Sundays With…Sackville & Co.

We are so excited to be bringing back our series, “Sundays with…” featuring conversations with badass cannabis leaders & glass ceiling breakers. It only seemed fitting to kick off this series with one of our favorite cannabis accessories brands, Sackville & Co. Not only are they known for their beautiful accessories like their signature gold grinder and their honest conversations about the cannabis industry, but also for pushing to end the stigma around cannabis and those who choose to partake. Without further ado, we’d love to introduce you to Hayley Dineen & Lana Van Brunt, co-founders of Sackville & Co.


SG: Hi Hayley & Lana! We are so excited to chat with you. What is your earliest memory of cannabis? 

Hayley: My first memory of cannabis was a high school girls sleepover where we all got incredibly stoned, raided my best friend’s dad’s cantina, and passed out watching whatever VHS was in the basement. It was great – but also completely opposite of what my experience with cannabis is now.


Lana: Oh man, this is blurry for sure, but my first memory of cannabis was when I was probably in junior high. I think one of the older girls invited me to hang out with her and her friends one day – which meant just loitering behind the junior high school – but all the same, a damn honor, so best believe I jumped at it.  As we stood around, they lit up a joint and started passing it around. When it got to me I probably pretended to be cool enough to know what I was doing but as soon as I took a hit I immediately began hacking up a lung, needless to say, my cover was blown. I think that one hit had me so high I ended up hiding at the top of the slide platform and just waiting it out while everyone else down below continued on loitering. I still use that move to this day, if it’s not the vibe, I’m out!

SG: I think all of us have had one of those relatable nightmare experiences with cannabis when we were young. Can you describe what your perfect Sunday looks like? 

Hayley: My perfect Sunday would revolve around being somewhere new. I love to travel and explore new places. I am at my happiest when I’m lost in a new city or exploring a craft or antique market. I love to have a little smoke sesh and just wonder. 
Lana: Too much routine makes me crazy, so the perfect Sunday will look different depending on my vibe. I do love getting up really early, making coffee, and watching super trashy TV. That may sound chaotic to some, but I swear it’s the best. I feel like it’s like having dessert for breakfast, you need to do it every once in a while to remind yourself «you da boss» and rules are for suckers.

SG: Sunday is a state of mind, and sometimes you just need a little refresh no matter what that looks like for you. And of course a little smoke sesh. What’s your favorite way to partake in cannabis? 

Hayley: I personally love joints, always have. I am currently really enjoying the variety of pre-rolls on the market whether it’s rolled with some hash or terpene misted, I like that pre-rolls are coming in more varieties these days.
Lana: I go in phases here too. I’ve been an only edibles girl, I’ve gone through vaping phases but now I’m in a rolling-my-own joints phase. It’s such a rewarding experience to roll your own joint and have it not look cray.

SG: Pre-rolls have definitely been taking over the market, but we love a good hand-rolled joint at home too. What’s your dream blunt rotation? 

Hayley: Cher, Rihanna, Beyonce.

Lana: OMG, everything Hayley said.

SG: Okay, let’s be honest, that might be the coolest smoke circle ever. Which stigma around cannabis do you wish could become normalized?

Hayley: I hope all the stigma around cannabis fades soon, it’s frustrating to feel you need to justify your choices to consume cannabis. Personally, I have realized there is a massive stigma around motherhood & parenthood since becoming a parent myself. I think it’s absurd that parents, and mothers in particular, are judged for their consumption of cannabis. No one judges a mom for having a glass of wine at the end of the night or questions their ability to be a responsible parent (which they also shouldn’t) but society still seems uncomfortable with cannabis and parenthood – hoping that’s coming to an end!
Lana: Although I don’t have a child, I echo what Hayley says here about parenting and cannabis – let women choose what is right for their bodies and their lives period. However, in my day-to-day life I mostly experience the gap between productivity/success and cannabis. There’s still a stigma around using cannabis daily and your perceived ability to be successful. It’s nonsense. In the same vein as people not judging professionals who drink daily, it’s a part of corporate culture even, and yet cannabis elicits a cause for concern in an individual’s ability to perform. Cannabis allows me to manage immense levels of stress in a productive and healthy way. Microdosing has been an incredibly important part of my mental health and I’m ready for the world to move towards that mindset, we’d all be better off for it!

SG: We totally agree. Consuming cannabis should not define your parenting abilities. Parents deserve to be able to relax too, whether that’s a glass of wine or an edible, there shouldn’t be any shame around that. We are so tired of the “lazy stoner” stereotype, and we’re so glad that there are others in the industry who are trying to show that you can be a productive and successful person that also partakes in cannabis. Thank you both so much for spending time with us today. It was an honor to collab with two badass women in the cannabis industry!

Sundays with Fashionkush

Today we had the pleasure of chatting with Erica Stolman Dowdy, the founder of fashion/lifestyle brand Fashionkush. Erica has been in the content game for over 10 years and is also the co-founder of blog design company, blog-doo. Read on to learn all about Erica’s ideal Sunday, cannabis innovation and her best advice for those breaking into the cannabis space.


Hey Erica! Could you introduce yourself.

I’ve always been an avid cannabis consumer, and my favorite person to enjoy a joint with is my Mom. About 2 years ago, over a joint (of course), we came up with the idea for our newest baby – Fashionkush. My Mom is my *amazing* business partner, and our goal with the Fashionkush brand is to bring chic to the world of cannabis, do our part in helping to shatter the stigma around cannabis, as well as educate our audience on the racial disparities in marijuana arrests as well as in the industry as a whole.

What’s your earliest memory of cannabis?

My earliest memory is probably pretty similar to a lot of other people – it involved an apple, some really bad weed, my best girlfriends… in the back seat of my 1986 Volvo with an Avril Lavigne CD playing in the background.

Oh yes, that sounds super familiar. What does your perfect Sunday look like?

A yummy brunch (preferably a bagel), a good joint, and either a lazy Netflix binge or a picnic on the beach.

Delicious. If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?

This one is always tough for me- but I think Martha Stewart & Snoop Dogg (sorry but they are a package deal these days haha!) would be an epic combo- the weed would be amazing, and I can only imagine what Martha would cook!

Which artist are you excited about right now?

I am gonna be super cliche here and say right now…. Olivia Rodrigo. Mainly because I am just obsessed with all her music…. but I also think she is a smart cookie. There has been some unnecessary *drama* around SOUR, and I just really respect the way she handled things. Also, one more, my girl Chloe Bruderer is an amazing artist. She did all the signage for our wedding and we have some other things planned with her in the near future – her art page is @chloeheartsart.


Good for you. Ha! What gets you excited about the cannabis industry?

The evolution of the industry has been amazing to watch, I love seeing the innovation and sophistication that can now be found when it comes to cannabis products. It’s amazing to see how things have evolved over the years. I’m very excited that people are making more noise in terms of the racial disparities in marijuana arrests. It’s always hard to walk into a dispensary that looks like an Apple store and know people are still serving time for minor marijuana charges (mainly people of color). I highly suggest everyone follow along with the @lastprisonerproject and donate to their amazing efforts. We will be working them on something as well that we are super excited to share with our audience!

If you could give one piece of advice to the entire world, what would it be?

Stay in your lane! In a world where we have access to anyone/everyone’s lives at the touch of our fingertips, it’s so easy to get distracted and to compare your life to someone else’s trajectory (personally and professionally). Put those blinders on and focus on your path. And of course, as we always say at Fashionkush – keep your standards as high as you are 🙂

Thank you Erica! Follow along with Fashionkush on Instagram.

We’re excited to be bringing back Sundays With, kicking things off with Carmen Dicu. We caught up with this Arizona local to chat all things fitness, cannabis and self love.


IMG_7767.jpg

Hey Carmen! Could you introduce yourself?

Hi! I’m Carmen Dicu aka Beastchickk (my alter ego). I’m a retired IFBB Bikini PRO that enjoys the tech world and believes in the power of cannabis. My current goal is to pave the way for women in the tech/robotics industry and to also empower women to be themselves without needing validation from strangers. I was born in Eastern Europe, but migrated and became a US citizen about 2 years ago. It’s been a trip to say the least!

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

My perfect Sunday usually starts with no alarm so I get to sleep in! Followed by a nice wake and bake moment. Sometimes I meditate right after or go outside and lay in the grass or enjoy a warm bath with some incense and rose petals. Once that special moment passes, my Sunday continues with a lot of gratitude and joy towards being able to romanticize my life.

Do you ever use cannabis when making art?

YES I absolutely do. It opens my mind. It opens a creative door which I can only achieve from cannabis and that brings me a lot of joy. I am a lot more comfortable with expressing myself while smoking.

What’s your preferred consumption method? What activities do you enjoy pairing with your high?

I enjoy joints the most, but also vapes. Usually I will smoke a joint on the way to the gym as a preworkout, while I’m taking a bath or when I need to clear my head or when my anxiety sneaks up on me.

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. Yes, I know it’s pretty basic but for me it would be incredible to even be in his presence. I think he is amazing and he has always given me confidence to be myself without caring what the world thinks.

If you could give one piece of advice to the entire world, what would it be?

Remember who you are. Everything you need is already within you. Detach from the outside forces and see the truth behind being a multidimensional being having a human experience.

Sundays with Jaclyn

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we chatted with Jaclyn, a model, creative and new Mom. Read on as we discuss motherhood and cannabis consumption.

Hey Jaclyn! Would you mind introducing yourself?
Hi, my name is Jaclyn. I’m a twenty eight year old mother, model, and creative. Although, I must admit I’ve only recently added “mother” to my list of titles with the recent birth of my daughter this past April. I’ve been an alternative internet model since 2011. I’ve dabbled in a little bit of everything throughout the years including curating local art expos here in Phoenix as well as producing and hosting my own NSFW (not safe for work) stoner food review series, Topless Takeout.

What’s your relationship with cannabis like?
My relationship with cannabis started when I was eighteen through mostly leisure usage. My boyfriend at the time was a pretty stereotypical stoner. He packed a bong for us and turned on Cheech & Chong’s Up In Smoke. Since then, I have come to use cannabis for my mental and physical health and relief too. There’s nothing quite like unwinding in the evenings after running around all day working and feeling like my body aches and mind can both settle properly before going to bed.

How do you think you’ll talk to your kids about cannabis?
Every year we see cannabis being legalized more and more across the country, so I imagine I’ll talk to my daughter about it as soon as she’s old enough to have an understanding and awareness of it. I don’t want her to fear or demonize cannabis the way I did growing up, and I believe the best way to combat that is by educating her on its benefits, its history, and disclosing my usage with her honestly.

Has your attitude towards cannabis changed since becoming a mother?
Since becoming a mother I wouldn’t say my attitude towards cannabis has changed, although my smoking habits/usage has definitely decreased with having a newborn on my hands.

Do you think there’s stigma around motherhood and cannabis?
I do believe there’s still a big stigma around motherhood and cannabis, that somehow its usage makes a mom selfish or irresponsible. I believe cannabis usage while being a mother is a personal choice. In my case, it’s more of a “me time” activity and with a newborn in the household, my “me time” is pretty scarce to nonexistent these days. I’m perfectly okay with it though. Being a mom is a huge adjustment and requires patience and flexibility. I know my “me time” will turn up again down the line even if it looks different than before.

Stay up to date with Jaclyn on Instagram. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mama’s out there!

Sundays With a Pretty Cool Girl

We met with Margaret B (aka @APrettyCoolGirl) a photographer and director originally from the Midwest, now living in California, who’s currently traveling around the US documenting themed “love motels” for her project A Pretty Cool Hotel Tour.


HotelTourPressOnly00010.JPG

Hey Margaret! Tell us about your earliest memory of cannabis?

I was homeschooled and very sheltered as a kid but a babysitter once played Because I Got High by Afroman while we were driving and I felt like I was listening to something in a foreign language. I downloaded the song off of Limewire, memorized the lyrics, and tried to understand what it was talking about. It was probably another decade before I was in the same room as someone actually using cannabis! 

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

Waking up without an alarm, having breakfast at a diner (or making diner food at home during a pandemic), and sitting by a pool or body of water for a couple of hours.

Do you ever use cannabis when making art?

I actually prefer to use it when I don’t have anything to do but…feel. I have tried painting while using though and that was a really nice experience so I’m sure I’ll be branching out.

What’s your preferred consumption method?

My preference is definitely a joint. I started off with edibles and that was too unpredictable for getting the hang of things. I like the slow consumption but more immediate reaction of smoking. I love sitting out by a campfire and looking up at the stars or during the day taking a swim.


ACS_3678.jpg

If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Honestly this quarantine has gone on so long I just want to share a joint with my own friends already!

Which artist are you really excited about right now?

I’m not usually someone who follows fashion closely but lately I’ve been so inspired by people making clothing that speaks to me. I think something about quarantining has taught me about why I wear what I wear, and how much it affects my mood. I’m in love with everything Selkie is making, such a dream! The other company that’s so exciting to see is Neon Cowboys. They just know how to live!

What gets you excited about the cannabis industry?

I avoided cannabis for so long because it felt like such a judgemental space if you didn’t consume. Once I met a few rad women in the industry who were focused on education I felt so welcomed into finding my own path that it really opened that door for me. It’s felt like such a different space now that I’m learning from Roze Volca (she really helped me find my footing), Green Goddess GlowNice Paper and other leaders in that space. It excites me to see education at the forefront and I hope to continue to see that get amplified. The war on drugs has been such a racist and tragic tool in this country and I think it’s especially important for folks like me to understand how many people of color are still in jail for something I’m now allowed to do so openly. That has to change.

If you could give one piece of advice to the entire world, what would it be?

Let love be your motivator and don’t give up hope.

Sundays with the Cannabis Cutie

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.

Keep up with Tammy on Instagram.

Sundays with Savina Monet

Meet Savina Monet, a graphic designer and founder of the Cannabis Workers Coalition. When she’s not working on dope client work, you’ll find her creating cannabis collages that inspire people to take action on issues that are important right now.

What is your earliest memory of cannabis?
Growing up, cannabis was that “funny smell” that hung around my mom’s bedroom or thick on her clothes when I would nestle up close to her. Cannabis in one form or another has been in my family since before I was thought of, usually grown as an ornamental flower in my great grandparents’ backyard. It wasn’t until I was 15 when I smoked my first joint with friends at a party that I was able to put a name to that “funny smell”.

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

Sundays are so sacred to me. I usually reserve my self-care for Sundays which can include a hike through the forest, a scenic drive, or enjoying my safe space with a jay in hand.

Do you ever use cannabis when making art?

Surprisingly, not as often as people would think. I usually medicate in the mornings to fully center myself before the day begins, so by the time I’m creating I am not so out of it that I get distracted. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve lost looking for source material, there are just so many beautiful photos and if I’m not focused on what I’m looking for, it gets out of hand easy haha.


Angela-Davis.jpg

What’s your preferred consumption method? What activities do you enjoy pairing with your high?

Flower Power all the wayyyy. There’s nothing better than being outdoors when you are high and in the Pacific Northwest we are spoiled with endless possibilities.

If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Oh wow, that’s a toughie. I’m going to go back in time and say I’d share a joint with Frida Kahlo. Frida is definitely an inspiration when it comes to mixing political messages with artwork and I’m sure she would have a lot to say about what’s going on in the world today.


Spike-Lee.jpg

What gets you excited about the cannabis industry?

I get excited thinking about the opportunity we have to shape this industry unlike any industry we have seen before. While most signs point to cannabis being another capitalistic cash cow, I have faith that it’s still very young and malleable. If we get the right people in office and purchase from equitable companies, we might be able to turn this industry all the way around and create an open-market where anyone, regardless of color, class, or past-convictions could participate.

If you could give one piece of advice to the entire world, what would it be?

There’s so much to say, but it boils down to one thing: give love and receive love whenever you can.

What do you think the future of cannabis looks like?

In my mind I see farmer’s markets filled with dank, neighbors growing stalks of flower in their backyard, Black and Brown communities medicating without fear of prosecution, I see cannabis looking like just another plant.

Sundays with Tiara Kelly

This weeks Sunday session is with Tiara Kelly, model, stunt performer, dancer, and lover of all things cannabis.

What’s up Tiara! Could you introduce yourself?

Heyyy, I’m Tiara Kelly also known as Barbie! An East Coast non binary icon taking over Hollywood with their beauty, magic and blackness! 

That might be our best intro to date. What’s your earliest memory of cannabis? 

My first time consuming cannabis was during tech week for our dance program and my group went to the woods to smoke. I smoked cigarettes, hookah and black&milds so I wasn’t scared. I remember loving how I felt dancing and doing things so freely! I knew I’d probably indulge again. 

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

A typical Sunday for me is watering all my plants as it’s their official feeding day, making a morning smoothie, playing my good morning playlist, twerking in the mirror with a blunt in hand! 

What’s your preferred consumption method?

I prefer to smoke blunts as I love the rolling process. I feel connected to myself and ancestors as they like tobacco. Sometimes I dump the guts on my altar as offerings or their own cigars. My connection to cannabis and magic is very deep as I feel it centers me to truly listen to the downloads I need to receive.

What do you think the future of cannabis looks like?

The future of cannabis is Black! We are coming back to take up space in many ways outside of the stereotypical “rapper weed”. Also many being released from jail for marijuana charges and ideas that these companies are making profits off today. I would like the industry expand to actively showcase others using it other than hippie white girls taking bong rips. Also, the world being better educated on all aspects of cannabis like THC, CBD, and CBN.

If you could give one piece of advice to the whole world, what would it be?

I would like to tell suggest the world to Honor yourself, live for yourself and love yourself!

Keep up with Tiara on Instagram.

Sundays with Stella Santana

This weekend we kicked it with artist and producer, Stella Santana to chat about how cannabis has influenced her as an artist, and her favorite consumption methods.

Hey Stella! Could you introduce yourself? 

I’m Stella Santana and I make music, my own and I also produce and executive produce for other artists/creative projects.

What is your earliest memory of cannabis? 

Growing up in California, my earliest memory of cannabis is hearing about it in 4th or 5th grade. The boys were talking about wanting to get high, knowing where their parents’ stashes were etc etc. But I didn’t end up smoking my first time until I was about 15 years old. I also grew up listening to a LOT of Bob Marley but it didn’t connect for me when I was young that cannabis was such a huge part of the songs I had memorized all the lyrics to, haha!

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

My perfect Sunday would definitely include me being productive for a little. I like to work on multiple projects at once so making sure I’m always moving them forward in some way, big or small, allows me to enjoy unplugging a lot more. I don’t like having things hanging over my head. Then after, I’d love to be in the sun or go on a nice drive maybe to the beach or up a mountain – I like to be in places that remind me how small I am and how vast the world and universe are 🙂 And of course, I’d pack some joints to smoke with me as well!

What’s your preferred consumption method? What activities do you enjoy pairing with your high?

I’m a smoker all the way! I used to be into the vapes but now I’m super picky and only enjoy a very select few vape brands. I stick to pre rolls when they’re available (mostly when I’m in California, less when I’m in New York) or else I’ve been a good joint roller for years! And I definitely always pair music making with smoking. Basically anything creative! I also enjoy being on drives and smoking – I’m lucky that my husband likes to drive so I can just enjoy the view and be in the moment.

Do you ever use cannabis to help create music?

Yes, always!! Speaking of music, I just dropped a new song which you can listen to here!

If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Definitely Eartha Kitt! She was such a strong woman and she was fearless! That interview where dude asks her if she would compromise for a man and she throws her head back and laughs?!?!? I just– this is truly iconic (even though everyone says that nowadays *eye roll*). I remember the first time I saw that, I was in my 20s and I just felt it so much. I would love to talk to her about creativity, about being a creative woman, about being a creative woman in this industry, omg I would love to spend the whole day with her, puffin’ and expanding my mind and soul!

Which artist are you really excited about right now?

I think we’re in a very interesting time where the world isn’t as escapist as it used to be – we are craving more depth, more human-ness, more substance. It’s been really inspiring to watch all different kinds of creatives emerge for being themselves, for calling out racism, white supremacy, the patriarchy, etc. I’ve started following a lot of new graphic design artists, photographers, musicians, etc. because they’re not trying to be trendy or liked – they’re thinking and speaking outside the norms of society and that inspires the shit out of me. Some of them are Noname, Drielycarter, Supergirlreject, CharlotteparlerAmandasealesDomrobxrts.

What do you think the future of cannabis looks like?

I’m hoping, first and foremost that the millions of people of color who’ve been locked up for possession and selling will be released and their records expunged.

If you could give one piece of advice to the whole world, what would it be?

“There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing you are not the voice of your mind – you are the one who hears it”

Sundays With Mimi Lam

This Sunday we (virtually) hung out with Mimi Lam, badass Canadian cannabis entrepreneur and mastermind behind Superette.

Hey Mimi! Could you please introduce yourself and describe what you do? 

Hi, I’m Mimi! I am a Sagittarius/Ophiuchus and a proud enneagram type 1. Some of you may know me from cannabis brand Superette. I live in Toronto, Canada, and I spend my time building the most fun and badass team out there. I am a stubborn entrepreneur that gets bored way too easily and has a constant case of wanderlust. 


45__D6A7219_SuperetteSummerHill_KRocca.jpg

What is your earliest memory of cannabis? When did you know you wanted to get into the cannabis industry?

In general? I think it was when I caught a whiff of it while walking around downtown Ottawa with my mom as a kid. Many years after that, I started consuming medically and recreationally. 

However, it wasn’t until late 2016 that I wanted to get into the cannabis industry, when there was a real path for legalization across Canada. The opportunity to not only be part of such a monumental regulatory shift, but also the hope of helping push it in the right direction after a history of wrongs was too good to pass. Plus, I love weed, so getting to work in the industry is like a dream come true.

What does your perfect Sunday look like? 

Depends on the season, but I relax by being active. 

In the summer, my perfect Sunday is waking up early for a nice long bike ride with my fiancé, followed by hanging out on our balcony or in the park with a cold bevvy and a joint. 

When the weather’s not great, I stay indoors doing lots of yoga and cooking up a storm. I’ll likely overdo it on making too many desserts, but I can’t deny testing out a new baking recipe.

What’s your preferred consumption method? What activities do you enjoy pairing with your high?

Nothing beats a good joint. Pair it with a nice walk and some good music in my ears? Yes. Please. 

If getting a massage counts as an activity, then also this.


MimiLam_018WEB.jpg

A massage absolutely counts. If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Oooooh that’s such a tough question. Conan O’Brien because that would be hilarious. Plus, I heard he needs a friend.

Which artist are you really excited about right now?

Charlotte Langley, a chef of my dreams and a culinary QUEEN. Aside from simply mastering all things food, I love that she is a champion for sustainability and also cooks with cannabis! 

I am obsessed with Scout Canning, which is a company that Charlotte co-founded and just launched this year. Their commitment to sustainability, from fair workplace compensation to 100% recyclable packaging, sets an incredible standard in the food industry and for all product companies around the world.

What gets you excited about the cannabis industry?

So many things. Probably the top of the list is greater research and acceptance of cannabis by the medical and academic communities. We are so far from understanding the full potential of cannabis! With knowledge comes the potential for the development of products that can be beneficial to so many people in this world. As well, with knowledge comes education and at least a baseline understanding of cannabis in our society, which in turn will lead to normalization – something that I will always fight for and why I am so passionate about being in this industry. 

If you could give one piece of advice to cannabis consumers, what would it be?

Pay attention to what you are consuming, it makes a big difference in helping you understand what you enjoy, what is best for you. For instance, pay attention to the terpene and cannabinoid profiles of flower, rather than simply whether it is indica or sativa. Not only that, pay attention to who had a part in the product that eventually ended up in your hands. As a consumer, you get to vote with your dollars and the onus is on you to educate yourself about the retailers and brands you are buying from. Conscious consumption is important for everything and especially for cannabis.
