Host: Bear Syavong
How It All Began
by Andrea Prior, Product Support Specialist
Bear Syavong and Creed Leffler are two men with a similar passion. Driven by the desire to help people, their common goal is health. Bear is the founder of a company called Alternative Vibes which he created after years of involvement within the cannabis community. He has lived a life of challenge and faced many obstacles, as someone with health issues that benefited so greatly from this miraculous medicine he realized how much this truly could have helped him down his many walks of life. He knew he had the ability to do something and so with drive and determination, and of course plenty of hard work he made it here. Along this path Bear met Creed and a friendship as well as a core mission was developed. To continue to spread knowledge and accessibility, as well as legalization, and to provide appropriate help to those who need it.
When Brandy Babin, of Cannabis Radio reached out to Bear about a slot opening on CannabisRadio.com he knew this was something he wanted to do. Without hesitation he jumped at the opportunity to spread the message of how cannabis can change lives and help so many. After the radio interview with Dave Inman the momentum with Bear and Creed carried into this, Alternative Talk. Here at Alternative Talk we will touch upon all aspects surrounding our beliefs on cannabis, medicinal alternatives to current western medicine, the devastation of prohibition, and many more topics. Stay tuned, there’s always something new in the works!
