This Sunday we chatted with Tammy Pettigrew, AKA The Cannabis Cutie, self proclaimed mom, cannabis entrepreneur, and cannabis educator.
Hey Tammy! Tell us about your earliest memory of cannabis?
One of my earliest memories of cannabis was when I lived in an apartment complex, and went to the complex’s laundry room to switch my clothes over to the dryer. When I walked into the room, it was super smokey and the smell was oddly familiar! I learned when I was an adult that there were members in my household that consumed cannabis and that’s why the smell was so familiar.
What does your perfect Sunday look like?
The perfect Sunday to me is getting lost in a really good book, taking a walk in nature, and consuming cannabis all in-between!
Do you ever use cannabis when making art?
Always! I had the pleasure of going to a “toke and paint” event and loved that I was able to openly consume cannabis while I created. Even when I write, I always make sure to take a toke. When I consume with intention, It helps open my mind and release any stress that may be in my body.
What’s your preferred consumption method? What activities do you enjoy pairing with your high?
My preferred consumption method is joints! There’s something about the ritual of being able to touch the flower, smell it, and roll it that is soothing. I also love the way cannabis smoke smells (probably nostalgia from my childhood, ha!)
If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?
I would love to share a joint with Snoop Dogg. He is a cannabis icon, and grew up listening to his music. I put that on my bucket list when I was introduced to cannabis in college, and I truly believe it will happen one day! I have so many questions for him.
Which artist are you really excited about right now?
I’m always excited about the art Jhene’ Aiko produces. She’s a great writer, poet, and singer. Her 2020 Deluxe Album, Chilombo, has been on repeat since it dropped. Jhene’s song “I’m Tryna Smoke,” has been an anthem of mine lately. And the remix includes the one, the only, Snoop Dogg. It’s an instant smoker classic in my book.
What gets you excited about the cannabis industry?
The idea that others have an opportunity to join a brand new industry and create something of their own, gets me excited about the cannabis industry! This industry is in its infancy, which means the rules are being written right now! Anyone can join this industry and be successful. Whatever skill someone has, whether it’s writing, digital or interior design, research, speaking, marketing, teaching, there is a place for everyone and their skill set.
If you could give one piece of advice to the entire world, what would it be?
My advice would be to go after what fuels that fire within you, even if others don’t understand. I think so often others make decisions that are expected of them, without thinking about how it really makes them feel. Fight for you and for what you want. Chances are, if you’re chasing that thing that you are passionate about, you are on the right path.
