Our next general meeting is November 15th at 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at The Davis Restaurant & Bar in downtown Eugene! This meeting is open to ALL women ages 21 and older who are in the cannabis industry or interested in getting involved!
This month will be the second episode of our Budtender Education series with special guest Emma Chasen of Sativa Science Club!
Emma Chasen has a mission to educate people on the science behind Cannabis so that they may take charge of their own healing. After graduating from Brown University in 2014 with a degree in Medicinal Plant Research, Emma went on to coordinate Clinical Oncology trials with the Brown University Oncology Research Group. When her supervisor refused a Cannabis trial in favor of another expensive pharmaceutical drug, Emma quit and headed across the country to Portland, OR. She found her way to Farma, the popular Portland dispensary that takes a more scientific approach to Cannabis; rejecting the Indica/Sativa binary and instead focusing on chemotypes to determine effect. There she has been able to study the plant and help patients reframe their relationship with Cannabis as medicine. She is now the Director of Education at Sativa Science Club and seeks to spread the educational program through teaching, writing and consulting.
Emma Chasen was recently named Portland’s Best Budtender of 2016 and featured in Newsweek, MG Magazine, Stoner Magazine, High Times Magazine, The Oregon Leaf and Teen Vogue for her work with Cannabis and patients. Her mission is to educate people on the science behind Cannabis so that they may take charge of their own healing as well as to address the need for training and education of budtenders, medical professionals, and the general public.
Afterwards it’s time for networking! Make new friends, exchange business cards, talk about the state of the cannabis industry, inquire opportunity, let yourself be known! It’s time to find that connection you’ve been searching for!
There is a $5 drop-in fee and there will be optional business/individual memberships available for purchase at the meeting. We can’t wait to see you there!
We will continue raising funds for the Rock Paper Scissors foundation, a nonprofit organization which connects victims of human trafficking, sexual, physical, and psychological abuse to resources to help them break free, heal, and become restored. Rock Paper Scissors believes that through education, intervention, and social advocacy they can foster healing and give a voice to those who have been silenced from all forms of abuse. There will be a donation box at the meeting.
