Cannabis King BigMike, Founder of Advanced Nutrients, to Marry Bulgarian Supermodel

King of cannabis BigMike Straumietis is engaged to be married to supermodel-turned-entrepreneur Ceci Krasimirova.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — At sunset, November 18, on the Caribbean island of Anguilla, BigMike Straumietis presented Ceci Krasimirova with a flawless diamond ring. Among the rarest and purest on earth, fewer than two percent of all diamonds fall into the flawless category, and such gemstones were typically reserved throughout history for kings and queens alone. Krasimirova’s ring is comprised of three main stones, totalling 6 carats — three stones being a representation of the trinity, which holds power and significance in many cultures and mythologies — as well as other special, secret symbols for the two lovebirds alone.

BigMike and Krasimirova’s relationship began over a decade ago in Bulgaria. Upon being introduced at a mountainside restaurant, BigMike was floored by Krasimirova’s unique beauty and stunning blue eyes. The pair hit it off and began a long, private, romantic courtship. Because Krasimirova did not speak much English and BigMike had yet to begin learning Bulgarian, at first the couple communicated through a translator.

Krasimirova sparked more than just romantic interest in BigMike; she also served as the catalyst for his complete physical and mental transformation. Previously unhealthy in his diet and lifestyle, BigMike now eats clean and adheres to a daily physical regimen, thanks to the encouragement and support of Krasimirova.

Krasimirova began modeling at age 12 in her home country of Bulgaria, reaching the heights of supermodel success during the ’90s. She’s won several awards throughout her career, including the titles of Miss Shopkinia, Top Model of Bulgaria and Top Model of Europe. However, her professional pursuits span more than just fashion and beauty — Krasimirova is also a choreographer who leads a Bulgarian dance team, an entrepreneur in the health and fitness space, and an ardent cannabis grower and advocate.

BigMike has been a cannabis grower and entrepreneur since 1983. He is the founder and CEO of Advanced Nutrients, the world’s No. 1 cannabis-specific cultivation company. BigMike’s latest ventures include Lacturnus Labs — a $20-million cannabis research center located in Los Angeles — and BigMike’s Blends, his namesake line of ultra-premium, outcome-based pre-rolls. His Instagram @BigMike currently has more than 2.5 million followers.

Over the past decade, BigMike and Krasimirova’s courtship has transformed into true and lasting love. The power couple stands poised to propel their many business ventures to new heights, and look forward to potential collaborative endeavors in the future as well.

Gail Thackray, Female Sex Biz Mogul, Plays Men at Their Own Game: Releases Book Detailing Her Life as a Playboy Model

Author and Former Playboy Model Gail Thackray

“Sometimes real life is so absurd, it’s hilariously funny, and you just can’t make this stuff up,” explains Thackray.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gail Thackray shocks the world with her sexy tell-all book, “Running with Wolves, a Woman’s Memoir of Sex, Scandal and Seduction.” The book gives an inside look into all aspects in her life: From her time as a Playboy model, to the Hollywood Casting Couch, to a business mogul running a phone sex biz for the mob, to amassing the largest erotic library in the world valued at over $50 Million Dollars.

In the era of #metoo, Thackray emerges as a strong woman who manages to play the game in a man’s world and use it to her advantage. This is not about a woman as a victim, dishing out the dirt on powerful men in Hollywood and the Sex Industry, it’s actually a light-hearted, often hilarious look at the real inner workings of a male-dominated-industry and how a young girl is able to pull the strings.

The scope of the book covers years of some of the juiciest topics; from behind-the-scenes on the most notorious players in the sex biz, to the creation of porn on the Internet, to being loaded with massive bank scams, to naked celebs and explosive stories that have never before been revealed. The journey finds Thackray in lots of sticky situations, dodging mob hits and the FBI and occasionally falling in love. Think “Wolf of Wall Street” in the sex biz.

“Sometimes real life is so absurd, it’s hilariously funny, and you just can’t make this stuff up,” explains Thackray.

Thackray created a sexy photo library, shooting for magazines such as Penthouse, Club, and High Society in the 80’s and 90’s and changed the industry with her own magazine Barely Legal. Her book gives us an intimate look into the real lives of Guccione, Flynt, Hugh Hefner and the wild parties at the Playboy Mansion. At the launch of the Internet, Thackray owned over a million nude images and was the major supplier of naked pics on the web. After this, Mark Hardie of Forester Research did an evaluation of Thackray’s company at $50 Million dollars.

Thackray reveals her time as a scream queen starlet (aka Gail Harris) and the inner workings of the Hollywood Casting Couch until she finally landed at the respected CAA with Michael Ovitz. She starred in a slew of Roger Corman B movies and Quentin Tarantino’s Personal Favorite “Cell Block Sisters.” Today, Thackray is currently in talks with producers to turn her sexy story into a TV series. The first taker on this was originally Harvey Weinstein, one week before his scandal broke out.

“It’s raw, it’s juicy, it’s hilariously funny,” concludes Thackray, “for the first time, I’m exposing my past.” Thackray wants to empower women and is speaking on “Finding Your Sexiness” at the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles February 22nd. For more expansive details/interview, she can be contacted at her direct email: Gail@GailThackray.com
