All Aboard the Cannabis Train: A Look at Legalization from Coast to Coast

On October 17th, cannabis is set to be struck from the big bad ledger of illegal narcotics in Canada after 95 long years of prohibition. But don’t light that joint just yet! With change comes a variety of rules and regulations that are sure to confuse, and perhaps frustrate, many users around the country.

Canadian Living: Why I Smoke Weed

I’m so thrilled to be featured among my fellow female #cannapreneurs in Canadian Living’s latest article on why we use cannabis. I always emphasize the importance of spreading as much knowledge as possible as legalization nears, not only to promote safe consumption, but to quash stereotypes.

Editor’s Picks: Top 5 Summer Cannassentials

With summer at its peak, there’s nothing better than getting baked while baking in the sun. I personally love toking outside, whether it’s in my little garden, one of Montreal’s lush parks or poolside (with a massive deli sandwich, jalapeño chips and an Arnold Palmer). Most importantly, I always have my favourite accessories from the Allume collection on hand to enhance my sunshine sesh and protect my skin.

Rise of the Cannabis Curriculum: A Look at Weed Degrees Cropping up Nationwide

It’s finally happening. On October 17, recreational cannabis use will be legal for adults throughout the great white north, kicking off a billion-dollar industry already backed by a long-established client base—and subjected to more than its share of red tape and regulations. From crop production to commercialization, building a solid foundation for legalization depends heavily on the expertise of specialists in a diverse array of fields. Post-secondary institutions across the country are addressing this growing need with an increasing number of classes and programs created to train the first generation of Canadian weed workers.

Pot Talk With Broccoli Magazine Creator Anja Charbonneau

The moment I discovered Broccoli, a fresh new magazine created by women for women who enjoy pot, I was hooked.
