Gallery: Celebrate Women of Cannabis
The Celebrate Women of Cannabis conference brought together about 200 people in the Arcata Community Center. Co-presented by UpNorth Distribution and chamber member Humboldt Patient Resource Center, the event brought together an impressive day of speakers, including a panel of Humboldt leaders, medical experts, and regulation researchers with knowledge to share. This women-centric event provided information intended to empower the people who are already most likely to make the medical decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
The first panel of the day featured three women, two of whom are part of the chamber member organizations True Humboldt and International Cannabis Farmers Association. True Humboldt Operations Manager Chrystal Ortiz lead the panel discussion that included Kristin Nevedal of ICFA and Dr. Pepper Hernandez ND.
Fellow chamber member CW Analytical also had representation on the speaker schedule, as Emily Richardson gave an excellent detailed presentation on the testing and laboratory regulations that California is considering.
Women-owned businesses and farms were able to table and reach out to the community through vendor booths, though sales were not allowed on-site of cannabis products. Chamber members Humboldt Patient Resource Center, HoneyBee Buzzed and Mother Earth Engineering were there!
