Real Stories: Christina of Lifted Gypsies

By OovTeam | February 7, 2019

Have you ever sat and wondered about your existence? Why you’re here? What your purpose is? I used to ask myself these questions all the time, but they only left me in a deep, dark hole of depression. Growing up I had plenty of friends, but was the type of […]

Real Stories: Jessica Olson

By OovTeam | January 15, 2019

Standing in the bathroom of my work office, I stare at my reflection urging myself to just hurry up and get it done. “But what if someone walks in?” My hands scurry in my handbag, searching for the little esky that contains my $1,300 syringe. I wait a few more […]

Real Stories: Candice Paschal

By OovTeam | January 5, 2019

Walking between glowing greenhouses on cold, dark days takes me back to a specific memory as a child. I was 4-years-old and it was still dark early in the morning when my mom and I had to catch the city bus. I can still feel the cold air hitting my […]

Real Story: Lainie Ruth

By ozzie@oov.life | July 5, 2020

My experience with cannabis has been incredibly life changing, although tangled in a fog of stigma and controversy.

By ozzie@oov.life | May 6, 2020

I had the pleasure of meeting Windy Borman at the Mill Valley Film Festival during the screening of her documentary Mary Janes: The Women of Weed. At the time, I had no idea what the film was about, but can distinctly remember the hairs on my entire body standing up […]
