Brenda and Tracey were drawn to the industry after transformative experiences with medical cannabis. Tracey is a cancer survivor herself and Brenda lost her father to complications from esophageal cancer. Tracey did not have access to the medicinal benefits of cannabis for cancer treatment until chemotherapy left her desperately seeking relief. CBD hemp oil immediately alleviated many of the treatment’s painful side-effects. Now cancer-free, she continues to use CBD hemp oil therapy every day. (Fortunately, CBD hemp oil is legal in all 50 states). Simultaneously, Brenda was beginning her research on THC and medical marijuana and how it could help her father in Rhode Island, which had an MMJ program. Becoming both educator and advocate for her dad as well as his doctors, she walked both her parents through the patient/caregiver process.
We’re back with our monthly installment of favorite social media posts from the Women Grow community in August. This month we saw a lot of action at the Signature Networking Events taking place across the country, but our chapter chairs, members, and followers showing up and speaking at many different cannabis events across the country. It is truly inspiring to see the how many of you are growing your businesses, pursuing your passions, and ending the stigma around consumption and use of cannabis.
Barely a year ago we started with one chapter in Denver and have now launched Women Grow in 33 cities in the US & Canada. We have been called the fastest-growing organization in cannabis and couldn’t be prouder of our brilliant chapter leaders across the country. Here’s some highlights of our first year:
