Green Queen Samantha Montanaro from Tokeativity

Meet our girl, role model, and just a total queen, Samantha Montanaro, Co-Founder and now CEO of Tokeativity. Tokeativity is a global community of active cannabis consumers and business owners that believe in cannabis normalization, equity and empowerment of a modern consumption culture. They connect through creative, social, and political, intersectional feminist forward activities and marketing campaigns that work to create radical, positive change.

But beyond the dope work Sam does with Tokeativity, she is also in band, Mama Sam and The Jam which is releasing an album that she wrote and played all instruments on herself on March 12! Damn right?! We told you she was a queen!

So let's dive into what Sam has to say about cannabis and her work.

Why Cannabis?

Because I believe that cannabis, the plant itself and the cannabis industry, provides an opportunity for innovative solutions to many of society's greatest issues at hand including environmental sustainability, systemic racism, mental and physical health and wellness, spiritual liberation and equality of the sexes.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about my Why Cannabis statement, psychedelics and the plant medicine revolution, civic engagement, conscious capitalism, music, gardening, progressive self directed education principles, art in all forms, JOY and rainbows!

What does authenticity mean to you?

Authenticity means that one is being honest and true with and to themselves. Listening deeper into the depths of our soul where the surface, day to day experiences are not a factor in the way one feels.

What makes you authentic?

The acceptance and embodiment of my polar reality. As I embrace my shadows and lights, my positives and negatives, I become more of myself and more authentic to my truest form. As I accept myself in my polar reality, I accept others as they are, too. My meditation practice, writing music and my plant medicine journey has helped me on my way, that is for sure!

What is your mission in life?

My mission in life is to enjoy and share this mystical and magical journey with other incredibly humans, animals and plants. My mission is to help humanity evolve by being my authentic, real self, in a world built on superficial reality. My mission is to inspire others to be their authentic selves so we can collectively coexist with less pain and suffering.
