Her Canna Q&A with Margaret Brodie, Rubicon Organics

I am high energy and live my life in two speeds: stop (aka sleep) and GO. My first thought upon waking is, “I get to go to work today.” I am grateful for the privilege of loving what I do and who I do it with. I am fierce about building and protecting the team that makes Rubicon Organics what it is today. While my title is Chief Financial Officer, my day-to-day is bringing order to chaos, reacting to the speed at which the industry is developing while always focusing on execution and results to make sure we deliver on our business plan.

Her Canna Q&A: Emma Chasen, Eminent Consulting

I founded the company Eminent Consulting with my business partner to guide and influence emerging cannabis entrepreneurs to successfully implement a craft ethos and cutting-edge business model through scientific-based educational initiatives and authentic collaborative relationships. We also offer support to existing cannabis businesses and brands through the creation of educational community outreach campaigns and management consulting. We believe the cannabis industry needs more solid education and better relationship management skills – that informs all of the projects we take on. We also have workshops on the fundamentals of cannabis science, product info, consumption methods, and the art of consultative sales hosted online for industry professionals and lay enthusiasts to engage with.

Her Canna Q&A with Pam Lane, So Hum Royal

My job with So Hum Royal is multifaceted. On the one hand I help on the farm and am half owner of the farm property, 42 acres in rural Humboldt County. Besides that, I do a lot of paperwork for the company to keep the farm compliant and following best practices. We are stewards of the land and have lived on it for over 20 years. We have lived in Honeydew for over 36 years and didn’t move there to get rich, but to make a lifestyle change that suited our family. But moving on, the other main part, and it’s the creative part of my role with SO Hum Royal, is that I make salves, bath bombs, topical body oils, and tinctures.

Her Canna Q&A with Lalita Khosla, Bad Mommy Edibles

I’m an innovator in the cannabis space, promoting the magical combination of

hyperextended, stressed out moms. Is there any other kind, lol.

Her Canna Q&A with Constantina “Mags” Karathanasis, Toast

I am a sales account manager. I spend my days meeting with buyers at dispensaries and delivery services, talking them through our brand’s product line, and setting them up for success with their customer’s unique needs. I love this work because so much of it is rooted in relationships: I genuinely care for the wellbeing and success of the people I work with, and want to help them increase access in their community to the healing potential of the plant.
