Let’s be real… Before legalization, I was just happy if the plug had some good weed.  I kill plants… I’ve had horrible luck growing my own Cannabis.

Erykah Badu

April 3, 2024
Oh my, my, my… I’m feeling high… STILL flying incredibly high off the personal time I got to spend with the one and only, The Godmother of Soul: Erykah Badu.  When I heard Erykah was going to be presenting an award at the Women’s Canna Awards, I had to gather myself up and not completely […]

Quotes from CannaWomen

I love a good quote… A heartfelt thought from someone I admire or consider smarter than me? *Chefs Kiss* Love it. People look to quotes like these for inspiration. When they are feeling down, when they want to know someone else has felt the same way. We look for quotes about things like life, survival, […]

Cannabis Beverages

Being social, and by-proxy, social drinking, is a big part of human history… a part of our nature really. And every year, more and more people are trading in […]

Looking Back on 2023

December 29, 2023
2023… Let’s be real… You’ve been a lot.  Lot of ups and downs… Which means that, overall, this has definitely been a year of growth!
