Can you please tell myself & the reader’s about yourself?
Yes, my name is Claudia F. Almanza, I am a proud Latina raised in San Diego, East Dago to be exact. Proud mother of a sixteen year old boy whom I’ve raised on my own with my family. Being a parent changed my life and in many ways lead to where I am now with cannabis.
Growing up & still to this day who inspires you? How did they impact your life?
Growing up I was inspired by music, old school hip hop, like Eric B. and Rakim, Boogie Down Productions, and Gangstarr, to name a few. Music has always inspired me and the culture I grew up in, which was hood-rich. Music and the hip hop genre influenced me and impacted my life because that’s all I had which was motivating and good. My home life wasn’t Disneyland nor was my father around, but music and hanging out on the block was. Break dancing and local kids rapping on the corner or at local parks was a daily routine but so were drugs and gangs. My first romantic song I identified with was L.L. Cool J’s “I Need Love”, man I thought the song was life! My mother is the most inspiring person because she raised us through her struggles and never complained about it. A strong determined Latina whom always treated people with respect and loved to say: “it’s not where you live, it’s how you live”. I have memories of my mom making bean and cheese burritos, all homemade, from government rations she received. She would make there simple burritos and shared them with all the kids in my neighborhood, even some of the dope dealers. So definitely influenced by my mom and hip hop.
What influenced you to get into the cannabis field?
Breaking into Cannabis was out of necessity due to my physical health. Also, when I lost my little brother in 2015 I wanted to do something in his honor and he was a cannabis user and believed in all its medicinal properties. So I knew cannabis is where I needed to be. I developed some topical products for my personal use because dispensary products were mediocre and very expensive to use everyday. I stared with oils and graduated to creams and sports products.
Can you tell about your brand & it’s unique name Mandor’s Magic?
Yes, the name “Mandor” was my brother’s screen name on various gaming sites and Instagram. He referred to himself as Mandor. The “Magic” came from me which is connected to the magical healing properties of cannabis. My brand is me, my brother, my family, my culture, and represents natural healing.
What are some of the products you make & produce? What are their usages & intent?
Some of my products include cannabis infused oils and cannabis creams. The intent is to heal naturally, for example, the oil is used for severe pain and the cream can be used for everyday aches and pains, such as, arthritis, muscle soreness, or even headaches. My oil can be consumed because it is made with olive and coconut oils. Some of my family members currently use my cream for eczema and others use it to treat diabetes. Myself, I used my cream everyday for my knees which are plagued by pain due to meniscus tears.
What upcoming events & products can we expect to see from you?
Currently, I am working on licensing with my local government agency and plan to work with dispensaries on wholesale orders. I also attend various events around San Diego and recently attended the Coachella Valley Cannabis Convention where I passed out over 100 samples of my cream.
Product development leads me to sports related items, such as, the sport stick I created. I call it fire and it’s still under development and testing. I am also working on cannabis sports tapes for turf burn. Which is something I made for my son to help him during football season. The tape minimized his turf burn and healed him quickly.
What great advice or words of can you lend to us millennials?
Millennials, I love y’all! You guys/gals offer fresh perspective on just about anything y’all are passionate about. I embrace your generation because you all believe in cannabis and in general the right to be who we want to be. The advice I would give is the same I tell my son, the more you know the less others will make choices for you. Read and question everything, have open dialogue with what you do not know about. Continue embracing difference and teach each other about each other. Never let anyone tell you that cannabis is bad and that your opinion isn’t valid.
