The film examines the intersection of gender parity, social justice, and environmental sustainability in the industry.
“From farms to labs to dispensaries and beyond, the film sheds light on the female researchers and entrepreneurs blazing a trail in today’s legal cannabis industry. From interviews with scientists, doctors, lawyers, activists, growers, and bakers, I learned cannabis is not only an industry but also a movement of dedicated, pioneering women,” says Director Windy Borman.
The host of the Seattle Premier is Eden Labs, a Seattle-based a pioneer of CO2 and ethanol extraction systems used in the nutraceutical, medical and cannabis industries.

MARY JANES: THE WOMEN OF WEED explores the movement to end marijuana prohibition and Borman’s assumptions about the plant. Through a series of empowering and educational interviews with the industry’s “Women of Weed,” Windy’s assumptions are transformed as she discovers how cannabis liberation intersects with the most urgent social justice issues of our time. She learns how this green revolution has significant effects on environmental sustainability, ending the War on Drugs and the Prison-Industrial Complex, and the destructive domination of Big Pharma.
