LEAF LIFE – SHOW #88 – SEATTLE
So much of art and culture has been influenced by Cannabis over the years behind the scenes, but now that we live in a time of normalization for the plant, how are artists directly applying the influence into their creations? And looking at how much of a negative impact cotton is on the environment, and as hemp can replace every aspect of fashion from the ink to the stitching, where and when will it fit in? Let’s get high on this fun discussion that applies to one of the most common areas shared by humans and beyond–clothing.

MIKE RICKER - Host
After finishing at the top of his graduating class and earning a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism at San Diego State University, Mike embarked on a career that included syndication, spanning seven markets in twenty years, culminating in a national Billboard Award for Rock Radio Personality of the Year in Seattle in 2008. During that time, Mike enjoyed success as a commercial voice actor (Sprite, Tampa Bay Lightning NHL team) and hosted a television lifestyle show called Flux in Tampa, Florida that aired on the ABC affiliate. Mike left terrestrial radio 2011 to write four books over the next five years before accepting a partnership with WAM OIL in 2016, Washington’s Original Co2 Hash Oil company, and taking the reins of Sales/Marketing Director. In 2017, WAM OIL won the prestigious Dope Industry Award for Concentrate Company of the Year. In 2019, Mike came on as a partner with Wes as part of the global expansion of The Leaf magazines.
WES ABNEY - Co Host
Wes Abney is the founder of the Leaf Nation family of brands that began in 2010 with Northwest Leaf magazine. Recognized as the first Cannabis magazine in the region, Northwest Leaf defined and developed the medical and recreational Cannabis communities in Washington state with free publications focused on quality content and truthful journalism. The success of the magazines led to Oregon Leaf in 2014, Alaska Leaf in 2016, and most recently Maryland Leaf magazine in January 2019.
Wes’s writing and publishing background began with his college newspaper, The Ebbtide, which included a love for multimedia and creating content on many platforms. The nickname “Bearded Lorax” came after years of publishing millions of free magazines, using his voice to speak for a plant and those that benefit from it. Wes is an activist not only for Cannabis, but for ending the drug war and freeing prisoners who have been wrongfully incarcerated for non-violent crimes.
His passion for reaching people with written and spoken words led to the concept of Leaf Life with Mike Ricker, which began development in 2018 and launched in January 2019. With the combined passions of Cannabis and a love for broadcasting, the partnership on Leaf Life was a natural progression for Leaf Nation as it spreads roots across the United States.
In addition to magazines and content creation Leaf Nation also includes brands like Leaf Chews, Higher Than A Space Shuttle, Tannins and Terpenes, The Concentrate Cup, Stoner Owner, and more coming as the family of brands continues to grow. Look for Leaf Nation products, events and media wherever you enjoy Cannabis!
