What does wellness mean to you?
Wellness for me looks like maintaining healthy bonds with friends, painting and drawing daily, exercise, nature walks, cannabis, great hygiene, good music, and positive vibes.
How does cannabis enhance your wellness experience?
Cannabis inspires me to focus and to stay off my phone lol. I love how my thoughts become more vivid and more colorful. Sometimes, I find myself over thinking but most times that’s exactly what I need to accomplish the task at hand.
Tell us something fun or interesting about your wellness activity
Before I was tattooing, I discovered my passion for the arts through drawing $25 tattoo designs for friends and family. During the time I was working as a pool monitor, but not long after my recent discovery, I quit my job to become a tattoo artist full time.
From there, I discovered my love for mural work and have been painting murals ever since.
No matter how you choose to enjoy your cannabis, the feeling you get when you encounter your happy moment is unmistakable. What does your happy moment look like or feel like?
That moment looks like me giggling with friends in nature, walking barefoot in the grass and smelling the fragrance of the trees while feeling like thereʼs no past or future, only the present moment.
Cannabis is one of my best friends. I look forward to trying new strains and jotting down my experience.
Try Caliva’s clear-headed cannabis today, and focus on the things that you love most.
