It’s a good time to be a woman.
March is the month when we take the time to look back and honor the many achievements of women through history and the vast strides made by women today.
A recent panel discussion in the East Village highlighted eight women in the cannabis space. This included Dr. Monica Taing, a clinical cannabis consultant and the first pharmacist appointed to the Board of Directors of Doctors for Cannabis Regulation (DFCR).
The full lineup of female speakers includes:
- Charlotte Palermino – Nice Paper
- Sarah Remesch – Viride & New Highs CBD
- Shira Adler – Synergy by Shira Adler
- Tanya Osborne – Women Grow
- Dr. Monica Taing – Doctors for Cannabis Regulation
- Brittany Carbone – Tonic Vibes
- Sheri Tarr – 68 Partners
- Kebra Smith-Holden – Cannahealth
Guests were eager to learn the ups and downs of starting a cannabis brand. And the challenges these eight female leaders overcame to reach their business goals.
All the panelists agreed on two important things. First, identifying your target market is vital in starting a business. Second, it’s important in today’s market to understand what is and isn’t backed by science. Being transparent to consumers about CBD is essential.
To close out the night, guests networked over CBD pre-rolls provided by Tonic Vibes. A wonderful way to celebrate female leaders that are shaping the industry.
