QUEEN OF BUD | Founder

An array of Queen of Bud crystals and their matching intentions, showcasing the beauty and metaphysical properties of each crystal for spiritual exploration and intention setting.


OUR VISION was to change lives by heightening connections and elevating everyday experiences. If you change your perspective, you can change anything. 

Ashley's journey with cannabis began with her own struggle with endometriosis, which led her to discover the plant's healing properties. As she delved deeper into the world of cannabis, she began to see its potential for transforming not just physical health, but mental and spiritual wellbeing as well.


We believe the energies that we receive from crystals are comparable to those we get from cannabis, empowering us to embrace our true selves. Our Founder's philosophy is simple yet profound: if you can change your perception, you can change anything. This mindset has driven her success as one of the first authorized cannabis retailers in Canada, as well as her ongoing efforts to advance the industry and promote positive energy throughout it.

With a passion for innovation and a dedication to pushing boundaries, Ashley sold off our retail locations to focus on the Queen of Bud line of cannabis products now sold across the country. The Queen of Bud brand has become a leading voice in the industry, inspiring others to see cannabis in a new light and embrace the power of perception to create positive change.

We're confident, knowledgeable, and progressive in our approach to cannabis. Our mission is to shift perceptions and highlight the multitude of benefits that cannabis can offer. We're trailblazers in this rapidly-evolving industry, and we're proud to lead the way.

Above all, we believe in the power of possibility. We're driven to make a positive impact, one person at a time. Join us on a journey of self-discovery, and let us empower you to unleash your full potential.
