A Q&A with an Incense Maker Who Wants You to Relax
Basic bio: Candice is a marketer and a maker. She is CMO at Paper+Ink, a female-led collective that creates smoking accessories for the stylish cannabis consumer; and she is the co-founder of Effin Relax where she sells handmade incense.
Beyond the bio: As I have gotten older, I have less tolerance for things that don’t suit me. Since getting diagnosed with MS and my husband recovering from a TBI, I have learned to focus on what is important in all aspects of my life. The goal is to construct a life that feels authentic and not too stressful.
