My friend Jenny Sansouci has been in this wellness game for a loooooong time. I pat myself on the back for being going planty before it was really cool in 2008, but Jenny started her own platform way back in 2006. Not that it’s a comparison game. We know Jenny now as the brains and passion behind Healthy Crush, and now the author of her new spectacular book, The Rebel’s Apothecary: A Practical Guide To The Healing Magic of Cannabis, CBD and Mushrooms, and as an amazing messenger on how to support the health of those dealing with cancer based on her experience of being right there with her father, CBD, shrooms and cannabis, research and hope in tow, as he’s battled pancreatic cancer.
Jenny wasn’t didn’t always have a crush on health. What blew my mind is how Jenny overcame issues with alcohol, party drugs and a dusk-til-dawn party lifestyle. Way back when, she was the first person to dismiss meditation and she used to show up at work hungover. (Which sounds like my own personal nightmare.) Through hard work, an obsession with information and perseverance, she changed her lifestyle and became the well-known wellness gal she is today. Unlike me, Jenny is a research fanatic and I applaud her dedication to learning directly from scientists, doctors, mycologists, herbalists, and so many incredible experts in the cannabis and mushroom fields and then sharing it all with stories, so we less research-inclined can eat it all up!
