Nice Times with Sabrina Diaz ✨
To step into Grassroots Juicery is to walk into the moodboard of your dreams. Half juice bar, half concept store, Grassroots is where you go when you need to chill TF out, get some good food, and buy your friend (or yourself) a thoughtful gift. Launching Grassroots over five years ago, founder Sabrina Diaz is the mastermind behind Brooklyn’s favorite juice bar and New York's first CBD latte (a golden, turmeric one at that). Having collaborated with Nice Paper on some of our favorite drinks (more on that later this week), we sat down with Diaz and her dog, Nas, to find out what she does and smokes to feel nice.
Tell us about yourself:
Latina :) I’m a pretty quiet/shy person and it takes me a bit to warm up so if you’ve just meet me you may think that I'm a cold bitch but I'm really not. I’m very caring, and super loyal. I love making people happy.
What are you proud about right now?
Grass Roots Juicery
What was your first experience with weed?
8th grade making a bowl out of a coke can with my friend Claudia and hot boxing my entire bathroom. We were laughing so hard and experiencing being SO high for the first time. My mom came in because we were making too much noise— I turned white as a ghost because I thought she knew. She just yelled at us in Spanish to be quiet and shut the door.
What do you like using? Any favorite brands?
Sativa and hybrids, but sativa dominant always. I like using pens during the day because they’re so easy. At home I like joints— I stock up on pre-rolls whenever I'm in LA. I got these hybrid pre-rolls by THC Design.. the is strain “Lemon Larry” and that’s what I’ve been smoking recently. SO GOOD. Also obsessed with these even ratio CBD/THC mints from Breeze.. “Relax and Reboot.” Tangie is another favorite strain for me- very nice to smoke throughout the day (thank you Marta!).
What does "wellness" mean to you?
Being happy with yourself. Embracing the fuck out of who you are and owning it in every aspect of your life.
Favorite nighttime ritual?
Scrolling through Etsy, eBay, Poshmark, etc until my eyes close.
What skincare products do you swear by?
Skin Food from Weleda. Bio Kiss lip balm from Biologique Recherche. Joanna Vargas Vitamin C serum. The Ordinary AHA/BHA Peeling Solution.
What do you wish people understood about weed?
There is a strain for everyone. It’s not all about getting so high and eating five bags of Doritos and a bunch of Dunkaroos. There’s weed out there that can help your ailments and help you be the best version of yourself.
What do you admire most in your friends?
Their determination in everything they do.
Doritos. Not 5 bags tho. I can’t decide if it’s cool ranch or nacho cheese!!!! Also, canned black olives, weird I know but so satisfying.
If you're not feeling nice, what do you do?
Call my mom. Take a walk or get super cozy in bed, order food and binge watch movies.
What's the advice you want to listen to more?
Stop over thinking. WHO CARES!!!!!!!!
Dream presidential candidate in 2020?
Oyy. Howard Stern
