We believe that Canadians have an obligation to mitigate historical and forthcoming public health and societal risks associated with cannabis laws. It is our collective responsibility to ensure cannabis legalization is appropriately managed in the interest of all Canadians. We created smōgalife to play a role in shaping a responsible cannabis industry. At smōgalife we design to educate about cannabis and encourage responsible consumption behaviours.
We pair cannabis with yoga to reinforce intentional cannabis consumption for purposes of improved health and wellness. Yoga also means to unite; allowing us to draw on yogic philosophy to build community and take collective action in the interest of the common good.
