#THC2020 | An Interview with Dionne Davidson of Houston Academy of Cannabis Science

According to The Minority Report 2018:

Only 10% of women have positions with cannabis investment.


Women are pushing hard to find more success rather than letting the obstacles stop them. Ancillary firms and technologies are becoming a prime target for women wanting to start their own cannabis business.

Texas’ own #THC2020 vendors, owners of Nu-Wellness Today and Houston Academy of Cannabis Science educators, The Davidson family aren’t letting anything stop them from reaching their hemp goals.

Introduce yourself to the people.

Hi, my name is Dionne. I am the Marketing Director for the Houston Academy of Cannabis Science. I’m passionate about this beautiful plant that we call cannabis, and what it can do to help people. Not only does it offer relief from pain, anxiety and depression, it really is something that brings people together. That’s what we’re all about, love. And, it’s what we believe in.

What motivated you to travel to The Texas Hemp Convention?

This is a big deal in Texas. It’s so new here. Myself, my sister Devae, along with our mother Dr. Davidson, who is the CEO and Founder of the Houston Academy of Cannabis Science, want to be a part of the growth. 

The Texas Hemp Convention is definitely worth the investment. I mean, you can’t put a price on the amount of people that we’ve made amazing connections with.

It’s crazy being a part of the academy. Inside of two years, we have our retail store Nu-Wellness Today, so it’s only up from here. It’s a bonus to have product to show. We’re really excited about where it’s going, and looking forward to the future.

Are you crunk about all the opportunities waiting for you in the hemp market?

So are we!

It was easy to get lost in the lights and movement at the Texas Hemp Convention. However, Dominic Ratliff with Happy Hemp Farmacy was there for one reason only. The people.

Introduce yourself to the people.

My name is Dominic from Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’ve been a hemp farmer as well as a medicinal practitioner for about four years now. I switched over to CBD since [cannabis] isn’t legal in Tennessee, to help people with anxiety, insomnia and stuff like that. 

It’s legal for me to grow [hemp] with our Tennessee Department of Agriculture License, and I just want to put out quality craft products for people that they can enjoy.

Tell us how Happy Hemp Pharmacy got started.

Happy Hemp Farmacy LLC is pharmacy fresh. My friend was a business major at the University of Tennessee. He knew I was growing out on the West Coast. One day I saw him, and he had already started in the brand. I came up to him like, Yo, I grow and I have a lot of experience in it! We just came together.

His brother’s a chemical engineer, so he does all of the formulation. We put a little ad on Facebook for another farmer. This guy in Chattanooga reached out but was growing medicinal headed in Detroit.

We all came together to form this brand. We all have different expertise that keeps the company going.

Always, be dedicated.

Cannabis Open Carry Walks

An Interview with Jody Ladd, COCW Cannabis Activist

Advocacy groups and activists have had an important influence on the evolving perception of #cannabis in #Texas, and the global movement to full legalization. With a dozen cannabis-related bills and resolutions filed for the 2019 Texas legislative session, Cannabis Open Carry Walks (COCW) group and members like Jody Ladd, continue to apply pressure on elected officials for change.

“We came down to Austin today just to show a presence,” Jody Ladd said. “There’s a lot of people behind the legalization of cannabis and supporting some of the bills that’s come out.” (Quillin & Mueller, 2019)

On any given weekend COCW can be seen answering the call to action from Austin, TX to Australia carrying signs, flags, banners, and handing out information to people stopped at stop lights and street corners! In just under a year, COCW and its boots to the ground advocacy have had an undeniable impact on Texas cannabis legalization. Keep reading to learn more about how #TX420PIONEER Jody Ladd overcomes challenges with teamwork!
