We had the pleasure of sitting down with Alec, a Keylead from our Glebe shop. Alec brings a wealth of cannabis knowledge to his job and British humour we all know and love. Sit back, light one up and say “Sup!” to your new BFF, Alec. What location do you work at? I work at the Glebe shop.

Pete Florentini is a Peru-born, Madrid-raised, Toronto-based art director. He's a really interesting human who specializes in visual identity and custom typeface design. Pete grew up immersed in 90s counterculture of hardcore punk rock and grafitti writing.

Rashelle Campbell invited Superette over for a virtual hang at her home in the prairies. We chatted with her about being an artist with Indigenous Cree roots, who inspires her day-to-day, and her relationship with weed. We also got the chance to explore all the dreamy details and behind the scenes of where she makes her magic happen.
