Welcome home we are wn St. am 1570, Towson, Baltimore and Baltimore positive happy summer. Happy Fourth of July. The Maryland crab cake tour is a little bit of a respite. I mean, get some real crabs next week or whatever we get back after it. When the Orioles take on the Yankees on the 12th of July we’re going to be fade Lee’s we will have because I haven’t fresh the Gold Rush sevens doublers to give away from the Maryland lottery, our friends at Jiffy Lube, multi care also sending us out on the road and liberty pure solutions with our freshwater solutions. We’ll be talking more to Doug from Liberty pure A little later on in the month as well. Fourth of July, holidays, Oreos on the road on next week for part of this and it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve caught up with one of my favorites. I am wearing my curio, Baltimore. You know, even as we speak, they’ve lost a couple of games but I’m still wearing the orange when I was going to break the purple app and I’m a couple of weeks away from that. Wendy brown fun is here. She is the Chief Chief Brand Officer at curio wellness but our chief cannabis Officer here at the Baltimore positive in Ottawa. How’s your summer you’ve taken any Orioles games, but then CFG bank any concerts anything good?

Wendy Bronfein  01:07

I have been to the Orioles game I was there a couple of weeks ago. All right. Yeah, we can get daygame Yeah, it was great. And then No, I’m going to Timberlake on the third. Yeah. He had a bad week. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Yeah. But But it’s funny, somebody reached out to me when that happened and was like, because of what was reported there. And I’m like, well, well, you’ll get a new customer when it comes to,

Nestor J. Aparicio  01:37

you know, maybe it’s takes us in a direction of and I see all of the ads for using cannabis responsibly. Yeah. Anything you want to say on that front? Because I know. Like, I think there’s a campaign about like, smelling it on the street, which is ubiquitous in America and has been for a number of years now. Especially beginning on the west coast in New York during the pandemic, the rules, the social rules now that adult use is there and we’re almost a year into that kind of hard to believe it’s been that fast that short. But just um, what and you you obviously sell it we talk about all sorts of ways to use it. I have. This is never far from me the move, I’ve always reached it literally it’s oh my god, boom, right here. I feel it on my back right now. But they’re still the original, you know, flower, smoking flower on the streets, Fells Point, city red lights. I smell it in various places. And I know there are rules specifically set up in Annapolis about Come on, let’s let’s be responsible and how we use this.

Wendy Bronfein  02:40

Yeah, I mean, of course, the law is that, you know, there isn’t really public consumption if you’re in a private space, and it’s allowed. That’s different. But yeah, I mean, you’re right, you do you have many states that have passed it, you do start to quote, smell it more. But I also don’t know, sometimes it’s like, do you smell it more? Or is it because if you weren’t sort of used to it or using it or anything like that, it’s more notable to you. I mean, I used to live in New York and I, I could smell it all the time, places, like I’d walk down the street and like, look up and be like, Oh, who’s windows open? Where? Where’s it coming from? Right. So, but I would be more inclined to have, you know, paid attention to the aroma.


Nestor J. Aparicio  03:26

But I would also say, you know, for the modern part of this and quite frankly pissing people off even in places like Amsterdam, where it was considered to be not cool, tacky. Don’t do that from kids don’t do that from Yeah, definitely just in a general sense that that is the public part of why we don’t want people walking down the street with open bottles of booze, right? And I had Ron Furman on last week, I was down at Cooper’s problem down there late at night on Saturday nights, not just the fox 45 problem, but just a problem. And I go back to my childhood and in saying to Ron, I remember me and my buddies when we were too young roaming around and open container and the difference between New Orleans and everywhere else. Right and what they don’t want notion city on the boardwalk. And I would say cannabis is you know, along those lines where you don’t want to do this and drive. We want to be responsible about this. You don’t want to harm yourself or harm others, but the social part of it for me is still getting worked out. You know, and I guess amongst people because it’s so new here, and I had a chat this week. I did the crabcake tour at Pappas in Parkfields. The Pappas was there, and we all sat down John paddy from GAO was was on with me for a good hour. We had a good we had a great chat and we were talking about the good old days of cigarette smoke. And the fact that California I went out there and 9798 and it had a sport coat. I went to see the chargers in the ravens and I went to like a bar to meet girl Oh, you know, like, that’s what I did, right? I was 26 or whatever. I’m out there. And at my sport coat, I didn’t have to get a dry clean. The next day, my hair didn’t smell like battery acid. And then I went to New York, New York passed the law. Right around the turn of the century, I was up there. I was syndicated I was when I was doing Sporting News. As you can see the 25th anniversary documentary brought to you by curio, well, I got back from New York at that point, it was the same thing. I went into bars with low ceilings, and didn’t come out smelling that way. And I Steve said to me, because John Patti interviewed him 20 years ago, Pappas, and every bar owner was like, it’s gonna be the end of ours. It’s gonna be the end of business. And, and they, Steve, admit it, the hardest part was telling our customers they had to go outside do it. Like they didn’t want to do it. And now the, from your business, you can’t we don’t want you doing this out in front of pat it out in front of places. And I think it has. There’s been crossed, right.

Wendy Bronfein  05:55

A little Yeah, I mean, there. Yeah. Well, there’s two things. One is when you said that I was thinking yeah, it is really weird to think back to that where it wasn’t until they took it away, that you kind of had such an awareness to how offensive it was, you know, when I got outside and how you

Nestor J. Aparicio  06:10

Vegas walk into a casino in Vegas, and you feel like you’ve walked into 1974

Wendy Bronfein  06:16


Yeah. But I mean, for us, it’s different. Because one, you know, the cigarettes aren’t illegal. We technically they smell worse.

Nestor J. Aparicio  06:25

I’ve smelled them both. I am offended by cigarette smoke, I will not stand in a space where that is I will move along wherever I am worth

Wendy Bronfein  06:35

it, but I wouldn’t move along if there was cannabis.

Nestor J. Aparicio  06:39

Make me move along. But it also in this probably speaks to me having parents who were born in 1919 I do look around and make sure like, you know, don’t run a corner, you know, I mean, gotta be someplace for you to do that, where I won’t know about it. You know, and visa vie if I want to do it, I’m gonna do it in someplace where nobody knows about it. Right? So


Wendy Bronfein  06:59

remember, there’s many ways to consume it where you don’t have to that are much more discreet.

Nestor J. Aparicio  07:04

Let’s talk about that. Because this one I wanted to talk about terpenes today and I want to talk about effect and I wanted to talk and I guess you got me going on the th v thc v a couple of weeks ago and not feeling high effected feeling like functional feeling clear and clarity. And you know, I know people that consume the product that are straight indica they want to be in some way catatonic you know they want to be mind off, they want to be troublefree lighten their load, whatever, take the edge or whatever all that is, they don’t want to feel up they want they want this different feeling i i sleep well, I work well. I’m not a guy that wants to be sedated. You don’t I mean, like or feel sedated. I never liked the cough syrup feeling. I don’t like the coffee feeling either, right? And I don’t. I like the drunk feeling of being loose. But I certainly don’t like the after effects of that. And what that feels like, for somebody that is buying using whatever I think no matter who you are, if you are in the cannabis space, because it’s so new. And this is where it’s interesting to me that I’ve gotten onto your website Acurio wellness, and started reading some of the blogs and different things to say, oh, that, Oh, that want that, oh, that’s what that does. There really is a whole lexicon that you give out little terpene profiles to talk about what’s in this stuff, and what makes it do what it does. And I think if you’re spending, none of your products are inexpensive, right? Some days, there’s some sales and whatnot. But if you’re using the product, you want it to do what you want it to do, and I don’t want to be asleep on the couch eating Cheetos, and you know, in the stereotypical kind of way, but there, there’s so much science involved in this that the more you know, the better consumer and the more refined your palate can become to get exactly what you want. Yeah,

Wendy Bronfein  09:02

I think that’s the most important piece is that like, whether you’re using it in like a social lifestyle way, or you’re using it for some therapeutic purpose, like you can drive towards the thing, you can drive towards the quote solution, because you can if you express what you’re trying to achieve, there is a profile in products or flower or that will get you there and that’s that’s really happening from the terpenes so you know, THC is kind of what gets all the attention and and to a certain extent it’s like you know, consumers just drive against it and assume the more the better which is not accurate either.

Nestor J. Aparicio  09:44


In the percentage way right Correct. Yeah,

Wendy Bronfein  09:47

and a percent Oh, it’s so it’s so potent. It’s that’s awesome. Like, okay, it is so potent and that could be great, but like it doesn’t need to be and what why it kind of what gets you to why If you do feel relaxed, your moods uplifted, your mind’s quieted or any other kind of effect is coming from those terpenes. So like, you know, which you sort of over time if you pay attention, you know, like, for example, there’s a terpene called terpinolene. Like, that’s my go to, because I’m a little bit more like you, I don’t need you to, I don’t want to be relaxed, I can relax on my own, like, I like when I feel like kind of like the best version of myself. And that that terpinolene It’s very clear headed. It’s it’s focusing and energy, I feel happy and good and productive. I can’t

Nestor J. Aparicio  10:35

say it, let alone spell it and looked at and we’ve been doing, we’ve been doing business a little while and I’ve known you a period of time. I knew I knew of you and your place long before I knew you quite frankly. And you know, my wife’s journey after her. And by the way, it was 10 years ago today that her life was saved. her bone marrow transplant was 10 years ago tonight. So this week is a special week that a special day to rebirth day, June 26. Every year as we take this, but that journey about wellness and what marijuana we whatever we were calling it, you know what cannabis, you were the first place I ever went. And look, I went to shops in Colorado, Washington, you know, back in 10 years ago, you’re the first place I ever went in. And it wasn’t a minute ago, it was when you were doing a lot of wellness. And it was very, very early medical. You had a little thing about the size of the lottery ticket. And my son turned me on to this and it was a trip guide. And I thought term like like Maryland? No Yeah, they came curio came up with a fun name for something and named after. And we were you’re wearing your Maryland shirt to win. But terpenes are the science of all of this and sort of learned that a couple years ago, I have far from mastered and or even how to pronounce some of these things, spell them, but understanding what limited limited lean and limonene may do it differently. And and in a lot of cases, it’s trial and error and that it doesn’t have to be that way. I think the more educated you can be going in the better decision you can make. And I you have been on the front end with this little guide about what this stuff is. Tell folks about that because you’ve made it a little bigger. I couldn’t read the damn thing a few years ago. Yeah, yeah,

Wendy Bronfein  12:17

they’re slightly less well because now it used to be terpenes. Now it’s cannabinoids and terpenes so it gives you both so they they have we give them out at other dispensaries we have at foreign daughter and don’t have one. Okay, well


Nestor J. Aparicio  12:31

I don’t have I don’t have one I’m just saying I just didn’t do to me that’s why but it’s

Wendy Bronfein  12:35

like you know, it’s basically like on the left it’s you’ve got your list of benefits like stress, relaxation, focus, mood, nausea, inflammation, whatever. And then you have your all your list of terpenes you know, and you cross pollinate to the dots that will identify what you’re looking for similar situation with the cannabinoids so you’ve got THC, but you also have a series of minor cannabinoids. So, you know, this, these two together, you know, people talk about the entourage effect that’s that’s sort of these constituents working together. Very much shows up in flour, very much shows up in vapes, sprains, strains specific and potentially others, and shows up specifically in our terpene choose. Because those are formulations where we’re harnessing specific terpenes to give you those exact effects every time. Now, Shawn

Nestor J. Aparicio  13:29

haven’t had this, right, these are I have mango, and I have orange, lemon using a whole lot of them, you know that just

Wendy Bronfein  13:39


because they’re both the up there. I mean, I’ve even

Nestor J. Aparicio  13:41

said to you, if there’s ever going to be a nasty Nestor strain, it ain’t gonna put me to sleep, you know, I mean, it’s gonna help me get things done. I’m the guy who gets things done. I’m, you know, I’m not a mid day person. For these, but and I find 25 to be a little, you know, little strong little, little, I can’t get anything done, you know what I mean? Like, definitely on a weekend or whatever, when I want to get things done. But, but I also find that there’s a consistency in how it makes you feel. And then the other part is just lungs and smoking, which is obviously not, you know, not the perfect way to consume, but to to have these. I’m fascinated by how these are made and how you extract this and you’re really I mean, we’re coming and getting chocolates and things not knowing just says THC, it doesn’t say TV, you don’t know what you’re getting, I think as we, if you haven’t shopped in a while or haven’t been someplace sophisticated, like over the foreign data and talk to people I think you’ve come a long way in a very short period of time to making this thing a little bit more crystallized for people that they can get what they want when they want it how they want it and as much or as little as they want it you know, to get a five five milligram Yeah,

Wendy Bronfein  14:49

I mean, you’ve got this like kind of jargon of the sativa indica hybrid. And that is coming from where these terpenes fall Right, because the more sedating ones are going to land you in the indica, and the more uplifting and it lands you in sativa and you know, anywhere in between. But

Nestor J. Aparicio  15:08

um, so hybrid, right, right has a little bit of everything right. Okay. Yeah.


Wendy Bronfein  15:11

And so but, but like on on the chew or gummy front, a lot of times on packages, you can see it categorized like that. But if you look at the label that has the details from the lab analysis, you’d be hard pressed to find in any shoe in the state other than ours, that those terpenes actually show up. So at the end of the day, you’re really just back to having a THC or some sort of cannabinoid ratio product, you’re not really having this, like, effects driven experience. And the I mean, like I do, I’m a fan of the mango and orange as well, because those are the uplifting ones. And I actually like them for like, say, like a Saturday night, right? Because it’s like you’re going out, you’re your energy you don’t like if you were like, Oh, let me have a cup of coffee before I go out, I’m gonna be on talk to people, whatever, donate any of that like, and I think that the terpenes you know, the five milligram

Nestor J. Aparicio  16:08

smoker, I guess that’s the other part of this. Yes.

Wendy Bronfein  16:11

And you can take a whole or a half. And I think the fact that the terpenes, which drive the effect you want, they plus up, you don’t have to think as much about the potency of the THC, because the effects are driving through that. So you just feel I mean, the other one is the pineapple is a big, which is also comes in a berry flavor is the other end of the spectrum. And that one is more like quieting your mind. And rely on

Nestor J. Aparicio  16:37


us that I’ve used the five and by the way, no no effect the pineapples taste the best you like I like like I liked them, but they’re late night thing. I mean, they just are there. For me, there’s something seventh inning of an oral game that hopefully doesn’t go too long. That’s the guy on second base now. But you know, I’m an old fart, you know, this Wednesday, I mean, nine 930, I’m getting little tired. And sleeping is not my problem for other people. You know, my wife has found this product, the good night product. This is Paul’s release. This is a whole different game and really a patent thing that you guys have about sleeping. So there’s just, I don’t know, there’s all sorts of things. That’s why I promote the product curing wellness in our French foreign daughter, Wendy Brown, fine is here. She’s over on York Road, you can find them at foreign daughter stop by and see them or visit. And I must say on the website, I started poking around on the curio wellness website, that the information and blogs and stories being written. I mean, to me, it’s it’s mandatory. If you’re coming in and spend the money on the product and you’re looking for something, especially if you’re not getting what you want. You want to be more well, it’s not doing exactly what I want, you probably should talk to somebody at your place. Right?

Wendy Bronfein  17:44

Yeah, I mean, I think like we, we have a pretty robust website is specifically relative to being cannabis. And we seek to have a lot of information on there, whether it’s like literally just look up one product and feel like you’re on sort of a consumer goods site where you can really understand what that product is. And then you’ve got things like blogs and things about the business and our approach and all these different pieces. And I does help make the consumer a lot more informed because in the absence of it, I can say that dispensary menus are very large, I often tease that they’re like cheesecake factory. And like it can be very overwhelming if you don’t know what you want, or if you’re new to be overwhelming if you know what you want. Right? And so it’s like having given yourself some base level of like, I understand the product forms that comes in I understand kind of what the flavor choices, the cannabinoids terpenes like the general basics of what’s going on even your endocannabinoid system, how it where the receptors are in your body, why it’s working that’s on the website to about a

Nestor J. Aparicio  18:49

readout I don’t know. Yeah, I feel that quiz. You give me a quiz next week on that I’m gonna lose.

Wendy Bronfein  18:53

You know, it just it probably will make the shopping experience a little better and put you a little bit more control of it. Rather than just be relying on on the person who’s helping you.


Nestor J. Aparicio  19:05

Whenever I find is he or she is the Chief Brand Officer for curio wellness, she’s our chief cannabis officer trying to educate us is when I went to her about a year and a half ago I said I want to educate people I want to talk to people about this but more than I want to know so when people asked me I can learn a little bit more it certainly is been a lot of fun. She now has her own spot out on front of Baltimore and a new website we had Jessica Val was on last week on the crabcake tour talking about design and making websites and all that good stuff I want to turn the tables on a little because we talked baseball where my stuff your Orioles whatever, your CFG Bank Arena sponsor where now boy you’re in three months into this right I saw that Frank everybody then won these awards and for its size number one like in the world and bring it in and then I look here and I’m I’m just going through the roster, and I’m old enough to remember the old Civic Center have in the future kiss in earth when the fire we’re playing in the 70s or they take an ad out and they They put a little calendar together and some of the dates would add some things but it was an underutilized arena. And I think your investment and your family’s investment and sponsorship for you and a whole bunch of other people that have come in down there to be a part of it with lowland everybody there. I’m just looking at like the next couple of weeks here in the summertime and I see Chris Brown Justin Timberlake Janet Jackson, Missy Elliott, Slipknot, you and I are going to Slipknot but a lot of people are they like that Oscar is doing a couple of dates crazy sold out. Pearl Jam, I mean, need I say more. Maxwell’s coming in September’s Billy Eilish. Uh, you know, so we’re getting the biggest acts in the world acts that are so cool. That I’m I called them I’m just too old to be cool enough to go see Billy Eilish at this point. But I’m sure like a niece or nephew would be way into that. You got to be happy with that and going down there and putting your name with it. I I’m happy about it. I’m, I’m happy when I go down there and experience anything. Because it’s it’s been a real nice thing for the city. And I just named all those. Those are all nights where 810 12 14,000 people are going to come downtown and be a part of things 100%

Wendy Bronfein  21:11

I mean, that look, there’s there’s kind of a lot of pieces that drew us to this, but one you know, we are very concert and musically oriented. It like my family specifically. So that is a path time that we enjoy. So it’s really connected. But we’ve been to that arena our whole lives. I have some, you know, good and embarrassing shows. I’ve definitely seen they’re like my first one Shaun

Nestor J. Aparicio  21:39

Cassidy. Yeah. Okay. So Emily, did you really there?

Wendy Bronfein  21:43


Mine was the Monkees. The but but ya know, I mean, I think it’s really a one. It’s wonderful to see it invigorated the investment they’ve made. And it’s fantastic. It’s, you know, some of the I feel like when you go to concerts, the Reno’s like that are gems, because there was a time when it was like we’re building bigger and bigger, right? And then, you know, like, it’s kind of like, no seat becomes a good seat, because you have to sit so far, because it’s so big, and like stadium show we’ve ever been to, right? Like, it’s like, you know, their arena, it’s as big as the footprint was they added some more seats, but it’s a great size, they made massive, amazing investment in like the acoustics and the sound. So the production quality is awesome there. I mean, I’ve seen a few shows, and every one has been kind of better than the next. And my and honestly, like, my hope of hopes is that, you know, it’s like the nucleus of something that happens, right? Because if you start going to the concerts in the arenas book, then somebody opens a restaurant nearby, and let’s get dinner there. Before we go, let’s go to the bar after and like, you know, it just kind of starts to build out more neighborhoods, and we become like less pocketed. And that central downtown really is invigorated.

Nestor J. Aparicio  22:57

Well, I’ve been a dozen times in the first year. And it’s just the last time you and I got together. I tell you this, I went out. I was part of that Vegas thing with Bill Cole a couple of weeks ago and I took a side trip over to LA to see Pearl Jam. And I went to the fabulous Los Angeles forum, the Showtime forum where I had seen the Lakers play with Shaq. 20 years ago, I saw the LA Kings play there back in the last century. And it was an old falling apart, beautifully built circle, the forum it has these columns out in front. But when you got inside of it, it was clearly built 19th century you know, whatever. And it’s the challenged area that now has this giant SoFi stadium blimp right in the parking lot next to it in Inglewood. But I went out there for Pearl Jam on that Tuesday and I walked the neighborhood and it’s Inglewood, Inglewood up to no good and it’s you know, I stopped at the liquor store and bought literally a $2.24 ounce Coors Light and put it in the ticket to the tailgate and put I walked into that arena that I had been in not like our arena where I grew up there. But I’ve been to that arena for basketball and hockey. And from the minute I walked in, first off, when you’re in the outside is impressive. It’s beautiful. But when I walked inside, it reminded me of the CFG banking arena experience where they took this old space and there wasn’t one nanosecond that I was there that I thought about the Lakers, or the kings are being there being there. Outside I did. I’m like I’ve been here before the minute you walk in, they painted the whole place black kind of like CFT to make it a theater to make it sexy to make it dark to make it feel like a place you want to see that the show is appropriate. Every theater and Broadway dark. You want to dark every movie theater dark, they painted black it stays dark for the most part, but fixing the acoustics of both of those buildings that were acoustically not so perfect. And going to my wife and I went to see staying at with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra at the Kimmel center in Philly. And it’s just for the minute you’re there. You’re like there’s science involved in the sound of this building and what they’ve done and I think anybody that hadn’t been to the CFG banquet or had been there and heard how bad it sounded, you know, just because of the way the concrete was and all the things that they did these people that read the the arena when the promise they made with your sponsorship and for the city and all that it’s a great sounding venue. And they go into Sara Houston here and Springsteen in a blimp, to realize just how awful the sound could be. And but they, but they, they’re doing this in other places, and it’s good enough for LA, it was good enough for Pearl Jam and La you know, what, three nights it’s good enough for Baltimore one night, and it’s kept the arena live

Wendy Bronfein  25:34

venue that’s like, that becomes driven by like, performances and not driven by, like the sports where it’s like, well, we got to build a hockey venue. But then we also program other things here. It’s that it’s literally about that. I think that makes it really kind of special to

Nestor J. Aparicio  25:52

All right, well, I’m not gonna hit you up for Pearl Jam tickets, cuz I’ve already seen Pearl Jam. But, you know, I think they’re all gone. Maybe I’ll see a Janet Jackson or Justin Timberlake, your next couple of weeks. Yeah, you know, my wife with this is the problem. You know, my wife broke her ankle, right? I know, my wife loves concerts. We saw the stones, three days before she broke her ankle. So at least she got the, you know, doable, satisfactory, she can’t dance. So like take it or Janet Jackson, whom she loves, and Justin Timberlake whom she loves, and she can only maybe move the top part of herself instead of the bottom part, maybe like a Barney Rubble dance or something like that. I’m a little weirded out about taking her someplace where she can’t dance when she wants to dance. So I still want to I owe her Janet Jackson. So I’m gonna take her to Janet Jackson after we’ll are in there. But I hope to see you down there. I hope to see you in the stores, any new products, anything new to tell folks I know, the rewards programs, something you’re real proud of that even if you buy these terpene infused choose somewhere else at a different dispenser anywhere. There’s QR code, and you rock that and yeah, get involved in saving money and getting points, right. Yeah,


Wendy Bronfein  26:58

so I think most most consumers and patients are used to wherever you frequent in terms of dispensaries, they have loyalty programs, you can earn points and trade them in for stuff. We now you can add to that by having a loyalty points program with any products that we make. And so yes, when you scan those codes, it opens up, it’ll prompt you to open an app. It’ll say claim valid points and then you’ll fill a wallet and you can turn those in for either custom merch or E gift cards that can be used at the locations that we own. So that’s the foreign dollar in Timonium and our store up in Elkton, Maryland. And then the and we can do fun stuff like right now June 1 suite of products are all double points like we can we can turn on little extra activations when we want and so you know, you’re you’re basically benefiting on kind of double the double dip, if you will on rewards when you shop anywhere. And it’s beyond the curio so if you’re not familiar, you know, we also produce the Smokies choose the Dixie line caviar flower by Ed Parker. Happy Eddie.

Nestor J. Aparicio  28:07

I got up Yeti on this week, by the way, I’m looking for happy Eddie, Maryland, by the way. Yes,
