Crystal Silins is a mom, Military wife, Military Veteran, breast cancer survivor, and holistic health advocate specializing in the cannabis industry. Following 8 years of proud Naval service, she went on to Government contract work in the Cyber Security Industry holding a top secret security clearance for 10+ years, before falling in love with entrepreneurship. She truly has a passion for helping others, with an ability to connect to people which has driven her into motivational speaking to help women in business boost their confidence to beat stigmas all around!
In 2013, as a 29 year old newlywed trying to start a family, Crystal miscarried and was diagnosed with Stage 2 invasive ductal carcinoma breast cancer in the same year. Going into fight or flight mode, she knew she didn’t have time to wallow in the setbacks.
She knew early on that attitude would go a long way to carry her through almost 2 years of treatments and surgeries, while also accepting the fact that naturally conceiving a child would probably not be possible, which ultimately led her and her husband to adopt their baby girl.
After years of finding her new normal following all the cancer and mental health treatments, she found herself on a scary mix of prescription medication cocktails, which seemed to hinder her health more than help it. She turned to cannabis as a last resort, ultimately leading her to a healing and self discovery journey that she never saw coming.
She is on a mission to educate others on the power of plant health, mindset clarity, and power of influence and compassion during the toughest times, long-term stigmas, and negative opinions. She encourages you to find your “highest” self, and that doesn’t mean “getting high.”

Well…that depends… What type of drug test is it? If it’s for controlled substances or marijuana, yes, you will pass a drug test if you’re only using hemp-derived CBD, even if it’s a false positive, meaning a threshold test is performed. So then you may ask, what’s a threshold test? Allow me to explain… (and ... Read more
