Weed Talks - Episode 11 - Andrew Freedman
Welcome to Weed Talks hosted by Lester From Cannabis Wiki. Join him as he interviews various people in the Cannabis industry and community to find out who they are and what they're up to.
Today we are honored to have with Andrew Freedman aka "The Cannabis Sommelier", his focus on pairing cannabis, beer, cocktail, wine and gastronomy are completely unique and original.
Andrew worked in the cannabis trade for over a decade. Noticing that there was a lack of scientific language for describing cannabis he became very interested in blind tasting wine. His expertise in growing and extracting cannabis led to a passion for viticulture and oenology. He soon found himself living on a vineyard working as a cellar hand at an estate winery. While honing his palate he became a WSET 3 and one of few Canadian Wine Scholars.
Andrews passion for cannabis and wine led him to begin teaching what he had learned and created "The Cannabis Sommelier" YouTube channel which currently features new content constantly. Noticing a lack of quality communication for the cannabis customer Andrew invented the 100 point scale of grading and rating cannabis.
Andrew will also be having a unique cannabis cocktail class at the C45 Quality summit.
