Hi John and UPG, I am 73 years old and an avid singles and doubles tennis player. I never played a match I didn’t enjoy. I have had two shoulder surgeries and a knee surgery, all worth it.
Steve, you’ve been one of the leading voices in the hemp industry since 2016 – can you share with our community a little about yourself, and how you started Steve’s Goods?
My story with this deeply medicinal herb began a long time ago as a recreational consumer of cannabis. Then, in my mid 40s I began to experience chronic pain and neurological symptoms from repressed PTSD as a younger man. I've since made many lifestyle changes to reduce stress on my mind and body, and have turned to many different products and services to support my healing and recovery, including hemp paste.
My earliest memory is of my mother and I having dinner. I remember her backhanding me so hard that I toppled over, chair and all. My crime? I smacked my lips. I was only 3 or 4 years old.
I am in Toronto Ontario. We have federal and provincial legal cannabis laws for medicine and recreation and we can grow our own plants indoors or outside. My whole family has greatly benefited from cannabis use.
I am a 68 year old woman who was diagnosed with Lupus, five years ago. Prior to that I endured surgeries totaling more than 15!
