Kehlani says she feels a lot healthier and happier now that she’s stopped smoking cannabis.
Kehlani took to TikTok, where she elaborated her decision to stop smoking back in 2018, admitting she “wasn’t the most productive pothead.” She said, “I used to smoke a lot of weed and now I speak on it in a past tense perspective… People think I’m [hating] on weed, I’m not. I loved weed when I was involved with it. It’s a beautiful plant with very nice properties when used correctly. I don’t think I was using it correctly… I think I was overusing it.”
It got to the point where smoking Backwood blunts was taking a toll on her health. “It really really messed with my vocal cords and it really took a lot of energy from my day… I stopped to regulate my body and myself… I got to a point where I couldn’t eat, sleep or be at a social gathering. I couldn’t kick it without smoking weed and I just didn’t want it to have that hold on my life anymore … And also my throat and lungs were tired of me.”
That said, she has no problem with the folks out there who want to smoke. “I’m not judging the weed smokers! Get it, girl.”
