WOMEN

THE NEW SMOKER

ELEVATING WEED

W

omen are a powerful force within the cannabis industry. Whether they are Mothers advocating medical cannabis for their children; Doctors working towards changing how healthcare systems view cannabis as a medicine; Lawyers and policy advocates fighting to change cannabis laws; Entrepreneurs and Corporate Business women working on the expansion of the industry. There are so many aspects of this new and exciting industry that women are touching on, from seed to sale and beyond. With women empowerment in the forefront of todays issues many media sites have recently published pieces on a few influential or powerful women within the weed industry. And with the sheer numbers of women moving into the industry there is a huge pool now of women to highlight. Over the last few months I’ve been attending events, mostly in Los Angeles, and getting to know who is doing what within the world of weed. I was excited to discover women throughout the U.S. and beyond, in the most interesting jobs, all committed to establishing cannabis within modern day society. Though I could not highlight all the amazing women I’ve discovered, here is a selection of over 40 exciting women who are elevating the cannabis industry.
