    Elana Frankel, Indigo & Haze: As the co-founder of Indigo & Haze, a highly curated marketplace for plant-based wellness, beauty & living, the company focuses on access (to quality products), education (to learn the truth & unlearn the disinformation about the plant) & inspiration (good design sells). Elana serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Women & Weed, a biannual magazine sold on mainstream newsstands that focuses on the power of personal narratives to bring a better understanding to complex cannabis issues.

    Brittany Carbone, Tonic CBD: Combining her background in the health & wellness industry with her love for cannabis & passion for helping others heal, Brittany created original, plant-based formulations that elevate the effects of CBD to further our body's ability to cope with stress & maintain our essential mind/body balance. TONIC is focused on elevating the conversation around cannabis & wellness & empowering other women to rise up & claim space in this budding industry. TONIC is a self-sustaining company, using CBD sourced from the hemp grown on their organic family farm in upstate NY.
