In 2001, Selena Mooney, a.k.a. Missy Suicide, created the now iconic alternative pin-up online community, SuicideGirls, and ever since she has helped introduce over 3,000 models to the site. For more than a decade, SuicideGirls has fought to revolutionize our societies’ standard of beauty, one tattooed beauty at a time. And, luckily for the cannabis community, many of the models are cannabis enthusiasts and proudly share their passion for getting high on the site. One of these models, Ivory Suicide, has been with the company since 2014 and has had the opportunity to travel around the globe for the brand. Since becoming an official SuicideGirl, Ivory has shot sets in Australia, Italy, and Spain. We spoke to her about cannabis, Suicide Girls, and why they fit so well together.
Herb: Suicide Girls has a line of vape pens. Will you talk to me a little bit about those?
IS: There’s a company that they own called Lowell Smokes. They actually have their own strains: hustle, chill and zero. They’re based out in California.
Herb: Why is the Suicide Girls Community compatible with cannabis?
IS: [Suicide Girls] is an alternative perspective that’s redefining beauty standards. It’s not your typical Playboy magazine. It’s a bit edgier than your girl next door. A lot of the girls on the website show their support for cannabis and a lot of the members do as well. Some of the shoots are even scened that way so it’s a big part of the community.
Herb: What’s your favorite type of cannabis?
IS: I like hybrids. I prefer oils. I like hustle which is the SuicideGirls brand oil. It helps a lot. There’s also CBD products which SG puts out which are great for general ailments when you’re sick, when you have back pain or stomach cramps. I think it’s a lot healthier than most pharmaceuticals.
Herb: Where do you see this all going for you?
IS: I love Suicide Girls. I love the community. I love what SG is and all the stuff it represents. I don’t see myself leaving the company ever.
IS: Never! It’s taken me different places and different countries. It’s like a sorority of alternative females. It’s a good thing to be a part of. You get a lot of support being around people that are similar to you.
