For the second straight year, Illinois News Joint is partnering with The North American Weed Tour (NAWT) to help showcase legal cannabis products in Illinois. Illinois News Joint will appear on several NAWT podcast in the upcoming months to discuss several products, including a “Best Of” podcast in which News Joint reviewers select they’re favorite Illinois products.

The NAWT will host 250 podcast episodes and Instagram Live Streams showcasing cannabis products, retailers, farms, labs, kitchens, ancillary services, and technology.
The NAWT will review 500+ products and showcase brands across every category in select recreational markets. Respect My Region will feature more than 100 industry leaders on the company’s YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Twitch.
“After last year’s overwhelmingly successful tour, we’re excited to scale the campaign to include more than just product reviews and podcast interviews,” said Joseph Brabo, Co-owner of Respect My Region. “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.”
