Adult Film Icon Buck Angel on Joining the Cannabis Industry & Pushing the Boundaries of Masculinity

The trans performer and ganjapreneur joined us for a Sex Week-themed edition of our 4:20 live show, “About That Time.”

Guess what, buds? MERRY JANE has a new show on Facebook Live, broadcasting every Tuesday & Thursday at 4:20pm PT, on the dot. We’ll be bringing you guests from the worlds of cannabis and culture to just kick back, relax, talk life and blow some dro with our editor-in-chief Noah Rubin. We’ll also be taking questions from our lit audience, so get ready to roll your favorite herb and chill with us for an online smokeout.

Our latest episode kept it positive and proud with special guest Buck Angel. While he’s most famously known as “The Man with a Vagina” from his groundbreaking work as a trans adult film star, Mr. Angel is also a motivational speaker, a successful sex toy inventor, and founder of Pride Cannabis, a legal marijuana company focused on the needs of the LGBTQ+ community (and one of our Sex Week sponsors!). While sampling some of the finest strains from THC Design, Buck told us all about his amazing journey, from being an addicted model living on the streets, to his transition into manhood and sobriety, to finding an untapped niche in adult film, and to eventually carrying his message of radical self-acceptance around the world through a variety of products and mediums. He also shared some of the lessons he’s learned along the way, including how sobriety with cannabis can work for some people (“I know what takes me out; cannabis doesn’t”), why the plant is “an important thing for teaching people about themselves,” and his own recipe for self-love (“Smoke weed and masturbate!”).

Time flies when you’re having fun, but there’s a lot more coming down the pipe. Tune in every Tuesday & Thursday at 4:20pm PST to MERRY JANE’s Facebook page to catch all the ganja-fied glory, and follow us on Instagram to find out who’s joining our joint sessions. We’ll see you there!
