Before I became a unicorn, I dabbled briefly in the music industry. I was one half of the female rap duo, “The Doobie Sisters”. I can’t believe I’m even divulging this embarrassing information about myself, but here I am… typing away!
We started off 2018 with a remarkable Women Grow event hosted by Social Media Unicorn. The magical night focused on professionals mingling and networking with the hopes of learning how to incorporate cannabis into a fitness routine.
There was a great energy in the air as the gregarious crowd waited for the festivities to begin. The attendees enjoyed an open bar and delicious hors devours while meeting and greeting new and familiar faces. The head unicorn in charge, Krista Whitley also took to the floor and interacted with guests before moderating the event.
Our three amazing guest speakers for the ‘Get Lit and Fit’ event were: Rebecca Perrick, Jessie Sutphin and Deuvall Dorsey. Each of these fitness enthusiasts shared their do’s and don’ts of marijuana consumption before, during, and after their workouts. The common thread between all three guests was their desire to remove the stigma of cannabis users. Guests of the event were also treated with a detailed discussion on the differences between Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
The next Women’s Grow event will take place on the 2nd Thursday of February.
On December 16th, our team was on site at Jenny’s North Las Vegas location to show our appreciation for their dispensary team and their patients. We came armed with swag, information, and one goal: to educate consumers about Caviar Gold and their fantastic line of products that launched in November in Nevada.
Go where you are celebrated. I used to spend all my time trying to prove the folks wrong who criticize me, thinking it would make me better. Constructive criticism and feedback come from a place of love and authentic celebration of who you are. That’s why it’s important to get in where you fit in.
Learn to fall in love with life’s no’s. Every no is one no closer to the life changing yes. Rather than fighting the no, teach yourself to visualize that it is just one step closer to all of the bigger things you are meant to do. This one has been a rough lesson for me because I am impatient and I want it now, but I could not have the company and life I have today without all of those no’s.
Accept that people are imperfect. Lord, my friend, I fight this on the daily. Imperfections, mistakes, what the hell were you thinking, why can’t you just be what I want you to be- all that is a daily battle, but I try with my heart and soul to accept that the beauty of human beings is in their flaws. I want folks to accept me for all my fearless boldness and loud mouthed opinions, so that acceptance is something I strive for.
More than anything, know that you are appreciated. You are loved. Even in your darkest moments remember that it is darkest before the dawn and the good Lord is giving you great challenges because you are meant for great leadership.
I was 25 when my doctor told me that it would be difficult to have children due to my endometriosis. I foolishly assumed I was cursed with bad cramps before being diagnosed with. My doctor suggested prescribed medicines and multiple birth control methods, but they usually made me feel sick. Since, I was already using marijuana recreationally, I decided to use it for my menstrual pain. Once I learned that endometriosis was linked to endocannabinoid deficiency (ECD), I knew that cannabis would be the best method to battle my pain. However, I had to find out the hard way that smoking increases blood clots, but dried flowers and/or CBD oil works best because it combusts the cannabis and releases a range of cannabinoids.
Take time to unplug
Use what you know!

Let’s start with a little background.
Let’s talk Treatment
- Get to know your brands

- Have fun!
The first month of a new career always brings fear and excitement.
I’m glad to say that here at Social Media Unicorn it has been a lot more excitement than fear. Everyone is great! Not only is my entire team fun to work with, they all have an in-depth knowledge of the cannabis culture and the wants and needs of the community we serve. With that being said, I am starting a weekly blog to inform and educate about the new innovative products, services, and happenings within our community. Stay tuned each week to see what this Unicorn is getting into 😉
Just recently, we had the pleasure of hosting a patient appreciation day for Tahoe Hydro Company with the lovely people over at Medizin. They operate one of the premier dispensaries that cater to Las Vegas and the surrounding areas. Medizin, unlike many other dispensaries, is also involved in cultivation. They have some award winning flowers like Chloe, one of the most medically beneficial strains that is offered in Las Vegas. We had a great time representing Tahoe Hydro Company while we were there. THC is a boutique cultivator out of Carson City, NV, that is sure to fit the needs and wants of any consumer out there. They have award winning strains: Blackjack (S), Gelato 45 (H), Tahoe Hydro OG (I), all winning their respective categories at the 2016 Jack Herer Cup. THC also just entered the preroll game with the introduction of their STIX line, currently offering Tahoe Hydro OG. Needless to say, they know what they are doing over there at Tahoe Hydro Company. We passed out tons of Tahoe swag and educated patients on our products and specials. It was great meeting and creating future Tahoe fans! I loved hearing all the positive feedback regarding our products. Huge thank you to Tanya and the whole crew at Medizin for making my first patient appreciation day a success!
All in all, these first few weeks have been an adventure and a blessing. I’m so lucky to be surrounded by people who are so passionate about cannabis. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me as a Unicorn. Be sure to tune in next week for my next post and mark your calendars for our upcoming events!
