How’s it growing folks? Welcome to the latest episode of Here Weed Go!
Today’s episode has a decidedly European flavor: my guest is a Michael Sassano, the Founder, Chairman and CEO of Somai Pharmaceuticals, a European pharmaceutical and biotech company centered on manufacturing in Lisbon, Portugal.
Sassano is a bit of a legend in the world of cannabis startups here stateside and was an early investor in the cannabis industry. He also started his own cultivation farm, Solaris Farms, that merged with a dispensary brand in Las Vegas, where he was during our conversation.
A wide ranging and engaging chat, we touch on how Sassano got into the cannabis space, what he see’s as the main difference between EU and US approaches to cannabis regulation and culture, and where the real future of cannabis lies – both in the United States and internationally.
