Creagen Dow, a working actor known for his roles on “The Big Bang Theory,” “Zoey 101,” and the Geico “Horror Movie Commercial,” among others, started a cannabis business last year: Poke A Bowl.

He makes just one product: an odor-proof, heat-resistant, pet-friendly, ash and resin removing ashtray with a lid. As you might imagine, making this one thing means it’s done right.

In fact, Creagen believes there are no competitors for his ashtray. “I don’t really think of anybody in the tobacco/cannabis ashtray space as a competitor since they don’t have a lid or a cleaning spike thin enough to pierce through every hole in every bowl or pipe, even with a glass screen,” he explained during a recent conversation.

But, how did this actor pivot from media to entrepreneurship? And what has he learned along the way?
