Cool Cannabis Careers: Rachel Wolfson, Weed Comedian And Podcaster
In this edition, I’m featuring Rachel Wolfson, weed comedian and host of the podcast “Chronic Relief.” When I first heard about Rachel getting into cannabis comedy, I instantly wondered: How does someone with a judge for a mother, a district attorney for a father, and a prosecutor for a sister, a.k.a. someone living in a “Giant Law & Order episode,” get into this business? As it turns out, Rachel’s history with cannabis started when she was five years old, and diagnosed with ADHD, she says. At age 12, Rachel was given another diagnosis: bipolarity. Rachel picked the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, best known as NORML. From Recreation To Creation. How did Rachel go from just consuming cannabis to making a career of it? As her following built up, Rachel decided to start working with her best friend, Olivia Alexander, founder of Kush Queen. “We both saw a demand for high end weed content,” Rachel continued. The YouTube channel and memes account rapidly became successful, and Rachel decided to take a swing at stand up comedy – with an emphasis on cannabis topics. Seeking to diversify, Rachel started her own podcast. As time went by, Rachel often missed podcasting, so she started her own, new show, “Chronic Relief,” which combined all of her passions. Before ending our conversation, Rachel shared some advice for other people seeking to make a living off cannabis entertainment: “Get to know the plant and be original!”.
‘Budding Prospects’, Amazon’s New Weed Comedy Set In Northern California, Premieres Pilot: SFist
One of the new shows in Amazon’s pilot season is Budding Prospects, based on the 1990 novel of the same name by TC Boyle, and it centers on three guys from San Francisco who head north to grow marijuana in the early 1980’s. The book was mentioned by several commenters when SFist published this list of great SF-set novels two years back, and it’s one of several shows Amazon is premiering, with the pilot available for viewing right now on Amazon Prime. It’s directed by Terry Zwigoff, the director of Ghost World and Bad Santa who’s also an old friend of R. Crumb from living in SF back in the day – he also directed the 1994 documentary Crumb. In 1983, three hapless guys from San Francisco are lured from their sex and drugs lifestyle to the countryside to grow marijuana. They find themselves stuck in a run-down cabin in the middle of nowhere, with harsh and unfriendly growing conditions, nosy neighbors, dangerous locals, and menacing law enforcement. All Felix Nasmyth and friends have to do is harvest a crop of Cannabis Sativa and half a million tax-free dollars will be theirs. They haven’t reckoned on nosy Northern California-style neighbors, torrential rain, demands of the flesh, and Felix’s improbable new love, a wayward sculptress on whose behalf he undertakes a one-man vendetta against a drug-busting state trooper named Jerpbak. As their deal escalates through crises into nightmare, their dreams of easy money get nipped in the bud.
