On today's Alpha Woman Podcast we interview Vivianne Wilson, Founder of GreenPort Cannabis, a retail store in downtown Toronto. As a Jamaican Canadian, Wilson’s earliest memories of cannabis involved her grandmother steeping cannabis leaves to make a pain-relieving tea. Her journey towards opening up her own cannabis store was green-lit when this same grandmother approved of her plans to bring this beautiful plant into the light and share her ancestral knowledge with others here in Toronto.
Vivianne chose Nanny of the Maroons as her inspirational Alpha Woman. Join us today as we learn more about Queen Nanny, Vivianne's entrepreneurial journey with GreenPort and more!
