As we approach the holidays, it is a time of year where we reflect on the past year and contemplate on the things we are grateful for.
I recently fell sick bringing me to the point of near death, and never before in my life did I think I would be so grateful just to be alive. I knew ambition, happiness, perseverance, stillness, acceptance and drive, but only now do I know what it’s like to have extreme gratitude just to be able to breath, to be able to drink water and to be able to eat solid food. Life is fragile and short. If you don’t have your health, you have nothing at all.
I want to thank every single person that contributed and helped with the Infused Expo in October. The support system around me, my friends at Women Grow, the vendors, speakers and attendees made the event a great success in education and networking. I truly could not have done it without the help of everyone involved, especially Keiko Beatie.
My mission and journey in cannabis is to educate, spread the word, knowledge and light on the benefits of the amazing plant known as cannabis sativa. It is a mission and calling that many have heard me say along the way, “Cannabis chose me, I didn’t choose cannabis.”
There have been many ups and downs, and I am filled with overwhelming gratitude for those that have stood by my side and supported the cause along the way.
With the stigma of cannabis finally beginning to subside and legalization taking place, the revolution and movement is indeed making a difference in our society today.
The future of cannabis is here. Cannabis will eventually positively impact and change our entire way of life. One day, there will be a generation that never knew what it was like for cannabis to be illegal. One day, our roads, infrastructure and fuel will all be made of hemp, and petroleum products will be a thing of the past.
It is time to learn, share and grow. Finding your place in the cannabis industry may not be easy if you’re just getting in now, but we are witnessing the first new industry emerge since the tech boom 30 years ago.
This is an exciting time to be alive, and I am so grateful to be alive. I thank everyone for their continued readership and support for Edibles List Magazine and EdiblesList.com. We founded our company to help self-regulate an industry that had no regulations. Now that day is finally here.
Have a safe a Happy Holiday Season!
