We celebrate the female entrepreneurs who are changing the game in 2020
Women have not held back from taking their rightful place at the top of the cannabis industry.
According to one study, close to 37 percent of senior-level jobs in cannabis are held by women. This puts the national average for other industries in the country-21 percent-to shame.
The women on the list range from healers to extraction scientists; PhDs to PR specialists; influencers to icons; law experts to investment gurus. There is not one facet of the industry that these accomplished women do not work in. While there are well beyond 35 women in the industry worthy of praise-veritably hundreds-we chose this distilled group of women because they represent both the CEOs and the unsung heroes. Many operate with massive influence behind-the-scenes, while others are becoming industry household names.
Here are 35 of the most influential women in cannabis today. There is just so much power on this list.
