The Ladies Of Cannabis Are Crushing It

The ladies of cannabis are crushing it lately. From Tilray naming a woman-led board to these women and their accomplishments.

Dr. Michele Ross was just named to the board of NanoSphere Health Sciences. She has a doctorate in Neuroscience and is the author of Vitamin Weed: A 4-Step Plan To Prevent and Reverse Endocannabinoid Deficiency. In 2013, she founded IMPACT Network, a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to clinical research, education, and advocacy on cannabis for women’s health.

Dr. Ross has helped patients around the world and she has trained the next generation of cannabis healthcare professionals. She speaks from personal experience as having been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, neuropathy and chronic pelvic pain. Cannabis was the only thing that reduced her symptoms and allowed her to return to work.

Naomi Granger announced this week that her company DOPE CFO now has students in 26 states. Granger is a former “Big 4” accounting professional with over 12 years of experience in both public and industry accounting.

Granger recognized a knowledge gap in the cannabis industry and co-founded DOPE to provide educational tools for accountants and financial professionals to enter the cannabis industry. She coaches CPA’s and other cannabis industry professionals on how to succeed as they deal with laws and regulations that vary from state to state.

Kim Sanchez Rael just launched her line of Azuca CBD edible product in New York last month. Azuca is a fast-acting chef-quality edible food additive that can be used for medical or adult-use consumption. It is a line of cannabis-infused sweeteners and syrups with flavors like almond, ginger, grapefruit, and vanilla. Rael is the CEO of the company and she has teamed with famous NYC chef Ron Silver, the owner of Bubby’s restaurant in Tribeca.

Rael joined the cannabis industry after 20 years of experience in entrepreneurial startups and venture investing experience. Rael has an MBA from Stanford and led the Flywheel investment in MIOX Corp. a water disinfection company whose technology treats water using only salt, water and power to generate a dilute disinfectant on site.
