1. How do you define your music genre and when did you first try cannabis ?
If I had to pick one, I would say very mid 90’s early 2000’s RnB / pop * aka some of the best music out there, haha *

2. It is true there is a connection between Music and Cannabis?
Oh, easily – If you go back in history , there’s always been a connection between music & cannabis.

There’s something special that happens when you take a hit after listening to something you’ve got on – it’s like hearing it with a whole new set of ears, you feel me. Everything is amplified.
