Millennials In Cannabis: Meet Jacob Silverstein
Originally from New York, Jacob Silverstein has been a medical marijuana patient and advocate in Nevada for the past several years. After a lengthy career in government and the non-profit sector, Jacob entered the cannabis industry as the marketing manager for Silver State Wellness and Las Vegas ReLeaf.
“As a premiere distributor of Dixie Elixirs in Nevada, Las Vegas ReLeaf is proud to offer patients an increased variety of high quality products that appeal to both novice and veteran consumers alike, and particularly to non-smokers by offering sodas, mints, tinctures, topical lotions, chocolates, and more,” Silverstein explains.
Joel has been featured in a variety of media outlets including the New York Times, helping to normalize cannabis culture and educate the public on the health benefits of cannabis.
When Las Vegas ReLeaf opened its doors one year ago on October 5, 2015, there were only a handful of operating medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Nevada, and none operating within the City of Las Vegas.
Learn the ins and outs of marketing and launching your cannabis business or product at the May installment of Millennials in Cannabis, where on May 4, Silverstein will participate as a panelist at the Las Vegas Medical Marijuana Association talk, featuring top millennials in the cannabis industry.
