#Relevnt | An Interview with Peter Labat IV, Owner of The Labat Wood Shop

Chicago-based The Labat Wood Shop owner,  Peter Labat IV loves to work on his woodworking, so much so that he’s turned it into a thriving business. He began storing projects that looked amazing, affordable, and easy on Pinterest in 2016. Soon, Peter was into various woodworking like carvings and furniture.

“The thing that captivated me about woodworking, is that it could be both beautiful and functional.”

Peter Labat IV

He started by making things for his home and gradually collecting tools. He spent four years perfecting his woodworking craft then in 2020, Peter lost his job as a navigational watch officer in the Gulf of Mexico.

Instantly he knew he’d be starting his own furniture company. Thus, The Labat Wood Shop was born.

The Labat Wood Shop

Let’s Get Lifted!

Drops or salve; Why?

I’m embarrassed to admit I haven’t had either. We don’t get many of these options in New Orleans, and I imagine it’s the same way in other places where cannabis isn’t legal. I’m hoping that as my business grows into stronger cannabis marketplaces, I’ll get to try things like this.

If you could be a cannabis superhero, who would you be?

I think I would be ‘Super Chill”. A guy who can make everyone sit down and be quiet haha. I love peace, quiet, tranquility, and calm. I hate commotion, chaos, and confusion.

What are your top 2 smoking songs?

This might be the hardest question. Curren$y is my favorite canna-rapper and one of my top of 5 overall favorites. His whole library is filled with smoking hits. But the two most acclaimed are Famous – from Pilot Talk 2 and Surface to Air from the How Fly mixtape with Wiz Khalifa

Dab into Business!

How did The Labat Wood Shop get started?

So, The Labat Wood Shop is a woodworking company first and foremost. We specialize in custom furniture building and design; it just so happens that our signature product is a premium rolling tray made from exotic hardwood. So we are not necessarily a cannabis brand. We’re more cannabis adjacent.

I started woodworking as a hobby in 2014. I loved how versatile and creative you could be with wood. You can carve and sculpt it to make artwork or use it to build furniture. You can paint it, stain it, toggle between classic and vintage styles, build coasters to houses, and everything in between.

I had already fallen in love with the craft, and planned to monetize it in some way before the pandemic. So when I got laid off from my job due to Covid, I already knew that I’d be starting a woodworking company. Now here we are, still charging ahead, trying to stay afloat!

Describe your niche in the cannabis space.

As I said, our signature product is a premium rolling tray made from exotic hardwood, but it’s much more than that; it’s a Companion! See, your typical rolling tray is made from cheap, thin metal easily dented or damaged and has those goofy Scooby-Doo graphics printed on it.

That might be cool when you’re in college, but not when you’re a seasoned stoner. Most avid cannabis users are grown-ups, businessmen, and women who are working professionals and even have kids. No one who pays a mortgage should have to roll their flower on one of those goofy trays. We offer a more mature option to the marketplace.

We named it the Companion to show people that this is a LIFETIME smoking accessory. The last rolling tray you’ll ever need. We all cherish those moments when we finally sit down to roll up. Whether it’s the wake and bake or the nightcap, and when you pull out your one-of-a-kind smoking Companion, it makes that moment even more special!

Did you face any legal or criminal barriers to cannabis entry? If so, how did you overcome the barriers?


Thankfully, I’ve never faced any issues like this. The closest criminal encounter I’ve had was being busted hotboxing in my homeboy’s car down the road from our college. We saw the police car rolling upon us so I hurried up and swallowed the blunt.

The cop told us to exit the car, and when we did, of course, hella smoke poured out, but there was nothing left for him to find. He asked us what we were doing here, and we told him we were students. He just told us to go and never come back. We were so shook I think we quit smoking for about a week haha.

WHAT ARE SOME TALENTS, SKILLS, EXPERIENCE, AND KNOWLEDGE that YOU have TRANSFERRED TO CANNABIS?

I think I’m a very sociable person! I enjoy conversing with people about interesting topics. Hobbies, jobs, life, and whatever gets us both excited enough to truly engage with one another.

I’ve always been organized and structured though as well. So I know how to use my time wisely, accomplish tasks, and stay productive.

WHAT ARE SOME TALENTS, SKILLS, AND KNOWLEDGE that YOU Have PICKED UP WHILE IN CANNABIS?


How to be a salesman! I’ve had to really sharpen my sales skills since being in business. Knowing how to talk to customers, tell them what they want to hear, and explain my company and product well. Learning where to find customers and how to attract them.

Which tech tools did you use to start The Labat Wood Shop?

  • Wix for my website
  • Quickbooks for bookkeeping
  • Instagram and Facebook for marketing/sales.
  • Getting into Tik Tok now.
  • Inshot for photo/video editing

How does The Labat Wood Shop stand out from other brands within your target population?

The Labat Wood Shop stands out as a brand because there aren’t any household woodworking brands inside the cannabis space that I’m aware of. Raw makes wooden rolling trays, yes, but not out of exotic wood, and their trays don’t tell a story or have a name like ours do!

For them, it’s just another product in their line, and that’s okay. We want to be a household name for wooden rolling trays inside the cannabis space. What Raw is to rolling papers, we want to be to rolling trays.

I’m a woodworking enthusiast, so I’m more passionate about woodworking than cannabis, and I think that’s what makes us unique.

Tell us about The Labat Wood Shop’s top products and services.

Our signature product is The Companion, a premium rolling tray made from exotic hardwoods such as maple, African Mahogany, and walnut, just to name a few. Each Companion is completely unique because no two trays have the same grain, just like no two people have the same fingerprint.

It’s a classier/more mature option than the rolling trays you see on the market, and every hardworking, seasoned smoker should have a premium rolling tray in their collection. They’re built to last a lifetime, so you’ll literally use them every day.

The Labat Wood Shop

Pass it Around!

What have been some highlights with marketing The Labat Wood Shop?

Actually getting recognized! We’ve been on the front page of the newspaper, interviewed by blogs and great organizations, I’ve been recognized in the street by people who follow our Instagram, and have made some really great new friendships on social media as well.

All of it is extremely wonderful, and we couldn’t be more grateful! We take advantage of every opportunity we possibly can to network and grow our brand.

What have been some challenges THE LABAT WOOD SHOP has faced with marketing?


Actually making sales!! Actually generating revenue!! I think a lot of people like our product, but we’re just not seeing the numbers. We don’t have enough outreach! Not enough people are seeing us, and when they do see us, I don’t think we present like a “company.”

I think we present ourselves as an artist/woodworker/small business. But we have a lot of “irons in the fire.” There’s a lot of momentum generating, and we’re expecting a really big boost in November and December. The holidays will obviously be huge, but we’ve also got the Black Cannabis Conference in November, and I am 100% confident that we will meet the people who will help catapult us to the next level!!


SHOP THE LABAT WOOD SHOP FOR THE HOLIDAYS


What’s The Labat Wood Shop’s silver lining to it all?


Knowing that if you push through, you will succeed!! You gotta go through the grit and grind to come out on top.

What are some best practices for advertising The Labat Wood Shop?

We don’t advertise well. So we rely solely on social media posting for advertising. We haven’t fully implemented our budget yet, so we don’t run “ads”; we just post. And we don’t really post strategically. We just鈥ost. Our real advertising strategy is about tapping into influencers.

We will definitely skyrocket if we can get our trays to Curren$y, Wiz, and Snoop.

What are some best practices for growing your audience on social media?

I wish I knew. Nothing I do seems to work, lol. I just be pouring my Lil heart into those reels. Still waiting for one to go viral.

What’s some advice you have for folks that want to enter the space?1 response
Find your niche and dig into it. There are so many people going into business. Not just cannabis, all businesses.

If you want to set yourself apart, you have to brand, and branding is nothing more than telling your story.

3 Ways To Use Cannabis for Spiritual Growth

Although most people don’t think of cannabis as spiritual, but think more of cannabis as a recreational drug, most commonly used during celebrations or social gatherings. However, there is more to cannabis than meets the eye. 

In this article, we discuss three ways cannabis can help you spiritually grow. Then, we’ll offer you a list of books to help guide you along the journey.

What is Spirituality?

Spir路it路u路al路i路ty noun /藢spiriCHo蜑o藞al蓹d膿/

The quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things. Definitions from Oxford Languages

Spiritually is more often associated with the quest for self-transcendence. Cannabis is considered spiritual despite many religious practices that use marihuana.

Subsequently, one of the most famous uses of marijuana was by Rastafarians. Their use of the plant was to cleanse themselves spiritually to help their bodies with health benefits.

How Does Medical, Recreational, and Spiritual Cannabis Use Differ?

Medical cannabis treats various medical ailments. Recreational cannabis typically refers to marijuana consumed for its euphoric or intoxicating effects.

However, people find spiritual use of cannabis within rituals like meditation, prayer & yoga.

Three Ways to Use Cannabis for Spiritual Growth

Using cannabis through meditation

Cannabis is an herb used to relieve pain, increase focus, and treat many diseases. Using cannabis through meditation can be a great way to relax the body, clear your mind, and connect with your inner self.

It is not always easy to meditate, but it is a much better alternative than resorting to other substances that can be potentially harmful to your health. When you meditate, you can use cannabis and other natural ingredients such as lavender oil, chamomile tea, or lemon essential oil.

Using cannabis through yoga practice

Yoga is a physical and spiritual practice. Importantly, it can also be a valuable tool for healing from trauma, anxiety, and depression.

Cannabis can be ingested in various ways beneficial to users, allowing them to get more fully in touch with their minds and bodies. Many teachers and practitioners are increasingly integrating cannabis and yoga to achieve mental and physical balance.

Letting the plant itself grow spiritually in your presence

Plants are a critical part of our lives. As a result, they deserve love for who they are. Plants teach us about life, and their presence is calming and grounding. 

They help us slow down and reconnect with the natural world. And, they make a great spiritual companion.

Cannabis for Spiritual Growth

Cannabis in Your Spiritual Practice

There are many other characteristics of cannabis for spiritual use. One of the most important is that it tends to be an introspective experience.

In addition, below are a few guidelines to help you along your spiritual journey.

Strain, Dosage, and Methods

Consuming cannabis can be somewhat overwhelming for some people. The effects can quickly get overshadowed by other things. It’s essential to pace yourself, so you don’t consume too much. Start Low and Slow.

There are several methods to consume cannabis. For example, smoke, vaporize, take a tincture, or eat an edible. Choosing between Sativa, Indica, or a hybrid is totally up to you. 

Each person has a different experience of how they feel after taking cannabis. It’s essential to choose your strains carefully and find what suits you best.

Intention

Take a moment before consuming cannabis to connect with yourself, with the plant, and with the universe. Taking this time can help steer and guide your experience from being too hectic or too scattered.

Set and Setting

The setting is essential no matter what you’re doing in life, especially if you’re experimenting with psychedelics. It can provide insights into your grasp of the outside world. And its relationships to the inner workings of your mind.

Working with cannabis in a spiritual space can be intensely dependent on the set (your mindset) and setting (physical surrounding environment) in the sense that it is very much about what you expect or anticipate to come out of your session. 

What you allow, what you don’t allow, and how you react to certain things during your experience could affect your personal preferences.

Reverence

For those embarking on a spiritual journey with cannabis, its roots rest in reverence. Reverence is for the plant itself, nature, and the gravity of the experience.

Reverence can be spurred by connecting to nature through rituals that you do every day. Although many people feel that it can be challenging to tap into their spirituality and connect to a higher level of consciousness, they don’t need to worry. That’s because combining all these things will help you raise your vibration and provide a spiritual experience.

Cannabis for Spiritual Growth

The Practice

Once you have chosen your intention, consumed cannabis, and gathered all of the materials you need for your chosen spiritual practice, it’s time to start experiencing its beauty.

It’s possible to self-explore your deepest desires for your spiritual practice. You might want to start by considering what you feel is most passionate to you. Experiment with your consciousness, creativity, and consumption.

In the End

Spirituality and cannabis are intersecting more often these days. And, the intersection is based on the spiritual insights that we gain from the plant and our spiritual journeys.

How to Get an MMJ Recommendation – A Clear-Cut Guide

Are you are planning on getting your first medical marijuana recommendation or looking for the easiest way to get one? With this clear-cut guide, you’ll be able to get your MMJ request within just a few minutes.

What is an MMJ Recommendation?

MMJ recommendations are medical marijuana recommendation that is given to patients by doctors. They also referred to as a rec. In addition, it is issued to an individual who has been evaluated by medical professionals and determined to be in good standing for state-legal medical marijuana use.

Marijuana recommendations are most commonly used in states with legal, medical cannabis dispensary programs or recreational marijuana dispensaries. As a result, patients can purchase cannabis online or in person. Furthermore, dispensaries have the most extensive MMJ rec systems. Rec systems include checks for criminal records, identification, and completing paperwork to determine the type of cannabis needed.

Why do I Need an MMJ Recommendation?

You might be wondering why you need an MMJ recommendation when you can go out and buy marijuana in the black market. Short answer – many states require a valid MMJ recommendation to purchase medical marijuana legally.

Here are a few reasons why you need an mmj recommendation:

  • Purchases at dispensaries require a recommendation.
  • To help if you’re found using marijuana without a medical card.
  • It provides the dispensary information on your current conditions to recommend something more tailored for your needs.
  • Marijuana is safer than some other prescribed medications like Opioids.
  • Further, isolated compounds鈥攕uch as聽CBD聽鈥攃an offer treatment options without the “high” produced by the compound commonly known as THC.
  • In addition, for thousands of years, cannabis has consistently provided impressive results to treat a variety of conditions.

In summary, an MMJ recommendation provides legitimacy to the person receiving it and helps them find the proper treatment for their condition.

How to Find an MMJ Doctor

Not only should patients consider asking their primary care physician for a referral to an appropriate cannabis doctor, but also understand the cannabis doctor must be licensed by the state and no disciplinary action taken against them. If your primary doctor is not comfortable giving you a referral, ask them if they know someone who would be able to help you.

Second, when you seek an MMJ doctor, you can start by asking friends and family for a recommendation. However, if your immediate circle isn’t familiar with a good doctor for your request, they can always ask their friends and family about one. In the same way, it’s not uncommon to have mutual friends or co-workers who have been looking for an MMJ doctor as well.

Another easy way would be to call your local pharmacy or dispensary. Ask for their recommendations. They should know who the most reputable doctors in town are, as well as who they recommend to their customers most often.

Can I Get My MMJ Recommendation Online?

The easiest way to find an MMJ doctor is by going online and searching for them. Remember that the internet is a vast place, and there are plenty of options out there.

We recommend聽Prestodoctors.com as a good place to start. Prestodoctors.com聽is an online platform that connects patients with MMJ doctors. They have a database of licensed MMJ doctors that they have personally vetted before approving them to serve as their “presto” doctors.

To find a good MMJ doctor for your MMJ request, here are some steps that you should follow:

  • Make a list of experienced in MMJ doctors in your area
  • Search for reviews on the doctors in your area
  • Find out if they have vacancies in any open times

Qualifying Conditions for an MMJ Recommendation

If you are wondering, “what conditions make it possible to get an mmj recommendation?” you are not alone. Many people are unsure of the approved conditions for an mmj recommendation.

The laws around medicinal marijuana vary from state to state, but generally, states that allow it permits its use for treating:

  • Cancer
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Epilepsy and seizures
  • Chronic pain
  • Severe nausea
  • Insomnia
  • Mental health

If you’re in a state where doctors can prescribe cannabis, your primary care physician might recommend it to help with relieving chronic symptoms that impact your quality of life. This includes health problems that prevent you from getting out and doing daily activities.

What is a Typical Medical Marijuana Application Process?

The application process for an MMJ card can vary from state to state. Some states use processes, such as sending in your personal physician’s recommendation, while other states may require you to send in lab test results.

The first step is to fill out an application at the dispensary or online. There are some required questions which include your name, age, height, weight, and diagnosis. The required questions allows the dispensary staff to verify you are lawfully allowed access to medical marijuana.

Then, you will schedule an appointment to see a licensed mmj physician to evaluate your request. Afterwards, the physician will inform you if you are approved.

Some in-person MMJ recommendations take two weeks. Whereas online recommendations take less than an hour. As a result, the process of getting support has become much more streamlined and efficient.

The third step would be visiting a dispensary, where you then pick out what strain of cannabis matches your needs or wants best.

Now you have your Marijuana Recommendation, What’s Next?

The next step, make sure your preferred strain is compatible with your needs. Are you looking for a strain for daytime or nighttime use? Does Indica or Sativa interest you? Do you want to stay basic with just one type of cannabis or mix up your routine? Speak to your physician, mmj doctor, friends, or budtender to help you determine which strain best fits your needs.

Choosing The Best Soil For Growing Cannabis

First Published on WEEDSPEEK.COM

Cannabis is a flowering plant, and to grow these plants, we need to provide them with the right conditions. One important factor when growing cannabis is soil quality.

If you are thinking about growing cannabis but are unclear about the type of soil to plant your cannabis seeds, you have come to the right place.

What is Soil?

Soil is material covering the earth’s surface made from the weathering of rocks. It comprises mainly mineral particles, organic materials, air, water, and living organisms, interacting slowly yet constantly.

Soil color describes the type of plant life present in an area. Some places will have more green soil, while others might have more brown or red soil.

Soil minerals come in three size classes 鈥 clay, silt, and sand; the percentages of particles in these size classes are called soil texture.

Soil texture affects how easily water moves into, through, and out of the ground. For example, clay soils have a smaller particle size than silt or sand. Clay soils are sticky and clump together, whereas sand is loose. The large particles in silt make it difficult for water to move through as they can’t pass through so easily as clay can.

Best Soil For Growing Cannabis Outdoors

In gardening, the type of soil has a significant impact on the success of plants. For example, if a garden has a lot of clay, it will be very fertile and suitable for vegetables. Gardeners need to know which kind of soil they have and which plants can thrive in that environment.

We have listed the three basic soil types for growing cannabis outdoors:

Sand: This type of soil comes from arid desert areas. Sand has a lot of air pockets and can dry out quickly. But it does not hold onto water for very long and often becomes too complicated when wet.

Clay: This type of soil retains water and nutrients, but it does not drain quickly, making it difficult for the plant roots to get air.

Silt: In this soil type, particles are much more refined than sand or clay, with fewer air pockets. It also holds onto nutrients better than sand but drains well when wet, making it perfect for growing marijuana plants that need consistent watering.

There are many ways for preparing the soil before planting cannabis, but these are some common methods.

  • Tilling is a term used to describe a process that turns over the top layer of dirt. This exposes weeds, seeds or roots that may have been missed during tilling by hand or a tilling machine.
  • We all know that composting is an environmentally friendly and sustainable way to improve your garden by letting it reuse its ingredients over and over again. It also adds nutrients back into your plant’s soil!

Best Soil For Growing Cannabis Indoors

Cannabis has consistently been grown outdoors. However, the legalization of cannabis in some states has many people looking for a way to indoor grow.

It’s essential to pay attention to what type of soil you are using because they all behave differently. You can choose from different soils, but the three main types are organic soils, hydroponic soils, and inorganic soils.

Organic soils are preferred for growing weed indoors because they contain all the nutrients that plants need. They also have natural pest repellants which will ensure that you have less trouble with bugs and insects.

Hydroponic soil with polymers holds up to 1000% more water than traditional soil. It is essential for indoor growers without needing a greenhouse, hot summer days, or an expert on hand. They can provide an excellent environment for healthy growth and productivity by providing easy access to nutrients and oxygen.

An inorganic soil is not too porous, and it’s high in nutrients, making them perfect for growing cannabis indoors. They include bark, peat, coco coir, and perlite. They allow for a steady supply of water and nutrients while preventing excess drainage from the roots.

HOW CBD SERUMS CAN HELP IMPROVE YOUR SEX LIFE


The Importance of a Good Potting Mix For Cannabis Growers

A cannabis grower should consider using a good potting mix when they are growing their plants. This type of potting mix is necessary for cannabis plants to thrive.

Loam is a recommended potting mixture composed of sand, silt, and clay. The best thing about loam is that it allows water and air to move freely through it, so your plants will get plenty of both items. It’s also very fertile.

A good potting mix can help prevent root rot and reduce the chances of diseases in the plants. It will also help in improving nutrient uptake, water retention and speed up plant growth.

In The End

Soil is the foundation of all gardeners’ work. Not only does it provide structure and support for plants, but it also provides drainage and aeration that’s required for water and air to be absorbed. Without proper soil, plants will not thrive and may even die off.

We hope you find it easier to choose the best soil for growing your cannabis with this article.

The Definitive Guide on Growing Cannabis From Seeds

First Published on WEEDSPEEK.COM

Growing Cannabis from Seeds is a great way to learn about the process. It also gives you a vaster assortment of strains and plant types.

First-time growers are often intimidated by the complexity of starting with cannabis seeds. But have no fear; we’re here to help! This article makes the process as straightforward as possible.

Reasons Why You Should Start Growing Cannabis From Seeds

Growing cannabis from seed is a way to ensure the strain you want will grow, and it’s a rewarding experience knowing you created a new plant. Another reason is you can increase your favorite strain and have a higher quality product.

You can also save seeds and share them with friends. And, since more states are legalizing marijuana, there are endless reasons to start growing.

Is it Legal to Buy Cannabis Seeds?

Some states allow cannabis seeds; others have restrictions. For example, while it’s legal to sell cannabis seeds in states with a recreational market, crossing the state line with them is still prohibited. Only people that have a medical marijuana card living in states with medical marijuana legalization can buy seeds.

Check your local laws before purchasing cannabis seeds.

Where Can I Purchase Cannabis Seeds?

If you are starting with your plants, then you can always opt for purchasing seed from a seed bank, online, or at a dispensary that offers feminized and regular seeds along with a wide selection of strains.

Should I Buy Seeds VS Clones?

Cannabis is still considered illegal in most places. So, to get cannabis seeds, you need to grow them or buy them online.

Seeds are the original plants. They are perfect for growing in your garden because you can always grow them again and again. Seeds are also cheaper when compared to clones.

Clones are replicas of the original plants. They are grown from cuttings and can be produced at home as well as commercially. They are perfect if you want to start growing cannabis right away without having to wait too long for the seedlings to mature into their final form.

Some people believe that clones produce better quality yields when compared with seeds because they carry fewer genetic mutations than seeds do.

What’s the Best Time of Year for Planting?

The best time of year to plant cannabis is when the temperature and temperature forecast is at their lowest.

For example, it’s best to plant them in colder climates when the soil is moist from winter rain. If it’s warm enough for spring planting outdoors, then it’s best to plant them before the days start getting longer and warmer at the end of summer.

It is best to break down your plants’ life cycle into three stages: seedling, vegetative growth, and flowering to develop your planting schedule. The water and nutrients necessary for the plants’ growth will change by these stages.

What is the Germination Process?

Many growers have the question, “how do I germinate my weed seed?” One way is to place your seeds in wet paper towels and let them soak in a sunny window sill for several days. Another way, if you are short on time, another way is to use heat-treated soil or hydroponic solutions to heat your soil slowly over several days.

Here’s another option how to germinate your cannabis seeds.

  1. Fill a jar with enough potting soil and water the jar until the water starts to seep into the potting soil.
  2. Place your weed seeds into the jar and cover them with about an inch of soil.
  3.  Place a plastic or glass lid on top of the jar and place it in a warm, dark place for around five days.
  4. When your weed seeds have sprouted, remove them from the jar and plant them in their designated area.

How to Prepare Your Soil for Planting Cannabis Seeds

Soil is a significant factor in growing marijuana plants. The quality of soil has a tremendous impact on the health and growth of cannabis plants.

Soil should be free from debris, have good drainage, and have a pH level close to neutral. If it doesn’t have these qualities, growers can add lime or compost to adjust the pH levels and nutrients to improve the overall quality of the soil.

How Much Light do You Need Growing Cannabis from Seeds?

There is no one-and-done answer without considering all of the factors that will affect the light needed by the cannabis plant.

The amount of light you need to grow cannabis from seed can vary depending on the time of year you are growing and how long and what type of strain you are using.

Indoor growers usually need more lights than outdoor growers. However, outdoor growers need a lot more light than indoor growers.

How Much Water do You Need for Growing Cannabis from Seeds?

To grow cannabis from seeds, you need a large amount of water. You can use a hydroponic system or soil. The roots absorb moisture in the soil, but it can also put an extra financial burden on your wallet if done incorrectly. 

A hydroponic system will provide the right amount of water and nutrients for your plants but will not require as much effort as growing in soil.

How Much Patience do You Need for Growing Cannabis from Seeds?

For some people, growing cannabis is just a hobby or just an activity to relax. However, it is a way of life for others, and they spend entire days tending to their plants.

Growing cannabis from seeds requires patience and extra effort. Some growers might be able to grow one plant from a single seed in one season, while others might need at least four or five seasons before they can get their first harvest.

Dab into Business!

How did you get started; why?

I was ready to change the trajectory of my life. I was beyond bored with corporate, so I started researching how to start my own business. I kept getting signs that I needed a business that ignited a fire and sparked my passion. I knew the universe would guide me鈥.so cannabis it was.

What’s your niche in the cannabis space? Why?

I help women elevate their wellness with cannabis. I connect them to quality flowers, support their well-being, and inspire them to elevate to their highest potential. I feel cannabis has allowed me to be more comfortable on my healing journey, and as a healer, I wanted to remove the stigma of cannabis use for other women.

She adds a unique perspective to the industry because she uses cannabis to manage her multiple sclerosis symptoms. Queen Tracey is determined to show up in the industry as her best self, dedicated to total well-being with two princesses as her motivation.

Did you face any legal or criminal barriers to cannabis entry? If so, how did you overcome the barriers?

No

What are some talents, skills, experience, and knowledge you picked up while in cannabis?

Every day I’m learning a new way of doing things in the marketplace. I’m a business processor analyst, so I’m curious about how the industry works. I research, question, and analyze the corporate setup and the laws in which they can operate as a business. I think it’s important to know the laws. When you know how it works then, you learn how to move properly.

What tech tools did you use to start your brand?

Social media- google research, YouTube.

How do you stand out from other brands within your target population?

Actually, I’m still working on that. My focus is connecting to the women and not solely selling to women. I want to educate about the benefits cannabis can provide to those wanting holistic relief to their health issues.

Tell us about your top-selling, promotional, or new product or service.
