This week WeedWeek hosted our second Recharge L.A. event featuring talks by some very smart, plugged-in cannabis insiders.
- Keynote speaker nancy whiteman, CEO and Founder, Wana Brands (“#1 US infused products brand by revenue” according to a November 2018 report by BDS): “Back in the day … it was predominantly a young male market. Now the fastest segments are female and skewing older.”
- nicole elliott, Senior advisor on cannabis in California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Office of Business and Economic Development: “I’m interested in approaching enforcement in a way that doesn’t repeat all the mistakes made during the “War on Drugs.”
- (Our full interview with Elliott will be on an upcoming episode of the WeedWeek podcast.)
- bryce berryessa, Founder, La Vida Verde; Board member. California Cannabis Manufacturers Association:“If you are thinking about getting into this industry now, make sure it is something you love. The road is a lot more tenuous and difficult than it used to be.”
