Shana is now excited to focus her efforts in the cannabis industry, with aims to create safe, inclusive spaces for intergenerational women who are ready to learn and use cannabis for medicinal purposes. Created in 2019, Le Haute Spa’s mission is to provide quality cannabis experiences that are specially curated to not only teach you about the plant, but positively affect your emotional, physical, and mental healing process through the intentional use of cannabis, specifically “cannabidiol” or CBD.
Founder, Shana, created Le Haute Spa because for one, she didn’t see too many women of color business owners leading the charge in the cannabis industry. As a woman who has consumed cannabis for over ten years, she had a burning desire to learn about the medicinal uses of the plant and create a safe space for others to learn how cannabis can truly heal us if we’d let it.
Since we launched in July 2019, we have served 400+ clients through our CBD wellness products, services and event activations.
Did you know that women are the largest consumer of cannabis and use it more than men for health related purposes? Le Haute spa seeks to understand what % of women consume cannabis? For health related purposes? Anxiety? Stress?
Cannabis is not inclusive and remains stigmatized and federally illegal. Unfortunately, it’s still not universally seen as a health and wellness tool, cannabinoid medicine. Although research is limited due to cannabis’ federal classification of a schedule 1 drug alongside heroin, cannabis has proven to relieve conditions such as chronic pain and anxiety.
We are building a user friendly mobile app that will be tentatively launched on July 2021 in the IOS and Android platforms connecting our clients to our wellness concierge. Stay tuned!
