Olivia has chosen to gift the feeling of wellness through her brand Kush Queen and is using her voice to advocate for something that matters. Truly an inspiration to all. Here’s what she had to say about her advice for budding Cannapreneurs.

      “The greatest lesson I’ve learned in my journey in the cannabis industry is the priceless value of being seen. This plant has allowed me to be seen and to pass it on and see others. ... Other than the 18-35 white male stoner, most people's cannabis experience has been invisible, not unlike their own personal narrative. When you see all types of people with differing beliefs and life paths seeing themselves in your brand- you have done something more powerful than marketing.”

      Women of Cannabis: How CBD saved Stacy London

      Stacy London is an American stylist/fashion consultant, author, and magazine editor known primarily for her time as co-host on What Not to Wear, a reality television program that featured wardrobe and appearance makeovers. After graduating from Vassar College, London started her career as a fashion editor at Vogue and transitioned into being a stylist for celebrities and designers. She moved into television by co-hosting What Not to Wear with Clinton Kelly, and doing fashion reporting for Access Hollywood, The Early Show, and the Today Show. From 2009–2010, she was a celebrity spokesperson for Pantene, Woolite, Dr. Scholl's, and Riders by Lee. She co-owns Style for Hire and is the creative director of Westfield Style.

      Right off the bat, we know she’s an empowered woman or rather an ‘evolutionary woman’ as she calls it. “To not feel any relationship to those women that I see as women in their 50s means that we're headed in a new direction. Age is becoming more and more irrelevant. It needs to be redefined and looked at for women specifically because we've internalized so much of a male gaze that we don't even realize that our thoughts about ourselves aren't our own thoughts.” She says as she describes her book ‘The Evolutionary Woman’. She hasn’t been married or doesn’t have any kids and says she doesn’t feel 49 at all! With a free-spirited mindset like hers, it’s no surprise that she loves the evolutionary elixir CBD.

      “I had a really bad experience with surgery because I was on such an inhumane level of oxycontin. I was wearing a huge brace and terrified to leave the house.” She begins to describe why she turned to CBD. “I felt like I was floating over my body. I couldn't feel anything. I didn't really talk. Everybody thought I was fine because I was just like, “Mm-hmm.” I don't remember anybody I saw. I don't even remember who came to the hospital. I didn't ask for water or food. Everybody just assumed I had eaten or had something to drink. I was just like a vegetable.” She adds. In the quest to get off the harmful Oxytocin that doctors were pumping into her, she turned to CBD.

      “The thing is, CBD does not take away pain completely, which is a godsend because you can't hurt yourself if you feel some pain when you try to do something. So it kept the edge off the pain but kept me alert enough not to fall down the stairs. I understand why, if you are having real emotional turmoil, you would want to feel nothing. Painkillers just deaden everything. But I hate them, so this was a revelation to me. The recuperation was so hard but I know it would’ve been much harder without it.” She elaborates.

      What an inspiring story! Truly warms the heart to see someone benefit so greatly from CBD. It’s still women’s month, so if you want to get started on your journey or know someone who needs it, use our code WMN10 and get started right away!

      Women of Cannabis: Kristen Bell loves her CBD self-care routine!

      Kristen Bell is an American actress best known for her roles in Bad Moms, Frozen, The Boss and more. Kristen is an advocate for mental health and is very open about her struggles with mental health on social media and on interviews. Bell has grown to love the healing effects of CBD over the last 2 years and continues to be vocal about her support for CBD. “This pandemic was when I needed CBD in my life the most,” says the actor “the goal was to provide a way to turn down the volume of your life.”

      Kristen Bell fell so much in love with CBD that she started her own line of CBD with hemp extract called Happy Dance that is vegan, cruelty-free and clean. She says CBD improved her life in many ways. She recalls rubbing it on her shoulders after a long day at work and loving it immensely. Her product line is to die for and looks pretty amazing in packaging adorned with bright and upbeat colours to represent a happy state of mind. The key to her line is making it universal and unisex – something her husband or any man would love. This meant getting into details like avoiding fruity scents. “I wanted to make it as simple as possible, so it wouldn't challenge other scents if I want to put on something after.”  She says as she describes her line of CBD. If you’re someone who  needs to pay attention to their mental health (as most of us do), having a routine where you can indulge in some self-care with CBD which further elevates your mood can go a long way. Just the act of pampering yourself is an instant pick-me-up. “Having that 10 minutes where I can relax feels so good to me.” Kristen Bell elaborates as she speaks about her relationship with CBD.

      Women Of Cannabis: Mandy Moore uses CBD to take her higher

      People may have a number of different uses for CBD such as to fight inflammation, alleviate mood, decrease stress, anxiety, insomnia and more. However, Mandy Moore uses CBD for something super quirky! Mandy Moore is just one of those singers who fit seamlessly into an acting career. She has come a long way since her debut single Candy and has starred in a number of blockbuster hits such as a Walk To Remember, Tangled, Hotel Noir and more and is currently best known for the hit TV show This Is Us. Being a huge celebrity comes with a lot of stress. It means long working hours, tons of interviews and daunting red carpets. And this is where CBD comes in.

      When you’re someone with such a busy schedule, looking for natural ways to sustain your energy levels becomes a huge priority. Especially with being a woman and a mom in the industry, you’re juggling a whole lot of tasks and responsibilities and if any of us find ourselves in this circumstance, we sure could use a little help – with no side effects of course. So how did Mandy Moore discover CBD? Here’s what she had to say about that: “I always try to choose really comfortable shoes, because as I’ve gotten older, I just can’t hack being in heels for an extended period of time. Last year I thought I had gone for a pair of comfortable heels, but by the end of the night I was in so much pain I felt like I was walking on glass, so I kind of ended the evening early…. Although honestly, I’ll find any excuse for an early night. This year I’m trying some CBD oil on my feet, which my stylist recommended. I asked her if there was some kind of numbing cream, and she was like, ‘No! Try CBD Oil.’ So it could be a really exciting evening! I could be floating this year.” What a unique and functional way to use CBD! So ladies, one way you can make high heels much more bearable is through CBD. The next time you have somewhere to go looking flawless in heels, you can feel pretty amazing too with a little CBD.
