WB: Please tell me about Happy Munkey? What was your path to the plant? What did you do originally? Indoor or outdoor grown? (Just wondering)
Vlad= V: Cannabis has always played a role in my life no matter what I was doing. I have a background in personal fitness training and music and I have been a cannabis user for over 20 years now. The first time I knew I enjoyed cannabis was when I was younger, in my teenage years. I grew up in the Hamilton Heights section of Harlem during the 80s and 90s, and it was definitely a different time then than it is right now. New York was just rougher and tougher, so it helped for me to smoke cannabis (out of all the options available) to stay focused and optimistic. Thatʼs “the original” love story between me and cannabis. While Happy Munkey is my first foray into the formal cannabis market, I am no stranger to the traditional market. Looking back at it now, Happy Munkey was a collective effort of my life long experiences in cannabis, music and health.
