Forming a deeper connection w. Cannabis

As much as we love a huge green salad, smoothie, or juice, we’re discussing going green in a whole new way today. In this episode, Black Girl In Om Founder Lauren Ash and Art Director Deun Ivory sit down with DeJanae Evins, an expert on cannabis, wellness, and their various intersections. As the creator of and creative mastermind behind Green Goddess Glow and HighTide Tours, DeJanae educates on how to incorporate cannabis into your self-care with intention across the globe and uncover new experiences of life in the beautiful city of Los Angeles. Whether you’re a cannabis connoisseur, curious about the science behind it, have no experience beyond media perceptions, or fall somewhere in between, we’re certain this will be an enriching, educational, and easeful listening experience. As a woman growing into her own glow, DeJanae is committed to promoting the divine feminine through education about conscious cannabis use and self-care practices. Consider this an invitation for you to find your own glow and dive deeper into the world of conscious consumption with DeJanae. Sit back, get comfy, and let this deeply knowledgeable and incredibly intentional green goddess get you right. We’re sure you won’t regret it.
