Upcoming Mary Jane Brunch: Rise & Thrive as Women in Cannabis

CanWeeDine is hosting a “morning social” event this Saturday that will include a candid discussion about modern cannabis lifestyles.

“Listen and engage with blissful Queens of Cannabis and wellness experts who bring real talk around celebrating and elevating a plants not pills way of life,” organizers say.

The brunch event will features a panel of speakers, with the theme being “Rise & Thrive as Women in Cannabis.”

“Being a startup, solopreneur and business owner comes with its own challenges. Add on another layer of being in the Cannabis industry and all the new regulations that are coming into play; the days seems longer and harder to be able to shatter that heady glass ceiling,” organizers say. “You are not alone and nowhere does it state you need to be. In recognition of International Women’s Day, we have rounded up some incredible Green Queens running and growing their own businesses. From publication to blogging to advocacy and all around ‘her empire’; they’ll share their candid journey in navigating business, life/work balance and what it takes to rise and thrive everyday as a woman running a Cannabis business and crafting a creative life.”

Speakers will include Gill Polard of The Her(b) Life, Barinder Rasode of Grow Tech Labs, Miz D of Dvibz, and Unity Marguerite.

Activities will include:

  • Canna-fabulous Speakers on a panel discussion Q&A
  • Delicious Bites and Drinks (non-infused)
  • Live Music Dolce Melody Entertainment
  • Tarot Card Reading by Jessie MacPherson Tarot
  • Flower Wall Photo Booth by Blooms and Paper
