Launched in 2016, High Gorgeous is the first ever mainstream cannabis beauty line created by the makers of Yummi Karma--pretty sweet, huh? Since August is Health & Beauty Month here at The Higher Path, we reached out to High Gorgeous to find out what inspired them to create this line & the benefits of incorporating cannabis into your beauty regimen!
At first glance, the man who sits before me doesn’t seem like someone who would need medical cannabis—but looks can be deceiving. It’s a common misconception that medical cannabis is only for physical ailments; but numerous patients use medical cannabis to help with mental ailments as well. For Patient A (as we’ll call him moving forward) and many others, medical cannabis plays a critical role in their day to day well-being, both physical and mental.
This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to spend some time at Higher Path Boxing with owner Kenny Artis and watched him teach one of his classes. Kenny is a patient here at The Higher Path and it was a real treat to see how cannabis helps him stay in the kind of physical and mental shape he needs to be in to teach his classes throughout the week: “I strongly believe in boxing, it transfers into everything you do in life. It teaches you not to quit, it teaches you technique, it teaches you not to give up on yourself…it teaches you that all things are possible if you just put the time and the work in.”
