Dasheeda Dawson

To all of the New Yorkers who’ve been praying for cannabis to be legalized for years so the oppressive overkill of legal action against it could come to an end, you can thank Dasheeda Dawson. She’s been actively fighting for the legalization of cannabis in NY for years. She’s the founder of The Weed Head Company and acts as a business strategist for other cannabis companies. Most recently, she’s been given the task of overseeing compliance and licensing for recreational and medical marijuana use in Portland, OR.  She’s a best-selling author of “How to Succeed In The Cannabis Industry,” producer of the “She Blaze” podcast which aims to bring cannabis into the mainstream conversation, and is the founding chair of the Cannabis Regulators of Color Coalition.



Megon Dee

Dee is an incredible story of resilience because she was in fact charged with cannabis-related crimes in Maryland before cannabis was legalized and she still persisted in creating her CBD wellness brand called Oracle Wellness Co.  She got her start working in a cannabis kitchen, learning about the many ailments hemp and CBD can alleviate, and has since become an active educator on the powers of the product. Her shop, based in Portland, Oregon, offers an extensive array of products and services that prove how cannabis can be impactful in every area of life. In addition to edible treats like CBD chocolate truffles, the company also offers a doula program, cooking classes, and workshops on cannabis.
