SAN FRANCISCO — Female leaders of the cannabis industry in the Bay Area shared their secrets of success with up-and-coming women who want to stake a claim in the business during a gathering Thursday night hosted by Women Grow.

The networking event featured presentations by female leaders of the cannabis industry, including Lynnette Shaw, the “godmother” of medical marijuana dispensaries; Sherry Glaser, operator of a Mendocino County medical dispensary and “bed, bud and breakfast” inn; and Jazmin Hupp, co-founder and chief executive officer of Women Grow, the nation’s largest cannabis professional networking organization.

“There is a lot of interest by women to get into this business,” Hupp said in an interview. “The idea of these networking events is to get more people involved. We want to see fresh faces all the time at our meetings.”
