At Mavuno of Ohio, our Brand Ambassadors are not just individual personalities; they act as the embodiment of our values, passion, and commitment to your health and wellness. Meet Justin, whose warm personality and extensive knowledge allow us to connect with you on a deeper level
Q:As a Brand Ambassador, how do you see your position contributing to increased representation and diversity within the cannabis industry?
I think our going into the community and spreading positive news about cannabis in a black-owned business helps a lot with diversity because there are very few of us in it.
Q:What advice would you give to those aspiring to be in the cannabis industry?
The advice I would give someone is to never stop researching and discovering new incredible things that cannabis can do. Don’t limit yourself; go get it!
Q: How has cannabis positively impacted your life?
Cannabis has a positive impact on my life because it helps with stress and pain.
Q: As an advocate for cannabis education, what key messages or information do you feel are important for people to know?
Cannabis helps the body achieve homeostasis. Additionally, cannabis could potentially heal better without combustion of the flower. And, don’t be a stat chaser!
Q:How do you engage with the local community, and are there any community-focused initiatives or causes that are close to your heart?
I engage with the community with my genuine personality, and the event that I found the most fun was the Fireside Chat event hosted by Harvest last year.
Q:In honor of Black History Month, can you tell us about a figure from Black history who has inspired you?
There are many black figures who inspire me because they are all strong, but the one who inspired me the most was MLK. Despite the hatred and ignorance, he still found a way to bring peace and unite races for the greater good.
Q: What's your go-to cannabis strain, and what do you love most about it? Any special memories or experiences associated with it?
There are many strains that are my favorite, but I’m going to say Sour Blue Diesel by Buckeye Relief because it has a fresh taste, not too high in THC, but always pretty good on terps. I had a good experience with SBD when I was in pain; this strain tends to help alleviate pain because of its CBG content.
Q:What's the last show you binge-watched?
The last show that I binge-watched was ‘The Brothers Sun,’ an American Chinese series on Netflix. It’s a pretty dope show.
Q:If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be and your superhero name?
The superpower that I would have is telepathy, allowing me to read minds and move things with my mind. My superhero name would be ‘BrainStorm’.
Q:What's your dream vacation destination?
Q:If you could have any animal as a pet, real or fictional, what would it be?
Appa, the flying bison from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Q:If you could master one new skill instantly, what would it be?
How to flip $1000 into $100,000.
