Ask Me Anything

    What was your first experience with weed like? Where were you?

    My first experience was when I was at a party in college. It immediately made me feel more relaxed and euphoric. I've been a fan ever since.

    What is the most memorable high you've ever had?

    My most memorable high occurred when I was in Barbados. I smoked cannabis and went snorkeling at the beach. In between watching the waves roll in, I got to see so many fish and coral. It was awesome.

    What's the most interesting relationship you've formed due to cannabis?

    I've formed a relationship with cannabis as a daily supplement. I see it as a vitamin to consume daily to stimulate my endocannabinoid system, promote overall health and wellness, and to keep me seizure-free. As I've formed this relationship with cannabis and shared my story, I've also formed very meaningful relationships with other consumers.

    Has the stigma around weed personally affected you or your work/relationship with friends and family?

    I'm from Missouri and it was illegal during the time I consumed there. The stigma was very real and it was associated with reckless drug usage and the typical lazy stoner stereotype. After I left my successful career in finance and moved to Colorado, I began working on a cannabis farm and surrounded myself with those impacted by the plant in a positive way like myself. It was eye-opening. It made me realize I want to help make this plant available for everyone and show how it can be beneficial for people and our planet.

    Do you have rituals with cannabis? Does it vary at home vs on-the-go?

    I enjoy consuming cannabis with my husband and friends, but my daily ritual involves smoking a bowl of cannabis with my morning coffee to start my day.

    What's the most crucial quality of a great cannabis product for you?

    I like my cannabis products to be as natural and organic as possible. Pesticide and herbacide-free products are crucial for quality in my opinion.

    What do you do when you get too high?

    I rarely consume enough to get too high. If I get too high, it's because I've consumed too many edibles, in which case I will eat something with a high fat content, take a shower, or take a nap.

    What would you tell someone close to you if they were going to use cannabis for the first time?

    First of all, good for you! Start slow and take notes of the effects and products consumed and how they make you feel.

    What is the one piece of advice you would tell someone walking into a dispensary for the first time?

    Prepared to be in awe because there are so many products you can choose from. If buying flower, choose by smell versus THC content. Your nose knows!
