You know her, you love her, and during Women’s History Month, we had to sit down with our favorite historical lady- Cannabis herself.

Q & A with Cannabis
What are you most proud of?
My versatility. There’s really nothing I can’t do. From creating ship sails, ropes and food to getting people high af, I’m a one stop shop for anything you need. Keep me by your side and together we’ll go far and soar high!
What’s something most people would be surprised to know about you?
That you’ve only scratched the surface of my potential. I’m not a miracle drug, but I am damn close.
I’m a multi-receptor target, meaning I work with different targets in your body, depending on where you need me most. I give your endocannabinoid system a big boost, helping you feel better, work better, and sleep better.
I have over 100 cannabinoids, all with their own effects. You know my work with THC and CBD, but you’re really only seeing the beginning of everything I’m capable of.
What do you like most about yourself?
There’s no one else like me! From my leaves and buds to the fibers in my stalk, no one else can do what I do. I’m beautiful, iconic, and God-sent.
How would your friends describe you?
I’m down for anything. My friends would say I’m always there when you need me and I’m good at judging what you need. We can chill on the couch, go on an adventure, or cook something delicious – whatever you want.
You know I keep busy!
These last couple years have been crazy busy for me, and I don’t plan on slowing down any time soon. I’ve got projects in the works across the world with new and exciting things unfolding every day. I don’t want to spoil too much, so just keep an eye on where Veronica goes- she’s always hot on my trail!
How are you celebrating Women’s History Month?
Women are incredible, but consistently under-appreciated and under-represented. I celebrate women every day, by helping them deal with problems modern medicine has largely ignored.
Women have been turning to me for help with period pain and menopause for hundreds of years. I was even there to help Queen Victoria during her time of the month! But these days it’s easier than ever to get my assistance, whether that’s with lubrication, vaginal suppositories, topical creams, or a good old-fashioned smoke sesh.
I also help women carve out time for themselves, to tend to their needs and prioritize themselves. When you feel good, you can show up better for the people you love.
Of course, I can’t pass up the opportunity to shout out all of my amazing women in cannabis working hard and changing the world. Don’t let the assholes get you down- my industry is not going to be white, male dominated!
Happy Women’s History Month! Who are your favorite women in cannabis?
