So, what have you been up to lately?
I have just been making the best medical cannabis products I can and doing lots of deep self-work … I feel the better that I feel in my body the better medicine I can make for others. Lots of angel work which is work I don’t get paid for but is out of the goodness of my heart — like delivering phoenix tears etc.
General inspirations for how you live your life?
Inspirations for how I live my life are all about feeling good, taking care of myself and others, eating healthy food, listening to great music and trying my best to enjoy life in this turbulent time. I believe we live in a time where many small acts of self-care can help make these times more bearable. We are subjected to so much that we don’t have a choice about and so it’s our choice to engage in a magnitude of self-care tasks. Nature walks, coconut oil pulling, healthy foods, and good time with friends.
How do you feel about Cannabis?
Cannabis is my life, it always has been and always will be! I believe so much in this plant and I have seen miracle after miracle and peoples’ lives changed so many times. It’s an honor and a blessing! What a gift.
How much time per day do you spend on cannabis?
I spend all day every day on cannabis, LOL, it is my absolute life and my active service for the universe.
Any advice for someone who would like to do something cannabis-related for a living?
My advice for anyone who would like to do cannabis related work is to develop a solid relationship with the plant. Cannabis is truly personal and unless you’ve experienced it many different ways it can be hard to create medicines for people or understand peoples’ needs. My advice is to pick one thing that you really love and you want to focus on and do your very best to use the best ingredients possible.
How do you feel about edibles?
My feelings about edibles are that they are a very effective way to medicate especially if someone is on a budget or needs to be discreet. They’re also extremely effective for patients who need a lot of medication as they last so much longer and cycle through your vital organs giving you relief on a whole new level. Edibles are very powerful and something that should be respected and taken seriously, always start with a small amount and work your way up.
What do you think would happen if an elderly woman fed a tray of hash brownies to a pack of squirrels?
I definitely don’t think the squirrels would die… They might pass out for a long long time, unless the chocolate kills them! So many times the dangers are with other ingredients but not the cannabis.
How much coffee is too much coffee?
There is no such thing as too much coffee! As long as it’s organic… I try to limit myself to two per day though. Every morning I enjoy my beautiful delicious organic coffee and I truly do enjoy it.
What song comes to mind when you think about drugs?
I guess “Lucy in The Sky with Diamonds.”
What’s a groupie?
A groupie is somebody who groups around someone that inspires them! A fan or a supporter — someone who is greatly inspired by you.
How do you feel about Feminism?
I feel feminism gets really bad rap… and I feel that now is a great time for women to come together and stand with strength and creation. I don’t necessarily identify with being a feminist but I think I probably am. I love to be a woman, I love to inspire others and I love knowing that I can do anything my mind is put to.
What do you think the secrets to happiness are?
I believe the secrets to happiness are counting your blessings. Also eating good food, exercising regularly and remembering that your thoughts and words are really important and what you say and think does matter. Best to feel your feelings as you process them, to transmute them and do your work right then and there, instead of letting things build up. Also, important to always remember even when life has knocked you down, the universe has your back and this “too shall pass.”
When do you think humans should be really brave?
Humans should be really brave all the time. Such a beautiful reminder to remember our strength. We are capable of so much more than we believe.

I would love to work on a project with Thinx or another organization that helps women in need.
Women you think are amazing?
I think that all women are amazing.

How many cats are too many cats, for one human to live with?
The question — no such thing!
Where do you think Stoner Heaven is?
Northern California! There’s a reason we grow the best trees! It’s not by chance and it’s not by accident.
Where should stoners visit in your city?
Stoners should definitely visit a whole bunch of different dispensaries, the beach, and all the wonderful restaurants we have.
What do you want in return for dedicating your life to cannabis?
All I want is for people to enjoy our products! Knowing that I’m helping people is what really makes me feel good and I’m super grateful.
