The Raw Cannabis Juice Shot

Cheers. I am taking my raw cannabis shot with a squeeze of lemon this morning. The citrus cuts the strong flavor of the cannabis.

Something to note, that you don’t see in the video, is that I followed my juice shot with a hot drink that has coconut oil in it. The fat helps the body absorb the nutrients and cannabinoids in the juice shot.

This week I am focusing on stress relief amidst a full work schedule. The goal is to focus on my meditation practice and stay present with the people I am with in order to take in everything that is happening around me.

May you have a great week as well.

Thank you for tuning in!

Medical Cannabis Lobby Day In Olympia With Ah Warner Of Cannabis Basics

While attending the 2015 Medical Cannabis Lobby Day in Olympia, Washington, I had the chance to talk with Ah Warner CEO of Cannabis Basics, a  Seattle-based company that makes cannabis topicals.

Ah was in the State Capital representing Americans for Safe Access and lobbying for the big medical marijuana bills that will potentially pass this legislative session. She was also there drumming up support for SB5493, a new topical bill that would allow for the sale of cannabis health and beauty aids in any store in the state without need for a special license.

SB5493 distinguishes cannabis health and beauty products from marijuana which means that products that are made with less than .3% THC will be able to be made and sold everywhere.

The passage of this bill would vastly affect her cannabis topical business, currently only available to distribute to medical marijuana shops in Washington.

Your Assignment: Write About Sexism In Cannabusiness

2014.98

One of my work assignments for the week was to write about sexism in the cannabis industry. Dang, not a topic that I would have picked but I accepted thinking it would be easy. It was not easy. It took me 4 days to squeeze out less than 400 words, sweating over the idea that I might be sending anything negative into the world.

Have I had to deal with sexism in the cannabis industry? Totally. I don’t know a woman who hasn’t had to deal with it. That being said, I think dealing with it requires you to come from a place of personal empowerment.

Here is the full article…Thanks for reading.

Sexism In Cannabusiness

Sexism in the workplace is probably one of the least sexy things to have to talk about, and yet, it is a topic that comes up for women of all industries including those in cannabis.  While sexism may be an uncomfortable topic it is something, especially as a woman, that is hard to avoid.

Let’s face it, sex is used to sell pretty much everything and it is common in our society for women to be objectified in print. Open any cannabis related magazine and you will see multiple examples of beautiful, young, women in sexy poses matched with the latest products for sale.  How does this imagery affect us, our business, and our industry?

In the male-dominated cannabis industry, it is common to be the only female in the lunchroom and have to endure hearing sexist jokes, unprofessional sexual innuendos, inappropriate invites, and a general level of social unsophistication.

While one area of focus might be on men or society’s influence as the culprits, we as women play an important role in changing negative sexism around us. As business owners we are able to set social policies that do not tolerate inappropriate sexual conduct. As women we can respond to unwanted sexism from an empowered place and teach those around us how we want to be treated with a grace that still allows for business to exist. But how?

What is an effective way to react to sexism in the workplace when you encounter it? Is it good to react and speak up against it or hold your tongue in silence and let the moment pass?

How can we as women and business owners stand taller in our power to not allow the sexism that we are exposed to on a regular basis, negatively affect us, or our business environment? Not only that, how can we lead our industry to hold a higher standard of how we depict and treat women?

On Saturday, January 24th at the Red Lion Hotel in Bellevue, Washington the MJBA Women’s Alliance warmly welcomes Betty Aldworth, Executive Director for Students for Sensible Drug Policy as its keynote speaker. Together with leading women of the cannabis industry she will conduct an open and honest discussion of Sexism In The Workplace.  All women are welcome.

Tickets for this day long event to unite leading women in the legal marijuana industry from Eastern and Western Washington are available online.

My Year With MJBA

2014.98

2014 ended up being a very full year for me. I got a job in the legal cannabis industry with the Marijuana Business Association. I have to say that being part of MJBA has been a little life adventure all in itself.

While I often get to be part of their events, a large portion of what I do for MJBA is done from the computer in the comfort of my home. Being able to work (in my pajamas) regardless of how I am feeling has been appreciated on those ‘spoonie’ days when there was no way I could have left my house.

Since before the summer I have been getting up almost every single morning at 4:20am as part of my self-imposed work schedule. While this may sound like hell to some people, I’ve been able to build a nice, gentle routine around getting up early to exercise, hydrate, meditate, and medicate before starting work at 5:30am. I actually like it.

2014 was the year that my face publicly became attached to cannabis.  Up until last year I had been keeping my identity somewhat anonymous. That was SO last year. This year my face has been in magazines, on the news, on videos, and endless event pictures now plastered all over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube and MJ News Network. It has been amazing to be out there, part of the cannabis industry, documenting my experiences along the way.

More than anything else, this year I found a new tribe at MJBA- a group of smart, ambitious, lovers of cannabis. Thank you MJBA for a wonderful 2014!
