Women In Cannabis Launch Campaign Against Domestic Abuse

ARIZONA: The Giving Tree Wellness Center, one of Arizona’s leading medical marijuana dispensaries, has announced a partnership with three other women-led Phoenix-based organizations to launch a Confident Woman campaign to raise awareness about domestic violence.

The Giving Tree Wellness Center, Monarch Wellness Center, Kindred and Huxton, have partnered to create a collaborative medical marijuana product to benefit a nonprofit organization. This collaboration is the first time two dispensary organizations and cannabis brands have come together to launch a hybrid product, called Confident Women. The Confident Woman campaign and the proceeds from the Confident Woman product sales will benefit Chrysalis Domestic Abuse Shelter.

The Giving Tree’s pioneering partnership between Huxton and Kindred, two of the highest quality cannabis brands in the U.S., and Monarch Wellness Center, Scottsdale’s premier medical marijuana dispensary, have merged two of their most prominent cannabis strains to create the Confident Women blend. Confident Woman is a blended product of The Giving Tree Wellness Center’s “LA Confidential” and Huxton’s “Wonder Woman,” which are both Indica strains regarded for their quality and remedy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety and restlessness. These two prominent Indica strains have been harvested, blended together, and packaged to be sold in Pre-Rolls.

“I launched The Giving Tree in 2013 with the mission to make a difference in the community,” said Lilach Mazor Power, the co-founder and managing director of The Giving Tree Wellness Center. “Partnering with Monarch Wellness Center, Kindred, Huxton and Chrysalis continues that mission. It is important that women empower and support each other to make a difference, not only in the cannabis industry, but in the world.”

Confident Woman Pre-Rolls will be sold at Monarch Wellness Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, and The Giving Tree Wellness Center’s locations in Mesa and Phoenix, Arizona until January 19th, 2018.

 

Women Leaders in Cannabis finds group to take Thanksgiving donations

OREGON:  A nonprofit trade organization based on philanthropy has reached out to help during the holiday – but had the offer turned down.

The group, “Women Leaders in Cannabis,” says it’s been denied several times.

The Eugene office of the Oregon Department of Human Services and two charities said “no” when the group wanted to donate turkey dinner baskets to clients in need.

But they finally found a group who said “yes”.

KindTree Autism Rocks is a volunteer group that celebrates people in the autism community.

When WLC said they wanted to donate food baskets, Autism Rocks was excited to receive them.

The group says they are not concerned about WLC’S association with cannabis.

“It’s more about, you know, let’s meet a need in this community and it’s an act of generous giving and passing forward,” said Vice President Molly Elliott of Autism Rocks.
