“I talk to a lot of people who have faced stigma when it comes to dating and finding someone who accepts them for their cannabis consumption,” she said.
“It is really important that whoever you’re with doesn’t judge you for it, and accepts you for how it enhances your life.” Back home in Chicago, Peckler worked in finance for a while.
Armed with a degree in psychology, a talent for connecting with people and powerful inspiration from her parents’ 50-year marriage, Peckler switched gears and joined a large matchmaking agency in the Windy City.
She spent the next few years helping high-end clients find love.
So last year, she and her husband relocated to Venice Beach, which now serves as home base for her growing cannabis coaching business.
Peckler holds face-to-face coaching sessions with locals and Skype sessions with singles around the world, offering advice on how to stop counterproductive dating habits and forge new connections. But many more are entrepreneurs, technology experts or other professionals who want dating advice but also happen to enjoy marijuana as their intoxicant of choice.
With a flood of new AMD and Intel processors and the effort Nvidia has put into making laptop GPU’s more competitive with their desktop counterparts, there is certainly no shortage of hardware if Apple really wanted to bring out a striking new Mac Mini model.
As a longtime marijuana enthusiast herself, Peckler, 32, is an advocate of both the plant’s ability to act as medicine and to help people bond in a warm, friendly environment.
She offers dating, career and life coaching services aimed at high-earning cannabis consumers through her Los Angeles company, Highly Devoted Coaching.
But it can be a deal breaker if one partner loves marijuana while the other hates it.
Or if the consumer’s fear of being discovered means they aren’t honest with their partner or themselves.
