I get asked for recommendations on everything from where to buy weed, the shows I watch, to how to train babies how to sleep through the night. It takes a village right? Here is my extensive resource list, packed with my real life picks. In a few cases I have an affiliate relationship, but in most these are just my favorite things. Like the Oprah of Weed. Except not giving anything away.


My Favorite Colorado Dispensaries

Potco Wholesale – David’s favorite medical dispensary. Buddy Boy Brands, including Potco, is making medical marijuana affordable and accessible to patients. We love this place. Medical

Doc’s Apothecary
– The Stoner Mom’s favorite neighborhood dispensary. In an unassuming warehouse location in my neck of the woods, this place has been a neighborhood staple for years. Super friendly staff. Medical + Recreational

14er Holistics– My favorite Boulder dispensary with some of the highest quality buds I’ve ever seen. Also, there are friendly dogs there. Medical + Recreational

Kind Love – The Denver dispensary that has been here since the beginning. Recommended for tourists, out of towners, and medical newbies. Medical + Recreational

The Green Solution– The Stoner Mom’s recommendation for complete newbies with no medical marijuana card. With tons of locations and a very high-tech buying experience, this is a good place to start if you’ve never been inside a dispensary. Medical + Recreational

Applications + Software

My husband edits my videos with Adobe Premier. I started my YouTube channel editing my own videos with iMovie.

I edit my photography mostly in Adobe RAW and finish in Photoshop. I create my website graphics with Photoshop. For social media images, I use Canva.

David edits our podcast in Audition.

Lights + Shooting Technique

I usually film my videos by myself when the house is empty. I use a basic ring light and two large softboxes. I try to use window light as much as possible. I use an external mic by Rode.
