyone because I’m sure a lot of people in your social circle, your business circle that just looked and said, No, I mean, 10 years ago, just no. And now they’re more like, oh, it’s like, sort of, I guess when people call it on to the Beatles, or Elvis or something. Yeah,
Wendy Bronfein 09:45
well, I think it a lot of it is doing what you say you’re gonna do, right? So like, as a regulated business. We’ve fully lived up to the application that we submitted, like seven, eight years ago, whatever it was, and, you know, in turn terms of how we would build our facility, how we would run it, what we would make what our intention would be. I think even now, when you Trent, when you’re looking at that transition from medical to adult use that authenticity of who we are remains right that in this industry, often that can be, you know, a medical opportunity for some operators can be the LeapFrog to adult use. Right. And you should, you’re sort of playing that game to get to the adult use part of the program. But I think we’ve authentically maintained that across the transition. I think the fact that when we looked at this industry in the beginning, we had gone to places like Colorado, right? And when you went to a dispensary, you would see something and it would be out of stock. And then you’d ask them, Well, are you getting more of that? Or what’s the story and they’d be like, I don’t know, I don’t have it. I don’t know when I’m getting it, right. So if coming from businesses that had more traditional distribution and retail, you just a customer, whether they’re your b2b or b2c customer needs to rely on the fact that your product is going to be available. And if we were making something that was going to help people with a problem or a symptom or condition that they had, we needed to be reliable that it was going to be the same every time it was going to be equally effective every time it was always going to be in the store. So we built the business relative to the scale that we could deliver for the dispensaries all the time. And that we could create products that would be repeatable. And there wouldn’t be this question between like, well, last time it did this or this, it smells different. It tastes different, it looks different, like, you know, it’s just you go I mean, I’m always like referring to Heinz ketchup, like you go to the grocery store, and you buy Heinz, like, it always looks the same. It’s the right color red, the package is the same, and it’s always there. Like, it’s just, you need that reliability. And that grades the credibility?
Nestor Aparicio 11:45
Well, I think the part of it being a plant, especially in the early going to all of the issues of the federal government and all these things to say, it’s more like a tomato an heirloom, you can only grow it in the summer, or a peach or there’s a season for watermelons or whatever. It couldn’t be like it’s it couldn’t be seasonal like that. I have that issue with crabs. You can’t crab in the winter, right?
Wendy Bronfein 12:08
Yeah, so the so the, the sorry, I just got the product. Yeah, so the growing you’ll see this when when you come but the the consistency of the grow is an entirely kind of different conversation in and of itself. And you’re right, it is a plant. And so if you can build an environment to grow, where you can control that consistency, then you are able to really ensure that that crop is the same harvest over harvest. And so the one of the ways that we know that is because all of our products are tested, right. And so when we harvest a strain, you know, if we harvest a strain in February, and we harvest again, in that summer, the lab results that we get for that strain in the potency of the cannabinoids and the terpenes, you know, are nearly the same. It is such a small margin of you know, was it was it 32% In February and 32.7 in, you know, July or something. But there’s just such consistency in the genetics, that like when you buy it every time you see it, you know, same effect, same smell, same taste, and same terpene and cannabinoid profiles.
Nestor Aparicio 13:20
I guess the unsophisticated part of me 10 years ago, that if someone would have come to me, and if I had money laying around us, yeah, I’m going to go into that industry. And not just to have a storefront. But the full end, let’s grow science, all of that. The initial part would be like, Oh, it’s gonna come in a flower like it did in Amsterdam 20 years ago, and it’s going to be smoked. And it’s just going to, it’s going to come in bags, it’s going to be weighed, it’s going to be by the ounce, whatever it was on the black market for the beginning of time. And that would be it. And then when I got to Colorado, especially my wife had cancer 10 years ago, right at that point, we went out there in the middle of baseball, torn 15, Chip cancer 14, and saw not just candy bars, or brownies or cookies, but starting to see all sorts of concentrates of different ways, and bombs and things that could really be helpful. And beyond Sanjay Gupta on CNN and watching that things that are available on the internet to educate ourselves. But the part of it that I never, I guess understood was how laboratory and science and you having products that are very, very directed and delicious, and safe and and tested and all of these things that whatever was going on in New York last summer was not in any way, especially with fentanyl and the concerns we would have that the safety and the product. But this is not at all what I would have thought as a 40 year old business owner for 20 years with a radio station that I would have thought 15 years ago that it would would be this I thought it was you know my unsophisticated mind was always a flower in a vase or in a jar in a container. And that would be the whole extent of the plant. And I think scratching the surface of that begins to open my mind of like, where is all of this going? And how quickly did it get here? Because to your point for you, it started 10 years ago.
Wendy Bronfein 15:18
Yeah. And our focus is in a lot of kind of normalizing the conversation. So when you walk into the store, and you, you say, you have X, Y, or Z issue or problem, you’re trying to solve that, rather than having being being reliant on sort of this generic space of flour, vape, or five, or 10, or whatever milligrams of this, that the product is much more targeted. And you could you say the problem, we say the answer. And so we’ve done that with sleep, we’ve done it with daytime needs of anxiety or focus, we’ve done that with pain and inflammation, we’ve done it with GI stuff, we’re working on some things that are all around women’s health related. In the GI space, we’re going into a formal trial with a gastroenterology practice to really validate this product, just like we did with our sleep products. So that, you know, the other issue in our space is is people say things work. And they do but everything is anecdotal, because we the other constraint we have is the research constraint. And that goes back to the schedule one thing. So what we’ve tried to do is partnering with the state in the sense that we’ve had laws passed that expand our ability to do more formal research and partner with academic institutions and, and medical practices that have been drafted into law here. But really normalize as much as we can in getting that validated experience under some sort of trial inside of being the schedule one from a federal standpoint, and then be able to say yes, but we looked when people tried it, it was blinded in some way we did everything we could to really validate that this product can do what you want it to do. And I think again, that’s just another layer of the credibility conversation.
Nestor Aparicio 17:06
Well, yeah, I mean, it comes from a background of you know, what snake oil could be sold on late night TV 30 or 40 years ago for anything right? To say that University of Maryland local institutions are at Teach Your point validating it. So when you say like asleep product. You know, I guess from the beginning of Anton mankind, people have had insomnia. And I’ve been fighting that. And there’s all sorts of products that you’d see in a magazine and mail order away or whatnot. When you say validate, tell me a little bit about that. Because I think that’s fascinating. You clearly the, the more validation and the more people that come into your store, in sort of the new part of this, that it actually works. And I know we talked about Ambien talked about things that make you dopey, like literally. And that’s what you’re, that’s exactly what you’re scientifically trying to stay away from is stuff that does make you feel like I went to the quote unquote, drugstore and picked up cough syrup, and it made me not be able to work function in a way that we all want to be functional.
Wendy Bronfein 18:11
So with art with the product, good night, that’s that’s the sleep product. And it uses a pulse technology. So you take it 30 minutes before bed, it doses immediately. And then it doses again three hours later. So what we did was we partnered with a company called sleep score, who has a device that monitors your sleep and bedside device. And so there, this was during the time that we were medical only. So a series of medical patients were enrolled in the study. They were given this device, they had the product to trial, and they and then with an app that spoke to a research app that spoke to the device, it would pick up your sleeping habits and monitor it. And this was all done outside of us. So there was an independent investigator and this contract research organization, and they can do, all that we did was produce the product and the patients picked it up from our store. And we’re given the instructions and then they conducted the study and then we were given the report back on how how the product function. And so the the product, the research overall validated the product. We saw people that an increase in their sleep, but they specifically had there are different parts of your sleep like people probably know the term RAM and things like that. So there was a direct impact to a restorative state of sleep, which was very meaningful. But we also had that’s like when I
Nestor Aparicio 19:33
go to pee in the middle of the night how quickly I go back to sleep, right?
Wendy Bronfein 19:37
Well, no, this would be like in terms of like if you’re if your sleep is almost like when you’re you plug your phone in and it reboots and restarts it like what how much part how much of that sleep was actually restorative and really unhealthy to your body in it kind of rebooting for the next day versus just like I wasn’t conscious for so many hours. And they’re also people had no they’d kind of things that you just referenced, like, I issues with, I get up to go to the bathroom and I can’t go back to sleep, or I end up taking naps during the day or I don’t feel rested. And so in these other points that people were surveyed on, they were taking less naps, they were feeling more rested. And if people did wake up, they didn’t. They didn’t it did not impact them, or did they did not have as much of a recollection like, Oh, right. I did go to the bathroom last night, right. But it wasn’t like I got up to go to the bathroom. And then that was it. I was, I was, you know, messed up on my sleep for the rest of the night. So it was those results validated us statistically, that the product was viable. And thus we then commercialized it.
Nestor Aparicio 20:40
When the brand finds here we get educated about the All Things cannabis and curio wellness and our friends to foreign daughter around the corner, please visit them. And you know what, if you are looking to be educated as I have been, and my wife certainly was 10 years ago, when she was battling the aftermath of leukemia, we’ve tried to educate ourselves, and I’m very appreciative of the partnership. But with curio and our 25th anniversary, all that’s out of Baltimore positive sharing some great memories. This week, it’s a community charity work we’ve done as well as our long standing barn series, there’ll be lots of pictures coming out sort of like Halloween with the Amiga and Tony Sarah gooses lapper him holding a knife to my throat, it’s a long story and a birthday cake. It was it was 25 years ago, it’s all waiting for you with talking about the science of a good night product and a study and the time, which which the time lapse or press release. So it’s I guess, like eight hour relief when you had a cold medicine or whatever. Did you know all of this 10 years ago from your dad and from you being your family really being in the pharmacy business? Did you know it was coming to tablet form very directed that he could come? It could completely replace a lot of the really dangerous stuff that quite frankly, a lot of pharmacies have dispensed? You know, in years? Did you know that it was going to be this science related and that there would be a thing called a gummy with a terpene? Or is that is that been information that’s come to you in the last 10 years.
Wendy Bronfein 22:17
So in just like literally like this week of 2016 was the first meeting of our Scientific Advisory Board. And that’s when these those types of conversations started for us. There were the ideas around we wanted to create targeted therapies with cannabis right, we’re cannabis is our active ingredient. But what the chairman of our Scientific Advisory Board holds. He’s a pharmacologist and he holds patents in pulse technology right so he brings that expertise to this group wow
Nestor Aparicio 22:54
that’s a whole book onto itself right yeah and all signal and
Wendy Bronfein 22:57
and that good night product has now earned two US patents for that product based on what we’ve done. But the I think that what people people are very familiar with flour with vape with a gummy type product. When when we do things in a tablet form with like the good night and are good day and our GI products, we we that’s where we really can hone in on what you know some of this quote magic, right? Because the you can make the pill do things like release inside of certain parts of your body, right? The GI product is been shown to be effective because it’s not releasing until it gets deep into your gut. Or, and it has a multi pulse and it just like the good data is right when the good night which gives you more of what you’re referring to is that sustain, right? It’s giving you a dose at one point and then it’s giving you a dose later. So you can’t necessarily do those things with other forms. Inhalation is an immediate release, but it can be useful when people want something we call it like a rescue product, right? So if you have you know, if nausea comes over you using a vape it’s going to be very quick right? If you if you swallow something you’re gonna have to wait to metabolize that and for it to take effect. So there’s there’s purpose for different types of dosage forms. But I think that we did always have our eye towards like how can we use some of the mastery of effectiveness that exists in a traditional pharma world and bring it over to cannabis so that the product can be targeted and the product can be effective in a very specific way?
Nestor Aparicio 24:36
Well, you only get one chance in life to be a first mover when you take first move so to your family it’s everything you guys are doing and creating products are helping folks so I’m coming to your to grow I would say you tell me what your laboratory because you literally have threatened and I’ve been threatened for years to be put into the mic TV outfit you’re going to be me Um, hey Mom, look at me. I’m going to be in the white suit. In two minutes explain because next week, I’m going to, like really ask you about what I’m going to see. Because I because I know you could take me because it’s, I’m going to be there half a day, I’m going to see a lot. So even summing that up in 20, or 30 minutes is going to be hard, but in two minutes, enlighten my audience and anyone out there as to what happens when I show up. Listen, I’ve been to the White House a couple times I’ve been playing, you know, I I’ve been behind the rope. I I even went, here’s a little off the off the radar for you. I went to the star in Frisco, Texas, a couple of weeks ago, Jerry Jones’s Kingdom where his team practices and it’s, it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen. So I’ve seen some unique things. This is this is going to be unique for me. So I’m really looking forward to it’s sort of like Epcot for me, I think.
Wendy Bronfein 25:53
Yeah, so Well, you’re right, with the reference to Mike TV, you are gonna suit off in a white Tyvek, suit, hair net beard net, booties on your feet, all that stuff, no extra things, jewelry, anything coming in. So we run under a GMP protocols. So you’ll present good manufacturing practices, so that that’s a third party accreditation that we have, that’s consistent with products that are validated by the FDA, right. So again, like places that this industry doesn’t exist, but where we are aligned to because it’s where we believe we’ll get in the future and where we want to get right when we are federally legal. So we’re sort of built for it today. But it all it means that the way that we produce our products, our supply chain, our training, our standard operating procedures, all of the elements of our operations are to a standard that meets the levels of the FDA. So you’re going to suit up, you’re going to come through we’re going to do you’re going to suit up for cultivation and suit up for manufacturing or processing is that license is called. So you’ll see in the cultivation space, that’s everywhere that we grow the plants, from little tiny babies through to the harvest and packaging.
Nestor Aparicio 27:16
And then traditional greenhouses. I know it or No, no,
Wendy Bronfein 27:19
it’s not a greenhouse. It’s indoor. So it’s in inside of a building.
Nestor Aparicio 27:23
Okay, okay. See, glass understood. Okay. Yeah, yeah.
Wendy Bronfein 27:29
Nestor Aparicio 27:30
been to many nurseries and whatnot. And it always has sort of that human and, and I’m always amazed when I go to those places that that how much love it takes to keep any plant alive. My wife’s killed a bunch we all have the theory on I mean, it’s, uh, but I mean, just even in, in a controlled environment, it’s, it’s plant it needs it needs all the things plants need, right?
Wendy Bronfein 27:52
Yeah. And on the cultivation staff, you know, that a lot of people love the outdoors, because, you know, they get to play Mother Nature, right? You’re controlling all the variables, the light, the temperature, the humidity, the co2, all the things that the plant needs, you are directing and kind of the ideal scenario. So that’s
Nestor Aparicio 28:12
why you can’t have me enter where am I Led Zeppelin belt buckle and just screwing around I need to because it’s, I always think about like when they tell you you get off the plane somewhere, don’t bring fruit in don’t write things in just anything like that can destroy anything crop.
Wendy Bronfein 28:30
Yeah. And then in the manufacturing side, you’re gonna see a variety of spaces that are dedicated to producing specific products, right, so topicals in one room tablets in another choose and a third, we have an analytical lab on site, where we do the extraction. So the extraction is we take the cannabis and we extract the oil from it, that oil is what gets infused into any finished goods that you purchase if you buy a chew, or a tablet or a topical and elixir all those products have the oil is how they get the cannabinoids inside. And all the same oil, right? All the same. Yeah. So all of our flour, we sell the flour from our cultivation business to our manufacturing business. And then they extract the oil from that flower.
Nestor Aparicio 29:16
Wendy brown fine. I’m I’m just scratching the surface. I mean, I had scratching sniff lottery tickets here this week and from our friends at the Maryland lottery and I so I’m always learning about all of this. But you know, I did the ice cream tour at the factory at the Weis markets. And I had to put a whole suit you know, like so I’m ready to suit up. I put my hair back. I got a lot of hair now, but I’ll put it back. And I am I’m going to be blown away. Right? I mean, I’m literally just from a science standpoint, my sort of weirdly inquisitive journalistic mind I’m going to be blown away, right?
Wendy Bronfein 29:47
Yes, I mean, I think you know, I’m a little bit numb to it because I’ve been there a number of times but when I open any given door and you see all the plants inside of a room and then I tell you how many rooms there are like that, that usually kind of blows people’s mind. And I think one of the other things is that, you know, the, the aroma of cannabis comes through at the end of the process, right as the plant matures, the terpenes are developing on those buds and that’s what you smell. And so for a lot of the spaces when the plant is younger in its lifecycle, it just this kind of smells like a lawn and garden center, right? Like it’s just, they’re just plants growing, they have no real aroma to them that you would associate with cannabis. But as the plant gets to full maturity, harvested and through that process, that’s when you smell cannabis type smells and you can even depending on what has been harvested, you know, it kind of gets almost into that kind of like bougie wine place where you’re like, I smell like citrus notes or this set right because depending on the terpenes that are the most present that’s what’s drawing the aromas out.
Nestor Aparicio 30:54
All right, well, the education has begun exactly the way we said it would cure your wellness is here and our friends are foreign daughter if you drive by Tony also locations ay ay oh, please plug Cecil County because I have a great casino I work with
