CGLA June: The Female Plant Pt. 1: A Conversation with Jamie L. Pearson, Bhang Corporation COO

Last month's event pulled in 300+ attendees in our new location as we continue to grow as LA's Cannabis Community.  What is the most useful gender of the cannabis plant? What gets us high? What reproduces more of the product we love to consume? What is the root of all happiness in the cannabis universe? The female plant.  Males have their purpose. Fertilization/reproduction, industrial usage, concentrates and hemp fiber for sure! But the joy derived from cannabis all is sourced from that which we consider female; the root of psychoactive bliss.  For this and next month's Keynote Conversations, we'll be focusing on awesome women in the industry making huge waves on the global scene.  Joining our emcee, Rico Tarver for a candid conversation on-stage will be none other than Jamie L. Pearson, Chief Operating Officer of Bhang Corporation, one of the largest companies in the space. A second generation cannabis executive, former athlete, annnnnnnd ties to Cypress Hill? This one's gonna be fun, y'all!! CANNOT WAIT.  We ARE Los Angeles' cannabis community.  On June 4, 2019, Cannabis Entrepreneur and High Times 100 Most Influential Honoree- Rico Tarver will be hosting another night of his unique, live infomercial-style events with amazing speakers plus a great networking community. Each Month, we feature the best of the best in California's flourishing cannabis industry. Market leaders have the opportunity to speak on their companies, stories, and how they have (and plan to continue) navigated through Los Angeles' myriad of issues leading up to and through our first year of legalization. All this done in a one-on-one conversation; on stage in front of 250+ CannaGather Community members. Each event will be live-broadcasted across several channels and footage will be archived on Food will be included and there’ll also be an open bar for those interested in adult beverages.
