House of Puff
NEW YORK, USA // Kristina Lopez Adduci is an entrepreneur, speaker, art collector, and curator. She’s the founder and CEO of House of Puff, a New York-based cannabis brand. The company began with her conception of the cannabis consumption devices she wanted for herself. Since, Kristina has evolved the brand to leverage the power of art as a vehicle for social change.
Kristina’s first company was Art Zealous, a media company she built to make the art collecting journey more accessible for her generation. She served on the Whitney Museum Contemporary Board and the Guggenheim Acquisitions Council. She also helped form the Young Patrons group for the American Folk Art Museum—of which she was a Co-Chair for 4 years. Kristina keeps her toe in the art world as guest curator for Workville, a NYC co-working space for which she has sourced 100+ artworks from emerging artists.
Leveraging her art-world relationships and content marketing expertise, Kristina developed House of Puff’s first MVP in 2020. “The Lit Kit” received organic media attention and customer validation. Today, House of Puff has over 20 SKUs—from pipes to artist collaboration hemp rolling papers. The brand is sold in almost 40 US states, Canada, and Europe.
Kristina is a frequent guest on Cheddar TV and podcasts across cannabis, motherhood, and business. She also hosts At Home with House of Puff, their YouTube channel with almost 1M views. Kristina is deeply committed to operationalizing equity in healthcare and in the cannabis industry. She currently serves as a DEI Ambassador for Trailblazers and is a member of the Minority Cannabis Business Association, the Drug Policy Alliance, and NORML.
Prior to Art Zealous and House of Puff, Kristina fundraised over $25M for The Michael J. Fox Foundation and co-chaired their Young Professionals group.
