As the marijuana industry grows and becomes legal in more states, more and more business opportunities are cropping up.
For the main businesses like growing, dispensary ownership, CO2 extraction, and great edibles, deal directly with a product and therefore have their distribution channels clearly set up.
Knowing my product should be available in mainstream outlets, I recently attended Magic in Las Vegas, one of the major trade shows in the fashion industry. Although we met some enlightened people there, I felt like Meg Ryan in when Harry Met Sally in that infamous orgasm scene.
Let me explain: Billy tells Meg that no woman has ever faked an orgasm with him and Meg says that most women have faked orgasms and most men say it wasn’t with them. Then she says, “So you do the math.” (She then she goes into the infamous scene of having an orgasm in a crowded deli!)
The point is that we know over 50% of women in the US smoke yet head shops carry very few women’s products and women’s boutiques don’t want to acknowledge that this is for their customers.
So you do the math. Women smoke and are looking for a safe, comfortable place to purchase their marijuana needs. It’s unclear where women will buy the new paraphernalia that is necessary in this every changing landscape.
So what’s a girl to do?
George Bernard Shaw said, “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
I’m going to start by opening up the conversation you all to take your head out of your bums and change your way of thinking. Acknowledge and validate the women in your life who smoke weed. They are your customers, grandmothers, mothers, daughters and co-workers. They are the driving force in the legalization of Marijuana and are the leaders in the Marijuana industry and oh yeah, we like pretty things and shopping!
