One of the highlights of Las Vegas Cannabis Week for many of the industry’s women (and their allies) is the annual Blunt Brunch. Hosted at the IPEC, the gathering of more than 350 people is a jubilant affair mixing education, networking, and, of course, brunch.
The energy in the room was exuberant as emcee MsKindness Ramierez led a “blunt conversation” about how to embrace change. Event co-founders Adelia Carrillo and Parisa Rad spoke about their humble beginnings, bringing a meeting of eight women to one of the most sought-after tickets of MJBiz week. After the formal program, the guests were led to the downstairs foyer where several booths and a well-appointed bar were primed for perusal.
“I’ve been coming to Blunt Brunch since the first in 2021,” said Women in Cannabis Study partner Rachelle Gordon. “It’s been incredible to see the event grow and to witness women building community with their peers.”
