How did you become successful in your field?

 I became successful in my career by working hard — long hours and some days I went without sleep. I became disciplined. I kept the mindset of promising myself, while on my journey, to be the best version of myself with every opportunity.

What are your thoughts on a woman being elected Vice President of the United States?

I guarantee we will have a black female president in the future. As far as Kamala Harris being a Black Woman V.P, I feel like it’s long overdue and it feels good  to know woman can be powerful as well as man.

Boss Bae Fashionista On Tackling Goals, Launching Clothing Lines Plus 

Catapulting herself into her own online e-commerce, Kathy Smith, designer transformed herself into a full time entrepreneur. Ditching occupational therapy, Smith said she has no regrets. If anything, she said, she has learned how to use her skills to maneuver through life’s obstacles. 

 

“ Success does not come overnight, it’s a full-time grind and hustle. It’s days you might earn 20K in a week and then there are days you might earn $500 a month. Managing your money is important, if not you’ll be in the hole.”

 
What is your profession?

 I am a full-time entrepreneur. I recently completed college for occupational therapy, but I decided to dedicate my time and energy 100% into my own business. I do not have any regrets on my decision of being a business woman.

 

 

 

 

What services does your job offer?

I currently have an online business where I sell activewear clothing mens and women. I am hoping to add more to my mens collection, and add kids clothing later down the line. 

 
How did you become successful in your field?

 I am nowhere near where I want to be, however, consistency is essential in this field. Each day I am accomplishing new goals, and prevailing through every obstacle. I have mastered many skills and learning techniques that have helped me reach success, but I am still climbing up the ladder. 

“The fact that I can take my CBD and have a peace of mind/relaxation afterwards is essential. ” 

– Kathy Smith

 

 

 

 

What stresses or obstacles do you have to deal with in your profession?

The stress obstacles I deal with on a daily basis are making sure each new style I release is liked by my customers. Sometimes it can be hard picking the appropriate style for different individuals with different styles and taste. If I drop a new style and 70 percent of customers do not take a liking to it, I will lose money, and in this business who wants to lose money?

At what age, or when, did you first start using cannabis and CBD products?

 I started using cannabis/CBD products over 10 years ago, I was introduced to it in high school by some close friends.

 

How often do you integrate cannabis and or CBD into your  routine?

I use cannabis/CBD products three to five times a week depending on what type of day I have. Cannabis/CBD products calm me down after a hectic and stressful day.

 

 

 

 

 

What positive effects does cannabis/CBD have on you?

 The positive effects cannabis has on me are relaxation and peace of mind. Being an entrepreneur, you are tested daily and have different deadlines you need to meet — orders shipped, marketing and more. The fact that I can take my CBD and have a peace of mind/relaxation afterwards is essential.

 

 

What is your favorite strain of cannabis and why?

Honestly, I do not have a favorite. It might sound crazy, but each brand I had thus far has been great, but now that this question has been presented I may need to start comparing brands I like best. 

 

What is your favorite CBD product and why?

 

My favorite CBD products are the gummy kind. As a kid I always loved gummy bears, so being able to take it in that form is a major plus. 

 

What advice could you give to women that want to follow in your footsteps?

 

 If I had to give advice to all my sisters, I’d tell them to be patient. Success does not come overnight, it’s a full-time grind and hustle. It’s days you might earn 20K in a week and then there are days you might earn $500 a month. Managing your money is important, if not you’ll be in the hole. 

 

“I am constantly thinking of new ways to become a better person to everyone that is in life. ” 

– Kathy Smith

 

How has Covid affected your business and personal life?

Covid-19 has affected my business in a positive way because with people working from home they shop online more, especially because everything has been locked down. However, the downside is many people have lost their jobs due to Covid-19, which means fewer people are ordering online that are out of work.

What has 2020 taught you?

2020 has taught me to be grateful for everything I have, you can lose it all in a drop of a dime. It has taught me to save more, you never know when you’ll need it for a rainy day.

In so many words explain what goes through a woman’s mind throughout a day?

I cannot speak on what goes through other women’s minds, but I can speak on what goes through mines. I am constantly thinking of new ways to become a better person to everyone that is in life. I always think of new business opportunities, and what I need to do to get to the next level. Honestly, my brain is always going nonstop. I wish I could turn it off sometimes, because I’ll literally drown in my own thoughts. 

 

What advice can you give a man from a woman’s point of view on romance and life?

The advice I can give a man from my POV is understanding and communication. Communication is essential and to communicate effectively you need to understand. Many times we talk and talk, but without understanding, what are we saying? That’s why understanding is important. 

 

“Success does not come overnight, it’s a full-time grind and hustle. It’s days you might earn 20K in a week and then there are days you might earn $500 a month. Managing your money is important, if not you’ll be in the hole. ” 

– Kathy Smith

What are your thoughts on a woman being elected Vice President of the United States? 

Honestly, I am not into politics like I should be. I do not feel any type of way. I can only pray regardless if male or female that they make the right decisions, and lead by example. I do believe that one day we will have a woman as president, daily the world is changing, and I think this will happen sooner than we all think.

Executive Profile: A Skater’s High Rise Into Cannabis 

Before becoming the boss, Erin Coffey and his buddies spent their leisure time skating and smoking pot. A lifestyle, Coffey said, inspired the creative launch of High Rise Co., HRC. Although Coffey was encouraged by the multitude of compliments on his gear from other skaters, it was deeper than t-shirts and skater fashion. According to Coffey, HRC’s inception bridged skateboarding with music and art, too.

The 420 Vibe

 

That was almost 11 years ago. Noone seemed to care, HRC was a company of skaters expressing their style. But when it transformed into a media network and marketing agency in cannabis, LA-LA Land noticed. These days, as blunt ashes fall onto the ashtray, Coffey’s is easily one of the recognizable forerunners of cannabis.

 

Headquartered, in Beverly Hills, HRC represents the cannabis industry’s leading influencers and premier brands, including Stiiizy, Summit Boys and more. Before Covid-19, HRC also threw the most talked about ragers, attracting LA’s canna-socialites and celebrities ready to party and down to spark. Even Dr. Greenthumb’s, Wonderbrett, saw HRC’s vision in giving cannabis a well-rounded, good old fashion — marketing, digital media, apparel production, brand development and sales — makeover. And presently collaborating with HRC.

 

Two Girls, One Bong

The HRC gang brought cannabis culture to centerstage — the internet. It’s not that other people or influencers were not trying to appeal to those smokers who cypher in seclusion. But everyone seemed to want to be the loudest voice in cannabis, but Coffey’s was louder. 

 

He sparked conversations and dared to be bold. As a result, his team launched Two Girls, One Bong, 2G1B, on High Rise TV, HRTV on YouTube. 

 

To-date, 2G1B has hundreds of thousands of followers with millions upon millions of views. The success of the show also inspired more content. As their audience grew, HRC featured product reviews, unboxings and even joint-rolling videos. There were also smoke seshes on HRTV with prominent influencers.

They Get Higher And Higher

Last September, HRTV also held its first three and half hour —“Smoke Olympics,” featuring Cana-influencer Macdizzle and Florida tattoo artist, Andrew Samuels. 

 

His efforts cornered the attention of marijuana enthusiasts along with the “cana-curious” ones. Through this approach, Coffey ossified stoner cliches. HRC along with Coffey’s introspective is presently rewriting the lexicon of pot.

There’s a romantic, yet reverent homage with a deep respect for cannabis lifestyle and culture at HRC, which he said is the focus of his agency. Everything HRC does is strategic.

 

“We need people who are in the culture and understand the plant,” he said.

 

With attention to the cannabis industry, Coffey said he hopes he can be amongst the canna-leaders working to change the cannabis narrative.

A Tale of Two LA Gamers And Their Epic Adventures in Cannabis

In his free time, Mac is a member of the Resistance in a galaxy at war. He’ll go into battle for the day, a few hours at least. On other days, the 40-year-old dad is busy with his kids, work, errands and other daily demands. 

So when he finds the time, he spends it smoking cannabis and playing video games. In the last few weeks, he’s been hooked on “Star Wars Battlefront II”, an EA Sports game inspired by the Star Wars movie franchise.

Living His Star Wars Fantasy

The Philadelphia native, who now resides in Burbank, reached for his vape pen.

“I’m a Star Wars fan,” he said as he took a toke. “This game takes me to a place where I am a Jedi.”

This day he’s playing as Rey.

“I smoke a little bit before and during the game. It mellows me. It gets me in a [good] mood,” he added.

Meanwhile Across Town… In Northeast Los Angeles

Ify, 32, from Highland Park, finished setting up his camera to go live on Twitch, a social video streaming app where people watch people play video games. He has been streaming on Twitch for over six years.

“It started as a little thing and it blew up when I started doing more video game content,” he said as he logged into the game.

When he’s not playing video games, he’s also running around after his kid or creating content through his comedy, writing and acting. But gaming, he shared passionately, is something he’s done his entire life.

“It’s something that I thought that I’d always be doing,” he said. “But not that I would be making money from it. Definitely not. My dad didn’t think that either.”

Not All Players Can Use Cannabis and Play

 

According to Ify, despite the relaxation cannabis offers when combined with gaming, pro gamers aren’t allowed to use cannabis during the events or tournaments. Pro gaming tourneys also like the Electronic Sports Leagues, ESL, follow the same rules and regulations as actual sports by the World Doping Agency. Cannabis is listed on the organization’s list of banned substances. Although, scientifically speaking, cannabis hasn’t been pegged as a performance-enhancing drug, gaming officials think it is, making cannabis and gaming a touchy and controversial topic (1).

According to WDP’s guidelines for ESL, saliva tests are administered to ensure the participants are not under the influence of cannabis during events/competitions. Another gaming organization, Major League Gaming, also prohibits cannabis use.

Ify said he thinks that some people perceive cannabis as “performance-enhancing.” But as the Esports and professional gaming scene continues to ramp up and more funding for cannabis research underway, the question Ify is most curious about is, “If cannabis has so many benefits does it automatically violate performance-enhancing policies?”

According to researchers, “cannabis is portrayed as a substance with detrimental effects on performance.” However, scientists have also suggested, documents show, that cannabis does reduce anxiety, which in turn could help alleviate stress and pressure during competition. 

 

IMG_7369-scaled.jpg

Cannabis, Mac explained, for him when he uses cannabis while playing his favorite games, enhances his sensations, imagination, memory and perception of time. Ify also shared the same opinion.

 

The CBD Option

While Mac is more of the cannabis type, Ify shared that there are times after playing for hours upon hours at a time, he sometimes opts for an alternative to cannabis —CBD.

CBD, a cannabidiol, is made by extracting the CBD from the cannabis plant. People have flocked to CBD because it’s not psychoactive. Without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or pharmaceutical drugs, CBD offers relief, is perceived as a natural remedy used to alleviate a number of ailments — pain, reduce anxiety and depression, alleviate cancer-related symptoms, benefit heart health and acne (2). Ify said he sometimes uses CBD to alleviate cramping and minor aches and pains after hours of playing.

Gaming and Cannabis is like Burgers and Fries

Gaming and cannabis go together like peanut butter and jelly, rice and beans, fish and chips — well you get the picture. The long time companions have been known, by its users, to create a euphoric experience depending on the type of cannabis strains and the way it is consumed. 

So what type of cannabis are gamers smoking? It depends.

There are a variety of cannabis options that include — indicas, salivas or hybrids in the form of flowers, pre-rolls, cartridges, tinctures, edibles and more. 

 

Depending on his mood, Ify said he prefers using Sativa during a marathon gaming session. But when he’s just relaxing, he prefers an Indica.

Smoking an indica may or may not put the player to sleep if used in gaming and great to relieve stress —the chill late-night gaming with couch-lock and munchies.

Mac said he prefers an indica at night, but Sativa during daytime gaming. Sativa is more of a cerebral head high, although euphoric, it is less sleep-inducing and more energizing than an indica.
