Rachel Garland Empowers Entrepreneurs with Women of Cannabiz

Rachel Garland is a cannabis writer and content creator who launched Women of Cannabiz in June 2016 to elevate female cannabis entrepreneurs worldwide. Now, this platform has become one of the leading resources for online cannabis education and inspiration for new entrepreneurs. Women of Cannabiz offers business tips and tools to help women achieve their goals in the cannabis space, because Garland herself took a risk to pursue her dream of writing. Garland is now helping other women do the same by providing them with all the tools she utilized herself to create Women of Cannabiz. In this episode of The Highlight, Garland shares this story of how she created this community of empowering women in the cannabis industry. 

The Highlight is Civilized's  weekly cannabis show that features different personalities, celebrities, influencers, content creators, artists, and filmmakers in the cannabis space. We will introduce a new cannabis influencer every week to share their story, which led them to create content on the web and social media for the cannabis industry.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
