Such Great Heights ft. Angelina Blessed

Angelina Blessed didn’t use cannabis until she was ten years into her fighting career, but once she tried it, she was in. “I was shocked with how well they helped me with recovery and then, during the pandemic, edibles also were helping my mental health,” says Angelina, who had a popular grey market edibles line called Blessed that she’s just now bringing over to the legal market. “I think it absolutely is the only legislation for cannabis that makes sense.”
A longtime fighter, she wants to see some laws change—How is it that Black and Indigenous people are still being arrested so many times more than whites?—but she’s still proud of legal weed.“ Alcohol prohibition was a process and what life looks like now isn’t what it will be in twenty years,” she says. “Everyone on the frontlines is showing the world just how big this market can be.”
