Jonathan Hirsh

Jonathan’s journey with recreational cannabis began in Toronto while studying improv at Second City as a teenager, but his medical journey started in 2005 in California while studying at California Institute of the Arts. Jonathan’s education is in theatre design and directing. He has a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia College, in Chicago. Upon moving back to Canada, Jonathan opened a branded content film and TV company called Floating Island Entertainment.

Jonathan has been a medical cannabis patient for over a decade. Best known for his work @Weedstagram416 on Instagram, he has been nominated for two Canadian Cannabis Awards (‘Influencer’ of the Year and ‘Cannabis Crusader’). As @Weedstagram416, Jonathan has been featured on LIFT’s list of top Instagram ‘Influencers.’

Jonathan operates The Education Station, a company dedicated to spreading awareness of and information on safe cannabis use. From growing practices to making extracts and edibles, The Education Station covers every aspect of cannabis so that your first time consuming is as good as our instructor’s most recent. For the past few years, Jonathan has been consulting with several cannabis brands.
