The Women of Cannabis Conference is a female driven organization designed to provide events that engage and empower women in the marijuana and hemp industry.
Stacy Thompson is a Michigan native that saw an opportunity to enter into the Cannabis Industry in 2015, and went for it! Stacy has been using Cannabis in one form or another for almost 3 decades, and not until she came out of the “Canna Closet”, did she realize how much education is still needed for consumers. She has created a platform for advocates to business women, to everyday moms to share their stories and make an income by doing so, through in-home parties. Canna Closet will be launching nationally within the next few months, and is already in 20 states, having parties and breaking stigma about CBD and this incredible plant family. Stacy’s past career as a birth doula, helped her ease into the role as founder of the Women of Cannabis Conference, supporting and encouraging women to be brave, be strong, and stand together. Creating a tribe of women who empower one another through networking, collaboration, encouragement, and having a platform to unite us all as one!
Stacy has been sought out by Industry Leaders, but she is determined to create her own brand of empowerment and education through products that she can create and control for maximum results at affordable cost. As the cannabis industry grows, she encourages you to take the leap and find your passion through the plant.
“Together we are unstoppable.” —Stacy Thompson
