Despite the creative ways the community was finding loopholes for cannabis events, Samantha Montanaro and Lisa Snyder, both with experience in media, event planning and the cannabis industry, felt that something was missing. Something that would be fun and consumption-friendly, but also provide a much-needed platform for education and business development for women like them in the cannabis industry. A place where they, and all women–young women, mothers, wives, queer women–would feel comfortable to be themselves and actually make contacts, or even friends.
So Montanaro and Snyder decided to create the event they were waiting for: Tokeativity.
Lisa Snyder is the Co-Founder & Chief Innovation Officer of Tokeativity, The Global Feminist Community for Active Cannabis Culture.
She is a feminist and plant medicine advocate with over 25 years of digital strategy experience and has passionately supported the self-healing revolution through consumption and plant medicine advocacy.
She has been recognized for her work in Forbes, Rolling Stone, Condé Nast Traveler, Yahoo! Finance, The Guardian, MJ Lifestyle, Travel Portland, Dope Magazine, Civilized, Magnetic Magazine, Willamette Week, and Time Out New York among others.
After losing both parents to cancer in her 20’s, she passionately partnered her community building, feminist event planning, and web skills with fellow event planner, cannabis entrepreneur and community builder, Samantha Montanaro, to create Tokeativity in 2016.
