Committed to destigmatizing cannabis and promoting social justice within the industry. I'll be providing researched articles, product reviews, personal essays and more! So, what do you think? Are you ready to take this hazy journey with me?
Stone Age Edibles
One of the things that excited me about my cannabis journey was definitely trying edibles. I’ve been able to decipher what product works the best for me while having a lot of fun doing it. For this first product review I’m going to be discussing Stone Age gummies.
We Need to Talk About the Olympics
As you may know a female sprinter named Sha’Carri Richardson was supposed to compete in the Tokyo Olympics this summer but was suspended over a positive cannabis test. Considering that they also banned Soul Caps which are designed for black hair, I think it’s pretty obvious that the Olympics is racist. However, I have a lot more receipts to share.
Why I'm so Interested in Cannabis
I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t always into cannabis. It was mostly because my straight laced parents made it out to be such a taboo substance. When I had tried it from time to time in my hometown, I would get very paranoid that I was going to get caught and arrested and I would have a terrible time. I know that most of the paranoia stemmed from my anxiety but it was also true that I didn’t know what strain I was smoking. In fact, I didn’t even know strains existed until I moved to the west coast.
Cannabis Prohibition & Racism
Finally cracking a smile since the inauguration, I heard that this past April my home state of New York made me proud by finally legalizing cannabis. Some may sigh with relief that they can peacefully continue their morning wake and bake routine without worrying about getting pulled over by the police and getting slapped with excessive fines or jail time. I, like many others, choose to look towards the legalization as steps towards racial justice. But before we can delve into what that means for the future of this plant, we need to discuss the propaganda of a disgusting racist named Harry Anslinger.
