A little bit about myself:

I am a friendly people-person, a teacher at heart and natural matchmaker. Contrary to the outdated ‘stoner’ stereotype, I am an active, educated, and articulate cannabis consumer.

I've worked with a variety of cannabis start-up companies and have connections in all areas of Vancouver's growing market.

In the last 10 years, I’ve studied the effects and benefits of integrating cannabis into mental health, creative and wellness practices. I find cannabis fascinating and love sharing my knowledge and experience.

November 12, 2019 | In-Depth Information Session

I reached out to Mary for her expertise as I am new to medical cannabis and looking for alternatives to big pharma. Mary is incredibly knowledgeable and you can tell she wants to share information to help you wherever you are on your journey—from “just dipping your toe in” to experienced. She helped me by suggesting some books and organizations to look into that would’ve taken me a while to find on my own because there’s so much information out there it’s hard to figure what is fluff and what is reliable. Our chat was easy-going and comfortable. I really appreciate your guidance!

Mary is a fantastic resource for information related to the cannabis industry. She's easy to talk to, open to answering questions, and able to connect you to other resources she thinks can be of help.

I booked Mary to talk through an idea and service in the cannabis industry. Mary listened very closely and shared her thoughts and directions for the idea. We plan to chat again soon and further develop the idea. Highly recommend!

I had a Sunset Session with Mary. We sat on the grass and had a beautiful view of the beach. We both talked about our experiences with cannabis. I really enjoyed it and glad Mary has a service like this. You pick the setting, Mary brings the flower, and see where the conversation takes you!

I've been interested in exploring cannabis careers for some time and I was referred to Mary to "pick her brain." We had a great session over Skype and in the hour we had together, I got to share my story, interests, experience, education, and passions. Mary's a great listener and through her questions, knowledge, and ability to connect the dots, she shared her ideas, helpful resources, and gave me great insight into a possible direction that I can explore. Thanks, Mary!

Sunset session with Mary was full of good vibes, good laughs, and good conversation. It was the perfect end to a beautiful day, and I was grateful for the magical plants she shared with me!

July 25, 2019 | Nature Walk with Cannabis

I wish I could upload all the photos and videos I took from our nature walk. I feel like I’d have more creative freedom to express this adventure Mary took us on. Will have to try and make due.

2 hours to feel like a kid again. That’s what this walk gave me. Micro-dosing and forest walking go so well hand in hand. Something I would have a hard time doing with such intention on my own. But something I want to now book in once a month.

Leave your self judgement at the door, vape up with Mary and just let yourself fall into the walk.

You will be better from it. I promise. Such a feel good session.

I had a fantastic sunset session with Mary, enjoying good conversation and time spent outside. Mary is full of useful information for the experienced consumer and would be a valuable resource for those curious about cannabis. I highly recommend booking a session with her!

I had several questions about cannabis which led to an interesting and in-depth discussion. Mary explained how edibles interact with the body and what to look for and watch out for. I’ve wondered about what research is being done with cannabis, and she explained where that is at currently. Mary’s historical knowledge of the plant was impressive as well as we discussed it’s use and prominence in human history. I would recommend Mary’s service to anyone who is interested cannabis at any level - she has a wealth of information to share.
