‘All About Weed’

If you know The High Cloud, you know that we exist thanks to the help of our sponsors. One of these sponsors is, the website that’s “all about weed” by Joop Mestrom and Sanne van Schie.

Growing, trimming and writing content

This episode is rightfully a gathering of old friends. So it’s no surprise that the three men regularly talk about the past. For example, we discover how CNNBS came to be and learn more about the time when Uncle Kush got there. Accordingly we also hear anecdotes about trimming freshly harvested weed in the office and smoking fat doobies at work. But we also hear the story behind the name change from RollingStoned to CNNBS – under pressure from the rock band.
