Enjoy!
Nurse Heather believes in the power of cannabis to heal and teach us, and has fought hard to make sure veterans with PTSD and others in need of care get proper access to it.

A true New Yorker (in upbringing and accent), Joel Schneider found his way into the cannabis industry through a life-long appreciation and respect for the plant.

His Bud & Breakfast model of cannabis-friendly lodging is truly groundbreaking in providing a safe, secure place for consumers and patients to responsibly use cannabis. Enjoy.
