Fumée is smoke. And galante is romantic.
I am a 47-year-old woman. I am a business owner. A mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife, an aunt, a friend. And a marijuana lover!
My favorite way to consume cannabis has always been to smoke it. Rolled or in a pipe, I simply love the immediate effect.
I love this plant. We've had our good times and our bad times. And recently, I've rediscovered edibles, been introduced to CBD, researched its medical benefits and, on the path to its legalization, I have met some kickass women in this very unique industry. Women with passionate voices that need to be heard. Here are a few of them who have inspired me with their creativity, integrity and compassion: Irie Silkirk, Camille Chacra who founded Shop Allume and of course Dr. Uma Dhanabalan, who, at her one-hour presentation at the O'Cannabiz Expo in Toronto last June, managed to convince my 70-year-old father that cannabis could be a viable alternative to his numerous prescription drugs and that he could use it without fear.
So, here I am. Here to stay. Here to experience this massive cultural and scientific transformation in our country, if not our planet. I am constantly meeting new and wonderful collaborators. I am always researching and testing new high-end accessories for smoking marijuana, so come back and explore our new additions often!
I could not be more thankful to be part of it all!
