Notable quotes from the episode: “If we’re going to get hammered in retail because of COVID, then let’s shift our weight over to online [sales] and figure out what leverage we can pull to better connect with consumers in that space.” ~Charles Smith “Store owners are seeing 50-60% drop off in retail sales [because of COVID-19]” ~Matt Sibert

“By far, to me, this is the fastest industry I’ve ever seen as far as having to pivot…the cannabis space, you have to be able to pivot fast. An example of that is how delta-8-THC came out of nowhere. The manufacturers that jumped on it fast, they’re making a fortune right now even though that’s a really gray area…a point about pivoting” ~Matt Sibert
