High Times Celebrates The Women Of Weed Honorees

Stormy Simon

 

High Times Magazine hosted a party in Los Angeles, CA this past Friday evening celebrating the 20 Women of Weed Honorees. The party was held at the Boulevard 3 on Sunset Boulevard and looked to be heavily attended. This year marked the second year for this celebration of women who have made significant contributions to the industry.

The evening kicked off with a great speech from Stormy Simon, a previous honoree, followed by a powerful story by Honey Pot Founder Corey Thomas. Thomas told the audience about the challenges and successes of being a long-time cannabis entrepreneur. She also announced that the new rebranding of Honey Pot was finished and the new products would be launched shortly.

Rylie Maedler caused the huge ballroom to come to a hush as she told of her experience using medical marijuana and how it has helped her live a normal life despite having a rare type of debilitating bone tumor disease AGCG and a seizure disorder. A truly inspiring speech from an impressive 13-year old. One that reminded how cannabis can change lives.

Great, music, good food and a beautiful venue made the women in the room feel appreciated and truly special.

This year’s honorees included:

Alison Gordon, CEO of 48North (NRTH)

Amanda Ostrowitz, Founder, CannaRegs

Amanda Reiman, Vice President, Flow Kana

Amy McClintick, Cura
