A cannabis expert told us which strains of weed could help Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg

It’s been a tough year for tech billionaires – and it’s only halfway over. Being the good-natured people we are, we decided to help in the best way we know how: by contacting a cannabis expert and determining what embattled billionaires, and other stressed out tech workers, should be smoking to make it through the days.

Our expert, Socrates Rosenfeld, is an entrepreneur in the cannabis sector and the CEO of Jane Technologies, the company behind iheartjane. His business provides online marketplace services to dispensaries – it’s like the Amazon of cannabis. We called him “the leader cannabis tech needs” in our profile, and his TNW Answers session on 4/20 was insightful and entertaining.

However, before we get into his recommendations on the best strains for STEM workers and tech billionaires, let’s discuss what a “strain” actually is.

According to Rosenfeld, cannabis strains are a bit like coffee:

Now that we’re all on the same page, let’s get into our questions and Rosenfeld’s unabridged answers.

What strain would you suggest for a billionaire who is, hypothetically, the CEO of a social media company that just went through a giant data scandal during which he was forced to testify in front of congress?

While we’re on the subject, anything my readers can do to help Congress and the Trump administration understand the importance of decriminalizing cannabis and making it legal for adult recreational consumption nationwide?

Another hypothetical billionaire: what strain would best aid a genius inventor and engineer who seems to find himself spending far too much time arguing with the media and not enough time meeting his electric car company’s quotas?

What strain(s) would you suggest for someone forced to sit at a desk all day programming and working with code?

Same question but for someone who wastes most of their day on Twitter, spends some of it answering emails, and occasionally writes about artificial intelligence, politics, and tech? Asking for a friend.

What’s the best way for the CEO of a tech startup to imbibe cannabis?
