“Hacking Health, Wellness & Fitness with Cannabis”
We all know about medical cannabis and its efficacy for many serious medical conditions, but what about for optimum strength and fitness? At this event, we will explore cannabis as a healthy, low-risk dietary supplement and recovery aid for every active body, from beginners to elite athletes. Each of our amazing panelists is on the cutting edge of facilitating life-changing wellness journeys for their clients
Meet our Speakers:
Betty Khronic and Michael Garcia have created the very first cannabis infused energy bar made with 100% organic plant based ingredients that will be beneficial to the high performance athlete, people who live a Vegan lifestyle, and for marijuana enthusiasts who are seeking a healthier “high”. Betty Khronic Energy Bars are an innovative edible that gives the nutritional benefits of superfood’s natural energy and the uplifting cerebral effects of Cannabis Sativa. Katina Morales, aka Betty Khronic, started her love for making marijuana infused foods in her Downtown Los Angeles home kitchen, while training for the 2015 Boston Marathon. A distance runner since college, she was in search of an all natural way of healing sore muscles, alternative to aspirins and painkillers, she came up with the idea of making her own cannabis infused edibles to consume after long runs. Betty started to share her edibles with her network of athletes and active professionals, and after receiving positive feedback, she knew she wanted to create edible foods for the high performance athlete. In September of 2015, Betty and her business partner Michael Garcia met at the Los Angeles Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo after being introduced by a mutual friend who felt they shared the same views on healthy living. A former Senior Military Leader, Mike served for 12 years in the US Army and became a certified chef during his time in service. His passion for plant based nutrition inspired him to launch a raw vegan energy bar company while attending graduate school at USC’s Marshall School of Business.

Who attends? You'll meet women (and men) at all different stages of their career in the cannabis industry. Many will be in the research phase, just learning more about opportunities, while still working day jobs. Some are looking for jobs with existing organizations. Others are starting up their own cannabis venture or ancillary business. Depending on the status of legalization in your state, you'll also meet cannabis business owners & investors who are well on their way. Watch the video to see for yourself.
Why should I attend? Personal connections are the key to professional success. Through the wide variety of events offered to members of Women Grow, trustworthy business relationships sprout from the face-to-face interactions of our members. Together we have more power. As the cannabis industry grows on a national and global scale, women have the opportunity to build a new American industry from inception and redefine the workplace to create environments in which we can flourish and define our own destiny, and cultivate the next generation of industry leaders.
How can I get the most out of networking events? We recommend bringing business cards and a pen to take notes.
