a note from
I decided to launch Toastyy because I felt that there was something missing in the health and CBD wellness space. Hemp and Cannabis get a bad rap; it’s as though if you use it, then you’re doing something ‘bad’ and you’re not sexy or cool. But this just isn’t true, and Toastyy is here to prove just that.
I’ve had a close relationship with CBD and cannabis since I was 17 years old. I can’t imagine my life without the cannabis plant and am excited to bring more awareness to high-quality CBD products.
People are constantly asking me how I do it all, from being a retired athlete to working full-time to modeling to still maintaining a social life. I get endless questions about sleep, pain relief, anxiety, stress and how I manage so I decided to create Toastyy, a curated hemp experience.
I’m in hemp because it has truly made a difference in my life. I hope Toastyy brings people relief, but more importantly, the ability to live a happy and confident life feeling like their best selves.
