Cannabis was my lifeline. It allowed me to find a moment of calm in times of overwhelm. It was the only way I could build an appetite as I went through the seemingly ever-changing prescriptions and dosages. As a happy (and unexpected) side effect, it provided me with a small tight-knit community of other ‘stoner students,’ who inspired me to come home to myself.
Ultimately, cannabis gave me the ability to put my health into my own hands. It allowed me to break down the mental barriers to my own healing that I didn’t realize were there. The icing on the edible? I was able to come home to myself and figure out what really lit my fire. Forever intrigued by human optimization and research, I developed skills to manage stress as it comes rather than modern society’s idealized independence and constant hustle + burn out cycle. This has ultimately led me to get super serious with self care, home into my creativity (something I didn’t know existed) and own my story- both light and dark.
After a great deal of time processing, analyzing, reflecting, and self experimentation, I am a proud supporter and activist for plants over pills and consciousness over conformity. With my Blazed and Amused lifestyle brand and shop, I hope to reach others who might need a little life lift in the form of a self care time out, or those who already made the decision to include cannabis into their routine but may be struggling with apathy, overwhelm, or straight up canna-confusion. Together, we can absolutely flip the script, take charge of our mental health + wellbeing and elevate the conversation to change the outdated views on cannabis.
Our girl Mary Jane isn’t a cure all, but hey, a little TLC, THC or CBD can do a body (and mind) a lot of good! She sure made a cannabis activist out of me!
These days you can find me:
-soaking up the sun (and the moon, for that matter), hiking around Lake Constance, (aerial) yoga, cat mommin’ and book wormin’!
-diggin’ my day job creating content + resources to empower my blazed babes to manage their Mary Jane Mindset and find their flow
-hustlin’ hard deep in research, writing + creating to continuously spread awareness on sustainable mental health and wellness habits (don’t worry, my UNhustle is equally as important). being a cannabis activist is like a whole way of life for me.
-challenging convention by promoting empathy through connection, actually talking about my stuggles and wandering as often as possible
