7 Successful Cannabis Entrepreneurs Share Their Best Advice

Did you know women own roughly a quarter of the businesses in the cannabis industry? 

However, a recent survey from Marijuana Business Daily revealed these numbers are on the decline. The number of women holding executive positions in the cannabis industry has significantly fallen over the past two years.

Nevertheless, the number of women leaders in the cannabis industry outnumbers the general US workforce. In fact, only 5.2% of American CEO positions are filled by women. While the number of women executives in cannabis has dropped (from 36% to 27%) women are still making their stake in the United State's fastest growing industry.

Be inspired by 7 successful cannabis entrepreneurs who share their best advice.
