Annie Nelson and #Willie Reserve at Women Grow Meet Up in Denver

Thursday, February 15th, 2018
by:  Gia Moron

On February 1-2, more than 500 people gathered at the Westin Hotel in Denver for the fourth annual Women Grow Leadership Summit. The theme, “Change-Transition-Evolution,” addressed shifts in the cannabis industry.

Speakers included 12-year-old patient Alexis Bortell, who’s among the plaintiffs in a suit to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act; medical-marijuana pioneer Alice O’Leary; Michelle Dumay, a courageous mother who gave an emotional talk about being an African-American Muslim woman that treats her daughter’s seizures with cannabis; and Annie Nelson, wife of Willie Nelson and proprietor of Annie’s Edibles.

TED-style “Lightning Talks” drew the likes of Hope Wiseman, the youngest African-American dispensary owner (Mary and Main in Capitol Heights, Md.) in the country; Caela Bintner, who discussed the #TimesUp movement and sexual harassment in the workplace; Dasheeda Dawson, who segued from her show-stopping hip-hop dance (a Summit first) to a discourse on facing adversity; Lynnette Shaw, one of California’s first dispensary owners; and Cannabis Cultural Association’s Jake Plowden, Nelson Guerrero and Joe Bondy.

One of the most popular breakout sessions, “Know the Law to Joint Rolling Sessions with Jane West,” had the whole room fashioning joints and spliffs (see photo of Nelson and Lauren Rudick above). Another session offered advice on “Investing and Raising Capital for Your Cannabis Business.”

Women Grow CEO Kristina Garcia announced the following leadership changes: Dr. Chanda Macias is the new chair of the Board of Managers. She’s a former research specialist for Colgate Palmolive Company and current CEO of National Holistic Healing Center in Washington, D.C. Cofounder Jane West stepped down as chair, but will remain on the board. The seven-seat board also includes Garcia and Jazmin Hupp, with three seats open.

In addition, the organization is expanding into several new markets and will soon launch the Women Grow TV channel on in partnership with LOOT Interactive. This spring and fall, we’ll be connecting with colleges and universities across the country for a series of “Women Grow Campus Talks.”

Our goal is to continue to support and build the next generation of cannabis leaders while forming stronger relationships inside and outside of the industry by creating unique strategic partnerships. “The 2018 theme truly tied into the heart of the direction of which we’re taking the company,” Garcia stated, “Women Grow is an important organization for women in cannabis today and we must keep pushing the envelope forward.”

Willie Nelson’s marijuana brand expanding

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

DENVER — Capital raises in the marijuana industry appear to be continuing unabated since the issuance of the Sessions Memo on Jan. 4.

Country music star Willie Nelson’s cannabis company joined the marijuana funding fray Wednesday with the announcement of a $12 million raise for expansion into new markets.

Nelson’s company, GHC Inc., plans to enter the California market with its Willie’s Reserve brand during the spring of 2018, according to GHC spokeswoman Tia Mattson.

GHC already has products available in Colorado, Oregon, Nevada and Washington state.

The company raised the $12 million in a convertible note, Series B funding.

According to Mattson, the round was led by a network of high-net worth individuals, institutional investors and two cannabis-focused venture capital firms, Tuatara Capital and Hypur Ventures.

The $12 million raise brings GHC’s total raise to nearly $30 million, Mattson said. She added that GHC is confident that a new upcoming funding round aimed at hitting $40 million “will go quickly” based on “current investor enthusiasm for the market.”

Aside from funding the California expansion, GHC will use the raise to:

— Expand the company’s edibles line in Washington state.

— Launch an edibles product line in Colorado.

— Add “premium sun-grown cannabis” to its product offerings from “sustainable outdoor grows” in Colorado and Washington state, Mattson said.

Thanks, Michele Carter, for sharing your photo of your Willie’s Reserve Shirt!

Yes, it’s true: The US government holds the patent on marijuana #6630507!  AND they collect some serious tax revenue from state-legal cannabis businesses—including Willie’s Reserve. Yet the DEA continues to fight a senseless war on a plant.

In the last year nearly, 5,000 people raised their hand on the hashtag #6630507 to raise awareness about this hypocrisy. Raise your hand with Willie Nelson and post a picture with the hashtag #6630507 to spread the word.

Willie Nelson, Cannabis Activist

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Willie Nelson is an American icon and an outspoken Cannabis Activist. “Whiskey River take my mind…” Everyone knows Willie Nelson. At some point in time you have heard Willie, saw him in a movie on TV, or maybe you were even caught singing one of his tunes.

Hailing from Texas, a state with a notorious hatred towards marijuana, Nelson continues to speak his mind about Cannabis prohibition. We are starting to overcome the fear-mongering and anti-cannabis activism that the “Reefer Madness” generation livedAt the age of 83, Wille still tours and speaks his mind about the wonders of Cannabis.

I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If he put it here and he wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?

Willie has his own Cannabis line available in Marijuana clinics and Cannabis dispensaries where legal. Willie’s Reserve is a way of life to him. As a Cannabis activist, Willie Nelson has never made any bones about it, he has always operated under a simple philosophy: my stash is your stash.

The biggest killer on the planet is stress and I still think the best medicine is and always has been Cannabis.

The points Wilie makes are succinct. He uses his celebrity platform to educate the mainstream on the benefits of marijuana. “The only way Marijuana can kill someone is if a bail of it falls on their head,” jokes Nelson.

We know what we know about Cannabis and about the benefits of the plant. Science backs up what people have known for years, but the people who are making all the money are making all the rules. Big Pharma wants to keep you drugged, not see you get better. People who get better are no longer in need of what Big Pharma produces.

Thank you Willie. Thank you for speaking out on Cannabis prohibition and helping us move towards a union of Marijuana legalization. You are a hero cannabis activist for us here at InstaTree USA. Best said, since Willie is in his 80’s — if Marijuana was a gateway drug, it had better hurry.
