Figuring out what you need and how to get it is at the heart of entrepreneurship. Session four of Garden Society | The Podcast explores a cannabis entrepreneur’s journey from idea to actionable steps toward building a viable business. You don’t know what you don’t know; this conversation will get you on the path to asking the right questions and building a network that sets you and your idea (or new business) up for success!
Meet Our Guest: Raeven Duckett
Raeven Duckett co-founded Community Gardens, a licensed cannabis delivery service and distribution company in Oakland, CA. Community Gardens is a verified Oakland Equity team and was the first equity team in California to be licensed for adult-use retail delivery.
Currently, Raeven is participating in The Initiative, a cannabis business accelerator based in Portland, OR, where she is developing Hurban Society.
Hurban Society is a cannabis lifestyle brand that curates experience-based sesh boxes that contain items made by under-represented minorities.
HURBAN SOCIETY PRIORITIZES DIVERSITY in all aspects. Hurban Society’s experience boxes contain cannabis and relevant accessories. The most fun and useful part of the sesh boxes are the written materials included that provide a brief history lesson while guiding the reader through the intended experience step-by-step.
Equity Within the Cannabis Space
In addition to her work with Hurban Society, Duckett is a strong proponent for equity within the cannabis industry and a leader within key activist groups. She is on the board of Supernova Women, an organization founded with the mission to foster community empowerment through holistic education, advocacy training and networking. Supernova Women fosters a safe space for hard conversations, and will amplify the messages of our constituents at the local, state, and national level.
