Hi 👋🏼 I’m Anthony Gonzales and I wanted to share my journey into the cannabis industry with you. 

Several years ago, I was overweight and suffering from a variety of stomach issues that were becoming progressively debilitating. At the time, I was working long hours in a high stress role and not taking care of myself. 

My doctors prescribed me several medications over the course of a year to help relieve inflammation and reduce pain, but nothing seemed to work. These different medications often made things worse as they had their own set of side affects 💊 After lots of trial and error I was starting to grow helpless. 

It wasn’t until I started to do research and discover the full benefits of the cannabis plant that I discovered the endocannabinoid system and how it works in our body. I started incorporating a daily routine of CBD in addition to microdosing THC throughout the day. 

It had a major impact on my condition and helping me recover. I started using cannabis to support my fitness routine and found it made a huge difference. The gym and working out became fun again as I played around with different strains prior to my workouts 🏃🏽‍♂️and to aid in recovery.

Having such an impactful experience with cannabis, I knew that this was the industry that I wanted to devote my life to supporting. Stigma was founded based on a mission of destroying outdated cannabis stereotype 💪🏽 To show the world there are cannabis consumers who lead healthy, active, and productive lives. People of all different ages and background who are using cannabis to support their overall health and wellness. A growing movement of people dedicated to #RedefiningCannabis for generations ahead 🌱💚
