While there has been much discussion on gender equity in cannabis, the disparities still exist. This is especially true for women of color.

Presented by Clarenda "Cee" Stanley, CEO of Green Heffa Farms, Inc.
Cannabis has become an increasing popular remedy, particularly for pain, and particularly amidst the country's opioid epidemic.
