Learn How To Fund Your Business In The Cannabis Economy!

The opinions of entrepreneurs’ contributors are their own.

States that have legalized cannabis as a recreational drug have promised to put in place social justice programs to help those hardest hit by the drug war.

So how can we support this movement? Let’s look at some examples.

Donate to a good cause

Amber Senter is the founder of Supernova Women in Oakland. Recently, she and a group of eight financiers received a grant from the city to buy a building, equipment, and secure workforce planning. Amber has a social justice incubator called EquityWorks! that will host multiple manufacturers and train individuals to gain access to cannabis jobs.

Their programs have trained many on how to use the METRC system and how to be successful in manufacturing roles. Coming from their paid staff tutorial, attendees will know how to create and transfer packages, infuse pre-rolls, and have a basic understanding of cannabis manufacturing.

You can support women of color in the industry by donating to Supernova Women. This is one of the best ways to drive social justice initiatives and promote diversity for the industry near you. They advocate that state and local governments drive equity initiatives while running programs that benefit our businesses by providing a trained workforce.

Supernova women need programming money to train future cannabis workers. You need cash to incubate licensees to create more brand and product variety from the old market experts.

Borrow your time

When you’ve found the group you want to support, offer them your time. The exchange of knowledge can only strengthen our industry. Growing skills are transferable, as are supply chain insights and entrepreneurship. Working together to create a landscape rich in advocacy and openness is key to cannabis growth.

Amber is currently programming to help the next trainee in human resource development learn even more about our industry. If your company is hiring, you can turn to programs like Amber’s to hire social justice workers trained in what you need most.

Advocacy starts by asking questions. Amber never believed Oakland would do so much for cannabis equity, but she asked. So she eventually bought a building and made room for 12 production startups to incubate.

“We cannot limit ourselves to the status quo and what we are used to and are afraid of what they will say. We have to be resourceful and bring in our best ideas. I think that if you do that, it is possible. “

The cannabis industry needs to ensure that anyone negatively affected by the war on drugs in the past 50 years has a chance to thrive in this industry. That’s just right. Many markets that have legalized cannabis have not effectively addressed social or racial equality.

It is up to us to make sure we move forward without government involvement to advance our industry with diversity in mind.

When state legalization arrives, the advocacy leaders we support today will work to ensure that the nation implements and embraces social and racial justice initiatives. The more of this work that is done, the better off everyone in the industry will be.
