She shares about Cannabis and leads the way to obtain legal access to Cannabis in Canada for those she meets daily. Cannajos was diagnosed with and suffers from Multiple Sclerosis which is debilitating on the worst days with bouts of relapse being a possibility at any given moment. Cannabis is the only relief she has found from symptoms without any unpleasant side effects. It has brought back an appetite, the ability to get a full night’s rest, and helped with depression and anxiety. Migraines have also been relieved this way. Cannajos went from having debilitating migraines sometimes daily for months on end to a migraine once a month if at all. She has also found relief from spasticity, which is an uncontrollable tightening of muscles. Vaporizing almost instantly relaxes those muscles and Cannajos is able to carry on with her day.
It is more important to understand what the Weed Girls are not. At this time, none of the women are professional models or have journalism backgrounds. They have regular jobs in addition to their work within the community. Unlike most of the other Weed Girls seen online, they offer value and not just cute pictures. These girls, or women are individuals with a mission to end the negative stigma Cannabis users experience. Building a growing community of strong minded, passionate women to help each other and the cause.
For now, they appear at local events and at industry related expos. Talking to the public, showing them that using Cannabis doesn’t make you lazy, scary or incapable. The bigger plan is open legal dispensaries in Canada with the roll-out of recreational Marijuana happening next year, which the whole country is looking forward to!
