This May 2, 2022 article features Tokeativity in the discussion of legalization and parenting.

Samantha Montanaro, co-founder of Tokeativity, a global feminist community for active cannabis consumers and business owners, believes keeping women from cannabis is more about not trusting women with their bodies and their babies, than anything else. She points to studies that shows cannabinoids occur naturally in breast milk, as supporting evidence.“

It really does make me so upset because it’s such a hard transition to begin with and moms are just looking for ways to feel better, to feel healthy, so they can show up for their baby,” Montanaro told Leafly. “It’s really hard to be a great mom when you’re in so much pain you can’t function or when you’re so out of whack with your hormones. That’s where I see a lot of benefit, especially with CBD.”

“I have to make a big change now” 

said Studio Linear founder, Andrea Beaulieu, as she was laying next to her daughter at bed time, feeling heart race uncontrollably. She felt like she was about to die. Enough was enough.

Most adults have experienced a moment similar to this. That “AHA” moment where you realize that you, and only you, are going to make the change that needs to happen for your physical, emotional and spiritual health.

That moment, for Andrea, wasn’t the usual and all-too-common-these-days “I have to stop drinking alcohol now” moment. This moment was loaded with many layers of choices that were about to affect Andrea’s business and her ability to provide for her family of four. This was complicated.

Big Alcohol, after-all, was funding Andrea’s business and as the Creative Director for wine and beverage campaigns geared towards moms it was Andrea’s job to know and love that alcohol she was creating designs.

“This really pissed me off. It really started to bother me that the messaging for these alcoholic beverages, targeted to women and mothers, was that as moms we couldn’t deal with it ourselves…that we need alcohol to manage the stress of parenting.”  – Andrea Beaulieu

In this compelling interview below, Tokeativity Co-Founder and CEO, Samantha Montanaro talks with Andrea about going from Wine Mom to Canna Mom, as well as how Andrea pivoted her creative agency, Studio Linear, from alcohol to Cannabis! 

As Cannabis is legalized and marketed to massive audiences of new consumers, innovative cannabis and CBD brands are re-defining the stoner stigma and changing the world with their beautiful imagery absent of tie dye, stoner bros and women in skimpy clothes. Andrea and her team at Studio Linear are on the cutting edge of futuristic, beautiful and clever Cannabis branding, design and content creation that is genuinely changing the way consumers feel about weed, CBD and the array of many products.

“The future of cannabis branding is about a lifestyle. It will become so normal that we will start seeing incredibly packaged brands on the shelves of Target” – Andrea Beaulieu

Packaging, advertisements, billboards – this imagery really does influence the way people feel about everything. Behavioral data is worth more than oil these days. Brands have incredible power over human behavior. Cannabis branding has so much power and Studio Linear is using this power for good. The self healing revolution is HERE and women like Andrea are leading the way.

Studio Linear is accepting new clients who are looking for design services for new brands (or an existing company rebrand), logos, package design, websites, social media content and more. Check out studiolinear.com for more information and listen in on this inspiring story of how Andrea turned her pain into power.

Many people have a story when it comes to cannabis edibles – and it’s not a positive one. But should we let one bad experience forever shape our perception of cannabis? Take a bite out of the bad edible experience in this episode of The High Guide, where we explore the world of accidental ingestion – and the proper labeling and dosage that makes those incidents avoidable.

After listening to this episode you will have a better understanding of…

If you are anything like me you have been drinking alcohol more often during the pandemic. I know many of you are like me, in fact, because numerous studies have shown that middle aged women have had the most dramatic increase in alcohol consumption during pandemic times in comparison to any other demographic. We know why – this shit is stressful! Life was already stressful for parents who are juggling kids, careers, homes, friends and everything else. Add uncertain pandemic times to that mix and we are all one mishap away from a total breakdown.

My (conservative, non cannabis consuming) neighbor told me the other day that she was cracking a bottle of wine at noon nearly everyday simply to deal with parenting two kids under the age of 7, schooling and working from home all at the same time. She also spoke to how crappy and stressed she feels and how it is not helping anything…. but she is desperate for relief every single day. Drinking is so ingrained in the fabric of our society, it is hard to imagine our lives without it.

It was my pure pleasure to give her a couple bottles of my not-so-secret weapon to productivity, health, relaxation, joy and sanity: Danodan, a USDA Certified Organic, water soluble CBD elixir and ZV Botanicals CBD Bitters (organic, 100% woman owned) to add to any drink of her choice. Have your cake and eat it too, sister friend! Refreshing, relaxing cocktails without hangover, inflammation and all of the other negative side effects of alcohol. Pinch me!

I love drinking delicious things

and I know so many other people who do too! I am so incredibly stoked about CBD cocktails for this reason! I don’t have to stop drinking altogether – I am just changing what it is that I am drinking.

Here is my go-to recipe for a CBD cocktail that has endless possibilities:

I AM OBSESSED WITH THESE COCKTAILS! And my body, mind and spirit are thanking me for it! Cannabis asks us to take our healing into our own hands. Cannabis asks us to listen deeper to what our body and spirit is telling us. Cannabis is gentle and loving to our bodies and that is something that any mom can get behind!

No payment was exchanged for this promotion, ya’ll. I really just love these products that much. They are changing my life and I am excited to watch companies like ZV Botanicals and Danodan innovate consumption for future generations!
