Goodleaf describes themselves as South Africa’s leading source for safe and tested products. Goodleaf has a range of products from vape pens to face cleansers from moisturisers and CBD-infused sparkling water.

Goodleaf teamed up with entrepreneur and model Maps Maponyane for their new monthly podcast. 


The Goodleaf podcast will feature influential and familiar faces in popular culture and in entertainment as Maps dives into the world of CBD with them. Maps will be tackling topics around cannabis and its use in everyday life. 

There will also be honest conversations about success, anxiety, coping mechanisms and self-care rituals, basically unpacking what it means to be a human being. 

The Goodleaf podcast is Maps’s first podcast and he expressed that he is passionate about mental and physical well-being, saying it is an honour for him to host the podcast.  


Maps shares that partnering with Goodleaf was a no-brainer because their goals are perfectly aligned. 

“Our collective aim is to educate people about cannabis, it’s benefits, de-stigmatizing the plant which is often misunderstood, sharing advice on balance and creating a platform where people can view Goodleaf as a companion on their wellness journey.”

He added that he wants people to familiarise themselves with CBD and be inspired by the conversations on the podcast. He also wants people to have an informed opinion about cannabis and its effects. 

Goodleaf’s founder and CEO Warren Schewits explained that through the podcast they hope to focus on the positives and challenges around cannabis.

“We are thrilled to be working with Maps Maponyane to drive these much needed, frank conversations on CBD.” 


The first episode of the podcast is named Planting the Seed for Change. Maps speaks to Schewits and cannabis activist and founder of Hemporium Tony Budden. The three speak about the origin of the cannabis industry in South Africa and unpack the laws and legislation around cannabis.
