A Female Plant – A Female Conversation: Kimberly Dillon

As a part of our upcoming Diversity Education Discussions with MARY Mag, we’re going to be highlighting some words from our speakers to keep you satiated until January 18th.

Kimberly Dillon of Frigg

What led you to launch your brand?

KD: Cannabis is really responsible for a lot of my self-healing and I wanted to make a brand that appealed to a diverse group of women who wanted to tap into their plant intuition in a way that was rooted in science, but that was luxe and special.

Why is diversity and inclusion across the cannabis industry important to you?

KD: The legalization of cannabis is the greatest Social Justice Movement of our time. One for wealth creation, for the opportunity to heal ourselves naturally as a people, and as a vehicle to strengthen our voting block by reinstating the voting rights to people disenfranchised by the war on drugs. 

How is cannabis connected to your life?

KD: I use it primarily for sleep and to motivate me to do yoga.

What would you say most motivates you to do what you do?

KD: That I have been given a gift to pursue absolutely everything that I want and for the most part I have done and achieved everything that I have ever wanted. A gift that even my most recent ancestors wouldn’t even begin to fathom.

With this discussion being on MLK Day 2021, discuss the importance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s impact in your life OR share your favorite MLK quote.

KD: ‘I often wonder whether or not education is fulfilling its purpose. A great majority of the so-called educated people do not think logically and scientifically. Even the press, the classroom, the platform, and the pulpit in many instances do not give us objective and unbiased truths. To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education. Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from fiction.’ – Coretta Scott King, The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr.
