“You can be successful and still smoke weed.”
Welcome to the age of the thoughtful, successful stoner. Women are taking the reins in the cannabis industry (even if it may not feel that way all the time). We’re shaping the way we want this female plant medicine to look and feel when others approach the possibility of its use. With funding for research becoming more available, because legalization and decriminalization are becoming more prevalent, we’re learning so much about its benefits for everything from our emotional to our physical ailments.
There’s alot of talk about the endocannabinoid system, along with CBDs. These are the things that interact to give us the most health benefits. THC is the psychoactive compound that gives us the euphoric “high” we associate with “being stoned”, and it does have its own value for our health, but CBDs interacting with the endocannabinoid system, a system found throughout our bodies especially in the gut and the brain, provide profound results for overall health- without that feeling of being stoned.
I’ve been in the industry for about 10 years but with all the new research coming out, I definitely don’t know it all. Below are a few links to woman owned companies who you can continue to learn from and be inspired by.
