“When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.”  —Bob Marley

I have always been a writer. I have stacks of old notebooks that I’ve kept since I was six years old. There are journals filled with a young girl’s simplistic thoughts, pages drenched in dreams of a teenager, and scribbles in notebooks of a young woman’s secrets. I have always felt safest when I could put my feelings on paper. The other part of my soul is  Mary Jane. Weed elevates my spirit to a level where I can appreciate the wide range of thoughts that flow through my mind. 

I didn’t realize I could pursue writing and/or a cannabis career until I found myself in a college journalism course. I spent my final year at CSU East Bay writing stories about cannabis and local events. The combination of infusing cannabis, community, and writing sparked a light in my soul.


This period of finding my writer's voice led me to my other secret passion of writing poetry.

Cannabis and writing have continued to be a constant in my life. I continue to write about cannabis for blogs, I just self-published my first poetry book, and I proudly work within the cannabis industry, learning everything I can on a daily basis.


I am now unapologetically a cannabis writer.

Thanks for listening,

Rebecca Olmos

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a writer. I’ve filled notebooks with words, blurbs, and poems with my feelings and thoughts about life, love, weed and grief. “Broken Art,” is my first, self-published collection of some of my most favorite poems. Kayla Caivano created beautiful original artwork to match.

“For everyone that bubbles over with emotions and feels like they’re too hard to love, this book is for you. I hope you turn all those feelings into art.”
