They’ve been called Mary Janes, Puffragettes and the Women of Weed. Whatever you choose, women are making their mark on the rapidly growing cannabis industry — and Vermont women are no exception. Ashley Reynolds is President of Elmore Mountain Therapeutics, a company that sells CBD extract and a topical balm. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound extracted from the cannabis plant. People use it to treat an array of ailments, from chronic pain to anxiety. And in the year-and-a-half she’s been in the cannabis industry, Reynolds has made a point of partnering with other businesswomen. "There’s this industry for us and what we call 'breaking the grass ceiling,'" she said. "That there’s a whole culture of women that are harboring and snowballing this awesome effect of this billion dollar sector that is the cannabis industry, not being dominated by men."
