High Times named her one of their 2018 “100 Women in High Places.” Brooklyn Magazine included her on their annual 2016 “30 Under 30 Envy List.” But instead of envy, we're choose to support! So let's learn more about Sophie and her work.
What do you do?
I write passionately, in particular, about sex, cannabis, and subculture.
Cannabis is unjustly prosecuted in a racist war on drugs. It's also one of the greatest medicines of our time and a safe and awesome way to elevate your mind. We need legalization. My writing helps de-stigmatize the plant.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about helping people move past their societally-engrained shame, such as around subjects like sex and cannabis. I created the Intimacy Journal to help people enjoy the most curated stoned sex experience, so they may enjoy the pleasures of both sex and cannabis with nothing but pride.
What does authenticity mean to you?
Authenticity is a fierce loyalty to one's self.
What makes you authentic?
I live in a manner where my outer world matches my inner world and I help others do the same.
What is your mission in life?
My mission in life is to eradicate outdated stereotypes of sex and cannabis in favor of a science and pleasure-based approach, and to live my own personal life free of such shame while achieving success through my own power.
Anything special that you want to share?
Smoke weed everyday.
