Life is very short and we have to do what must be done in the now.- Audre Lorde
Today’s episode features a rich conversation that started out as one focused on cannabis as self-care but evolved into an even greater conversation on our community at large.
DeJanae is the founder of Green Goddess Glow—a platform where cannabis, fungi, and other plant medicines are reimagined as wellness tools for sustainable self-care—as well as For Ever Garden, a community garden in South Los Angeles. Her commitment to cultivating a deeper understanding of cannabis and our relationship with it has been a catalyst for transformation and creating space to amplify the voices and experiences of women of color.
In our discussion we spoke about:
The importance of evidence-based information on Cannabis
DeJanae’s journey to the incorporation of cannabis in her selfcare rituals
Various self-care products that use the hemp plant and some of their benefits
Where to start when deciding to incorporate cannabis in your self-care routine
The role of cannabis as a teacher
