Episode #36 description: This week, we continue our May theme on cannabis and motherhood with two incredibly passionate and inspiring dominican mothers, Imani Jones and Shanelly Pena. We’re talking about everything from diet and herbs, the uptown cannabis scene and raising a child with autism.
Imani known as the @thehippymom on social media is an influencer/blogger and autism advocate who’s transparency and honesty is a refreshing change from traditional social media culture. Shanelly is an exquisite chef and entrepreneur who founded the @HigherDining, in order to remove the stigma of cannabis users and empower the cannabis flower.
Together we chop it up on their journeys in cannabis growing up in the diaspora of Dominican identity in NY, the not often discussed and beautiful aspects of motherhood, and how diet and herbs can influence our behavior and high.
