Legalized marijuana is now a recognized drug in 35 states. The cannabis industry is booming and female cannapreneurs are thriving. Even though it is still considered a controlled substance under federal government guidelines, recreational cannabis has been smoked for centuries to achieve relief from stress and depression and to treat chronic pain and sickness. Marijuana companies also use the non-psychoactive ingredient CBD (cannabidiol) in many edibles such as chocolate, tea and gummies and also tinctures like oils and body lotion.
