If you’re attending Sundance Film Festival in Utah this week, keep an eye out for CannaSmack Ambassador Madison Ortiz, aka Happy Tokes. She’s giving away samples of CannaSmack’s all natural, cruelty free, hemp-infused lip balms plus items from their new Luxe skin care line. If you see her, say hello and ask to learn more about the benefits of hemp!
This is a special trip for Madison because Utah is the birthplace of CannaSmack. CannaSmack founder Suzanne Hoggan was born and raised in Utah, a state that’s known for its strict laws against cannabis. Losing her brother to years of prescription drug abuse inspired her to research alternative medicine. She stumbled across information about hemp and cannabis and decided to create hemp seed oil infused beauty products and educate the world about the benefits of cannabis.
MAGNETIC checked in with Madison to see what her Sundance experience has been like so far, and this is what she had to report.
Madison Ortiz: “It’s been a blast! I met Suzanne, the owner of CannaSmack for the first time and have spent some unforgettable quality time with her and her family. My friends Katie (@smokeytokeprincess) and Sam (@littleredridingkush) drove in from Wyoming to see me and help pass out CannaSmack to Sundance attendees. We passed out CannaSmack to new friends as we walked around Park City. We had a lovely experience in the YouTube/Google #TeamPixel venue, which offers an incredibly well dressed ambiance paired with exciting things to do like receive marshmallows with your selfie on it. You can try out virtual reality goggles, too!
We took a break from the venue for a day—Local tribe sister Garren @iamgarren joined Katie, Sam and myself for a day of packing up nearly 1,200 goodie bags. Each goodie bag contains: A 1oz CannaSmack LUXE Hydrating Cleansing Oil, 5 CannaSmack LUXE disposable cleansing pads, 1 CannaSmack vegan lip balm, application directions, and a discount code card. Afterwards, we enjoyed an incredible vegan and gluten free dinner.
The following day, we ventured out to pass out more CannaSmack. This time with larger gifts (and signs that read “Free Hemp Infused Lip Balm”) in hand. We received an awesome response from a diverse group of people who were genuinely interested in trying our products. I sincerely look forward to seeing and hearing all the feedback we get on social media!
Today, we had a HappyTokesTribe meetup that was hosted at “Water & Wellness” which was beyond incredible and far more profound of an experience than I ever could have imagined. Water & Wellness offers water purification and education about energy healing as it relates to water. We had a great time absorbing the magical energy of their shop, decorated in hand painted glitter floors, detailed mural walls and sacred geometry everywhere! We ended our day by being invited to a group "transformational breath experience" which was an intense hour of steady diaphragm movements. Seven of us conquering our breath alongside one another with two incredibly gifted guides leading the way and encouraging us. Truly transformative. Such a special thing to experience alongside my sisters from the tribe!”
