Max Simon is the CEO and Founder of Green Flower Media, an online media company that partners with the world’s top experts to teach people about cannabis. Recently I had the chat with Max and check out their new product, the Strain Tracker.
STEPHANIE S: How did Green Flower Media come about?
MAX S: Green Flower started because there’s a tremendous amount of misinformation about cannabis, how it works in the body, what it is and isn’t good for, and so much more. The truth is, cannabis could be the perfect solution to millions of people’s ailments, including what to do for a living that’s fulfilling and purposeful. Green Flower brings the world’s top cannabis experts right to your home to educate people about the health side, the booming industry, how to grow, and so much more. If you have any interest in cannabis, Green Flower is your trusted source for cannabis education and expertise.

SS: Were you in the cannabis industry prior to Green Flower?
MS: Personally, I’ve been a cannabis consumer for two decades, though I was completely unaware that I was using cannabis medicinally to manage my hyperactive brain. I was just an uneducated consumer, which is one of the reasons why Green Flower started. But to answer your question, NO, Green Flower is our first company in the cannabis space.
SS: As a company, what are your primary goals?
MS: Our goal is to educate ten million people about cannabis by 2021. We believe cannabis is a far superior treatment to many of the biggest and most painful health challenges we face today including: insomnia, physical pain, depression, anxiety, nausea, cancer, and many more. Unfortunately, people are so misinformed about the plant and the stigma it still carries that they are not willing to give it a try. Our goal is to bring forward the world’s most credible experts to share the exciting truth around the plant, so they can experience the healing, relief, and happiness they deserve.
SS: Do you live in a medical or recreational state?
MS: Now we’re in an adult use state – California!
SS: Are you a medical marijuana patient?
MS: 100%. Use it daily to manage my hyperactivity.
SS: What is your favorite method of consumption?
MS: I alternate between a 1:1 tincture and micro-dosing vaporized cannabis flower.
SS: Do you have a favorite product?
MS: I have a few! I always favor sun-grown organic cannabis, I love my Herbalizer vaporizer, and I’m a big fan of Treatwell’s 1:1 tinctures.
SS: How do you see cannabis evolving in California?
MS: I played a major role in bringing meditation and yoga to the masses (over a decade ago) with Deepak Chopra, and now there are yoga studios on every corner and millions of people meditate daily. I believe cannabis will have the same outcome where over time, all states will legalize and people will have safe access to the medicine they need. The truth and science around this plant and what it’s capable of is simply too compelling for cannabis to remain stigmatized for much longer. I have zero doubts we’ll get there.
SS: The Strain Tracker is perfect for medical marijuana patients. How did this come to fruition?
MS: When you are truly using cannabis as a health and wellness tool, you want to get the most benefits with the least side-effects, which means you must track how each strain, product, dose, and consumption method makes you feel. There was no tool to do that, so we created the Strain Tracker. Now you can track every single aspect of your cannabis experience to really dial in which products and strains work best for you. Plus it comes with a free online course to help you become a “Master” Strain Tracker so you can learn all the special tricks and hacks to perfect your cannabis regime.
SS: Any tips for new medical marijuana patients?
MS: Get educated. People don’t realize that you can use cannabis and not get high. People don’t realize you can use cannabis to replace a huge array of pharmaceuticals or even over-the-counter drugs. People don’t realize just how many areas of your life this plant can influence in a positive way. But on the flip side, it only takes one bad experience to give this whole thing a bad wrap. So really get educated, and you’ll be blown away but just how many areas of your life cannabis can support when used right.
