Where the Cannabosses at?! Women in cannabiz are on the rise and we are here for it! Do you know their names and stories?! Well, I’ve been tuning in and it’s a big deal for the growing cannabis industry. High fashion met the world of cannabis, when Korto Momolu, teamed up with Women Grow, the largest network of women in the cannabis and hemp industry.
Dr. Chanda Macias is the CEO for Women Grow, she is also the CEO and owner of National Holistic, a cannabis and hemp healthcare enterprise. National Holistic Healing Center is the leading medical dispensary in Washington DC. She is a mother of 4, and recently during a Women Grow event, she spoke about her children and the doubts and fears of entering the industry with children and stigmas, along with the beginning of her journey, and the trials and tribulations that she experienced. Words from her son at an age, where he was too young to really understand the implications , he said “mom you have to do what God sent you here to do”. She shared how the lack of women in the industry and the continued seen and unseen barriers are, the reason we need to support each other to ensure our voices and representation are shown. She requested that everyone look around the room and say to each other you are my sister and, I want the best for you. The crowd happily obliged. The core of her speech, was about building teams and sisterhoods, so that we can build an industry lead by women, to help shape a safe, fair and strong culture of our environment. Dr. Chanda Macias, spoke passionately as she ended her speech with prayers to each person to do phenomenal things in the journey of their life, and this is not the last we will see of her, she expressed gratitude for everyone believing in themselves and in their journey. We know this is not the last we will see of Dr. Chanda, she is goals! Women Grow is goals! Women in Cannabis is goals!
