Behind the Scenes of the Legal Marijuana Business January 15 2015

Founder Christian Hageseth gets candid about unique entrepreneurial pursuit in upcoming book

If you’re like many Americans, especially those in the great state of Colorado, you may have found yourself intrigued by the notion of the legal marijuana industry and even flirted with the idea of getting involved yourself. You may be asking yourself a number of questions, including:







  • How does one get involved in the legal marijuana industry
  • What type of people are in this industry?

  • What kind of background or skill sets are required?

  • Where is this industry going?

  • How would I navigate the various laws and restrictions?

  • What are the benchmarks of success in this type of business?

  • Is there a place for me the world of legal marijuana?

If this sound’s like you, you’re not alone. In fact you are in great company. Currently there are wheels spinning in many great minds, attempting to break into this world, refine a business plan, or just predict out where the heck we will be in 5 years. There are so many how’s, what-if’s, and why’s in this industry, it is still yearning for leaders to take the reins.

Through his book “Big Weed: An Entrepreneur’s High-Stakes Adventures in the Budding Legal Marijuana Business” (Macmillan, April 2015), entrepreneur Christian Hageseth recounts the journey (equal parts hilarious, heartwarming, and stress-inducing) that led him to spearhead one of the most successful legal marijuana operations in America, Green Man Cannabis, and bring his vision of the world’s first weedery to life through Green Man Cannabis Ranch & Amphitheater.

If you’re one of the many people interested in the inner workings of the legal marijuana industry, looking for a new entrepreneurial adventure, or simply want an excellent read, Christian Hageseth’s “Big Weed” is a great place to start. The book will be available for purchase the week of April 20, 2015, but you can preorder your copy now, and be sure to see what Amazon Vine reviewers are saying about it:
