Tikun Olam full interview w/ Nikki Lawley / Nikki and The Plant
Invisible illness and invisible disabilities are real. Bringing awareness that eliminates stigma by sharing personal stories of how cannabis is used as a treatment for a multitude of things including TBI, is my passion in the cannabis industry.
I’m Nikki Lawley, Cannabis Advocate and Educator, and I spread hope through awareness.
Traumatic brain injury stole my joy, but cannabis returned it. Nikki and The Plant promotes these principles:
🌿Invisible illnesses are REAL and need awareness 🔊
🪴People can feel VISIBLE. We are not disabled, but DIFFERENTLY ABLED 👀

🪴Cannabis as medicine and the medical cannabis stigma 🚫
🌿Mental Health awareness and discussions 🧠
🪴Empowerment for all; fight for what is right ✊

🪴Recommendation of products, companies, and organizations I support 💋
👩🏼🏫 About Nikki 👩🏼🏫
I had suffered two traumatic brain injuries during my younger years, but it was the third TBI that suddenly changed everything. While trying to help administer a routine vaccine to a young boy, I was thrown against the wall, suffering a significant TBI and cervical instability in the process. My TBI has caused cognitive deficiencies, confusion, memory loss, anxiety, and pain. I found myself unable to work, unable to interact with others, and in a very dark place. None of the numerous traditional medications I’ve tried helped, and in fact, their ghastly side effects left me even worse off. Figuring I had nothing more to lose, I turned to cannabis. My life was saved. My experiences with cannabis have filled me with a passion to learn more about the science behind the plant, to advocate for patients everywhere, and to expose others to the wonders of cannabis.
I am a member of multiple online support groups for individuals that have suffered head injuries, I serve as an active voice in the cannabis communities, and hopes to use my story to inspire others to never give up.
