CRTFD is a lifestyle brand founded in Los Angeles that is centered on the principles of authentic, creative expression, plant medicine and counterculture. What started as an experimental cannabis brand grew into an international endeavor to create products and experiences that challenge the modern standards of retail, branding, and conformism.  From its fashion collections, to the art installations, or the cannabis offerings showcased at its Barcelona storefront, CRTFD prides itself on its ability to create a business model that honors the subcultures that have inspired it while maintaining its commitment to the environment and creating a pathway for other creatives and marginalized voices to be heard.


HVGC was founded by highly decorated United States Special Operations Marines (Raiders) that served post 9-11. Upon retiring from the USMC and returning home after years of service and tours, the founders of HVGC noticed the benefits of cannabis on their quality of life and well-being especially on individuals facing PTS symptoms, chronic pain and opioid addiction. The founders of HVGC identified that they had a compelling story to tell and needed revenue to fund the medical cannabis research. After meeting with several major cannabis companies HVGC entered the recreational market and is now generating funds necessary to move their research forward. HVGC’s vape cartridge line includes Afghanimal, Sour Diesel, Purple Trainwreck, Purple Kush, Super Lemon Haze, and Headband.

October 19, 2021

As a sucker for all things wellness and beauty it would be to no surprise that I would fall into the influence of body sculpting. Spending so much time on Instagram I began to see an increase in influencers speaking about a lymphatic drainage massage, and one in particular: @sculptery

I was already familiar with the benefits of a lymphatic draining, and how it applied to those post op. Being a gentle massage that encourages movement of lymph fluids around the body it helped the system remove toxins from the bodily tissues: aka, fix bloat, boost immunity and aid in weight loss. Additional benefits from the massage were improvement in the skin appearance – perhaps a major reason why people choose this as part of a facial.

Therefore, what was so special about Sculptery and how it applies to ‘sculpting the body’? At first, I figured it was a fad, just having multiple influencers do the usual promo shout to create buzz. But as any junkie needing their fix, you bet I made a quick appointment.

Entering the premise, I was greeted by Sarah the owner and specialist that would be conducting my session. She was perhaps one of the friendliest people I had ever come across. As we began to discuss the process she started with the usual, “are you familiar with wood and ice massages?” I smiled and said I did, feeling confident on what I knew.

That’s when I began to be blown away. She knew her stuff. Having over 10+ years in the business, and being a success story herself, she dived into explaining the treatment.

Our SCULPTERYWood Treatment is an exotic unique technique in which custom wood, metal & jade instruments are developed to contour & shape the body & face. Wood Therapy has been practiced for centuries throughout the world in Oriental & Latin Countries where Therapists used wood for therapeutic purposes.

Our technique is one of a kind. After researching the techniques of maderaterapia, we created SCULPTERYWood where each instrument has a specific use to treat an area of the face or body. SCULPTERYWood increases blood circulation, has a sculpting & toning effect on the skin, while increasing the production of collagen & elastin’s. Our unmitigated treatments will aid in cellulite reduction, enhance a lifted buttock, create a contoured waistline, and will aid in smoothing out unwanted bulges. Best part of these treatments is that they are all natural, non-invasive, with no downtime, and you are sure to see results! “

Handing me a pair of disposable skivvies and stepping out of the room, it was time to get started. She began with specific movements, explaining the reasoning behind each. First on my back, then to my side. I found it odd having a mirror right in front of me, but as she continued her process the results were visible and undeniable. I was in in complete shock at the immediate results, and she laughed stating, “I love hearing when they see it.” I kept the rotation as she did the other side and my stomach.

This wasn’t so bad. Suddenly, she reached into a freezer noting, “ok, this is about to be a love hate relationship.” Confused at first, I looked over to see what she meant, and realized she was holding a product named “snatchsicle” which immediately told me, ‘It’s about to get real cold in here.’ Trying to be brave I was taking the ice on my body like a champ, but eventually began to feel the tingles. Luckily, this was towards the end.

45 minutes later, I was standing in front of the mirror visibly seeing the difference. It was so great, that I immediately asked how soon I would be able to come back. She noted this would be possible every other day but noting that it’s not necessary for everyone as all bodies react and show results differently. As you guessed, I made the follow up and 3 days later got the same procedure done. I felt great after but wasn’t sure on how visible results would be to others, until my girlfriend saw me and said, “damn, you’ve lost a lot of weight!” – as if that was not enough, my once tight pants were loose, my skin was tighter, and I just felt good.

Moral of the story? If you are looking for a jumpstart for any weight loss goals, do not hesitate, and make your appointment TODAY! They are local in Beverly Hills, and you will be thanking us later.

Wondering on the downside of the procedure? Well, you mustpee a lot – and the non-invasive procedure will run you up $250+ per session. But hey, isn’t it time you invested in yourself?

Sculptery Boiler Plate

Did you find yourself out of shape post quarantine? Are you looking to shed the excess baggage? 2021 is the year of change. One way to feel better in your own skin is to get back to your ideal size and shape – no tedious diets, exercise or surgery necessary. How, you ask?

Cue Sarah Elizaz, the self proclaimed Madam Snatched. Sarah owns and runs Sculptery, unmitigated body sculpting here in Los Angeles. It is a safe, needleless approach that is gaining attention from everyday people and celebrities alike!

Sarah became well versed in the art of body sculpting through her own tough journey after gaining 70 pounds. She researched non-invasive beauty treatments that would help with weight loss and came across wood therapy. After one treatment, Sarah was underwhelmed. Convinced there had to be a better method, she started training in several body sculpting methods. NOW, with over fifteen certifications dedicated to her craft from master trainers with medical experience in locations like Colombia, Brazil, Thailand and more, she is proving herself to be an unstoppable force. Sarah’s motto: “You can’t beat the person who refuses to give up.”

Sarah drew inspiration from her parents. Sarah’s late mother worked in the beauty industry and introduced her at a young age to what would later become a passion, allowing her to collect over 18 years of experience in the beauty world. Sarah’s father is a renowned, retired plastic surgeon who helped her further understand the human body and how the skin reacts, fat cells, cellulite, etc. Sarah took this knowledge, alongside her bachelors in international business at San Francisco State University and created what we now know as the Sculptery technique.

Sarah is currently three times certified in radio frequency, cavitation, vacuum therapy, laser liposuction. Some of Sarah’s specifically recommended services include:

  •  Masters of Wood & Ice body Sculpting
  • Needleless Fat Dissolving Injections
  • Self sculpting at home kits
