I am a Ryerson Alumni and local to the Corso Italia community, a place I have called home for a long time. I’ve enjoyed smoking flower for over 8 years until I made the conscious decision move away from combustible.
Today, my preferred method of consumption will involve extracts, edibles, and vapes. I have also found a huge new love for CBD products especially when I need that that extra relief in my life. When we say: “It’s about the journey!”, I can speak from experience.
Everyday I’m learning about new products and what we can offer our customers to make everyone’s experience as comfortable and enjoyable as it should be.
When I first started using cannabis, all I knew and gravitated to was “Jean Guy” pre-rolls. I liked how this strain made me feel and I truly enjoyed it during leisurely activities like writing or playing video games.
Now that I’m a part of the industry, I’ve come to learn so much more about the vast number of strains and product categories there are, as well as some of the history behind cannabis.
Sharing my cannabis knowledge and keeping it simple for newcomers is what I enjoy the most as a Cannabis Educator. Everyone is different and we all have our own personal cannabis journey to discover! I can speak from my personal experience!
