Cannabis feminism: The new movement that has high hopes for the future

Cannabis has been a big part of my life—I am proud to say that I was the biggest cannabis supporter at Harvard Business School. I believe cannabis helped me get accepted to Harvard Business School, and it certainly helped me graduate and figure out what is next. When I finished business school, I looked in the mirror and realized it was finally time to come out of the cannabis closet.

I have been a cannabis user and advocate for almost ten years. It has been my therapy in many ways, keeping me grounded and calm through the highs and lows of my professional and personal experiences. Though 29 states have legalized cannabis either medically or recreationally, there’s still a social stigma holding cannabis back. Why is it so easy for so many women to get a prescription drug for pain or sleeping issues, yet it is still so difficult to explore the medicinal potential of this plant? Why is it that I am still embarrassed to be the only person eating edibles at a party? I realized that my new mission is to educate women about the health benefits of cannabis and create safe spaces for women to try healthy cannabis products for the first time.
