Introduce yourself and what do you do?

Brittney Guthrie – Cannabis Consultant and Event Coordinator 

Can you share any turning points in your career or particular moments of success?

For 2024 I made it my mission to open doors for the cannabis industry into more public age-gated environments. 21,000 impressions at The Taboo Show was just a start! 

Describe your cannabis use in 3 words.

DO EPIC SHIT

Describe the impact Cannabis has had on your life?
Cannabis has been a part of my life for almost 18 years and through trial and tribulations it’s still a complicated question to answer. Where some doors have opened many have closed and the stigmas we face in this industry have had a huge impact on that. I have found that focusing on the experience of the product and not the cannabis itself has been an easier narrative to work with the public. Between my time pre legalization and post legalization it’s been a rollercoaster but I’m stronger for it!

Where and when were you introduced to cannabis for the first time?

I grew up on Vancouver Island (Nanaimo) and fell in love with cannabis at 15. If I recall it was a dark dingy unfinished basement full of teenagers and a Volcano. Wouldn’t have had it any other way! 

What’s your favourite post-smoke activity? Workout? Food?

I like to get weird… whatever that entails. I’ll try anything twice! 

What music do you vibe to when using Cannabis?

If I am not head banging to Rock and Metal I’ve probably got some 90’s rap on. 

“I’m really enjoying creating custom drinks using the current selection we have on the market”

If you could sesh with one person dead or alive, who would it be?

I would have a huge bong toke and cuddle with my pug Mario that passed away almost ten years ago now. My soul mate. Love you buddy. 

What are your favourite ways to consume cannabis (joints, vapes, edibles, beverages etc.) and why?

For some reason I could never put down the bong but I’m pretty happy with anything these days! I’m really enjoying creating custom drinks using the current selection we have on the market but really hoping to see some tinctures come out so I can have more structure for my Canna – Bevvy Bars!
