You recently had an opportunity to speak at the Canna West Event in Los Angeles. What would you say were some of the highlights of the event?

Canna West was great. I’m grateful for the opportunity to talk about Elev8 Cannabis and what social equity in action looks like. I want to show others how social equity is not just a hypothetical. It was interesting to be on a panel with legislators from different states and to hear how passionate they are on crafting cannabis legislation that makes our industry more equitable in their respective states. 

You’re currently one of the elite minorities in the industry. How are you trailblazing the way for more minorities to gain entry into the industry?

We are all about empowering minority entrepreneurs and helping others join the industry. Elev8 has a brand licensing program where we provide qualified social equity applicants with our branding, operational best practices, compliance, marketing, and fundraising knowhow to help them successfully open their own dispensaries. We believe there is power in numbers and in knowledge. Working together will benefit all of us.
