Last night I attended my second Women Grow Portland chapter event. Both times I have attended the chapter's events my mind has been blown. There are so many talented women in the Portland cannabis industry and beyond that it really warms up my heart just to know that they are out there doing big things. I met a lot of people last night for the first time, and they were so full of excitement. Some were already in the industry, while others were just exploring the idea. There were women of all ages and backgrounds, all at different points in their cannabis pursuits.
Every person that I met that was attending their first event in the cannabis world was very impressed by what they saw at Women Grow. I made sure to explain to them that the Portland Women Grow chapter is the fastest growing chapter in America, and it's part of an organization that is unparalleled in the cannabis world right now. There are a lot of organizations that are all about profit, and/or all about promoting just one or two leaders of the organization. Women Grow promotes all of its members, and empowers them to take the cannabis industry by storm.
I had the pleasure of meeting Kathryn Darby from Lifted last night, which is something I have been hoping to do for quite some time. I also met the CEO of Women Grow Jazmin Hupp. Her speech was one of the best ones I have heard in a long time, and expect an article about it hopefully later today. I met a very nice employee from a Portland dispensary named Panacea. She is so full of compassion for patients and full of enthusiasm for all things cannabis. My conversation with her was truly inspiring. If you are looking for a dispensary, make sure to check out Panacea. I consumed some Strawberry Satori from there the other day that is my favorite flower that I've consumed all year.
There is a wonderful opportunity to attend another one of their events one week from today (get tickets at this link, they will certainly sell out fast, so hurry up!). Below are more details.
