Women Grow Founders Step Down, Name new CEO

In a prepared e-mail on Friday, July 1st, a little past 2 p.m. EST, co-founder of Women Grow, Jazmine Hupp announced, “As of today, Jane West and I are stepping down from our current roles but will continue serving the community as Co-Founders. Jane will be focusing on her role at Jane West, a lifestyle brand that designs cannabis accessories and home goods for women. I will be advising female-forward cannabis brands and continuing to advocate for women-owned businesses.”

In the same e-mail, Hupp announced the hiring of Leah Heise, a Maryland based attorney at Heise & Heise LLP, as CEO of Women Grow. Heise is a regulatory compliance attorney barred in Maryland and the District of Columbia. A former enforcement attorney with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Heise offers unique experience in rapidly changing regulatory landscapes. She first immersed herself in the cannabis industry two years ago, when Maryland passed medical cannabis legislation.

Heise is also a medical marijuana license applicant in the state. She is the President and one of three women partners of Chesapeake Integrated Health Institute, which has applied for a Producer, Processor and Retail license in Maryland.
