The Marijuana Show, dubbed "The Shark Tank of the cannabis industry" by CNBC, is back again for its third season. Premiering tonight, May 1st, The Marijuana Show's Season 3 offers a new take on the pitch show concept.
“We want cannabis consumers to have an epic show they can proudly show prohibitionist family members, politicians, doctors, nurses, and friends to educate them on the realities of medical cannabis and hemp. It takes a lot of people sharing the show to legalize it. We produce the show to educate, advocate and to help legalize cannabis and hemp.” said Wendy Robbins, director/producer/editor of The Marijuana Show.
In addition to riveting pitches from ganjapreneur hopefuls, viewers will get to know the personal stories of the contestants and their reasons for venturing into the cannabis industry – from moms and kids beating cancer to veterans looking for alternatives to opiates. By sharing their poignant and emotional stories, Season 3 helps shed stereotypes and stigmas of cannabis use while educating prohibitionists on its benefits.
Contestants on The Marijuana Show's Season 3 are seeking funding for new products and services, including a machine that rolls 420 joints in two minutes, the first home dispensary allowing consumers to blend any wellness recipe from their phone, a complete cannabis seed to sale app, immortality in a bottle, a cannabis cliff bar, and a security company that only hires veterans.
“The cast this season really bonded, has a great sense of humor and are passionate about why they are in this industry. They come from California, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, North Carolina and New Jersey. Most are mothers, fathers, or grandparents. Everyone has powerful, life-changing stories to share,” said Karen Paull, Executive Producer.
Launched in the summer of 2014, The Marijuana Show's concept was created initially as a means to help entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry create a blueprint to success and investment. The producers were looking for the next marijuana millionaires. The show skyrocketed into a critically acclaimed television show with over $20 Million in funding offered to contestants, three full seasons, and distribution on Amazon Prime.
