The LA Fashion District welcomes “Buds & Bosses”, bringing together the LGBTQ, Medical, PTSD, & Veteran Cannabis Communities
Following their successful March event, “Buds & Bosses” comes back to Los Angeles on June 29th, 2019 with a cornucopia of health and beauty cannabis exhibitors, influencers, and speakers. This Saturday evening soiree is presented by Ali Ganji, president of Persepolis Brands (which recently acquired original underwriter Grassroots Brands) and the Lazarous Experience.
Doors open at 6 pm at this private event. VIP passes include gift bags; dinner, drinks, and music will be served throughout the night. Forums include PTSD, Pain Management, and Cannabis Entrepreneurship. Tickets are still available at (https://www.eventhi.io/event/buds-and-bosses-1225).
Coming at the end of LGBTQ (now LGBTQI plus) awareness month, Buds & Bosses will be celebrating the important connection between the Cannabis and the LGBTQ community (the LGBTQ community in California were the first main activists pushing for medicinal cannabis laws), as well as honoring PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) awareness day (June 27th) by bringing together members of the veteran community.
Buds & Bosses co-founder, cannabis formulator, and patient advocate Mary Perdew, sees her passion project as part of the necessary evolution of cannabis in healthcare, “We’re here to make a statement in a positive peaceful manner. We’re here to empower patients with a platform to be heard and to bring them together with those who have the means to make that positive difference in their lives.”
Mary is a living example of such empowerment, having been able to better manage an often-crippling chronic migraine condition with medical cannabis. She wanted to help others navigate this often-difficult terrain, “Our event offers a safe haven for patients, health professionals, and first-time users to learn, talk about their experiences, ask questions, get to know some quality brands and meet those fighting similar health battles. We invite members of the medical and business community to come in the hopes we can change some minds and some laws while we’re at it!”
Buds & Bosses will feature speakers and panels moderated by co-founder, educator, and musician Hazel Rose. Forums include PTSD, Pain Management, and Cannabis Entrepreneurship. PTSD speakers include Dan Schmink, US Army combat veteran, while the CRPS Pain Management panel (focused on Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) includes such luminaries as Carly Goebel, Hannah Ragoff, Christine Perez, and Melissa Mentele (District 19 Vice Chair, South Dakota).
