This Sunday we hung out with Melissa Mckenna, a yogi, entrepreneur and health enthusiast from Arizona.
Hey Melissa! Introduce yourself.
Hey! I just moved back to AZ after living in Beijing, China for 5 years. While I was living in the far east, I opened a chain of cold-pressed juice stores in China and Hong Kong. I have always been passionate about nutrition and believe nutrients can be a huge aid for healing your body. When it comes to nutrition, I love all things green and include them in every meal. Cannabis is no exception 😉
I currently work for BUTI Yoga and it has been absolutely life changing. This practice is movement medicine and deeply healing.
What’s your earliest memory of cannabis?
My earliest memory of cannabis was at a park in middle school. I did not partake, but most of my friends did. I remember the stigma against cannabis at the time and it makes me laugh now because it couldn’t have been more wrong.
What does “feel good” mean to you?
“Feel Good” to me means being balanced – body, mind, and soul. When you can completely let go of stress and outside factors and really be at peace with your present self.
What does your perfect Sunday entail?
My perfect Sunday includes sleeping in followed by a joint and yoga or hiking with my two teddy bear poodles. I also love a good Sunday Funday!
Do you like to smoke Sativa or Indica?
Indica, I predominately smoke to help me sleep or chill out. I like to read, write, or do yoga after smoking.
If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?
Rihanna, because she is a bad bitch and I love her.
Which artist are you really excited about right now (can be a writer, chef, sculptor, painter, musician, etc) and why?
My favorite artist is Barbara Kruger. I love everything about her work, from the aesthetic to the bold captions. She is so spot on and delivers powerful messages in a beautiful way.
