Robyn Griggs Lawrence

Natural health and lifestyle expert Robyn Griggs Lawrence educates people about how to safely prepare and imbibe nutritious, delicious food made from sustainably grown cannabis through books, media, workshops, and catered events. She wrote the bestselling Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook and the just-released Rowman & Littlefield Studies in Food and Gastronomy title Pot in Pans: A History of Eating Cannabis, and she teaches a popular cannabis cooking course for Green Flower Media. She writes about culture and cannabis as editor-at-large for Sensi Media.

Robyn helped introduce mainstream America to sustainable, healthy lifestyles as editor-in-chief of Natural Home magazine for 11 years and introduced Western readers to the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection in her books The Wabi-Sabi House: Finding Beauty in Imperfection and Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi House. She's been featured in major media including the New York Times, Bloomberg, The Washington Post, Bon Appetit, Time, USA Today, Fast Company, The Guardian, CNN, and many others. She’s been a guest on numerous podcasts, including Green Flower Nation, Gunwash, and Sessions (with Cosmic Sister founder Zoe Helene). Robyn and has presented at the National Restaurant Association show, the Women Grow National Summit, Rhode Island School of Design, and many other national and international venues. A seasoned public speaker in the natural lifestyle space, she was awarded a Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance to present “Cannabis as Medicine, Culinary Herb and Superfood,” at Visionary Convergence in Los Angeles in 2015 and a Cosmic Sisters of Cannabis grant to present “Cannabis Has Her Day in the Sun” at the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference at the University of British Columbia-Vancouver in 2016.

Robyn was one of the first recipients of Cosmic Sister's Plant Spirit Grant in 2013 for a return trip to Nihue Rao in the Peruvian Amazon after an earlier series of ceremonies helped her deal with an eating disorder. “I cleared away a lot of noise and trauma, and I wanted to know what was next,” she says. “The next ceremonies helped me find a path forward that was not based on ego and cemented my commitment to liberating and normalizing the cannabis plant.”

After living in Boulder, CO, for 25 years, last year Robyn gave her dream of living as a digital nomad in her Airstream a try. She made it nine months and might try again, now that she’s a little wiser. She’s weighing her options.
