CannaQueen Consulting was founded in 2018 as a personal blog, primarily as a platform to share my chronic illness journey to medical cannabis. After years of failed treatments and therapies for a genetic disease, a kind doctor talked to me about medical cannabis. I would tell anyone who asked about cannabis, and '@askcannaqueen' was born.
The pet project rapidly evolved into a full time consulting business that allowed me to share my journey, advocate for change, and to support myself financially with the coolest job on the planet. I use the written word for storytelling, education and smashing stigma about the plant and people who use it. That's my story, now I work with cannabis publications, licensed producers, retail stores, brands and businesses to tell theirs.
Cannabis is a powerful tool for healing, a catalyst for social and economic equality, and is providing unprecedented opportunity for women and people of colour in business. Unfortunately misinformation and stigma are prevalent, often reducing cannabis users to a punchline. I am proud and humbled to join an industry full of driven and brilliant professionals ahead of their time. CannaQueen Consulting is here to help people feel empowered in their cannabis choices through education and engagement.
