Describe the impact Cannabis has had on your life?
“Growing cannabis taught me Philosophies that apply to every aspect of my life. I love consuming it but cultivating has taught me so much. “
Where and when were you introduced to cannabis for the first time?
I’m from BC bro lol. All jokes aside, I come from a family that was sort of split in half. My uncles had been growing cannabis since I was born but my parents sent me to rehab in grade 12 for smoking too much of it. I’ve been around cannabis ever since I can remember and it’s been a cultural part of my life. For readers, my parents have come a long way. They get it now. I’m grateful they support me and what Growbox is all about.
What’s your favourite post-smoke activity? Workout? Food?
Pizza without a doubt. We smoke a ton of meat around the house but that takes hours so a pizza is usually eaten while we’re waiting for the brisket or ribs.
If you could sesh with one person dead or alive, who would it be?
My mentor GT – RIP.
What music do you vibe to when using Cannabis?
“Choklit park is about bringing that legacy fire to market while honoring and telling the story of the growers. We aligned very quickly and Growbox supports this concept.”
What are your favourite ways to consume cannabis (joints, vapes, edibles, beverages etc.) and why?
I used to hit bongs but I’d just fall asleep. It’s mostly joints nowadays but for some reason I still fall asleep.
