LADY BUDS tells the story of six courageous women who come out of the shadows of the cannabis underground to enter the newly legal market. With deep-pocketed corporations taking over the industry, these trailblazers risk everything to make their American Dream come true in the very market they helped create.
Lady Buds is a character-driven story that follows six courageous women transition from the illicit market to the newly regulated market in California cannabis industry. But the new legislation, with regulations that favor deep pockets and corporations, has replaced their initial optimism with uncertainty and fear. Those who shaped the foundations of the cannabis industry in the shadows for decades soon find themselves unable to keep up with the stark changes and the influx of big money, leaving many legacy farmers, medicinal patients, and marginalized communities unprotected and unacknowledged.
The diverse voices in Lady Buds include: Latinx cannabis activist Felicia Carbajal, 70-year of African-American retired Catholic school principal Sue Taylor, New York to Humboldt transplant Karyn Wagner, second-generation cannabis farmer Chiah Rodriques, and OG elders The Bud Sisters. They touch upon the history and rich narratives that make up the cannabis community— from the LGBT activists who fought for legalizing medical marijuana, to advocacy to educate seniors about the medicinal benefits of cannabis, to the fight for social justice for those affected by the War on Drugs, and to raising children living on a cannabis farm — these women’s stories and mission challenge stereotypes to reveal that cannabis is much more than a plant, it’s a world of compassion.
