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

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.

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.
