A new documentary debuted to a sold-out audience in Littleton, Colorado last week. “Mary Janes: The Women of Weed” is a cannabis-inspired documentary film showcasing the women who are dominating the legal cannabis industry. Dope Magazine called the documentary that is an official selection of four film festivals “the most important cannabis film of our time.”
Documentary Highlights Women Dominating the Weed Industry
Directed and produced by Windy Borman, this film was inspired by statistics that showed the budding cannabis industry has the best gender equality of any other industry in the US.
“When I moved to Colorado in 2014 and started meeting successful women in the weed business,” said Borman, “I knew I was perfectly positioned to tell these female entrepreneurs’ stories and inspire domestic and global audiences about how gender parity, social justice and environmental sustainability lead to greater success for all.”
When she set out to produce the documentary however, she was brand-new to the legal cannabis scene. Borman has described herself as a product of the D.A.R.E movement that she grew up in. Growing up, she thought marijuana was the gateway drug. Now however, this has all changed.
Inspiration for Other Women Who Want to Crush it in the Cannabis Business
She hopes the film will inspire other women to step into the business of legal marijuana. There are, after all, abundant opportunities for staring a business in the cannabis industry. Bowan’s desire is for women to see the success and diversity of the women that are dominating this business.
“Mary Janes: The Women of Weed” is a must-see for any woman interested in becoming a boss in the wide world of legal weed. Click here for screenings of this inspiring documentary that highlights women doing their thing in the cannabis industry.
