An interview with Makenna Maness, Founder of Get Lit Get Fit
A #community is a social group, large or small, that has something in common albeit values or religion. And, it shares a sense of place, including virtual space via social platforms. Whether its face-to-face or Facebook posts, educating people about the plant, and its benefits are key elements to the #cannabis community.
The stigma around #cannabis often leaves people unsure how to #educate themselves without being discovered. Amanda Hughes-Munson, founder of Higher Education Texas and educator at Dallas Fort Worth Academy of Cannabis Science, offers people a nurturing group on Facebook to talk or ask questions.
With a background as a medical esthetician, her passion for wellness and education helps shape the #Texas cannabis industry by providing intimate services for cannabis curious folks to educate, empower and engage for a better quality of life. Keep reading to learn more about how this #TX420PIONEER plans to seek out more education opportunities to change hearts and minds about the cannabis community!
