Gift guide for your conscious friend

One way or another, this pandemic pushed us towards mindfulness, thoughtfulness, awareness, you name it. As a life-threatening situation, it made us delve more into the human condition, all the risks we are facing on this planet, and how much responsibility we take for these. We feel now more willing to redesign our lives and become conscious of how our actions, decisions, and attitude affect others. In this general climate of introspection and collectivity, getting back-to-normal might turn into a much more sophisticated game. I’m already scratching my head trying to figure out what to gift my friends and family...

Weed Rituals with Mimi Lam

What’s your personal weed ritual?  My weed ritual has changed a lot over the last several years and I’ve incorporated weed more and more into my everyday life. In general, I roll joints and smoke them on my balcony or on walks after a long day’s work and when I just need some brain space to think. I also sometimes consume oil or capsules before I go to bed, which has been a real game-changer for my sleep.
