I finally caught up with Wilfred Cannabis operator Jason Gann, who rose to stardom in January 2021, has weathered the ups and downs of startup cannabis ownership.
Today he continues to survive, learn and grow his brand. Wilfred CBD and hemp, and his entrepreneurial spirit. While doing so, he has his usual entrepreneurial spirit. In addition to running the brand, Gann is embarking on further efforts to grow the brand while giving back to his fans and the cannabis community.
Launched in December 2020, the Wilfred Cannabis brand is California, highlighted by THC pre-roll smoke shaped like tobacco. A few months later, CBD smoke rolled around as well. The THC brand gradually started to turn a profit across the California market. There was immediate interest among die-hard fans of the Australian and US versions. Wilfred, co-created by Gann. Recognition led to book conferences, appearances, and sales.
Fueled by marketing efforts such as in-store demos, Gann took charge of half shifts for himself and Wilfred to meet and report strong growth potential for the THC brand. He said it could expand to Oregon, Washington, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
But the pandemic combined with product and partner issues hit Wilfred hard. The growth plan failed. Rather than moving forward, the THC brand stopped in his 2021.
Like many ambitious cannabis operators, Gann has turned around to stay in business. Having put his THC efforts on hold, he’s now focusing on his CBD line and his Delta-8, a controversial product he stands by.
Delta-8-THC, a natural chemical cannabinoid found in small amounts in the hemp and marijuana plants, certainly has supporters and operators like Gann. We advocate the use of low intensity highs. Many others have defended Delta-8 because it bypasses the ban on Delta-9-THC and can be sold legally.
Most concerns about Delta-8 relate to flower quality and potential solvent spray during production. Delta-8 proponents often refute this claim, suggesting that very few bad guys participate in such practices. Still, many states have banned or partially banned its sale and production while the debate continues. 14 states Passed legislation against Delta 8 as of January 2023.
Gann said he became a fan of Delta 8 after being introduced to it during the pandemic.
“I am a spokesperson for Delta 8,” Gann said. He continues:
On the CBD side, Wilfred Cannabis continues to source flowers from an unnamed Tennessee-based hemp grower. Each CBD cigarette contains 80-100 mg of his CBD. Meanwhile, THC brands are looking for new ways to enter various US markets. Multiple regional license agreements are being considered, including California, Illinois, New York and Australia.
Gann touched on some of the positives in the licensing, including, “We want to work with a licensing partner who understands the value of the brand and wants to get exclusive rights in that state.”
Currently based in Galicia, Spain with his wife and children, Gyan splits his time between his wife’s home country and the United States to attend to brands, production partners and other business operations.

Gann’s second planned podcast attempt is cannabis cordbilled as . universe meet ancient alien meet the da vinci code, each episode will feature Gann taking listeners on a journey that connects cannabis and humanity. Gann’s years of personal experience with plants, mental health, and alcoholism influenced the show.
Gann, who had quit drinking for six years by 2013, abstained from cannabis until Season 4. Wilfred It was close to shooting. This decision was due to the understanding he gained early in his life and the help of his doctors. For Gann, the decision to use cannabis was more than medical.
“I felt like I had a spiritual connection with cannabis that was important to my soul journey,” he said.
This feeling inspired him to explore the spiritual connection cannabis had with early and later groups of humanity.of cannabis cord, He wants to analyze those connections and what he feels they mean.
“I believe there are other healing elements in cannabis that science and medicine cannot yet define,” he said.
Gyan was particularly interested in the Dogon people of Mali. In ancient Dogon tales and prophecies, cannabis is believed to originate from the brightest star in the winter sky, the Two-Dog He Star. Known as his two dog plant of the Dogon tribe, this plant was gifted to humans by visiting species. The story has been passed down for thousands of years. As such, many believe that the Dogon tribe has something to do with the Gyan-supported extraterrestrial species.
“I don’t believe these people told this story for 20,000 year old prank purposes…to future generations…” he said.
Gann believes cannabis not only came from another planet, but it helps expand and evolve our thinking.
“When I was about 27, I interacted with an extraterrestrial collective,” he said.
Since that experience 23 years ago, Gann has explored and learned more about extraterrestrial life, history, and ancient civilizations.he feels cannabis cord Help answer some of these questions.
