There are a world of history makers in cannabis. A lot of them women. This industry has its “grass ceiling” problems. But it’s also full of liberating opportunities. As a send off for Women’s History Month, Peake Releaf is celebrating our female team members and highlighting their stories. Here’s a look into the lives of..
It’s apart of our mission to do whatever is (ethically) possible to bolster patient advocacy in Maryland. So far we’ve covered tips for discussing medical cannabis with your family and community.
