How Mindful Baking Heals

Flour, Sugar, and the Flow My favorite life moments are when I completely lose track of me. I’m chopping toasted walnuts, simmering Jonathan apples with vanilla bean, and working butter, salt, and flour to a consistency only my fingertips can recognize. Playing with the dough like a kid, I layer the filling over the bottom crust and mess with the...

Trippy Healing

Psychedelics are the new medical marijuana. I keep a photo of myself from the bad year, when I left the job I thought defined me and broke up with the man I’d planned to marry. I’m wearing a sleeveless dress no adult who weighs 93 pounds should be wearing, with my undernourished limbs and oversized head. I make...

Fuel to the Hire: Breaking into the Canna-Career

So, you want to get a job in the cannabis industry? Better sharpen your digital networking skills. The competition is fierce.  COVID-19 has turned the cannabis job market on its head. Before the pandemic hit, employers were struggling to find and retain talent in the lightning-hot cannabis industry, which boasted one of the country’s fastest-growing job markets, with a job creation rate of 110 percent from 2017 to 2020 and a median annual salary of...

CBD in Beauty: Is it More than Skin Deep?

The “it” cannabinoid is the hottest ingredient in skincare, but will it really make you hot? The CBD beauty market is on track to reach $25 billion globally in the next 10 years—a mindblowing figure when you consider that five years ago, most of us hadn’t even heard of CBD. I hadn’t. Then I did, and soon it was everywhere, being sold as a potential cure for everything, hawked by everyone—the gas station attendant pushing CBD gummies; the elderly neighbor talking about the CBD tincture that got him back on the pickleball court; and even the girl from high school who stumbled into my DMs reciting practiced MLM scripts and urging every- one in her orbit to join her marketing mission, to get in on the...

Parties for the People: The Challenges and Rewards of Covid Era Catering

COVID-19 makes serving cannabis dinners a little more challenging and a lot more meaningful. February was an incredible month for my young business, Cannabis Kitchen Events, which provides private cannabis-infused dinners and cooking classes at people’s homes and short-term rentals in Denver. We catered our first wedding on Febraury 22, and our upcoming calendar was packed with bachelorette and birthday parties well...

Body Made for Bliss

One thing I’ve noticed over the years, when talking with my cannabis-using friends, is that they are more likely to say it makes them feel “normal” rather than “stoned.” I generally answer that “it keeps me balanced” or something along those lines. I would never say that about another mind-altering substances (alcohol, for instance), and it’s at least...
