‘In the Weeds’ Episode 6: Go Inside a Cannabis Compounding Pharmacy – Featuring Brie Malarkey, Founder of Breeze Botanicals
On today’s show we get to know Brie Malarkey, founder of Breeze Botanicals. Breeze Botanicals is a successful chain of dispensaries operating in southern Oregon’s renowned cannabis growing region.
Brie’s refreshingly simple approach to cannabis takes us back to our roots – literally. Listen and let Brie’s approach to cannabis herbal compounding inspire you to get back to beauty of whole plant medicine.
Brie Malarkey is a equal parts accomplished herbalist and successful entrepreneur. When at her dispensaries Brie, and her team of herbal experts, create custom cannabis herbal compounds and infusions that bring optimal health to her customers and medical patients. But Brie is equally respected for her keen business acumen and has opened two dispensaries as well as an herbal farm, Sunna Ra. Sunna Ra grows not just cannabis but dozens of other herbs that Brie then uses to craft her custom herbal blends. Passionate about local food and guarding the natural world, Brie is an inspiration, flying in the face of the cannabis industry’s leaning toward large scale production and manufacturing.
