Women are the surprising victors in the new and emerging cannabis industry, and are no strangers to charity and giving. Main-stream magazine covers like Newsweek declare the female faction dominating an entire market for the first time in history. Time magazine boldly declared there is no “grass ceiling” for women in the industry, while the Chicago Tribune reports 36% of executive roles in the legal market are now held by women (per data collected by industry rag, Marijuana Business Daily)
Women and apothecary historically go hand-in-hand, so it’s only natural the ladies are stepping up in this nurturing market. Keeping their aprons on and balancing good business practices in high heels, they are ignoring the “good old boys” club altogether while creating their own places of power.
