This is a really fun and inspiring Q&A with our Director of Operations, Hannah. Get to know more about her and what drives her to make Confident Cannabis the market leader for wholesale cannabis.

“The future of cannabis is female! December is DOPE Magazine’s Women’s Issue, and we wanted to continue to highlight women across the industry on all our platforms. We sent a questionnaire to outstanding women in cannabis — some familiar to us, some new — and will be showcasing their answers in individual blogs this month. Check out our December Mag for more profiles of the badass women you need to know!

How do you feel about the industry-wide assertion that cannabis is a female-friendly space?

Nothing happens unless we make it happen. I do think it’s true that the cannabis space makes a tremendous effort to balance the scales and put feminism in the spotlight. But there is still more work to be done. Keep talking, meeting, applying, sharing, asking and caring.

What advice do you have for other women looking to get into the cannabis space?

I meet so many amazing and creative women all the time. It’s so great being surrounded by kickass farmers, investors, business owners, writers, artists. If you’re interested in the cannabis space, there’s surely a corner for you to carve out. Everything is very new and exciting in the company of passionate legacy leaders.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever received? 

“Be resilient.”

What do you hope for the future of the cannabis industry?

As cannabis steps into the legal landscape, I want to see folks from the prohibition days along with the new wave of businesses work together to make cannabis as fair and accessible as possible. Everyone has something they can learn from each other and we have the opportunity to shape the cannabis industry into something admirable.
