It’s been a long time. I shouldn’t left you without a dope rhyme to step to… 🎶🎧

But I’m back… doing the work isn’t just about helping others it’s filling my vessel first. I have had some amazing adventures these past few weeks and settling into my role at Pacific College. It’s a privilege, this I know and give thanks for daily to teach Cannabis Medicine at a college. It’s humbling to show up for the first time as your whole self in a traditional setting.

Today I am grateful for this journey and committed to filling this vessel first so I can keep doing this incredible work.

Today’s walk was all about clarity and peace thanks to @nursegrown_vermontcannanurse hemp flower “Suver Haze” 🌞🌞 Just a nice, chill vibe.

Healthy consumption methods matter and my @davincivaporizer never fails me.
