On March 26th, the DMV region came together for the annual Women in Cannabis Awards Ceremony to recognize the incredible achievements of women working in the cannabis industry.  

First, we want to extend our deepest gratitude to all the women working tirelessly to blaze trails to break through the grass ceiling* in this dynamic and rapidly evolving industry. Your passion, expertise, and leadership continue to inspire us all. 

This year’s celebration would not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors: BLAZE, Modern Luxury, Toker’s Guide, and DC Fray. Thank you for your commitment to empowering women in cannabis. 

The electric violin sounds from Asali McIntyre set the mood for a warm evening.  

We were fortunate to have the talented culinary team from Spilled Milk to cater the event. The delicious food and impeccable service enhanced the day’s experience for all attendees. 

Our appreciation also goes out to the incredible Defined by Design Events team, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure every detail was perfectly executed. 

A special thank you to Zoe Wilder for being our toastmaster for the evening.

Talk about first impressions! This is what a modern dispensary should look like. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. All my silly questions were answered by Lynette like I was talking to an old friend.

Visited from outta town and was referred to Monko by a stranger and was pleasantly surprised with the professionalism. Aysha greeted us with a smile and was haiku to assist us in making the right choice of flower and gummies.

Monko was such a great experience, from the moment you walk in everything was personalized and the concept was amazing. Product is top notch and they also have a really good clothing line too.
