The Women Grow DC meeting in June will focus on Edibles and Cultivation and features two local women in the DC cannabis industry!
Torie Wallace, Founder of We Baked
Torie Wallace is the Founder of We Baked, a cannabis edible non-profit in DC. We Baked works to educate gentrified communities on a plant that once locked them up. All marijuana strains aren’t for every ailment, and We Baked’s job is to teach communities how to research and educate themselves on the medicinal qualities of the marijuana. Torie aims to build a bridge that allows the high class, privileged, medicinal, financially successful and cultivation centers to meet some of best growers and breeders from low income, and poverty-stricken communities.
