'Cannabis Feminist' is the name of an online community for women that specifically shines a light on women in business who are working towards revolutionizing cannabis for health. This includes companies run by women such as Mary’s Medicinals and Whoopi and Maya.

The 26-year-old behind this online community, Jessica Assaf, went to Harvard Business School in the hopes of refining a new idea for beauty, but instead came out seeing the incredible potential that cannabis has as an ingredient as a wellness product. Reportedly, she says that she is working on a cannabis deodorant that actually helps prevents breast cancer in collaboration with Constance Therapeutics.

As Assaf describes: "The cannabis industry is where the natural beauty industry was ten years ago—underdeveloped and misunderstood."
