I created Nugtopia to help push the taboo of cannabis out of society. I want a reason for everyone to smile and to think of it as a healing plant rather than a drug. The best way I could express my push for medicinal cannabis was to paint the most relatable strains and transform them into “Nug” characters. My passion for the medicinal cannabis industry came when our mother who was diagnosed with benign nodules in her breast tissue. Breast cancer runs deep in our family and our mom actually lost her mom to breast cancer. So with this new diagnosis, our mom went out to Colorado for a little while and was being treated with a concentrated form of cannabis. When she went in the hospital to do the extraction surgery, the surgeons searched for over an hour to find nothing but grains of sand that the tumors had shrunk down to. A miracle happened all due to a plant! Our mother’s story isn’t the only one out there so take some time and educate yourself on the beneficial medicinal properties of cannabis.
