There are few women in the industry that are multifaceted with cannabis as Keira Fae. She not only redefines the stoner girl stereotype with her cannabis culinary skills, but looks elegant and effortless while doing it. With her own line of edibles and infused oils, hosting a cooking show on the Weedmaps Youtube channel and now with Mindstream Studio with her new show "The Cannabis Pot", she is definitely one to watch for in the industry.
How did you get started with modeling?
While I lived in Japan for 6 years, I was scouted the first year and began a modeling career in Tokyo. I taught myself Japanese within the first year—which further progressed my modeling career and allowed me to communicate directly with chefs and bakers to learn more about their techniques and products. I was very interested in learning about Japanese culture and traditional Japanese food.
Tell me about your experience living in Tokyo. How do they perceive cannabis there?
Cannabis is called, “Midori” or “Happa” (Slang: green or leaf) in Japanese. I never smoked in Japan and cannabis was not a topic commonly discussed there. I did go to hookah shops frequently and there, cannabis was a highly-discussed topic. Most of the people I spoke to told me they have smoked cannabis in America/Canada and about the euphoric feeling and medical benefits cannabis gave them, wishing they could have it at all times to help with sleep, chronic pain, and as an alternative to alcohol.
How did you get started in the cannabis industry?
Near the end of 2014, I fell ill. Instead of of taking a list of various medications that made me feel worse, I smoked a joint and noticed an instant improvement in my health! Shortly after, I started an edible company and began a collaboration with Weedmaps, filming step by step how to infuse and cook with cannabis. I was inspired to create an infused oil line, making it easy to micro dose and substitute ingredients without sacrificing taste or texture.
What are some of your favorite strains?
For THC, my top two are:
- Green Crack (13-21% THC-Hybrid): is the perfect strain to smoke during the day. It gives me a boost of energy and keeps a stimulating mental buzz that will last throughout the day.
- Chemdog (15-20% THC-Hybrid): sourced from powerhouse strains like Sour Diesel and OG Kush, Chemdawg is potent and sharp. A great strain to relax and feel a strong heavy-body high. I like to smoke this strain right before bed!
- Canna tonic (2:1 Hybrid, 6-17% CBD, 6% THC): produces a short-lived, mellow high that is well-balanced with the CBD. Cannatonic is my favorite strain for daily use and the best for a wake & bake
Anything exciting coming up?
Yes! I am currently working with a multi media platform called Mindstream Studio producing educational and easy cooking shows. The show’s name is The Cannabis Pot and will be released early 2017!
