Founder of Our Cannabis Culture
Drayah Sallis is the founder of Our Cannabis Culture and has successfully launched the first Women Grow chapter in Texas. Her desire for clear cannabis conversations within her community has led her to address the overwhelming need for regional education, promoting disenfranchised inclusion in the cannabis space and the right of patients to safe access.
Over the years, Ms. Sallis’ social awareness has led her to work with nonprofit agencies to assist in the adaptation process of ex-offenders within society through reentry programs. Her many efforts include advocating for the decriminalization of marijuana and addressing the socio-economic disadvantages of communities of color; with attention placed on the family core, life-skill transitioning and environmental solutions. Our Cannabis Culture aligns the common-thread of social activism, faith-based education and the creation of business model outreach programs in the global legalization of marijuana.
As Founder and Executive Director of UrbanCann Exchange and Cannabis Culinary Concepts, Drayah applies over 15 years experience in real estate development, investor relations and event production, to bridge the gap between cannabis, commerce and community. Through her dedication and long standing relationship with governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations and professional associations, she has extended her skills, expertise and talented team in consulting with entrepreneurs on cannabis business development, licensing assistance, standard operating procedures and in real estate with retail and culinary concepts.
