    Why Extraction is a BIG Deal - Jerrik Keller

    Why Extraction is a BIG Deal - Jerrik Keller

    Since the beginning of our podcast, we have used care and discretion constantly searching for resources and collaboration with the very best in the cannabis industry.

    Ishqa Hillman - Canna Boss Babes | Managing Life's Speedbumps w Cannabis

    Ishqa Hillman - Canna Boss Babes | Managing Life's Speedbumps w Cannabis

    Ishqa Hillman is the founder and CEO of The Canna Boss Babes.  In this episode we discuss some difficult life transitions and how the use of cannabis to cope with anxiety and stress helped her not only cope, but thrive and fly. Ishqa has gone on to become a leading advocate and educator in her local Southern California community as well as nationally via Instagram and Facebook. 

    The Canna Boss Babes is an entrepreneurial support platform created for women and open to all. 

    Everyone's a Babe! 

    The cannabis industry is one of the hardest in which to survive, much less thrive. As a coach in the space, Ishqa found one thing being repeated - women want to work with women. 

    In late 2019 she built a powerful network of Southern California women-based businesses partnering with The Suave Life to bring wellness events providing education on a variety of topics related to not only cannabis but empowerment and life skills. 

    With the onset of COVID in early 2020 The Canna Boss Babes have utilized Instagram to hear and share the stories that make up our cannabis community. With babes all over the world and of all sexes (everyone's a babe) come join us as we educate, entertain and build relationships. 

    Instagram Lives are scheduled M-F 9am and 7:10pm. Join Ishqa and her babes!

    Free Advice from the Expert - Leaf411

    Free Advice from the Expert - Leaf411

    Join us for our chat with Katherine Golden - RN and CEO of Leaf 411.  We loved her take on cannabis and Covid - she helps us cut through the claims and get to the facts. 

    Leaf411™ is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit operating a FREE cannabis-trained nurse hotline. Our mission is to provide education and directional support to the general public about the safe use of legal cannabis (marijuana & hemp). Our team of cannabis trained nurses are passionate about helping our community access balanced education about their legal cannabis use while also improving public perception of the cannabis industry.

    Everyone has questions about cannabis. Are hemp and marijuana the same thing? Will CBD get me high? Do I have to smoke it? Do I have to get high to get the benefits? Where do I even begin?
    For many people, it can be hard to find specific answers in the abundance of cannabis information out there. Getting educated on cannabis is like learning a new language, it’s always easiest to learn with the help of someone already fluent (ideally a medical professional). Leaf411 allows you to take the guesswork out by speaking to a cannabis trained nurse.
    Leaf411™ believes that knowledge is power, especially when it comes to legal cannabis use. We live in a world where many people use the internet to self-diagnose and treat themselves, especially when it comes to cannabis medicine. Leaf411’s cannabis nurse hotline is a FREE resource for people to call and speak directly to a medical professional that can point them in the right direction.

Lizzy Jax ,

Great information! Education is key.

With so many options in cbd/hemp oil, it’s necessary to educate yourself on the why and how hemp works for our bodies. This podcast is a great way to get that information.
