High and Happy #WCW! Here at Clear As Smoke, WCW stands for #WomeninCannabisWednesday. Whatever crush you have is totally for your own hashtag, although these women are certainly ones to adore!
This week I’m featuring the women of the Illinois Women in Cannabis, some of whom I had the pleasure of meeting at the 2nd Annual IWC Summer Social. Perfect weather, patio setting, vendors, employers, and investors all brought together by women seeking to empower both women and men in the cannabis industry! For more information on this great organization, please visit their website:
Along with the individuals I met, the sponsors were among the vendors who were ready and willing to answer questions and exchange contact information. NETWORKING.
That’s right, if you are trying to enter the cannabis industry, it isn’t a piece of cake. But this FREE event was pure sugar. I will be featuring the businesses and individuals I met in posts to come. Some great places to start are websites like Eventbrite, joining cannabis-centered event pages on Facebook and Instagram, and getting involved with local and national organizations who are truly passionate about the legalization, regulation, and education of cannabis.
Like I said, I’m no professional or expert. Yet 😉

Mind BLOWN! You’ll never know who you already know and may meet at cannabis events!
Additionally, I met representatives from Alternative Vibes, Cresco Labs, MedMar Dispensaries, Dispense First cannabis software, and endless members of IWC.
