The cannabis collective for passionate Canadian women.

CWIC-ly: a little about us

Canadian Women in Cannabis—or CWIC (pronounced ‘quick’)—is a non-profit collective of women (and women-identifying folk) who want to be co-creators of their own cannabis experience in Canada. We’re building a social movement for the acceptance of the historically feminine nature of cannabis and for the de-stigmatization of it in the spaces we live and breathe. By collaborating, sharing, and amplifying our voices, CWIC members aim to advocate for fair, equal, and considerate cannabis laws across the great white north. 


And we aim to do it like the bad ass women we are.

Connect

Through safe events, private communities, and exclusive access to other women with similar questions and life experiences, CWIC aims to harbour a sustainable sisterhood where connection is the key to effecting positive change. We believe that by sharing resources, helping each other out, and genuinely being #dopeladies, we all win.

Amplify

The cannabis industry can be a very patriarchal place: bro culture, big business, surf lifestyles and investment interest can create deserts of space, despite women being consistently represented as 52% of cannabis consumers. CWIC wants to amplify the power of the community we build together to emphasize our needs, values, and the dreams we have for our future. 

Share

We’re co-creators of the CWIC journey with you. By providing forums for discussion, advocacy, and insight, we believe that the industry can only improve in quality and consideration for women as consumers, patients, activators, business people, and employees. By sharing the information we have and bringing a light to women’s cannabis needs, we help the industry see a more holistic way forward.

Empower

Femininity. Empathy. Healing. Growth. Respect. The cannabis plant has long been linked to feminine energy, in both woo-y and non-woo camps. CWIC wants this herstory to remain at the forefront of the conversation. We’ll always aim to promote the healing capacities of cannabis and the importance for women to be informed, aware, and access correct information to make decisions for their families.

Whether you’re a business woman, a student, a mother, a patient, an activist, an educator, a healer or a medical practitioner, we want your voice as part of our song. We plan to regularly poll our members on their thoughts about cannabis legislation, and have direct connections to government groups that can create impact for us all. We want to hear your story, and we want you to be part of our journey.

Economic Club present 'A Budding Industry - Women and Cannabis

 

As the Cannabis industry continues to grow, there is so much for people to learn and discuss. The panel discussion will focus on the role that women play in the industry, the things that are working for and against women -- where women fit in as consumers, what role are women playing on leadership teams and where the actual culture is taking us as a collective. The industry has a unique opportunity to build from the ground up - how can we avoid inheriting inequalities that still exist in so many other industries?

Join the Economic Club of Canada and our expert panel to discuss all of this & more on June 5, 2019!   11:30am-1:30pm | Fairmont Royal York - 100 Front Street W, Toronto
