I’m Joann Socrates, originally from New Jersey and relocated to Venice, CA 20 years ago to pursue an acting career but after my sister was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013 my life took a turn toward fitness and wellness. I researched everything and anything I could to help her and I found that CBD was proven to help with seizures, inflammation and stress but at that time there weren't too many products on the market nor was it legal in New Jersey where she lived. Unfortunately she passed away in 2015 and since then I have made it my mission to help people be better versions of themselves for themselves. Our bodies and minds are so precious and temporary, I believe stress and a negative mindset creates dis-ease. I also believe that Papa & Barkley shares this same ideology in truly wanting to improve people's lives which is why I am so honored to be a Papa's Champ! We must take care of ourselves the best way that we know how so if I can educate or inspire one person to live a healthier lifestyle, to think differently and take a more natural approach to their health and wellness, then it's all worth it.
