Shasta Nelson, a NorCal native, has spent her life in and around the cannabis industry. Exposed to cannabis as medicine at a young age, she fell in love. Her interest and enthusiasm led her to participate in numerous branches of the cannabis industry; from managing a delivery service to growing and trimming, and finally into the field of cannabis journalism which combined her two greatest passions in life: writing and blazing. In addition to contributing to DOPE, she also writes and proofreads for Terpenes and Testing Magazine, a scientific publication, and hopes to launch her own cannabis culture website within the year.
