Happy Halloween! We’re celebrating the spooky season with a new series inspired not by ghosts and goblins, but by my early career working on Wall Street! Finance has a language all its own that often feels like it was meant to intimidate, and I felt it while working in that very male-dominated industry. Fast forward to today. Cannabis culture is coming out of the shadows, but it can still feel intimidating and is definitely defined...
This spring, we started a new series on How to Do the Pot that shares women’s stories about the first time they bought legal weed. We’ve heard from women all across America, who talk honestly about feeling intimidated, overwhelmed, curious, and yet SO EXCITED to walk freely into a cannabis dispensary and start shopping. If you haven’t tried it yet, these are not the smoke shops of your college days. Covid has accelerated and improved the retail experience,...
Did you buy a houseplant in 2020-21? You’re not alone. The pandemic brought out the inner gardener in many of us.  Another popular quarantine project? Growing weed. I live in an apartment in the city and have a 3-year old, so this was not the year for me. Yet the passion women growers have for the plant is contagious. I’m inspired by two sisters who found cannabis seeds in a sock drawer perfect for growing...
When friends ask me what cannabis product they need, they’re surprised when I say…WEED LUBE! I believe every woman should have a cannabis-infused serum for sex in her bedside table. The benefits of weed lube are primarily for women, plus it makes sex feel great, helps if you have any pain, and won’t get you high. You have probably heard us rave about it on How to Do the Pot’s episodes about cannabis & sex. We also...
I’ve been thinking about “good weed” as I’m finally, happily, getting together with friends. If I’m bringing the cannabis, I want to bring high quality, tested products from a licenced dispensary and ensure it will enhance what we’re doing – whether it’s an intimate dinner, a day by the water, or an outdoor concert. Yet different occasions might call for different types of weed. How do you decide on the right weed for the party? ...
Did you know that migraines are 3x more likely to affect women than men? Many women are finding relief with cannabis, but it can be complicated. Experimentation and patience will determine the right mix of CBD and THC that ease symptoms like pain and nausea. Women often find cannabis medicine after trying everything else – and it’s the first thing that works for them.  On this week’s episode, we talk to a woman who has...
If eating cannabis conjures up a bad memory of a too-strong weed cookie, you are not alone. Many people have sworn off edibles after a small bite turned into hours of feeling too high. Yet edibles are a discreet and popular way to consume cannabis for fun, and they provide long-lasting relief for medical patients. Once you learn the right dose, you can get creative with cannabis & cooking. In this week’s podcast, we talk...
Sometimes you hear a story that you just can’t get out of your head. That’s how I felt after talking to two women about autoimmune diseases, which affect women at a rate of 2:1 compared to men. Timeka Drew and Christine De La Rosa found their way to cannabis as a last resort to treat the symptoms of Crohn’s Disease and Lupus, which nearly killed each of them.  Our goal with How to Do the Pot is...
Recently on How to Do the Pot, we talk with an all-women band who started playing music for fun & turned it into a career as working musicians. Cannabis helps them rekindle their love of music in spite of COVID’s shutdown of live shows and the intense pressures of the music industry. Sparking ideas is one of the superpowers of cannabis and in today’s High Five, we dig into what we know about why the plant...
The past six months have radically changed the legal landscape in cannabis, giving nearly 50 million people across the U.S. legal access. In the November 2020 election, adult use of cannabis – which means for anyone over 21 – was on the ballot in New Jersey, Arizona, South Dakota and Montana & for medical use in Mississippi. It passed in every state. So far in 2021, Mexico legalized cannabis, and Virginia, New Mexico, and New...
Late stage pandemic burnout seems to be on everyone’s mind lately, and if you’re in the cannabis industry, so is legalization. Last week, New York, Virginia and New Mexico all took final steps to legalize cannabis, bringing the total to 16 states with adult use and 36 states with legal medical use. How are pandemic burnout & cannabis connected? More than 80 million women in the U.S. now have access to legal cannabis, and microdosing is increasingly...
We talk about getting high a lot on How to Do the Pot and in this newsletter but we’ve never talked about it quite like you’ll hear in the episode that drops this Tuesday – and marks my final episode with the show as its inaugural host. As the show’s co-creator, I’ve spent two years developing the content and designing the podcast as a brand – on website & socials & this newsletter. Tuesday’s episode is my...
