The cannabis industry is booming, and women are at the forefront of this exciting movement. In states where cannabis is legal, women are making strides in all aspects of the industry, from cultivation and processing to retail and advocacy. In fact, according to a survey conducted by Marijuana Business Daily, women hold 36% of leadership positions in the cannabis industry, which is higher than the national average in other industries. One area where women are particularly making their mark is in the realm of cannabis wellness. With a focus on holistic healing and self-care, many women are turning to cannabis as a natural alternative to traditional medicine. As a result, women entrepreneurs are launching their own cannabis-based wellness products, such as topicals, tinctures, and edibles. Another area where women are excelling is in cannabis advocacy. Many women are advocating for cannabis legalization as a way to combat the opioid epidemic, provide relief for chronic pain, and address social justice issues related to the war on drugs. Overall, women are making waves in the cannabis industry and changing the conversation around cannabis use. With their creativity, passion, and drive, women are poised to continue pushing the cannabis industry forward and shaping its future.
