Anna Duckworth: Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Miss Grass talks writing, conscious cannabis consumption, fundraising and creating the go-to platform for the modern woman consumer
This week I’m talking to Anna Duckworth, a writer, editor and strategist from the Great White North (read: Toronto). Anna is Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Miss Grass—an elevated magazine and e-comm platform for women and cannabis (which the media is calling the GOOP of cannabis). Anna is the Former Head of Content at cannabis brand dosist (once hmbldt) and Managing Editor of The Alpine Review magazine. She also writes a weekly newsletter with her buds called buckslip, which was called one of the best of the year in WIRED. I get that newsletter and it rocks.
In this episode, Anna and I dig into the moment she knew she wanted to become a writer and the path that led her to eventually becoming Head of Content at Dosist; Anna’s personal story with cannabis and becoming a conscious consumer of the healing plant; Miss Grass’s mission and why she and co-founder Kate felt it was so important to create this platform for women; How Miss Grass is using it’s platform to educate, advocate and amplify diverse minority voices in cannabis; the juxtaposition of fundraising for a consciously diverse woman focused company when most investors are not women or culturally diverse and more!
