Lydia received her Bachelors in Neuroscience at University of Cincinnati and has always been passionate about patient education and the science behind Medical Marijuana. She became a Medical Marijuana professional first by working as a Patient Care Specialist in a medical dispensary, then continuing to work as a medical marijuana processor. She, herself, has been a registered Medical Marijuana patient for almost two years, but has experienced the benefits of Marijuana long before.
Throughout her time within the industry, she noticed a significant shortage of representation, disproportionate access to educational resources, and the overall need for a sense of community surrounding women and cannabis. She brought together WomenCann with the mission of providing a safe space for education, connection, support, and advocacy surrounding Cannabis and Women and with the hope that the integration of gender transformative principles in cannabis health promotion and prevention will transform the paradigm.
