Today at 11:30am I was supposed to be giving a lecture presentation to the attendees of @chefsroll Anti-Convention
I would have done as I always do before a presentation; wake up early, work out, shower, meditate for 20 minutes to clear my mind and then go on stage to present what I’ve learned over the years of starting my business.
I share anecdotes of how I first started in the Cannabis industry, and more importantly, how I first started by educating myself- recounting my memories of taking psilocybin and LSD in the forest with my friends and having the epiphany to start THC. I gloss over the different experts and tribes that I’ve worked with in the US, Canada, New Zealand, Italy and more in the name of Plant Medicine research. I tell stories of how I lived out of my car after leaving my studies because I was relentless in pursuing my deepest passion. Then I talk about the most important thing in the world to me- food as medicine and the incredible community food creates around the globe. How food and plants have shaped our lives in the physical and metaphysical throughout human history. How our bodies have essentially evolved by using plants and rest to heal ourselves.
I hope to relay that the whole mission of my little company is to de-stigmatize plant medicine around the globe. Through food I teach and I learn. Through food I express culture and lessons. Through food I learn humility and passion. Through food I learn hope and joy. Although I do not get to share this sentiment on stage this morning, I share it in my heart every day with the people I interact with (outside of Covid times 😋).
I will be going live tonight instead so we can hang out and have some good conversation. Please feel free to join me for an after dinner joint at 7pm.
