Today we have a special edition of the Alpha Woman podcast as we’re interviewing Joyce Gerber, creator of the CannaMom show, and Reverend Kelly Addison, Founder and Managing Director of Kelly’s Green Lounge.
Joyce Gerber is an attorney, advocate and writer. She is the creator and host of The Canna Mom Show where she is using her unique voice to change the narrative around cannabis and caregiving. When not advocating for cannabis normalization, Joyce is active with many community and civic organizations in Cambridge, Massachusetts, some of them being managing a rock band and running for a local political office
Reverend Kelly Addison truly embodies what she does as the founder and Managing Director of Kelly’s Green Lounge (KGL), a cannabis-friendly establishment quickly gaining notoriety within the cannabis community, and within its local community of Orono, ON. Rev. Kelly brings a wealth of experience as an educator, counsellor, and builder of community to her work in founding KGL. She is a Certified Reiki Master Practitioner, and is studying plant medicines and other healing modes to add to her skill set. Motivated by the spiritual aspects of the plant, Reverend Kelly was ordained as a Minister in 2020, and holds “The Cannabis Church of KGL” as a celebration of unity, community, and respect for the cannabis plant and her divine properties. The Church is in the process of being recognized with Vital Statistics Canada, making “Cannabis” a spiritual designation in the country.
