Other than the 18-35 white male stoner, most people's cannabis experience has been invisible, not unlike their own personal narrative.

      Women of Cannabis: Christine De La Rosa aims to make Cannabis accessible to all

      Women of Cannabis: Christine De La Rosa aims to make Cannabis accessible to all

      CEO and founder of The People’s Dispensary – Christine De La Rosa is a mighty force in the industry and is working on making Cannabis more equitable for all. Cannabis has become a luxury, making it easy only for the upper and upper middle class to afford and De La Rosa aims to change that. The People’s Dispensary is the closest thing to an equity franchise model that exists in the cannabis space, aiming to both serve and be owned by communities that surround the dispensary. And it’s growing from its Portland flagship to more markets: Chicago, Fresno, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. De La Rosa’s cause is close to her heart, as cannabis has been a treatment for her own chronic illness. “I honestly do not know what my life would be like today without cannabis.”


      Here’s what De La Rosa has to say about her mission: "The cannabis industry has the potential to be healing to an entire society by offering alternative therapies to everyone. I know from experience that this plant has enhanced my quality of life, but more importantly, it has saved my life. I am grateful to have had the access and ability to switch my entire pharmaceutical regimen to cannabis and create a new life on the other side of illness. I am a businesswoman and understand the need for the bottom line. However, my advice for current and future cannabis entrepreneurs and business owners is to lead with the goal of utilizing cannabis to heal communities at every level and let go of the greed that has embedded itself into the industry. Prioritizing the health and well-being of our communities will lead to the bottom line that you are seeking in a way that is sustainable and accessible. Never lose sight that each of us has the power to create an industry that is just."

      Women of Cannabis: Olivia Wilde chooses CBD over painkillers

      We got familiar with Olivia Wilde through the hit TV Show ‘House’ but after the show ended in 2012, she has gone on to act in Broadway, direct films and write books too. Her directorial debut was appreciated by critics and viewers alike. Wall Street Journal said that "Nothing funnier, smarter, quicker or more joyous has graced the big screen in a long time." As Olivia Wilde continues to explore her passions and grow in her career, she is not exempt from health hazards induced from work. She too undergoes tiredness, pains and aches from long hours on stage and on camera. And for this, she has recently declared that she turns to CBD.

      “Another thing I’m a huge believer in, in terms of body care: I’ve been using this body lotion that has CBD from marijuana that I discovered it through my friends in LA. Recently I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked.  My neck was really tight. The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers.” She told the New York Times.

      And she’s absolutely spot on with this one! Why bother yourself with the harmful side effects of pain killers when you can stick to something that gives you similar results with no side effects? Topicals are amazing for treating pain. They are loved by athletes too and are known for being able to alleviate high levels of pain. Celebrities are also known to use CBD topicals on their feet while walking the red carpet to make the pain more bearable. Not only that, it can also be used pre and post workout to manage pain, soothe the body and reduce inflammation.

      If you face any of the above situations at work or your daily life, consider switching to CBD tinctures or balms to help you manage the pain. For the ladies, this month we’ve got flat 10% off with the code WMN10 so if you want to get started the time is now!

      Woman of Cannabis: Whoopi Goldberg is an inspiring Cannapreneur!

      Whoopi Goldberg has been a warm and familiar face for most of our childhood years. She is primarily known for being an American actor, author, comedian, and television personality. She has recently emerged as an investor and a supporter of the marijuana industry. “I’ve spent the better part of my life standing up for issues that were important to me,” says Whoopi as she elaborated on her aim to help women gain access to the therapeutic effects of Cannabis. When it comes to CBD products, Whoopi, like most of us agrees that this is centered mainly on wellbeing. Like most of us, she emphasizes on the difference between using Cannabis recreationally and using it medicinally. There is a plethora of ways to consume Cannabis so that it does not get you “high” or cause any harm to your lungs and you are still able to reap its therapeutic benefits.

      She concretized her love and belief in Cannabis with Whoopi & Maya - Goldberg’s first line of Cannabis based Epsom salts and menstrual relief rubs. “I asked a friend in the cannabis industry if anyone was doing marijuana for menstrual cramps; and when he said no, I knew someone had to – and that it may as well be us,” Goldberg recalls. She specifically opted to sell products for menstrual relief because she found that weed helped her with cramps much earlier in her life. “There are plenty of products out there that will get you high, but we want to make sure you are feeling OK. We want to help women who have bad cramps be able to work a full work day without excruciating pain.” She says as she describes the purpose of her women-centric line.

      Whoopi is an inspiration not only to women but also entrepreneurs who want to carry forward their passion and belief in Cannabis. It is through bold women like her that the Cannabis industry continues to progress by leaps and bounds, helping many receive the relief they need.
