First let me say that I apologize to those of you who actually read this blog and you’ve wondering where I’ve ran off to. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to be out a few days. Luckily for me, those “circumstances” didn’t interfere with my ability to read and I was able to do my usual, normal research. Okay there wasn’t anything usual or normal about the piles of books and magazines covering my bed. At one time I think the comforter was blue; I think it still is. Anyway, while in my readings, I came across an article written by a man named Leland Radovanvic. In his article, he gave a list of these top women in the industry that are just, well really badass. Just in case you never get to read his article, here are some of those women.
IVY MIX – Badass Award Winning Bartender & Mixologist
Ivy Mix brings drinks to life and is one of the nation’s most celebrated and award winning bartender’s. Not only has she written her own book about her experiences working and living in Guatemala at the tender age of 19 but she also co-owns Leyenda in Brooklyn and started Flyers THC infused cocktails. She also is the co-founder for Speed Rack, an all-female high-speed bar tending competition. It focuses on women who are up and coming in the industry and raises money for breast cancer. Be on the lookout for this hottie. You can check her out on multiple social media accounts as well as Ivymix.com
KRISTEN JORDAN – Jordan Real Estate
Now I know you’re probably wondering why I put a real estate agent in our Women To Watch list, but Kristen Jordan isn’t only the CEO and founder of Jordan Real Estate. An attorney by trade with experience working in real estate, Kristen merged her worlds together to create a brokerage focused on the cannabis industry. In 2019, Forbes named her one of the “Fifteen Powerful and Innovative Women in Cannabis Right Now.”
DR. ALLISON WALSH – OB/GYN – Women’s Lifestyle Solutions
Dr. Walsh believes in treating women with plant based solutions with conventional medicine. She explains that medical cannabis can be an effective low-side-effect, alternative pain management treatment such as endometriosis, perimenopause and even decreased sexual desire. CB1 and CB2 receptors exist in the visceral organs, such as the reproductive system, which respond to naturally produced cannabinoids as well as those made by the cannabis plant. She says the key is that the medical use of cannabis is relatively safe compared to conventional medicines. The normal treatment for pelvic pain and cramping caused by endometriosis involves medicines with mind-altering effects beyond that of cannabis. Dr. Walsh’s practice is currently in St. Louis, Missouri where medical cannabis is legal.
There are so many more phenomenal women that are on the rise within our growing industry, I wanted to keep writing about them! Each one of these women I wrote about today bring their own something special to the growing industry that is cannabis.
