In this episode, we have an insightful conversation with author Danielle Simone Brand about her experiences with cannabis and parenting. We dive into the challenges faced by cannabis-related businesses on social media platforms and the importance of normalizing adult cannabis use. We also discuss the misinformation surrounding cannabis consumption and the potential impact of legalization on the industry. We explore the idea of using cannabis and other substances for pleasure and enhancing one’s well-being, as well as the societal resistance against substances that promote self-reflection.
Danielle Simone Brand is a freelance writer and the author of Weed Mom: The Canna-Curious Woman’s Guide to Healthier Relaxation, Happier Parenting, and Chilling TF Out (Ulysses Press, 2020). A few years ago, she wouldn’t have self-described as a “weed mom” but she’s found her sparkle in writing about cannabis to inform, uplift, and occasionally challenge her readers while helping push the conversation toward a more progressive place. Her articles have appeared in numerous publications including The Week, Civilized, Vice, Double Blind, What’s Up Moms, and Scary Mommy. She holds a BA from Dartmouth College and an MA from American University and has worked as a yoga teacher and trainer, a staff writer, and a researcher on issues of international conflict resolution. Danielle lives with her family and a barky terrier in the Pacific Northwest.
