Bogged down by the loneliness and uncertainty of lockdown, friends Tekisha Harvey, Diana Sanmiguel and Kinisha Correia, brainstormed the idea for Cannacurious magazine during one of many Zoom catch-up sessions.
“Not only were we helping each other stay afloat mentally, but we also started discussing building something together. We had talked about opportunities in the cannabis industry, and CBD as a great remedy for the stress of the time. Eventually, all of that collided and the idea for CannaCurious magazine took root,” Harvey shares.
In only a few short months, the trio pulled their skills together and published the inaugural issue of the women’s cannabis lifestyle magazine in September.
Their mission, Correia says, is to educate women about how cannabis can enhance their lives, and shift the male-dominated narrative around the plant. As women of color, the team is also deeply committed to representation, inclusivity and diversity.
“Our readers are just like us – women in their 30s and 40s from diverse backgrounds, who are looking for healthy ways to relieve stress, maintain wellbeing and live their best lives. We knew we would love to read something like this, so we created it,” Sanmiguel explains.
The launch issue of the magazine hones in on the power of CBD by presenting facts about what it really is and sharing women’s stories about how it has helped them. The issue also tackles a variety of lifestyle topics, including CBD for sex, cancer and mental health, and highlights women of color breaking barriers within the industry.
