How has cannabis improved your life?
Cannabis has been a powerful tool in my life spiritually, emotionally and mentally. I feel so much more in my power and energized with cannabis, in particular with Sativa strains. Since I first tried this medicine plant I have grown more aware of my body and senses including; taste, smell, breath and thoughts. Indica supports me in slowing down, allowing me to meditate. This allows me to be more present with my thoughts and has led to wiser decisions and acting with intention.
This medicine has made me stronger and encourages me to keep improving and never give up. It reminds me of the power of my breath and to stay centered. It reminds me that I am alive. This amazing plant challenges me when I feel low and it inspires me to be more proactive.
What do you do for fun outside of the space?
I’m a freelance model and I like to work to support independent local fashion business and conscious brands from around the world. I enjoy being in front of the camera and being part of creating a positive outcome. I was recently part of a music video for one of my favorite artists ‘Draco Rosa’ for the song is called ‘En las horas was triste”. Draco is a spiritually aware musician from Puerto Rico, the same island I was born and raised. I have listened to his music since I was 14 years old. When I first started smoking I would blast my headphones with his music because his lyrics are so full of love and inspiration of self worth and romance!
What is something mermaidY about you?
I feel the healthiest by the ocean. I grew up going to the beach and would go surfing with my friends every weekend. My family typically would all get together to go to the beach and spend all day together sharing food and dancing under the sunset. I loved ‘shell hunting’ and I would always get covered in sand and take long beach naps. There was a period of time when I wanted to go deeper into nature so I decided to go to Hawaii for 6 months to explore the islands of Kauai and Maui. One year ago I moved near the ocean in Santa Monica after many years living in Northern California in a beautiful mountain and forest town called ‘Nevada City.” I was able to appreciate the place because of the variety of trees and diversity of the global community. After spending so much time by the ocean and exploring the beaches in different places I have such a big appreciation for it. A bit of cannabis combined with meditation at sunset by the ocean is one of the greatest pleasures of my life.
