Despite continued hostility from governments around the world, study after study has shown CBD to be an efficient treatment for numerous conditions, especially epilepsy. DJ, model, activist, and filmmaker Chelsea Leyland is tackling all sides of the topic in a new documentary called Separating the Strains, the Kickstarter campaign for which launched earlier this week. (Leyland herself was diagnosed with epilepsy as a teen, though she's been seizure-free for over a year since weaning herself off prescribed meds and only using CBD oil for treatment.) She’s an inspiring advocate for the compound, and her film is worth supporting.
Part cartoon, part poem, and part history lesson, Angie Wang’s essay on trying to find that one perfect dish of her youth—that one delicious meal that just feels like home—is a culinary comment on the idea of home, the inadequacies of nostalgia, and the displacement (and rediscovery) of culture.
The next Instagram phenomenon is the New York launch of Color Factory, the “collaborative interactive exhibit” that had an incredible run in San Francisco. Starting in August, SoHo will be filled with ombré balloons, custom color ice cream scoops, light-up dance floors, and a way to find your “secret color.” The roster of talent involved is phenomenal, including Gossamer favorite Molly Young.
For people who also smoke weed. Sign up for the good stuff.
