What’s your favourite post-smoke activity? Workout? Food?
Eat, create and/or learn. I’m usually smoking at the end of my work day to relax, process and enjoy my downtime to fullest since I don’t get a lot of it. Cannabis has a way of reminding me what matters, to appreciate things and to be present.
If you could sesh with one person dead or alive, who would it be?
Sue Kwon, she’s my favorite rap photographer (living legend), I have all her books, I used to print out all her photos off google as a kid (sorry, Sue, no copyright infringement intended) and post them all over my walls with rap lyrics.
What music do you vibe to when using Cannabis?
Depends on mood! But mostly rap, hiphop, r&b.
