Rev. Addison truly embodies what she does as the founder and Managing Director of Kelly’s Green Lounge (KGL Network), a cannabis-friendly establishment quickly gaining notoriety within the cannabis community, and within its local community of Orono, ON.

She brings a wealth of experience as an educator, counselor, and builder of the community to her work in founding KGL. She is a Certified Reiki Master Practitioner and is studying plant medicines and other healing modes to add to her skill set. She has been practicing reiki on cannabis plants, saying “Goddess Bless” as she prays over them for a fruitful harvest. Motivated by the spiritual aspects of the plant, Rev. Addison was ordained as a Minister in 2020 and holds “The Cannabis Church of KGL” as a celebration of unity, community, and respect for the cannabis plant and her divine properties. The Church is in the process of being recognized with Vital Statistics Canada, making “Cannabis” a spiritual designation in the country.

Rev. Addison has been recognized in several media publications on the international stage for her role in advancing cannabis and advocacy for the eventual inclusion of cannabis lounges under The Cannabis Act.

She has appeared on media across Canada, The United States, The UK, and also on the Australian T.V. show “Obsessed With”. On Monday morning’s she is one half of the show “The Reefer Report” on Paceradio.net. Rev. Addison is also Vice President (and Advocacy team lead) of the People’s Alliance of Cannabis in Canada.
