December tends to be a time of reflection, and despite all the ups and downs of the stock market (and our sanity) over the last 365 days, The Dales Report is chalking it up to a good year—not just for psychedelics, but for our team and our platform.
In 2021, we ramped up our efforts considerably to bring our audience more of what we want to see, welcoming new writers and hosts and covering additional verticals to keep up with the latest market trends. We also worked hard to connect on a deeper level with our audience this year, through new podcasts, more activity on social media, and a handful of contests.
After a year and a half of Zoom meetings, the year brought some fun IRL opportunities our way. The TDR team made trips to Las Vegas and Miami for two of the biggest cannabis and psychedelics conferences of the year, MJBizCon and Microdose: Wonderland, where we finally got to meet the people (and not just pixels) behind so many of the companies we cover from week to week.
The Dales Report wouldn’t be where we are without our audience. Every tweet, like, and share helps get our work in front of more eyeballs, and for a small media company with just a few team members, that goes a long way. Whether you’re a day trader, a self-identifying psychonaut, or a retail investor with a growing curiosity in cannabis or psychedelics, we count ourselves lucky to have you.
To our clients and interviewees: making sense of the capital markets is one thing, but a whole new layer of nuance is introduced in the cannabis and psychedelics industries, where the body of science continues to grow but policy has yet to catch up. We’re grateful to our various guests for the insights they’ve shared with us and for the opportunities we get to look under the hoods of some of the fastest-growing companies in the space.
From all of us at The Dales Report (and the executives who were kind enough to send in video clips), thank you for your support during what has been a challenging year in more ways than one. Wishing you and those you love a safe, peaceful holiday and all the best for 2022.
