What got you into the industry: Our friend Brad suddenly passed away from cancer in June 2021. We inherited his 3 cannabis clones– 2 Jack Herer’s & a dosido. Jesse ( my boyfriend ) and I took very good care of our precious ( Brad’s plants ) and we had a great harvest. Thanks to Brad’s clones I was able to bake with the cannabis we grew. I started going to the VT Cannabis luncheons, and met some very nice people in the VT Cannabis Industry who encouraged me to enter the 2022 VT Heady Grower’s Cup in the THC Edibles. After much debate, I entered a Gluten-free Canna Carrot Cake in the competition, and won 1st Place in the Edibles Category. Thanks to Brad, I now have my dream job! Every year now, we grow a cannabis plant in memory of our buddy Brad ! As well as being a previous medical card patient for chronic pain.
