Episode 2.21: Guidelines for Becoming an Advocate and Activist

 Hello again! To start things off a bit differently, we decide not to share our favorite discoveries, but instead highlight some great organizations that are effecting serious change. As we move forward to normalization, we as an industry must keep advocacy at the forefront, and figure out how to get involved.

 To that point, we discuss ways you can help fight the continuous damage created by the War on Drugs. You don't have to be seasoned activist or policy maker to fight the good fight!

 

*** We also discuss an awesome giveaway opportunity - an autographed copy of Breaking the Grass Ceiling! Tune into to our bonus episode on 4/20 for the winners, and for an awesome discount code roundup!

 

Interviews:

- We start with Marissa Fratoni, holistic RN and Director of Wellness for Cannamommy.org, who tells us about her journey into the cannabis space. She talks about being a mother in cannabis, and offers some great advice for listeners.

- Next, we talk to Emily Elmen, Director of Infused Product Development at In Good Health, who tells us how making a batch of edibles led to being on the Board of Directors for Massachusetts NORML. She also talks about how her career at In Good Health came to be, and what her job entails.

Episode 2.7 The Importance of Looking at the Whole Plant

 In our 7th episode, we talk about the entourage effect, and the importance of looking at the whole plant. Many of our past guests incorporate the whole plant approach into their businesses, because they are concerned with treating the big picture. We go over the ways you can educate yourself about the compounds, and the reasons why we should know more about them.

 

Interviews:

  • Our first guest is Katie MacBride, editor and writer, who recently wrote a piece for the Daily Beast about parents dealing with Child Protective Services because of CBD. Her work covers these complex issues surrounding parenting with cannabis and is in the process of helping create a documentary that explores the issues further.
  • Next, we have the founder of Meowchemy, Mel Meow. She talks about the full plant CBD MedSpa line of products, the inspiration behind the innovative nature of them, and what inspired the beginning of her business.

 

Beauty with Barb:

 Diana joins Barb as the sisters discuss a shared familial skin condition, and how the Bella line from Altitude Products helps relieve the bumpiness. We also discuss the bath items and products from other lines, and detail how smooth they made our skin.
