Meet our Founder, Ann Marie.

Some of Ann Marie’s favorite strains are Forbidden Fruit, Durban Poison, and Lemon Skunk. When it comes to smoking cannabis, Ann Marie is not much of a fan of high THC/TAC strains, rather she has more of an appreciation for the flavor and smell of the terpenes and flavonoids. The terpenes that are sought out by Ann Marie for flavor and effect include: Limonene, Myrcene, and Linalool.

Ann Marie is a twin and grew up as a tomboy in an Italian family and loves to cook, (Italian food of course!). Dexter is her 8 year old bulldog that she loves and cares for at home. Her favorite sports teams are the Patriots, Celtics, and the Yankees. She grew up in a home raised by strong Italian women and in high-school started her career in health as a pharmacy technician. In later years, Ann Marie made the switch to the beauty industry and made women feel empowered and fulfilled. It got to a point though, that things became jaded and unfulfilled within Ann Marie. The glimmer began to fade and the plastic, inauthentic, and vapid dimension began to wear on her. She had the realization that there are more important issues in the world rather than vanity. Bigger problems in the world that need someone to fight for what is truly right in just.

Ann Marie invested in herself and took a leap. She enrolled in cannabis classes offered in Connecticut and then began testifying and advocating on behalf of Connecticut medical patients to receive access to cannabis. Ann Marie soon learned that as she was showing up, Big Pharma and lobbyists against providing access to patients were showing up as well. It took two rounds of pushing forward and advocating but Ann Marie was able to make a difference. It does not end there, as there is much more work to be done.

The root of the problem is not cannabis and the “Gateway theory” has misinformed our population. Ann Marie is here to educate and empower you to take your health in wellness into your own hands.
