Educating Consumers And The Public About Cannabis

Educating consumers and the public about cannabis with Jamie Evans, the founder of The Herb Somm. The Herb Somm is a cannabis blog and lifestyle brand that focuses on the gourmet side of the cannabis industry. She is an educator, event host and producer, and writer specializing in cannabis, CBD, food, recipes, wine, and the canna-culinary world. As a well-known CBD and cannabis personality, Jamie is best known for her literary work and signature canna-culinary events. She’s also been contributing to POPSUGAR, MARY Magazine, and The Clever Root magazine specializing in lifestyle features for the modern consumer. In addition, Jamie is the co-editor of GoldLeaf’s acclaimed cannabis Cooking Journal and the author of a new CBD lifestyle book, The Ultimate Guide to CBD: Explore the World of Cannabidiol to be published by Fair Winds Press of Quarto Publishing Group scheduled to release March 2020.

The Herb Somm was created in March 2017 with the goal of educating consumers and the public about cannabis, and healthy ways to incorporate herbal products into everyday life. While there is an emphasis on cannabis pairings and recipes, wellness and CBD education are also a focus for the brand. In March of 2018, The Herb Somm blog was brought to life with Thursday Infused, a gourmet event series that highlights different cannabis chefs across the US. These educational sessions are focused on promoting healthy and safe ways to consume edibles, cannabis, and CBD products. As a part of her mission, Jamie donates a portion of event revenues to local 501(c)(3) nonprofits that provide healthy food to the Bay Area community by creating organic, sustainable, and high-yield urban farms and backyard garden.
