About Cannabis Life Network
Cannabis Life Network gives voice to the growers, entrepreneurs, and consumers who live and breathe cannabis, and not just when they’re smoking it. Through its partnerships with Craig Ex of Expert Joints and #Studio710, CLN creates entertaining and educational content that shines a spotlight on those who continue to push the culture and movement forward, while providing a much-needed counterpoint to the often negative coverage in the mainstream media.
