History In The Making with Jair Velleman (Episode 1)

History in the Making – featuring World of Cannabis Museum founder and curator Jair Velleman (Episode 1). In this inaugural episode of Cannthropology, host Bobby Black sits down with World of Cannabis Museum founder and curator Jair Velleman at his home in Amsterdam to discuss how he got the idea for the museum, how he decided to bring Bobby in on the project, and what they hope to accomplish with it. 

The World of Cannabis Museum

Jair Velleman is an award-winning cannabis entrepreneur, activist, and philanthropist. He is the former co-owner of the Gavita lighting company and current co-owner of DabStars and Lbs. Distribution, as well as an avid collector of rare cannabis-related artwork, antiques, and artifacts. The museum is Jair’s dream—a way for him to give back to the cannabis community that has given him so much.


The World of Cannabis Museum Project Presents: Cannthropology—the podcast that explores the history of cannabis culture one artifact and interview at a time. Hosted by World of Cannabis executive director and marijuana media icon Bobby Black. In each episode, Bobby chooses a different item (or items) from the museum’s collection of around 500 rare antiques, artifacts, and artworks, and welcomes on a different guest to help him explore that item’s unique significance and place in cannabis history.

The World of Cannabis Museum will showcase the influence of cannabis in art, music, film, news, medicine, and politics throughout the past century. From the early days of prohibition and “reefer madness,” to its modern-day mainstream momentum and everything in between: from the legendary growers and breeders who created and propagated all of the iconic strains, to the smugglers who distributed them across the globe; from the activists who have fought for legalization, to the celebrities who have embraced it; from America’s headshops to Amsterdam’s coffee shops; from the counterculture of the 1960s, the excesses of the ’70s, and the Drug War hysteria of the ’80s, to the rise of medical marijuana in the ’90s and the march toward legalization and mainstream acceptance in the new millennium—all of this and more we plan to explore in this unprecedented exhibition. Coming soon!
