Q: Tell us a bit about you and your journey
A: My name is Mariela, I grew up in Mexico City and I was lucky to grow up next to Huerto Roma Verde, a project focused on socio-environmental well-being, culture, ecology and community. Growing up in a space like this gave me, from an early age, the sensitivity to connect with plants and their medicinal uses, it also gave me an understanding of the need to care for the land and the importance of community.
As a midwife and herbalist, I started doing research about the medicinal benefits of cannabis in women’s sexual and reproductive health. So, in 2021 I started Babe Blue, a project focused on education, products for female pleasure, and community building.
