Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers creator Thom Beers is planting his latest seed in TV ground with a new reality series about CBD, and we would love to arrange an interview with Thom and the stars behind the new television show Kings of Kush premiering March 9th on Vice TV. The series follows Anthony “Sully” Sullivan, a celebrity TV pitchman best known as “the OxiClean guy,” as he launches a new hemp farming venture. Sully took a departure from his 30-year career in selling products on TV when his daughter was born with a rare genetic disorder and needed an alternative to prescription medication. After witnessing the benefits of CBD, he started a 116-acre organic hemp farm and enlisted his friend and TV adventure racer Dave Christian to help, although neither of them knew anything about farming. Despite this, they built Montkush Farms in Vermont and let Beers and his team film it. Also in the series is famed Survivor winner Ethan Zohn, a longtime friend who battled cancer and relied on cannabis in his post-cancer recovery. After learning of the mission, Ethan joined the crew and spent the summer at the farm becoming an investor himself.
We spoke with Zohn and Sully about how CBD has helped the both of them in different ways, Zohn post cancer and Sully with his daughter, allowing them to have a relationship that they wouldn’t have otherwise. The series didn’t need to create drama as it naturally occurs when man faces against nature in dealing with blizzards, lack of water, building a farm on the side of a mountain and being able to plant the seeds at the optimal time.
