What Is Respect My Region?
Fashion connoisseurs, particularly those from the West Coast, have known Respect My Region since its inception in 2011 as a clothing brand. Founder and CEO Mitch Pfeifer developed the line with Andy Layman when they were in college and it became an instant hit in the Pacific Northwest, evolving quickly into a full-spectrum lifestyle brand and community-centric platform. When Joseph Brabo, now Respect My Region’s co-owner, came aboard as the brand’s Chief Operations Officer, he convinced the team to enter the cannabis industry. They did their first West Coast Weed tour in 2018, spotlighting the best the region had to offer in cannabis culture. But by 2021, with 37 states having legalized some form of cannabis, the minds at Respect My Region knew it was time to go nationwide with the first North American Weed Tour.
What’s New For The 2022 North American Weed Tour?
According to Joseph Brabo, the 2022 North American Weed Tour will be bigger and more comprehensive than ever. "After last year's overwhelmingly successful tour, we're excited to scale the campaign to include more than just product reviews and podcast interviews,” he said. “This year, we've added 420 University, an educational series with Betty Krocker Bakes and myself, the Legacy Cannabis Podcast hosted by Adam Ill, and the Gas or Trash Instagram Live Stream and Podcast series hosted by Mistah Cannabis. Additionally, our team is launching the Canadian Cannabis Podcast, Northeast Cannabis Podcast, and the Midwest Cannabis Podcast.”
"Scaling the tour with these new series will allow us to magnify the stories of new brands and businesses across North America even more,” said Respect My Region founder and CEO Mitch Pfeifer. “This year, the tour has been specially crafted to have a greater impact on cannabis brands in emerging markets while also amplifying the success of industry leaders and innovators.”
