In May, we like to recognize moms, who are some of the hardest-working women and without whom, none of us would be here. There are lots of hard-working women in the cannabis industry–from growing, to business operations, to roles as scientists, technicians, entrepreneurs, executives–and they are often working moms. Many have said that cannabis is the first industry without a glass ceiling, allowing women to be elevated, as high as they want to go in their careers.
Not unimportantly, it’s also been said there is no cannabis industry without females, since female plants yield the lovely flower. Growers often lovingly refer to their plants in the feminine and must treat them with care. Some strain names are girl-powered, and some are featured here–queens, widows, even a goddess. Maybe unsurprisingly, several of these cannabis strains are CBD-rich, bred to enhance health and well being. Thanks, Mom!
