"Be"yond Cannabis Speaker Series

We believe that consuming cannabis isn't about getting the strongest strain or seeing how much you can consume in one sitting. Instead cannabis should be used more purposefully & responsibly to enhance it's effects. In our opinion there are six reasons to use cannabis; relaxation, recovery, energy, focus, creativity, & meditation. Finding the right dosage and right method of consumption takes time. And let's face it, cannabis isn't for everyone. However if you're new to cannabis or are looking to learn more about how to use cannabis more purposefully... 

Come join as one of our events below to learn how you can "Be Free", "Be Creative" & "Be Victorious" as we take you "Be"yond just consuming cannabis.

Sarah Bonsall

Sarah grew up in Massachusetts. In 2010 she moved away to from everything she knew to be in Colorado. Her days are filled with lots of movement and activity.  "I'm a skeptic, I like to get my own answers - yoga/movement is the best way for me to do that, and get to know myself on a deeper level."  Throughout her practice, which began around 3 years ago, she discovered her talent for movement. Her hands are her comfort zone and is the reason she focuses on hand balancing. She found that comfortability by asking her body a series of questions on a daily basis and overtime learned to respond in the appropriate ways.  "If there is a physical asana/task/movement that I cannot do, it is not because that physical asana/task/movement isn't for me and it's not because the body I was given, just doesn't do that, it's simply because I am not ready."  By dissecting that asana/task/movement,  the big picture falls into building blocks and she better see's the areas that need more work.  "With the proper focus and work, I will one day be ready for that asana/task/movement."

Heidi Keyes is the creator of Puff, Pass & Paint, the first legal cannabis-friendly art class. In 2009, she graduated from Carthage College in Wisconsin with a BA in Studio Art, and relocated to Denver, Colorado in 2010. Heidi is passionate about cannabis for both medical and recreational uses. She started Puff, Pass & Paint in January of 2014, and it was quickly apparent that art and cannabis are extremely complimentary, encouraging laughter, creativity, and introspection. She and Michael Eymer, founder of Colorado Cannabis Tours, merged businesses in 2015. Together they are expanding their classes, tours, and other cannabis-friendly activities to other legal states through parent company CannabisTours.com, which currently offers classes in Colorado, Washington DC, Oregon, Nevada, and California. When she isn't making art, she enjoys cooking, hiking, camping, and traveling, both for work and pleasure. She is still aspiring to roll the perfect joint.
