This podcast discusses cannabis and is intended for audiences 21 and over. Welcome to How to Do the Pot, a podcast de-mystifying cannabis for women. I’m Ellen Scanlon. On these short episodes, we share women’s stories about the first time they bought legal weed. I hope they bring a little fun and a new perspective into your week. Lisa Curiel Parker is the senior marketing and communications manager at Humboldt Farms. She has also been struggling with painful migraines since she was a child. On episode 73 of How to Do the Pot, Lisa shares her personal story, and we talked to medical experts about the promising ways cannabis is treating migraine pain.
Lisa Curiel Parker (00:49):
The first time was with my dad. He is an attorney, but he suffers from horrible back pain. And so, got my medicinal card and as a chronic migraine sufferer, I thought, I’m going to use anything and everything I can to get rid of migraine. So the first time was with him at Rose Collective in Venice, California. I remember we got a couple plants which was exciting and threw them in the backyard, got some White Widow. It’s been a father daughter bonding experience in the process.

And I think there was a couple other plants that we had, and my dad’s from upstate New York. So he has all these plants in the yard. And so we just kind of threw it in between two apple trees and it just flourished. It didn’t get wet and it was outdoor. It was so great. We harvested it in the full moon and did that whole process together and cured it. And he made some really strong edibles after that. It knocked me off for a couple of days and it was wonderful just talking through that process and doing that with him. He has a natural green thumb at heart as well.
