Ophelia Chong on Stock Pot Images and Women Doing Great Things in Cannabis

Introducing our new ‘Higher Calling’ Q&A series

Ophelia Chong is founder of Stock Pot Images and Asian Americans for Cannabis Education (AACE). She is driven to help shape the new conversation of cannabis and is guided by one mission: to advocate for the legalization of cannabis and psilocybin and offer truthful reflections of the faces and communities that embrace both.

As executive producer for DoubleBlind magazine’s series on mushroom growing, Chong is also continuing her work with the DB community with a class series with Dr. Del Potter.

We spoke with Chong for this inaugural edition of Higher Calling, our new cannabis Q&A series profiling leaders in the cannabis space.
