Blunt Blowin' Mama chats with the cofounders of Mendi, a CBD brand that focuses on creating products that can be used by athletes for recovery purposes. Kendra and Rachael, two of the cofounders of Mendi, speak on the importance of representation in the industry. Rachael speaks on the unfair policing of cannabis businesses and tax misallocation by the government that make running their business challenging. Kendra shares her background in Marijuana farming at Oso Verde out of Humboldt County. She speaks on the farm's effort to hire a diverse team of people. Oso Verde recently got acquired, which is a sign of massive success. She shares what went into the success of that business, and her need to step away to focus on Mendi. You can tell Rachael and Kendra are just as passionate about social equity and marijuana reform, as they are about their products and offerings. Mendi is working to be at the forefront of the market with their suite of products. The co-founders also dive into the 'boys club' energy at the leadership level of the cannabis industry, and the need for change. They are shaking it up by being queer identifying, female business leaders. If you are an athlete, a weekend warrior, or just a person who could use relief from physical discomfort or pain Mendi has a CBD product that can help.
