In BC’s fertile Okanagan Valley, famous for its wines and orchards, Bud Empire star Bob Kay grows something a little greener.
Bud Empire centers around Bob, the owner of Be Kind and the Okanagan Compassion Club, as he fights for his businesses’ right to exist as Canadian cannabis transitions from the underground to the mainstream, while at the same time looking at franchising to transform his two dispensaries into a Canada-wide empire
Bud Empire premieres Tuesday, Jun. 5 at 10 pm PT/ET on Canada’s History Channel, and it’s literally history in the making as Bud Empire premieres Tuesday, Jun. 5 at 10 pm PT/ET– mere days before the Cannabis Act’s final vote in the Senate!
As Bob plainly states in the series trailer, “Am I breaking the law for assisting and helping people? Yup. I am. At any moment, I could get arrested and go to jail.”
Narrated by MadTv’s Will Sasso, Bud Empire is a journey through a billion dollar industry, with everything from hidden grow-ops, cash, and bulletproof houses.
