With spring finally starting to bloom, my thoughts have turned to plants, flowers, and gardening. I’ve been a “plant mom” for a while now, and this year I’m excited to take some of my own advice from our Grow Your Own episodes to grow a cannabis plant for the first time. If you’re considering a plant project, check out our short podcast episodes that share all you need to know – and please pay attention to the legal...
Words have a lot of power, which is the inspiration behind our series called Weed Words, which unpacks widely recognized but narrowly understood terms like “Paranoia,” “The Munchies,” and “CBD”. But what if as a society we are holding onto a word with a complicated, and quite frankly, racist history? It’s time to talk about “Marijuana.” If you aren’t aware of the weight this word carries — you’re not alone, and this episode will help...
If you’re anything like me, your sleep cycle has probably suffered under the stress of the last two years. Our new podcast series, Sleep 101, is dedicated to helping you rediscover a more restful nightly snooze. Sleep is a complicated topic on its own, and when you add weed…there’s a lot to cover. The key question to consider is whether you need help falling asleep or staying asleep. We walk you through how cannabis affects...
Silver linings aren’t always easy to find, especially during a global pandemic, but when the world slowed down two years ago it gave me the chance to explore my relationship with cannabis consumption and stress. I was able to determine how, when, and why cannabis helps lower my stress and anxiety levels—and now I’m well-equipped with tried and tested suggestions to help you do the same.  My findings? The right dose of cannabis can help...
Since we launched How to Do the Pot’s new website late last year, we’ve noticed one section that gets a lot of interest: weed for period pain. More than 80 percent of women have experienced menstrual cramps, and cannabis is a solution growing in popularity for its effectiveness with minimal side effects. CBD especially is showing great promise in treating cramps. The best part? You don’t have to live in a legal state to try it, since CBD is available...
Have you heard of an entrepreneur named Esther Howland? She built a makeshift assembly line in her home, hired a crew of women, paid them fairly, and was the first to create wildly popular cards celebrating Valentine’s Day – in 1840! What is now the second most popular reason to send a greeting card (after Christmas) was the brainchild of a hard-working, creative woman. In celebration of the lasting impact of Esther’s impulse to spread love,...
My sense is that it’s been a pretty rocky start to the year for many people. If you’re feeling extra heaviness this January, the concept of “wintering” has been helping me. Wintering is described as a season of the natural world, a respite our bodies require, and a state of mind – and it seems in many ways the perfect match for early 2022. Another big help is cannabis, especially microdosing, or taking small amounts of weed to...
Did you know that nearly 60 percent of Americans don’t know what CBD is? But people are definitely curious – a Google search for CBD brings up more than 2.4 BILLION results! I’m guessing the top questions are: is CBD safe, and will it get me high? If you are asking these questions, you’re in luck. Our series Weed Words tackles the cannabis words & phrases that you feel like you should know, but maybe...
On How to Do the Pot, so many amazing women have generously shared their excitement, concerns, and very practical tips about buying legal weed – a first-time shopping experience unlike any other. Hearing their diverse stories led me to think about how different the buying experience can be state to state. Our new series, Legalization 101, breaks down all you need to know about medical or adult-use (aka recreational) cannabis. If you’re not sure about what’s legal...
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...
