Rhavin is the owner and operator of LA dispensary Sixty Four & Hope Melrose.
The Los Angeles native is also a mom and wife, who is a firm believer in the healing power of cannabis. She gets real about the challenging over two year social equity licensee process, while imperfect Rhavin emphasizes the need for social equity to allow BIPOC a shot at generational wealth via the cannabis industry.
She also admits she was uncertain about cannabis during pregnancy and postpartum due to lack of information but that never stopped her from the occasional shotgun from her husband. Rhavin is one of a handful of Black woman dispensary owners in Los Angeles, California, you want to get to know her and visit her shop the next time you’re in LA — buy your weed from a Black woman.
On this episode of the Blunt Blowin’ Mama podcast, we chat about:
- Cannabis use during pregnancy and postpartum
- The importance of social equity despite the flaws in existing programs
- Rhavin shares a hilarious edible story!
