The Entrepreneur

Jane West-branded bongs, from pink to cobalt blue.

On this episode of Changing Denver, we tell the story of Jane West, “ganja-preneur” and advocate, and explore the role of women in the cannabis industry.

This episode marks the start of season 3, a mini-season highlighting people we’re calling “agents of change,” instead of neighborhoods or other made spaces.

We highly recommend reading John Schroyer’s extensive report on Women Grow. You can find it here.

Also from Marijuana Business Daily, here are the results of their surveys of women in the cannabis industry: 2015 is here and 2017 is here.
