The Queen of Cannabis, Cheryl Shuman, is also known as the “Martha Stewart of Cannabis”. She is the founder of The Beverly Hills Cannabis Club and believes women are the secret to legalization. Shuman is making it her mission to help them take advantage of a booming business by helping them enter the cannabis industry.
How did she get her crown?
In February, Shuman established a Women Grow chapter in Los Angeles. Women Grow is a networking group that empowers women that aspire to be in the cannabis industry. The group met recently in West Hollywood to discuss money-making opportunities, like cannabis photography and pot-infused baked goods.
Because the women know and trust Shuman, they are always willing to listen. Who wouldn’t want to take advice from the woman who helped Kush magazine go from $150,000 to a whopping $6 million in just 18 months? On top of that, she has met musical legends including Madonna, Steven Tyler and Michael Jackson.
Cheryl Shuman’s achievements her get her nickname “The Martha Stewart of Marijuana”. Her work with female support groups, business investments and her personal endorsement contracts involving “ancillary products in the cannabis industry” have all played a role in her success.
Among these accomplishments, she is also the executive director for Moms for Marijuana. She says many women in the group were looking to turn over a new leaf.
“Bringing those moms into our networking events connects aspiring and current professionals in the cannabis industry. Our members develop authentic relationships via personal contact and networking. While our events are women-focused, our networking series attracts both men and women.”
Support for a cure
A lot of the women that attended the most recent West Hollywood meeting- held at the law offices of Bruce Margolin, head of LA NORML’s chapter and an attorney that defends against all sorts of marijuana accusations- support cannabis as a cure for illnesses.
This really hits home for Shuman, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2006. Doctors discovered tumors in her ovaries and uterus and had to perform a radical hysterectomy in order to treat them. Currently, she has a liver mass and has been receiving treatment since 2007. Her methods of medicating include “daily cannabis juicing programs, raw cannabis salads, cannabis-infused foods, vaporizing and cannabis oil concentrates.”
“I learned about THC and CBD oil extracts, juicing, raw cannabis, edibles and more from the Cohen family at the Tikun Olam Gardens in Israel.”
Today, Shuman is happy to be healing, and she is ecstatic to be partnered with OSLH (OSL Holdings), a development and technology company that is dedicated to consumer advocacy, social activism and the advancement of civil liberties through the power of commerce.
On Mother’s Day of last year, Shuman started her 15-city tour with cannabis networking luxurious events that honored Beverly Hills Cannabis Club’s 20th anniversary. Coming up this month on the 11th-22nd, she will be hosting the Cannes Film Festival, an event in France that attracts top directors and filmmakers.
Most importantly, she is helping women enter the cannabis business.
“Women are the secret to marijuana legalization.”
