With a background as a former Music Industry Publicist, Loely’s transition into the cannabis industry was sparked by her personal experiences and a deep passion for better health.

As a mother of two, Loely understands the importance of informed and responsible cannabis use. She passionately supports new and veteran patients in identifying the best cannabis products tailored to their individual needs. Her commitment to education led her to become an affiliate of the esteemed Oaksterdam University in Oakland, CA, where she earned certifications in Cannabis studies, further solidifying her knowledge.
Loely is an active member of various Cannabis advocacy groups, including the BCB Masterminds Cohort, OC and Los Angeles NORML. Her involvement in these organizations underscores her dedication to fostering positive change within the industry and promoting responsible cannabis consumption for better health.
