The world is open and travel is on! Covid slowed me down a bit in 2020, but by the end of that year, I was back on the road! Travel and cannabis are essential to my life and so my work is essential to my being. My mission on the road is to educate, inform, destigmatize, and highlight amazing people and businesses in the cannabis industry and overall plant medicine space. 

This year, I’ve been all over, and the journey’s continue.  The beginning of the year has been wildly fun and full of learning. The second half is set to be the same. So far, I’ve journeyed to TX, FL, PR, NV, PA, and California’s Emerald Triangle. The journey to this country’s cannabis mecca was such a magical experience. I met, visited, and was hosted by:

  • 8 Mile Farms
  • Kiskanu Dispensary
  • Barrett Farms
  • True Humboldt
  • Booney Acres
  • Sol Spirit Farm & Retreats
  • Mendocino Generations/Arcanna Flowers
  • Herb and Market Humboldt
  • Papa & Barkley
  • Social Nature
  • Humboldt Social
  • Sunboldt Grown
  • Humboldt Soup Company
  • Sweet Leaf Joe
  • Taylor Blake w/ the Emerald Cup
  • Sunnabis
  • Moon Made Farms
  • Flowerdaze Farm

While in PA, this east coast cannabis tour was born. I visited the Lair 420 Social Club in Philadelphia; owned by a husband and wife, operated by a tribe that consists of family and friends, and supported by a beautiful community of people. The Lair is a place that welcomes great vibes and dope energy.

While on site, Sunflower, one of the owners of the Lair and Sunflower Spacecakes, asked me to join her as the feature of her east coast cannabis tour! This tour is like no other that the industry has seen before. We are journey the Atlantic coast and visiting:
