To the degree that you can calibrate your openness to experience, you can sort of chemically assist yourself being more receptive and being more present, and not pre mapping everything.
Jason Silva and Will Kleidon

Welcome to a new episode of the Flow Research Collective Radio with two seriously creative thinkers! 

Today, we have with us:  Jason Silva and Will Kleidon.

Will Kleidon is an award-winning pioneer and futurist in the hemp and cannabis industry. Will is the founder of Ojai Energetics, a triple bottom line-driven cannabis technology company. 

Full disclosure: We are conducting research with Ojai and Steven serves on their advisory council. It is safe to say: We are fans.

Jason Silva is an Emmy-nominated and world renown TV personality, storyteller, filmmaker, and sought-after keynote speaker and futurist. 

He was the host of National Geographic documentaries: Brain Games and Origins.

You will know his talks and ‘Shots of Awe’ videos on Youtube that made him widely popular in our community.

He is a long time friend of ours, here at the Flow Research Collective. 

We talk about trends about Cannabis, CBD, research. We also discuss creativity, flow and the endocannabinoid system. 

It’s kind of a wild and choppy conversation in some respects—we went all over the place but it was fun.
