As we celebrate Women’s History Month, it’s important to recognize the incredible contributions of women in the cannabis industry. While it’s no secret that the industry has traditionally been male-dominated, women have been breaking barriers and paving the way for others to follow.
One way to learn more about the amazing women in cannabis is by tuning in to “Chronicles of Women in Cannabis,” a video series streaming on CANNECTED TV and produced by 420MEDIA. The series highlights the journeys of women in the industry and sheds light on the challenges they’ve faced, the successes they’ve achieved, and the lessons they’ve learned along the way.
With 50 stories currently streaming and more coming out this month, there’s no shortage of inspiration to be found. For example, there’s Mara Gordon, the Co-Founder of Aunt Zelda’s™, Zelira Therapeutics, and Octopi Wellness™, who specializes in developing data-driven cannabis treatment protocols for seriously ill patients. There’s also Dr. Bridget Williams, an established board-certified family physician and the CEO of Green Harvest Health, who combines her medical background with certifications in life and cannabis coaching to provide valuable “medical motivational talks” on medical cannabis, CBD, life balance, and confidence.
Stacey Theis, the founder of the Canna Sense Campaign and a board member of Freedom Grow, is another incredible woman in cannabis who has been working to educate communities, support patients, and advocate for the freedom of those incarcerated for cannabis offenses. And let’s not forget about Barbara Laronde, a Cannabis Patient Community Activist and Educator, Cannabis Journalist, Cannabis Cultivator, Cannabis Consultant, Cannabis Industry Leader, and Cannabis Business Owner who is planning an exciting event on 4/20 in the US Virgin Islands.
As we celebrate Women’s History Month, let’s take the time to acknowledge and honor the countless women who have made an impact in our society, including those in the cannabis industry. Let’s also continue to support and elevate women by amplifying their voices and stories. So, grab some popcorn, tune in to “Chronicles of Women in Cannabis,” and join the celebration of women’s history and their contributions to the world of cannabis.
If you’re a woman in the industry and want to share your story, submissions have reopened, and more information is available at 420MEDIA.US/herstory. This Women’s History Month, let’s continue to elevate and celebrate the incredible women in cannabis who are making a difference every day.
