    149. 1st Time I Bought Legal Weed: Helen Lewis, Marketing Coordinator at Crescent Canna

    This week we hear from Helen Lewis, Crescent Canna’s marketing coordinator about her first time at a dispensary, right when she became legal to purchase at age 21.

    148. One in 10 Women Suffer From Endometriosis - Here's Why Cannabis Helps with Painful Symptoms

    148. One in 10 Women Suffer From Endometriosis - Here's Why Cannabis Helps with Painful Symptoms

    One in 10 women suffer from Endometriosis, yet it takes an average of 10 years for women to receive a diagnosis. Read that again. Endometriosis, a debilitating disease that so many women suffer from — one that can cause infertility, painful periods, GI issues, and countless other symptoms — is among the hardest to diagnose. It can even take undergoing a surgery to discover the source of years-long suffering. That’s why talking about Endometriosis and the unpredictable pain that comes along with it is so important. Thankfully, cannabis has proven to be an incredible tool for women who are struggling with painful Endo symptoms, and in this emotional episode, we hear from women who found that relief.

    Thank you to our guests Jessica Murnane and Kerrigan Behrens.

    147. 90% of Lupus Patients are Women + Finding Relief with Cannabis

    147. 90% of Lupus Patients are Women + Finding Relief with Cannabis

    When Christine De La Rosa was diagnosed with lupus in 2010, her team of nearly a dozen doctors put her on 11 pills a day — five of which were opioids. Christine’s health suffered so deeply on this medley of prescription drugs that even basic tasks like eating became too difficult for her to endure. After five years of debilitating symptoms, Christine found medical cannabis, and for the first time since her diagnosis, she began to feel better. In today’s inspiring episode, Christine shares how swapping prescription drugs for cannabis saved her life, and she encourages others to advocate for themselves on their journey to holistic healing.

    Between 5-8 percent of the population has an autoimmune disease, yet did you know that women make up nearly 80 percent of autoimmune patients? In today’s episode, we hear from Timeka Drew about her experience with Crohn’s disease, an autoimmune condition that causes inflammation in the digestive tract and leads to some life-threatening symptoms. After prescription drugs worsened her condition, Timeka finally found relief with cannabis. Cannabinoids like THC and CBD have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties that can treat the chronic inflammation which is at the root of Crohn’s, and Timeka credits cannabis with saving her life. Tune in to hear Timeka’s remarkable story, plus expert medical advice for treating Crohn's and other autoimmune diseases with cannabis.

    145. 1st Time I Bought Legal Weed: Khadijah Adams, Founder of "Girl, Get That Money"

    145. 1st Time I Bought Legal Weed: Khadijah Adams, Founder of "Girl, Get That Money"

    In today’s episode we hear from Khadijah Adams, Vice President of C.E. Hutton and the President and Founder of "Girl, Get That Money." As a long-time consumer, Khadijah was used to buying weed from her dealer in Sugar Land, Texas—that was until Colorado legalized adult-use cannabis and Khadijah made her way to the mountains. She was shocked to discover the different cannabis strains and their array of use-cases, and she ended up learning more about weed in one dispensary visit than in 38 years of consumption. Give Khadijah’s first time story a listen.

    On today’s episode we hear from Connie Maxim-Sparrow, founder of Sparrow Consulting, a cannabis and boutique consulting firm. Connie’s first legal cannabis purchase was pretty unconventional—read: in the middle of a DEA raid at a cannabis business expo in Detroit, Michigan—yet her recent experiences buying legal weed have been less like a scene out of a movie and more of what you’d expect. Listen in for a roller-coaster of an episode!

Women & Cannabis 101!

Everything a woman needs to know about cannabis from women. Quick, fun, & informative episodes with a summary at the end (my favorite part). They also market & review female owned cannabis companies. I have discovered many “gems!”
Thank you for all that you do April & Ellen! 💗💗

Knowledge is power!

Ellen provides valuable information about the cannabis market. She is demystifying and de stigmatizing a subject and product that can help many women. As we move closer to federal legalization, Ellen, and her guests, are helping women (and men!) be informed consumers.
