Interview 06 //

Jay : 

It’s a pleasure to announce that today, we have Angelina blessed that she’s joined us for compensation and sports Cannabis.

Angelina : 

Soddy calm – Greetings, my friend. Welcome to the pandemic. pandemic edition. Yes. 

Jay :

How are you? Not too bad. And where are you joining us from today? 

Angelina : 

I’m from the basement  of Parkdale, Ontario, Canada. So I’m, I’m at home, of course, as everyone else.  

Jay :

And as you alluded to, you know, due to the current climate, everyone is at home, and it’s affected everyone in a different way. One thing that we keep up to quite a bit is with your Instagram, and you’re always showing new and creative ways of how to work out and treat at home. How do you do that? And why was that something important for you to show off to a lot of your followers?

Angelina : 

I’ve kind of had to just go into a complete mode of survival. It’s kind of a difficult conversation, because of what I’m going through and what everybody is going through. None of us have been here before. Now I’ve tried 15 years and I put myself through a crazy workout schedule, and you know, mental training and all of that. But truthfully, being in the basement being in my little apartment for the last, like I don’t even know how long we’ve been down here for like, are we going on five or six weeks has been an incredible, tough journey. And I have really good days, and I have really bad days. But the only thing that has felt good for me is the movement. 

So has my training changed? 

Absolutely. I don’t get to spit all over. And then Boris anymore, you know like that’s like my coaches, my there’s my everything besides my partner, but like it’s not having that as in terrible. So my training has kind of changed into a movement based on dancing. I’m singing or running in the middle of the street, getting a kettlebell and just finding ways to strengthen myself. So through all of that, through finding the movement, and finding that little bit of like, no anxiety place has been a real blessing for me.

Jay : 

Yeah, it’s been incredible to watch you on Instagram, I know that there are days where you know, I wake up and I’m feeling a little bit sluggish or lazy. And then I see you posting on your story that you’ve done some incredible workout at home, and it gets me right into the mood. So I really appreciate the motivation on our side.

Angelina : 

Yeah, I’m glad I can inspire people because I’m like, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’m not showing my face a whole lot like I’m getting there. And I’m a baseball cabin and lowdown. And, you know, like, I don’t think any of us are feeling 100% right now. So like I am motivating myself and I am using a lot of cannabis to get through these workouts and find different ways of going through it and just keep on moving. Because I don’t feel like moving everyday. But what I am looking for is a little bit of that calmness inside of it. So I’m having to work on other things that I would always say that I didn’t have the time for, whether it be the mobility or the stretching, or the fucking meditation because that is the hardest part for me. So I’m trying to get through those things. But you know, you’ve been really amazing too, because there’s been some mornings where I’m just kind of like, anxious about it in bed, and you’ll send me a message and be like, go get up today. And I’m like, I got nothing else to do except workout three times a day. So you know what, I’m just gonna do it. It’s been great, because I feel like the support system. There’s always been a little bit of support from someone or me giving it to someone where we’re all just trying to like, be accountable and check for each other. And that’s what’s important.

Jay : 

Yeah, I completely agree. So before we get started, really take a deep dive, you know, to cannabis and a pivotal role that it’s played in your life. You’ve had over 13 years of training and fighting in Canada in Thailand. And you know, you’re also the first female Canadian to fight more Thai in China. Let’s take it back. And, you know, would you mind taking us on that journey of when you first decided to go on Muay Thai boxing.

Angelina : 

I was not an athlete. I was the girl in track and field, who would probably walk the long run or like I was not, I’m not from a family of athletes. I’m not athletically inclined. You know, I was raised-  I love to dance. I love to push energy like, so 15 years ago, I didn’t want to rave anymore. And I didn’t want to do that. That seemed like a complete waste of energy. All you know. So I’m like, Okay, I’m going to go for a run. So I was in Hyde Park, and I went for a run and I listened to my music and I Well, I did that really badly. And then I walked into a gym on Bloor Street and a man named Zhongzhou Chard was teaching there. So I did a couple classes with him now as John Bouchard is the man who brought Muay Thai in North America 30 plus years ago. 

So I trained with him for a little bit and then I went through a big breakup. And, you know, my asset had never been further than Nova Scotia, got on a plane and went to Thailand and pretty much cried the whole way there being like, what the fuck have I done and I got to Chiang Mai and it was the original VM number one. It’s now called what santai in northern China. Am I. And, you know, they dropped me off at the gym. And they’re just like six o’clock, I showed up. And, you know, I was the only female and I was the only foreigner. And I just went and did it and cried, did it again. 

So coming back and forth from Toronto to Thailand, when I was still illegal in Canada, so I, you know, there were demos, but I wasn’t really interested in that. So I would go to Thailand every winter and fight while I was there. So it’s, you know, a lot of years of fighting, a lot of years of not smoking weed, a lot of years of constant injury, and just constant injury over injury and broken bones and concussions and all of that. And I just knew that I needed to kind of change things because I wasn’t going to last as a Muay Thai fighter. And my emotional state was kind of taking a toll as well, because of just the push of the cortisol levels. So I knew that I had to change something. So I would always watch all the champion fighters. It’s him number one, like Simon Marcus, who they all smoked, and I just, like, What the fuck are these guys doing, but they would do it, they would smoke weed, and they would go, you know, they would go for these 10 kilometer runs. And then they would train their faces. Often, I was just like, yeah, there must be something to this. So I started smoking weed, and you’re sleeping through the night, and my appetite was coming back and little things just little shifts. So from that point, I met Jesse and Shawn from Float, Toronto. So the healing process kind of got a little bit deeper at that point. And that’s when, you know, years later, Joe Rogan was starting to gain popularity and talk about sensory deprivation and the healing process of that. And anything that I had read about concussions, and brain injuries and the healing process was about sensory deprivation and the wonderful healing powers of magnesium. So between me starting to make cookies, and kind of starting that process and taking a lot of really heavy doses and postage control. But I found that I wasn’t hurting myself. And I found that my training started to get a little bit better. And my mental health started to get a little bit better and everything started to fall into place.

Jay : 

So when you were doing Muay Thai boxing, right? You were talking about how incredibly taxing and physically draining it was it back then you weren’t using cannabis to really help alleviate, you know, the training and the work that you were dealing with? Could you shed some light on what that training regiment looked like?

Angelina : 

Sure, my games were a disaster. So I would wake up early, I would get to the gym, I would get to see him number one, we would do about a five kilometer run. And then I would hit pads with my trainer, which is about three to five rounds, three to three to five, three minute rounds with a trainer, and then we would clinch and or spar afterwards. So that was the beginning of my day from there. So I’d be done there around like 11 or 12 o’clock, I would go to the salon where I would do hair from 12 until say seven or eight, I would come back to the kitchen, I would bake cookies until 11 or 12 at night and I would get up and or go back to the gym for another session and do it all over again. So I did that for five years.

Jay  : 

And during those five years what were the prescribed treatments during those times, you know, in terms of you know, just to feel relief after a long day of wear and tear before the CBD and cannabis days?

Angelina :

Well, I was just coming home and either eating a little bit of oil, or just a little bit of cookies. So my dosage at the time because I hadn’t been smoking weed at all was so low. So so so so low. So I was eating like, say, an eighth of one of my cookies, right? So it’s just like the medicine was all in there but I had zero tolerance to kind of deal with it. So as time has gone by, you know, I have a bit of a monster dosage tolerance right now your immune system is built up a little bit. Yeah, absolutely. And so that happens. So I you know, my medicine intake is a lot bigger right now but the full process of trying to heal myself has been quite the journey. So it’s Yeah, it’s been really, it’s been really cool that the things have kind of fall into place along the way like having float Toronto be that support for me and then me being able to be the support for them to get other athletes into the into the pods into the tank to talk more about healing. 

You know, the recovery process was never discussed at all in my time even though we were just so hard on our bodies it was constant pounding and constant running kilometers on concrete and constant like head injury etc. So to be able to find some relief and to be able to talk to other athletes about things like add more fat to your diet or try floating or you know, smoke little cannabis.

Jay : 


Let’s talk about Float Valley, because I know for me, you know I started doing it as an active relief for cycling. I couldn’t do the traditional meditation and found getting into a pod really helped settle me down. How did you get into it?

Angelina :

Well for Toronto it is kind of like in its crazy place right at Queen and Gladstone. So it’s been a really great place. So across the street from there was a juice bar called bolts. So after training every day, me and my partner would just sit in front of the bowl juice bar, and we would see Float Toronto getting built. 

So then Jesse and Shawn (co-owners of Toronto Float)  would be coming out with the parks. And so we basically sat in front of Float, and just was like, are you open? Are you ready to go? Are you open yet and ready to go? And we were just waiting for them. So it was just amazing that these boys put everything that they owned into a truck, and drove from DC and just happened to end up across the street from where we always were. So we’ve been the best of friends ever since then. And Jesse has just been such an integral part of my healing and guidance, that it’s just incredible that we fell into each other’s laps, and it all just kind of happened. The same sort of way, you know, Joe Rogan talking about floating Jesse and Shawn packing up everything and coming to Toronto, you know, my cortisol levels, hitting the, you know, hitting the fan before they got here, and it all kind of, we all kind of helped each other. 

Jay : 


Okay, when were you introduced to cannabis, you know, as a healing solution for everything that you’re dealing with?

Angelina : 

I’m gonna say that it probably started for me like six or seven years ago now. And it was just, I had such a stereotype in my head that it was going to slow me down and it was going to make me dumb, and it was going to do all the things and like that whole old school Cheech and Chong mentality. You know, I was purely using it as a recovery tool. So I was going with strains like blueberry or pink and making these amazing cookies that would be really high and like CBD or CBN. And just try to get that rest and recovery. But then, you know, as my tolerance started to change a little bit, and then I was introduced to kind of like some more, like activated type strains, like the lemon Hayes’s, and all of that. And I was just, it was actually Ross who I hung out with in Colonna, really, a couple of years ago. Yeah, we were hanging out in Kelowna. And so I stayed with him and his wife for a week. And we were just, you know, talking weed stuff. And I had, we had a great little summer vacation, but it was him. 

So I would get up every morning, and I would go do my run. And he would go for a bike ride. And he was like, yo, hit the bomb. Yeah. So I hit his bomb, and went for the best run of my fucking life. And I’m just like, oh my god, this is there’s something here because all of a sudden, you know, the first 10 minutes of your run, you’re like, my lungs hurt and shit my legs and like, Oh, fuck, I don’t want to do this.

Jay  : 

Yeah. So I have to ask, you know, were you ever apprehensive because I know a lot of athletes right? In general, their bodies, their temples, like their OCD about virtually everything that goes into it.   When you first started consuming, was it specific to recovery?

Angelina : 

It was all recovery. In the beginning, it was all shut down. And now you know, that has definitely changed. And I dealt with a big breakup a couple years ago. And I just, I just had to call myself so I was smoking some weed in the morning. And then I would go to the gym and I’m like, Oh, shit stone at the gym. Okay, so I’m going to need to move a little bit differently, right, because it was just, I had to medicate for a little while while I went through it. So, you know, I would get to the gym and things changed a little bit and I had to slow my practice down. And that’s when the beauty really came out. You know, we think that martial arts is this you know, or MMA or more Thai or whatever is this brutal sport of but it’s, you know, it’s not to me it’s become this really beautiful dance and shows the grades and movement of being a martial artist and you can’t really find that until you slow it down. So through cannabis and definitely through the pandemic. I’ve fallen in love with shadowboxing and I’ve fallen in love with movement and it saves me like if I didn’t have that movement. I don’t know how people aren’t moving and I’m not judging the people that can’t move through the pandemic because there’s days I’d rather just be on my blanket forts, and I legit have a blanket fort night. But as you know, everyone needs to feel safe, where they feel safe and in movement is where I feel safe, right?

Jay : 

It’s like poetry in motion almost when you slowed it down, right? You were able to see it all very clearly. You know, the other thing that you’re talking about is that you started using cannabis before the workout at some point and then towards after as well. This really relates to dosing, can you talk about how important it is to understand dosing and maybe walk us through why having the consistent experience every time and that it’s imperative to anyone getting that proper experience.

Angelina : 

dosage is different for everybody. dosage affects me in different ways every single day, our body is an incredible temple and it will take the medicine and do what you need with it. Now, the average person who does not touch cannabis will feel when they’re consuming it, like eating it, they will feel between three and five milligrams of THC. That should be an OK dose for somebody to handle. So we did a micro dosing class of yoga in Montreal a few years ago with my friend Jess and and so we dose the edibles at three and a half milligrams. And I’m like this ball shed didn’t feel anything. But you can see these ladies, these ladies weren’t big weed smokers, and they were just slightly elevated. And they loved it. You know, they loved it. So now, the legal dose for Canada is going to be 10 milligrams. So the only amount of edibles we are able to put in one package will be 10 milligrams so for the new user, it’s going to be incredible. They’re going to get one to two doses out of the edibles now. myself being a monster, I’m eating three to 500 a night. Wow. Okay, so that would for somebody who wasn’t experienced would lead to vomiting, paranoia, hallucinations, like could lead to anything. But for me, that’s me. Pretty stoned, but relaxed. You know, I still hold the conversation at that point.

Jay :

Talk to us about dosing at certain times, like when you’re training, right (pre-covid), how does it change compared to when you’re ramping up for a fight?

Angelina :

Pre training dosage is completely different from recovery dosage. So like when I wake up in the morning, before my run, I will still hit a bomb before I go and run. Now, I am still pretty heavily medicated from the night before. So with that Bong. And as soon as I start to run with my, like, my metabolism will kick back in when I start to sweat. THC is stored in your fat cells. So I feel like as I start to run or skip, or whatever the beginning of my workout is I get I get, I feel pretty elevated. So yeah, that I, for somebody that wasn’t comfortable with that. There’s, like I said, there’s a massive difference between the dose that you’re going to take at home, when you’re in your chill environment, maybe by yourself, maybe with somebody you’re really comfortable with, and say in a gym environment. Now, like what you heard about my monster doses, but my morning dose is going to be like, like, if I was getting an edible in the morning, you’d probably be seven milligrams 10 milligrams just because you want something, but you don’t want to get punched in the face. And I feel that the whole walking around dosage is much different than the couch dosage, you know?

Jay :

We’re talking about these edibles, right, and I was wondering if you can touch on how a whole blood extraction you know, different stream uses and different infusion processes really provide different types of medication for these different issues?

Angelina : 

I’m pretty particular. So when I first started doing this, I was doing all whole bud extractions. So I was taking the whole flower and I was breaking it down myself and doing it that way. It’s a very messy, long, extremely smelly process, which I’m really surprised that I didn’t get evicted from my apartment for a bunch of years with the dosage, things have really changed. So a lot more concentrates have come onto the market. So the different concentrations are very different things so you can have a pure distilled THC product, so that is where they go into the weekplan and they kind of separate everything just get the THC so that’s the kind of punching Your face is going to get you high and they’ve also isolated the CBD. So that can be isolated as well. So an isolated CBD and an isolated THC. You really want it all together. That whole full spectrum buzz is really what the body really really really wants. That is the whole medicine. 

Now when you when you separate it all you’re going to get different levels of it, you’re going to miss some of the flavors miss some of the textures so for me when they take the whole plan and they squish it all down and all that goods and the fiber and all of that amazing cannabinoids are in there. That to me is getting all of the magic. Now you can separate it. You know there’s a lot of edible makers, legacy market black market, edible markers right now that are just using THC using a distillate product super effective, but for me, feels more like a punch in the face rather than a hug on the couch. And for me, a hug on the couch is kind of where I want to feel now you know I might need a just a straight distillate candy to go work out but that would be more functional and You know,

There is a massive difference now, like the difference between a full spectrum CBD and an isolate is a massive difference as well. So like, when they isolate CBD, they’re only taking one of the cannabinoids of I believe 122 that there are. So the chances of that single one that they’ve isolated, helping whatever is going on with you is kind of like a chance that you’re taking, it may work, it may not, you’re not gonna feel anything, right. So for me, for me the best fit, like if I could recommend a product for everybody, it would be a full spectrum CBD, I want it to be green, I want it to look like weed. So that CBD will be really high in it. But I want at least one to 3% of THC. And with that one to 3% of THC, you’re going to get a lot more holistic benefits, you’re going to get a lot more of the relaxation and stuff like that. So you kind of start everybody on a base of CBD. I feel everybody I’d like if it was up to me in the world, everybody would be taking CBD. But then from there, depending on what your treatments are, or what you’re trying to what your ailments are, that’s when you start to prescribe the milligrams of THC per person per body weight, and really figure out how to heal them from anything from I don’t know, anxiety to body pain to you know, something to cancer, right. So, you know, we can prescribe and help people with what, what their ailments are?

Jay : 

Yeah, I completely agree with you. So not only have you really started using cannabis to help you find relief, and you said you were introduced to it about six years ago, when you’re looking for your diet plan.

Angelina :

Well,  I have anxiety. So a lot of my diet is based on what I can get in. So what I’ve had to learn over the last few years, through my my head injury, through my exhaustion, through my therapy and learning about who I am, I know that I have to drink all of the water, I have to take all of the healthy fats, I have to really take care of myself. So even on the days that I feel like shit, I still have to drink all of the smoothies and I have to make sure all of the good fats are in there. And I have to make sure I’m bulletproof coffee and if I’m not able to eat. So my diet is usually quite limited in the morning because of my anxiety. So I do my bulletproof coffees, and then I train. So my Bulletproof Coffee is with a grass fed butter and a mix of quadricep mushrooms. So I get on my adaptogens in the morning, and then after my training, I come back and I have as fat of a smoothie as possible. So that peanut butter, avocado, mango, banana, CBD, oil, ginger, all of the Spanish, all of the good things. And then from there, you know, like I will I love, like I had been making a lot of food, obviously during this time and making some rows.  So I’m living on my roasted edge and a bit of meat –  it’s a lot of liquid I guess for the first half of the day, and then you do follow up with like more of a protein

as much protein as I can if I haven’t implemented properly I’ll do protein shakes at night. What I just know is that if the workouts are what makes me feel good right now that I have to make sure that my body is able to fuel those workouts so even if I and that’s kind of been what my what my girls are saying right now is nobody’s really got an appetite so people are either sitting on the couches and smoking all the weed and eating all the chips or nobody’s really eating you know so and that’s kind of unfortunately where where I’m kind of landing right now so yeah, like I had you saw like the dozen donuts dropped off and I ate as many as I possibly could, you know like you’re also training to everyday so sugar bugs me so like I ate them got a massive headache regretted it could feel the sugar in my mouth still two days later. So my body is really clean right now.

Jay : 

I agree with you.  It really helps you fuel that morning, And another thing that is fuel, you know, is something that you will be introducing soon is a line of edible products, known as Blessed Edibles that will be available soon. And it’s ready for every athlete to consume after a long bout of training. You know, I’m beyond excited about these products. Because when I think about edibles, we think about sugary processed items. They are great for recreational users, but completely missed the medical market. And with blessed edibles since sugary edibles weren’t a viable option to fight inflammation in the body and promote recovery. The company crafted two lines of edibles. So before we get into what consumers can expect, you know, from your Instagram, I know you’re a huge FOODY –  we’ve talked about it. And we’re both obsessed with doughnuts, how hands on We’re with the process, and why it was incredibly important for you to take on this mission?

Angelina : 

Any of the edibles that I saw on the market were like, they were fun. They were really fun, and they were sugary, and they were belgic. And they were cereal bars. And they were all the things that made us think about our childhood. And none of the things that I would ever put in my body. So I had to figure out a way for me to stay the way that I had chosen, and still give myself maybe a little bit of a treat at the end of the night. So because I did start with the cookies, the oatmeal, chocolate chip peanut butter cookie, there was nothing healthy about having flaxseed in it, it was maybe the grass fed butter, still had sugar. But that was where we started. Now from there, we ended up hooking up with one of my friends who is an incredible Top Chef. And he helps with the chocolate line. Everything had been my design, I designed it all. But the recipes were the chefs that I brought in.

Now we have you to help with the tasting, making sure that everything is perfect.

I was still up until a year ago, like we haven’t been making any edibles, obviously. But up until a year ago, I was making all the concentrations and all of the formulations for what we were doing. And then I was and then I had some amazing chefs who kind of helped me with the production level when it became too much for me to do now. We haven’t produced anything since legalization, obviously, we are waiting to go legal, but the line will be quite different. And dosages will be quite different. So we are going to start with this line. And then really looking forward to hopefully the market opening up. You know, if you can walk into the lcbo and buy all of the liquor, I want to be able to go in and have the option to buy 100 milligram chocolate bars, that’s what I need. Tell me why these women who are going to want to eat 10 milligrams every single night are gonna have to go or order, you know, like 3010 milligram pieces, all in, you know, times 30 in packaging times 30 and shipping, you know, like, so can we not just give people the option to be able to find items and the gray area and like let’s just make it a market, which is a little bit more susceptible to all different individuals rather than, you know, if I had kids, I would absolutely be talking to them about, you know, the lockbox in the fridge and not to touch it.

Jay : 

Yeah, that’s something that a couple of the other athletes have come on, as well on the show that we spoke to them about, like how do you approach it one thing that they do, especially with their kids, as they put it, like you said, in the forefront they talk about let them know that this is what it is just the same way that they would do with alcohol or anything else. Because that’s really what it should be on the same lines, right?

Angelina : 

So one thing I was left with was different because we stood there and we really tried to educate our clients about what they were doing. People wanted to know people were not familiar with edibles. So we were finally the people that really are here to answer your questions. So we really found that a majority of the people were like women that are my age, and have a lot of questions and don’t want to go home and drink red wine anymore. You know, they want to go home and feel a little closer to the husband, they want to go home and feel a little relaxed without taking up a prescription pill or anything like that.

Jay : 

 And they may be athletes in their own right, whether it’s you know, doing yoga, whether it’s going for a run every day, and like you said they don’t want to have wine at night. So having so many authentic people like yourself to be able to tell that story. But also walking them through that journey is pretty incredible. Because it gives them something that resonates, you know, a little bit beyond just the “Hey, this is what we are right.” – So what I was hoping – is that you can talk a little bit more or give us a hint of what consumers can expect.

Angelina : 

We’re launching with three beautiful skew of three really amazing products. And we’ll be able to give you all the education and how you can use these to train, treat and repeat yourself into the future. So There are some really amazing ways that we’re going to be able to show you how to use these products to help your workout, to help your recovery and to help life.

So why was that important model for you guys to have trained to treat and repeat.

Because that’s what I did every fucking day. Like, it was just this, like, so something had to break, right? training, we’re retreating, we keep going. So you know, you got it, you got to Medicaid in there a little bit. because something has to give, right, you can’t just force your body to do all of those things all the time and expect it to be superhuman, I thought I was superhuman, it broke down. So even when the body, even when I couldn’t train it to do any more than the mind, broke down, because I wasn’t taking care of the body.

Jay :

With these three amazing pillars, you said that you guys are also going to be doing informative sessions to really provide educational experiences as well. Can you talk a little bit more about that?  

Angelina : 

We’re just going to be with the incredible team that we are putting together right now we are just going to make sure that all the education will be in place through the website so that people can ask any of the questions through marketing campaign, just to make sure that we we want to be able to to touch athletes, and be able to know that there is support out for them. And we’ll do that through our Instagram and through our website. And hopefully, if marketing allows that we’ll be able to be inside of the stores to talk to people that are going in and being able to really influence how people are training and how, how many different ways that

cannabis can be used now.

Jay : 

So you know, cannabis consumption is still new in today’s world, right? What are your thoughts of the way that the sporting world is kind of, you know, opening up its doors and arms to now cannabis?

Angelina : 

I think it’s been a long time coming. And you know, as I just kind of I think we’re just waiting for the bigger the bigger organizations to just kind of like, Okay, are we going to just let it go now? Can we stop talking about weed? Can we stop testing for weed now? You know, I’ve been really lucky that in my entire career, I was never drug tested. Not that it would have mattered for the first bunch of it because of, you know, I wasn’t smoking cannabis for like the first eight to 10 years of my career. But you know, things are changing. And it’ll be really exciting when Well, I think they’re no longer testing in the NFL for cannabis. And I believe it’s almost finished in the UFC. So that’s when the exciting things will start to happen. But the stigma is still really really strong. Like I’ve been to Thailand, I was, you know, I’ve been to Thailand 16 times now. But if you can, you can talk to all of the foreigners and train all the foreigner fighters about cannabis. And they’re absolutely willing to hear it. But you know, the Thai trainers are still like, I got a lot of shit from my Thai trainer over my birthday because I was posting about me smoking weed and weed in my hands and all of that. And that to them is it’s still really bad. So I got into trouble. And here it’s totally different where you know, we’re all we all are consuming cannabis after training. So yeah, it’s still a different world over there.

Jay :
Thank you, Angelina for coming on sports cannabis. Today, we had a phenomenal time discussing everything cannabis related with you. Before we let you go we like to ask every one of our guests one last question. And is there a past experience or a book or a piece of technology that has helped shape who you are today?

Angelina : 

I would say receiving my last concussion changed my life trajectory 100%. So as difficult as that was as I ended my career, but it pushed me to this path of helping others to heal the concussion for as difficult as it was and how it changed everything. It put me onto the path of helping others to heal, and I wouldn’t have found that path if that hadn’t happened to me.

Jay :
