Dr. Chandas Macias – CEO, Ilera Holistics

 

Chanda Macias, PhD, is a true cannabis pioneer: having spent years in biomedical research and developing her knowledge of medical marijuana, in 2015 she became the country’s first Black woman medical cannabis operator as CEO of National Holistic™ Healing Center (NHHC), the leading medical marijuana dispensary in Washington DC. In addition, she is also CEO of Ilera Holistic Healthcare, where she helped make history twice in Louisiana with her partnership with Southern University — which became the first HBCU in the country to launch a hemp-based CBD, and then cannabis-based THC products. Dr. Chanda also has a license in West Virginia. She additionally serves as Chairwoman of the Board of Managers and CEO for Women Grow, the global leader in connecting, educating, inspiring, and empowering the next generation of women leaders in the cannabis and hemp industry, and as First Vice Chair of the National Cannabis Roundtable Board, dedicated to promoting common sense federal legislation, tax equity, and financial services reform — not to mention the reigning Queen Zulu Select for Mardi Gras 2020 and 2021. This wife and mother of 4 has two degrees from Howard University (B.S. and PhD) and an MBA from Rutgers University. She sits on numerous boards in the industry.
