Meet the Queen of Cannabis
While you may recognize Kimmy Tan as a talented tattoo artist based in the City of Angels, she’s best known for being an OG YouTuber and pioneer in the cannabis content creation space. Tan began creating videos for YouTube during the height of MySpace, sharing makeup and hair tutorials with her fans. However, over the years Tan’s channel developed a new focus and she became known, not for her colorful locks, but for her cannabis-related content. Despite working on one of the most conservative platforms within today’s social media landscape, Tan creates content that not only shows the fun of cannabis but highlights the medical benefits of the plant.
