A cannabis industry dominated by women? That would be revolutionary, says Women Grow’s Chanda Macias.

Corporate culture is dominating the cannabis space these days, and of the many down-level effects that shift is placing on the industry, none can be felt more than the decline of women. As Marijuana Business Daily reported a few years back, in just two short years, from 2015 to 2017 the number of women in the industry fell from 36 percent to 27 percent.

“I know there’s less than 26 percent of women in the industry right now, and they’re steadily declining,” Chanda Macias, Owner and General Manager of the National Holistic Healing Center Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Washington D.C. and CEO of Women Grow echoed to PotNetwork News.

Macias was fresh off a talk at the Cannabis World Congress and Exposition when she took some time to discuss the current and future position of women, minorities, and people of color in the cannabis industry.
