‘That sticky icky’: Maya Gilliam of Hempress Farms reclaims the cannabis plant


You really can’t tell the difference.

Maya Gilliam weaves in and out of the rows of potted plants with the star-shaped leaves, carefully picking out the yellowing ones as she goes. The afternoon sun beats oppressively down on her, but she doesn’t seem to mind. Occasionally, she runs her fingers on a tower of flowering buds, collecting the pungent sap on her fingertips.

“You gotta smell this one,” she says as she sniffs the plant. “That smells like some sticky icky.”
