She is an alumnus of Virginia Union University, and her area of expertise include Biology and Computer Science. She is also Certified in Cannabis Horticulture.
She first discovered CBD after a car accident. While using CBD, she noticed that it helped relieve pain from the injuries of the accident.
Hemp CBD helped with her healing journey after she used it to work out every day. Jessica has since evolved into a Cannabis educator and Pilates instructor focusing on helping people heal the mind, body, and spirit.
CBD has helped her become a better teacher by decreasing her pain and stress levels. She looks forward to teaching and educating the masses on the healing benefits of Cannabis.
Nashaye “Shaye” Bowser, Head Chef/Product Developer
Nashaye “Shaye” Bowser, our infusion expert, graduated high school with a chef certification from high school. While she specializes in baking, it’s nothing in the kitchen she can’t infuse.
In April 2018, Shaye was involved in a car accident that left her in the hospital for about two weeks with every bone broken in her right foot, fractured her ankle, bruised lungs, and a fractured right eye socket.
With a heavy dislike for pain meds, Shaye was introduced to CBD gummies, which she realized not only helped with the pain but also sleeping.
Seeing how CBD helped her with pain, healing, sleeping, and anxiety, Shaye started infusing several things in the kitchen, testing different methods and recipes.
Started Sweet Nothings by Shaye in 2016. Attitude Adjustments RVA was born in 2019.
She was a special vendor at Pharrell Williams' "Something in the Water" event!!
She is looking forward to helping others create fun and exciting ways to enjoy CBD in the kitchen.
