Creative Ops: The Dispensary Episodes

dispensary podcast episodes

I interviewed Casey Kornoelje about his marijuana dispensary, Pharmhouse Wellness. It’s the only locally owned and operated dispensary in the city of Grand Rapids (which is FULL of dispensaries based out of town/state).

And he’s doing good things for that part of the city. Hear his story, hear a day at their art market, and cap it off with an interview with the woman, Megan Smith, who does the social media and co-heads the event organizing for things like biking, yoga, art markets, music, movie nights, etc…

She’s also quite the artist, which you can see here.

Ep.56 | Casey Kornoelje – Grand Rapids’ Only Local in the Cannabis Game Creative Ops

Casey Kornoelje is the sole owner of the only locally-owned cannabis dispensary in Grand Rapids, Michigan. You might ask, "There are so many dispensaries…how is Pharmhouse Wellness the only local one?"  Great question. Listen for the answer to that, how Casey got into growing in the first place, how the shop came to fruition, and what his plans are for the shop and the community around it going forward. . . . Check out Pharmhouse Wellness on their website, http://www.pharmhousewellness.com, on Facebook @pharmhousewellness, and on Instagram @pharmhousewellness. . . . Follow the show and its host at http://www.christophertallon.com and on all social media @TallonWrites. . . . And leave a review AND a rating for the show wherever you download podcasts. Thanks!

Ep.73 | The Pharmhouse Wellness Art Market: A Podumentary… Creative Ops

Pharmhouse Wellness, Grand Rapids, Michigan's only locally owned and operated dispensary, had another art market. Again I sold books and (someone else's (my daugher's!)) art. This time, however, I brought my podcast gear and made a whole thing of it, talking to a little bit of every kind of person around: pot smokers, local celebrities, art enthusiasts, art vendors, budtenders, and one of the event organizers. And Mike Logan did a great read of the back of my book Switchers, which I encourage you to read. Your future self will thank you… .   .   . The interviewees are: Mike Logan | IG: @icecoldcomedian  Matt "soon-to-be from GR" Sweda | IG: @mattsweda Frankie | IG: @stolenchapstick K.C. | IG: @kcnextdoo_ & @nailzbykc_ Loyiso "Lou" Matanda | IG: @loyisomatandabey Ashley Nash | IG: @nashleyillustration ; nashleyillustration@gmail.com Kate Lewis | IG: @claykate ; http://www.katelewisceramics.com/shop Dean from BEDROOM CEILINGS | Insta and Facebook @bedroomceilings .   .   . Shout out to my tent sharing artists from the two markets: Los The Artist and Savannah Jade. One more to Michigrown for sponsoring the event and giving away some nice freebies! Hope to see you at the next one August 20, 2022, at Pharmhouse Wellness in Grand Rapids, Michigan!  

Ep.74 | Megan Smith – Art, Social Media, & Weed Creative Ops

Megan Smith is an artist who mainly works with natural materials and does beautiful stuff you can check out on Instagram @mossberrymarvels. She also manages the socials for Pharmhouse Wellness, as well as organizing their events with Ashley Nash (who you heard on the last podcast a little bit!). We talk art, process, social media, mental health, events, tv (the name of the show was Wilfred…) and movies, run-ins with the law, local coffee (Shift Coffee + Culture), and other stuff! We recorded in bean bag chairs next to the dispensary, so you'll feel like you're out on the lawn with friends as you hear some of the sounds of the city of Grand Rapids intermittently. … You can check out more on the show, its host (me), and my suspenseful, time-travel novel at http://www.christophertallon.com. … Do something creative and have a great day!

Take er easy, dude.
