My name is Michele Parrotta, but as you may have guessed, my friends call me Mimi. Since growing up in Kingston, Ontario, I have been a cannabis consumer and advocate for the past 42 years of my life.
I am 57 years old and have worked in the Cannabis industry for the last 5 years as a Director and an Educator. To be a huge part of the legalization in Canada has been an experience I cannot even put into words.
The Industry is filled with people from all walks of life from both the legal side of things as well as the craft and heirloom market, with so many ideas, products the opportunities are quite endless. In 2019 we introduced edibles, vape pens and concentrates in our legal space!
Older generations of people are finally understanding the other consumption methods and realizing that they don’t have to light up anymore to reap the benefits of this amazing plant! But the best part has been teaching the more mature people about Cannabis and how it helps in our everyday lives.
